Your car looked fantastic at Beamish!

I can only apologise about the fat bloke in the picture in front of your car on Main Street. :whistle:

Thought I'd pop a few more pics on while I've got my ancient laptop fired up.

My car was used for the 225 mechanical shots in Mark Davies' buyer's guide, as they wanted a totally stock example.

Image

My husband's TT was used for the QS mechanical shots and we went for a 'photo shoot' at Lowndes Street Garage in Bolton, so I took a few photo's myself.

Image

And here is a photo showing the other cars that were being used too (V6 and QS):
Image

I had bought a few bits of engine bay bling, but couldn't fit them until after the photo shoot, it was so hard seeing them sitting there, but not being able to put them on. As you can see, my engine bay looks more presentable now, although I have a long way to go before it looks like a certain yellow TT!

Hi Karen!
What a lovely little write up! and no you didn't go on!!! What a good tale and I would have been just like you rather annoyed about the price being enlarged! Your little TT is a credit to you and I love the four rings at the bottom corners! I always wanted a grey tt when I went to buy my first mk1 and ended up with an 02 morsano red in colour with a very impractical silver interior and it was a punk to keep clean! black interior on a farm is always recommended!!! Go girl!! ;)
