New member and I need a garage!

Post by U_M_D_C »

So I finally decided to finally buy a TT.

Got the one I want, black leather, mint interior, and in lovely dolomite grey. You know, that grey that reminiscent of the 1995 TTS roadster concept

......but it needs a cambelt change.

.....and the belt driving the alternator is slipping a bit.

.....a lot.

Luckily, this is going to be a weekend project car not my daily driver, so I've time to get it done.

I know the score, the TT Shop are doing it for £420 with the better metal water pump impeller but it's a bit of a drive from Maidstone....

So is there anywhere in Kent that is any good that people have used?

Any TT/Audi Quattro specialist over this way that anyone would recommend?

Hi and welcome to the TTOC, sorry can’t help with the garage question but that price from the TT shop sounds good.

I would recommend quattro tech over the TT Shop but they're even further.

Welcome to the OC I wouldn’t go for the metal water pump impeller they run hotter the new plastic used on the impellers is much better and will not fail like the old ones
