Okay, finally some pics after all the work was done. Gutting and cleaning of the interior, mind-numbing buffing and waxing of the exterior, all new brake rotors and pads, new valve cover gasket, bunch of rotted hoses replaced, new oil cooler, power steering pump, serpentine belt, spark plugs, oil cooler, oil change, coolant flush, and gorgeous new wheels which I absolutely love. I also installed a boost gauge, blacked out the rear emblems, and sprayed the faded front grilles satin black.
Still have a little more work to do, but the car runs great. I'll be powder coating that fuel door satin black. The wet okole seat covers are there (came with the car) because the leather seats are shredded.

I've been running wiring for a backup camera on this Audi. Good Lord, what a pain in the ass it is running a wire from the back of the car to the front. Fishing wiring through small spaces, etc.
The car doesn't really need a backup camera but I think they are neat, plus I need something to do.
And you turds are getting pictures when I'm done whether you want them or not.

I've been going on drives every evening and greatly enjoying it. Finally sorted all the rotted and split hoses under the hood which had created boost leaks, and the car runs strong.
The car also has a power glass wind deflector that comes up behind the seats which wasn't working - the belt commonly deteriorates. Fixed that as well.
Funny story here. I'm having a pool heater installed, so I had an electrician out to my home. I met this guy fairly recently and he's a good guy, he owns his company. When I opened my garage door, he was smitten with my little TT. Just loved it, was fawning over it. Said he never had a chance to drive one, etc. Then he mentioned he had an Audi himself.
Me: "What do you have?"
Him: "A 2020 R8 Spyder."
Yes, this guy has a $220,000 R8 Spyder, looks like this, he showed me the photos:
He also showed me the pictures of the Lamborghini he had which he called a "piece of junk" and was "difficult to drive".
Evidently his little company treats him pretty well, which is also enlightening. While these kids go to college and rack up tons of debt for a worthless degree, it's the people in trades that are racking up the cash: electricians, plumbers, painters, carpenters, etc.
It's just funny how much he loved my car.
