Epic thread, amazing car, although i can't help thinking, wouldn't an R8 grille suit it better as it's lower/wider?

Cheers, ive spent enough on bumpers and grilles.
I dont wat the TT to become too gangsta and its a case of when is enough enough.
The build is coming towards the end now, harware wise, with just some ceramic coating to be done and a DSG aftermarket oil cooler from APR to be added. There is however some additional DSG ECU revisions required to allow me to run 1.8 bar as opposed to currently running 1.2 bar.

Hi, she is my daily at the mo.
I also use her as a tourer and she will be hitting the strip and some selective track days.
Just an all rounder really.

Took the TT to ADI over the weekend to join up with other TT peeps and to enjoy a good day.
I pre-booked to go on track but wasn't sure about going out so early but Julie made the effort to get up early.
Julie has never PAXed me on track and it was only my second visit myself.
The track looked damp and greasy, which some cars found out to their detrement.
Running 16 psi and the competition haldex the TT felt planted and grip was helped with the PS3s all round, there was no wheelspin or sliding which others complained of, after the session.
This was not a race, but a chance to push ones car to close to its max limits for the conditions..







I managed to go out for a second session in the afternnon, but as it was raining, i felt the track was becoming unpredictible and came off early.

Over the last week my throttle map has been pulled back as it was too sensitive and i also setup my EBC correctly.
