Santa came early this year! This spring when I took the Passat buyback I was looking at an Audi TTRS by the time the buyback took place the cars I was looking at were no longer available. All of the other ones at that time were overpriced for the mileage on them. Found a 2012 TTRS black, which was my preferred color with 24,000km. One owner never winters driven, garage stored beauty. Car is mint no dent, scratches, or chip. The only drawback is the dealer in Moncton, NB. Car was listed as the base model but turns out it has exhaust/tech packages. So stoked can't wait to pick it up on Dec. 27th. The MK3 GTI will be going up for sale this spring.





Mods on the car:
  • 034 Motorsport Rear Sway Bar
  • 034 Adjustable End Links
  • 42 Draft Design Shifter Bushings
  • Phenix Engineering Shifter Bracket Bushing
  • United Motorsport Stage 1 Tune
  • Girodisc fully floating front discs
  • Girodisc Street & Strip brake pads for the front
  • 034 Motorsport carbon intake
  • Motul 600 Brake Fluid
  • Stainless Steel Brake Lines
  • Podi - Boost, Oil Pressure, Oil Temp. Gauge
  • Outdoor Car Cover
  • Sach Performance Clutch
  • Secondary CAT removed - CTS Mid Pipes
  • Headlight mod - black-out, Profile Halos, Sequential DRL's, Red demon eye, bluetooth relay
  • Sequential mirror turn signals

Still to install:
  • CTS Down Pipe
  • Forge Intercooler
  • Black-out emblems

Looks great! Very similar spec to mine I just have panther black. Have some mods on mine as well, and I’m fairly local to you as I’m in mississauga. We should try to get a little RS meet together come spring.

That would be great, I usually attend Berlin Klassik at the end of the summer. You ever come out to Eurokracy? What mods have you got on yours?

I attended Berlin klassik 2 years ago, and eurokracy 3 years ago. I’ve got UM stage 1, KW clubsport coil overs, 034 intake, 034 rear sway, OZ superturismo LM, catless midpipes, center mufflers cut out, sport exhaust zip tie mod, 42DD shifter bushings (must have for 50$) and HPA dog bone mount. I might be missing some things lol.

Some nice mods, FYI the shifter bushing can be had here for $17.00 from Phenix Engineering, got them for my 1998 GTI and the 1991 Corrado.

Picked up the car today first impression is the sales guy was right the car is mint. Second this will get you some traffic tickets if you don't keep an eye on the speedo. An additional bonus again is the car came with Audi car cover, Weather Tech and TT floor mats. Up early tomorrow morning and 10 1/2hrs ride home looking forward to it :D To bad had to get it dirty they did a great job at detailing it :sly:

Man this car is an absolute blast to drive.

Looks good:) enjoy the trip and try to stay out of trouble, the UM tune makes it even more vulnerable to tickets LOL. Are you going to drive it during winter?

No it's getting parked for the winter. Who did you get the UM tune from?

I got it from EU autowerks in woodbridge!
Thanks for the info.

Made it home safe, trip was a little tricky this morning, light snow and New Brunswick HWY 2 seem to have a higher centre crest then QC/ON. With a car that feeds back the road it really felt weird at first and took a bit of getting use to. Once out of NB still had wind blown snow till I reach Quebec City was clear sailing after that. Even with only all season the car did well, was expecting a harsher ride but was surprisingly please with the ride quality.

After 1,100 kms, bath time!
