New member with an 8J V6

Just saying a polite hello.
Have a silver V6 as already stated came with full history and have just had the aux belt changed just as a precaution.
My first TT but previous have included xr2’s with 2i’s, Clio 16v, 5 series and possible one of my favourites imported mr2. Then it’s been company cars and vans. So I treated myself to a TT V6 as I fell in love with it when it was launched all them years ago.
Had car for 3 weeks now and so far saying how much I enjoy the sound of it simply is not enough. It’s has just developed a sticking near side door handle and silicon lub has not worked to fix it. Also the near side repeater has just packed in so fitting a new one after work on Friday.
Only mod I have planned at some point is to have wheels refurbished they are the Audi split rims and just need a small amount of tlc seen some on eBay with the centres darker than the rim which I’m liking.
That’s it for now.

Thankyou.
Near side repeater now replaced what should have been a 5 minute job took 2 hours as someone has rounded the grub screw.
TTOC window stickers fitted in rear quarters and loose clips replaced from dual channel dash cam hard wire.
Any recommendations for a detailer around Hull area I know car has a few years on it but what harm can some tlc do?

Have you had a bad run in with them? Not been to them as yet.

I do grin when I put my foot down I have to admit.
