I have wanted one of these for some time, but with the kids and
college, etc, etc. Now, it may seem questionable purchasing a car
thats already four years old. But a TT with 30k miles for 17,000.00 I
could not pass up. Its in immaculate condition. Even the driver's
seat doesn't have any creasing in it.
The owner was a Navy pilot always in and out of port; gone six months,
back for three and then gone again. He took decent care of it. There
are some paint defects, water spotting etc. but al in all a very
decent ride. I have not driven a stick for some thirty years but it
all came back to me very quickly. And I have gained the wisdom of
later age sufficiently to know that I won't have the feel of the car
and what it can and can't do for several months yet. The car is rock
solid. It felt a little mushy at first so I checked the tire pressure
and sure enough they were holding about 28PSI apiece. I bumped it up
to forty and it drives like its on rails.
Anyhow, my question is. How bad is this owner experience going to be?
I'm thinking of purchasing a set of Bently CDs, but how much trouble
am I going to run into with special tools and stuff? Can a good shop
do a four wheel alignment or only Audi?
