Hellaflush in the Upper West Side


On my way home the other day, I ran into three lowered sporty German cars, all within a block of each other. Here is a first-generation Audi TT looking fine with a small drop on some performance rims. I’m glad to see that it’s a design loved by designers and architect and gearheads all at the same time.

    hard to tell from these photos, but is this the rare o.g. TT that escaped the spoiler retrofit campaign? they looked so much cooler without them! too bad about the chin spoiler, which i’m not crazy about either. and the vanity plate. i mean, really?

      wow, I honestly did not even notice that vanity plate. just…wow

      also, I hate to burst your bubble, but the car actually has the little ducktail on the back, it just didn’t fit in any of the photos. Let’s just keep the dream that the car is unspoil(er)ed.

      Actually, also, love the Fangio tunes, man – the Davey G. vid was awesome too

    as a MK1 TT enthusiast…i am thoroughly embarassed by this example of a badly modified TT—-however this is what happens when 2nd hand values dip below the $10k mark—-all sorts of weird concoctions start to appear!
