    I hit the front lip of the TT

    I hit the front lip of the TT yesterday night after clubbing and was wondering how many of you have done the same... And is it going to be expensive the fix that? Or its easily detachable and replacable?

    As long as it's only the black bottom piece, no problem...easily detached and should be about $250.00. I have an extra one, but haven't used it yet.

    If you are talking about the black lower extension. Yes it is replaceable. It is meant to take the curbing. Your tt was shipped without the piece installed. It snaps in place very easily. I would guess about $200.00. If the damage is to the underside and not too bad, you may be able to lightly sand it with emery cloth. Whatever you do, I would spray some black undercoating on the underside (after taping the fascia, of course.) of the lip to prevent future minor damage.

    I have an extra front lip for those unfortunate times that the front side gets scratched. A repair and painting cost me $125 CDN to fix. The lip is easy to remove, there are 2 allen key screws and a number of clips to slide off, about a 5 minute job. A new non-painted but primed lip costs under $300 CDN.
    The painted look is worth having despite the hassel of the rare scrape.

    Or you can get the new CF lip for 2000+

    Re: I hit the front lip of the TT

    IMO? Unless it looks like you're driving a broken piece of junk (as opposed to a _real_ car that gets driven in the real world) just leave it alone or make an acceptable repair and forget about it for now.

    Eventually, when you get another dent (or worse ) and bring the car in for that repair get the lip repaired properly too. Meanwhile, for the interim you don't have to worry too much about hitting something down there again.

    I would leave it alone until its an eye sore. I have scraped mine already too.

    Re: I hit the front lip of the TT

    does anyone know where to order this part and what the part # is

    Re: I hit the front lip of the TT

    Just order it from your local dealership. They should be able to get it for you. Tell them you want the front spoiler lip for your Turbo.

    Something I did a long time ago after lowering one of my 911s,--I put a little sticker near the steering wheel for awhile that said "LOW SPOILER!" just to visually remind me. I was able to adjust in a few weeks.

    It happened to me last month. The new lip was $300 at my dealership (parts, labor, tax).

    Cost me nearly $500 to replace a friends that I crushed on a parking stop...
