    By some strange reverse osmosis (which I can only attribute to becoming friends with the infamous car nut owner of this website), I got swayed into the “petrolhead” community.  The topic of actually owning a sports car never crossed my mind as over the last decade my simple requirement included the transport of baby chairs and booster seats, A to point B obligators of family life.

    With my girls out of boosters and still small enough to be packed into the back of something a bit less sensible.  The window of opportunity presented itself and I found myself stepping out of a practical family car (Nissan Qashqai) and well hammered hatchback Toyota Yaris and started peddling truly amazing little German car around the traffic laden streets of Cape Town.

    There is a lot to be said about the purchase of sports cars (primarily that they are kak expensive) however the thing about the second hand Audi TT market is that you can pick up an iconic status car, that don’t carry the retail price tag and reliably deliveries every bit of enjoyment that performance car motoring has to offer.

    I could go on about why the Audi TT is such a magnificently practical sports car however I think many of the core motivations are purely my own and they neatly fit my lifestyle at the moment. Suffice to say, I have always had a little funny feeling in my jean pant for the subtle beauty and engineering of German sports cars in particular the flavours Porsche that surround the 911.

    So for the cash price of +-R150k I own a truly magnificent motor that has been very well looked after by it’s only former female owner.

    The “project part” includes a number of small fixes that I have researched and will document under this thread. These are dominantly wear and tear and OEM faults that there is a myriad of local and international forums identifying the non OEM fixes 🙂

    My next post will contain the “laundry list”. Off the cuff, I am a computer sort so I can Google with the best of them but mechanically inclined I am not. But I do learn fast 🙂
