    Re: 458 - ON FIRE IN BRAZIL!!!

    Itsme:

    I had one of the first Audi TT in November 1998. It took more than a month to install the new features. I think the conversion wasn't done by my Audi dealer. I had several Audi rental cars in this period, I tried all there different types of cars. Everytime I asked my dealer (big one in Munich) when the conversion will be finished he told me that Audi couldn't tell them a date. So I think it was done by Audi and not by the dealer.

    When I received the "new" Audi TT with all the safety features I decided to sell the car. The TT looked terrible with the rear spoiler. I bought my first Boxster. I never regret this decision


     

     I also had one of the first Audi TT . Mine was sent back to Germany by truck  to have the ESP installed and the rest.  

    But I asked not to have the horrible spoiler ....and so my car looked much better then all others Smiley

    I also asked not to have this spoiler. But my Audi dealer refused my request.

    It was a good disappointment because this was the reason to buy a Porsche. Even my minister of finance (wife) supported this decision although the loved the TT

    ISUK:

    Perhaps the German market was treated differently by Audi but I had a car in the UK and it went back to the dealer for the mod's. It looks like the US market was the same www.autobuyguide.com/2000/12-aut/audi/tt/recalls/index.html

    The ESP installation was not a dealer job definitely. If a customer wanted his car to be fully factory compliant the car was sent to Germany from any part of the world. I'm sure about that. Some customers didn't care very much or were talked out of it by the dealers and left their cars as they were delivered to them or perhaps only with the addition of the spoiler that was the easy part of the job.
