VEHICLE STORY

Ok, so this is my baby, 2000 Audi TT Quattro (180hp Vers).  Bought her in 2003 in San Antonio, TX while serving as a Military Training Instructor for the AF.  At the time she was "rare" just in the sense that people didn't really know much about her but I learned quickly she was lacking in the performance department.  This was also the first car that I was making decent enough money to modify and do things to.  I was still new to the tuning scene and being more performance oriented than show, yes I know it's kinda a contradiction seeing as how I have a TT lol, I still tried to spend the money on mods that I figured would improve performance. First mod was a Stratmosphere Diverter Valve which of course nothing was really noticed from.  Soon after came an Autothority performance chip and that's where I noticed a difference.  I would routinely take the TT out at 2am to beat on her...windows down, no radio, no passengers just the car, me and SA open roads.  She couldn't have had more than 205hp at the time and that's probably crank.  I wasn't whooping people at the stoplight though I did take my fair share of egos but it was fun.  There were and even are now much faster options, cheaper than what I paid but I've grown with my TT and I'm keeping her with me.  I've gone from 180hp to roughly 290hp and eventually I'll reach my goal of 400whp.  My TT isn't a track car...it's my race car for the street and soon it's full potential will be realized. I've always wanted a Porsche 911, well closest I've gotten was my Audi and since I don't have the Porsche I'll make my TT a Porsche-killer instead....
