Halloween Special - Brian O'Neill's TT
by Adam McPeake
Picture the scene. You're walking through a grave yard late at night - it's your short cut home and you make this trip every night. But tonight it's different, tonight it's the Halloween weekend. With this in mind, you carry on until you come across a black Audi TT, slammed to the ground being driven slowly through the grave yard by a vampire. That's what roughly 10 people experianced the other night when we shot this feature. Hopefully we didn't scare them too much.
We picked Brian's TT for this feature for a couple of reasons. One, it looks damn evil - and awesome and two, what other car would a hot vampire lady drive? Duh.
This 2.0T FSI has had Stage 1 Revo tunning software installed by Performance360, it's currently putting out 260bhp & 280 lbf/ft. So it's got the power, but also the lows. Brian has had a 4 way Air Suspension system installed with the AccuAir E-Level management kit - which is operated by touch pad with 3 preset heights. We love this system! And ofcourse, when the iPhone app is out - he'll be getting that fitted also with help from Northern Irish air specialist John Pedan.
To add to that dark, evil look - Brian has opted for 18" BBS RSII's ( 18x8.5 ET 25 & 18x10 ET 30 ). The centres have been painted Volkswagen United Grey and the lips have been polished. He also has carbon BBS emblem caps.
Inside, Brian has full charcoal leather with alcantara door cards, Audi OEM Navigation Plus media unit with iPod connectivity in glovebox and an upgraded multifunctional steering wheel also fitted by Performance 360.
Finishing off the outside, we have an Audi OEM Black Edition grille, an OEM Bentley Fuel Cap, OEM Audi exhaust tips and US style orange markers within front headlights.
The perfect car for our Halloween special!
Brian also prides him self as a member of local car eutherists group Shed62. Check out their site for some awesome builds and updates. shedsixty2.wordpress.com
