Seal kits are cheap and fairly easy to do on the bench. If you buy the genuine one you get assembly lube as well which makes the job go a lot easier. Its not particularly expensive from TPS.

Will see if I can get one tomorrow but don't have an account with TPS.

Still using it everyday until the CV-19 thing.
Worked from home for 7 week so it just sat there.
Wife wanted to use it 4 weeks ago but the battery was dead

Used it this week as now back at work - so yesterday gave it, its first wash in 8 weeks and I felt better for it



Better 8)

A little while ago, I took a trip to Andy’s place (pre coronavirus days) to buy roof bars. He let me have a drive in his TT - that’s why I bought one! His is a really nice, tight car, and I was instantly struck. After an 8 month search, I found a fully specced TTS in Glasgow, which needed some work, but I love it! Thanks Andy ��

Your welcome and glad you got sorted

5 years of ownership and not much has gone wrong to be honest (change the oil and filters every 6k miles)

Yep - agree and enjoy driving mine every time Ido - with the change of the suspension it tweaks the handling to another level.
