I hear what you're saying, but given the fact that Audi TT sales have fallen off the charts, I think it's time for something more aggressive.
Although the 2004 models will soon be at your dealer, Audi is still selling leftover 2002 models! They've even had to go as far as calling brand new 2002 models "certified used cars".
The TT is already a "niche" car and conservative upgrades won't help it recover sales. If Audi doesn't get aggressive in upgrading the TT, it will go the way of the Dodo bird. In my opinion, that would truly be a shame.
#414 of 512 TT oil and filter change
Jun 05, 2003 (7:16 pm)
Has anyone changed done their own oil and filter change on this car? Can you pull the oil plug without jacking up the car? Can you get it up a pair of ramps, or do you need a jack? Where is the filter? The plug? How much oil does it take with a filter change? Is there a good manual (owner's manual doesn't recommend owners change the oil themselves)?

I'm no mechanic, but I usually change the oil on my cars. However, changing the oil on my TT is too much of a pain, so I take it to the dealer. Even the local oil change shops don't want to mess with it!
It seems like it would be very difficult to do an oil change up on ramps because you have to take off the plastic shroud that protects the underside of the car and you probably won't get enough clearance. If you try it, be very careful putting your car up on the ramps because the front spoiler is pretty low to the ground. You could scrape the bodywork if you're not careful--an assistant is essential.
Please let me know how it works out if you decide to do it on your own. Good luck!
#416 of 512 2004 TT -- when will they go on sale?
Jun 23, 2003 (8:12 am)
Has anyone heard WHEN the 2004 TT's will be offered for sale. All I hear is 'the Fall of 2003'. Is it September, October or November? thanks!

I don't know for sure but I would think it's coming out around Sept in US. The 2004 TTs come with DSG and I'd love to see how that performs!
#418 of 512 What's a good LOUD replacement horn for the TT?
Jun 29, 2003 (6:36 pm)
Hi there! I have a 2001 TT 225 quattro coupe, and I can't stand the wimpy little horn. In addition to sounding more like a "poot" than anything else, I believe that it's a safety issue as well - people don't see small cars like ours sometimes, and offending large vehicles may not hear the anemic stock horn if we try to warn them that we're next to them.
I know that most car horns are 12V and should (theoretically) fit fine. My question is this: what is a good LOUD replacement horn for the TT? I'd like something as ear-splitting and obnoxious as possible, as long as it's legal. If I could find a horn that sounds like a firetruck horn, that would be ideal in my opinion! I'm also looking for something cheap - I'm currently unemployed from layoffs, and looking for something as cheap as possible to achieve the goal at hand.
So to recap, does anyone know of a good LOUD replacement horn for the TT?
#419 of 512 IS THERE ANYBODY OUT THERE?
Jul 11, 2003 (12:29 am)
That's one of my favorite lines from Pink Floyd. "The Wall" sounds great on my TT's Bose--better with the top up of course. Sorry for the silly post, but I just didn't want to see the forum die due to complete lack of interest.
#420 of 512 black interior color differences?
Jul 22, 2003 (8:34 am)
Is there a difference in the shading of the black interiors between years? (Talking mainly about the leather). It seems the 2000 and 2001 are pure, jet black, while the 2003 is a softer, more charcoal black. What's 2002 like?

#422 of 512 2002 leather
Aug 19, 2004 (8:33 pm)
My 2002 TT has a jet black interior. Haven't noticed the lighter black in the newer TT models, I'll have to look for it the next time I go in for service.
