Picked up this beauty last week, however only just got around to M Performance parts getting fitted so wanted to wait until I had the finished article to post. To say overwhelmed would be an understatement. What a car, and what an engine!

Coming from a Mk2 TT 2.0 litre with 211 bhp this is on another level. Still being relatively careful with the engine so looking forward to hitting the 1000mile mark. currently sitting around 650 miles.

Couldn't be happier with spec I went for: Mineral White, Manual, 719m Jet Black Alloys, Black Leather & Black Gloss Trim, Heated Seats, HK audio, Pro Nav, Front&Rear PDC, reversing camera, apple car play (actually very handy), Sun Protection Glass, Windshield with Sunband.

All came in at a smidge under the 40k calculation for increased car tax which was a big plus too 8)

In addition I've added: MP exhaust with carbon tips, MP splitter, MP diffuser, MP side sills painted in MW, MP carbon spoiler, MP grills, MP gear lever, Auto ID Carbon mirrors from the previous group buy.

Only issue, and it might be obvious after I point it out, is that the paintshop wasn't able to match the MW on the top 3rd of the diffuser to the MW of the car. To be fair to the dealership they bought me in to show me and point out they weren't happy with the match either before i'd even seen the car. They are having it blasted and repainted, this time with the car there for reference. I have been assured they will get it sorted 100%. I gather MW can be a right PITA to match.

Loving the car, got the unpainted fins on the splitter like mine (pics to follow) in contrast to the white and my I looks mint. The car is crying out for a Matt black roof wrap!

The decisions made around where to put the paint on the rear defused looks very good and one that I haven’t seen before.

Cheers! I was surprised that nobody on the forum has done it this way so far. was going through all the pics and would see comments on painted ones of 'it looks too painted' and comments on unpainted ones of 'it looks too unpainted'. So i thought why not split the difference and paint the top 3rd. I'd done a bit of photoshop work to test it out beforehand and it hasn't disappointed. Just need to get it taken back in to get properly colour matched.

Good spec, but into the dark nights in winter you will appreciate the adaptive lighting for sure! Enjoy...

Looks sweet, just needs black kidney surround and gloss black roof wrap to be even more sweet. Enjoy....
