Best Audi TT 8N Body Kit?


Audi TT Tuning

Since there are several body kits available for the MK1 TT, the decision of selecting one has been hard, but so much fun! My shortened list had 2 kits (Regula and Hofele) but I recently got insider information from DMC Concept… They are building an RS4 type body kit for the TT 8N. Incredible! (See it here) I will definitively got with theirs. No questions asked.

This Arjo Tuning kit is the first kit I see that modifies the headlights shape. It looks like the hood is modified in its lenght: the headlignhs are partly covered, only displaying 60% of the full light. Well done!

I really like what DMC does. Their front splitters, front wings, side scoops and rear wing are very nice. So nice in fact that I bought myself the 3.2 rear wing. Something else: they have the nicest rear diffusor add-on I have ever seen. Very rare, I only saw it once, but it’s sooooo cool.

OSIR has gone where no one else has ever gone before. They modified the fenders, to add an air intake. Very nice! I might go for a pair, since I need extra cold air under the hood. OSIR also manufactures a carbon fiber hood and other goodies.

Regula Tuning Type A Body Kit Audi TT 8N Mk1 (Germany). Funny Story: I contated Regula Tuning almost a year ago with a photoshop of a MK2 body kit adapted on the MK1 body. I had asked them if they would consider making this kit. Their answer was “no”! I guess they have been asked many times… The end result is not bad, but it’s far far away from the original MK1 line.

Ah Reiger. So close to perfection! Well done, very nice demo car too. Front and rear bumpers are well executed with mached design. This kit is very nice although it does not change the car look that much. (compared to other kits with the new Audi grills)

This kit is also very cool. Bieng that it’s entirely molded with the front splitter! Just one thing, don’t hit anything, cause you’ll need a fiberglass kit to repair… But nicely done. The side flaps are also unique.

I very much like the Seke Tuning kit. Although it is very exensive compared to the average kit, (close to 2000 Euros) I find it has the best front and rear bumpers. Front: Look at how far up the two “air intakes” go; It’s close to the headlamp which is rare in the TT 8N body kits. It obviously cancels the headlight washers. But another very cool aspect of the front bumper is that is incorporates Audi A6s LED foglamps. The rear in also very nice. It’s molded to the car lines and show a rear valance similar to F1 race cars. Very well done Seker!

    Can you address the issue on how to make your tt rs look like a race car like: http://www.freshnessmag.com/2010/10/14/raeder-motorsport-audi-tt-rs-race-car

    1. For example, how to get that huge racing spoiler from audi/aftermarket.
    2. Are there any knowledgeable/good way on getting the appropriate decals. How much are we expecting to pay and where to begin.

  10. Marcus Jeffrey says:

    Yes, the Seker Tuning Kit are very amazing.

    I buy this Body Kit from seker tuning!

  11. chris says:

    You completely forgot Audi’s OEM bodykit by Votex. I’ve been running the front end of that kit for a few years now and while its less ostentacious than the majority of these, it keeps the car’s classy appeal. Maybe I’m oldschool since I’ve had my TT for since way before the MKII, but I’m not a big fan of the MKII conversions, I’d rather just get an MKII.

      Hi Chris,

      You are right!
      I’ll add it to the list right away!

      As far as classy vs too much, I get what you’re saying.
      But then again, every taste is different! :)

      Thanks again,

      Andre

    Hi my friends
    I have one TT mk1 8n 225 hp from 99. The first one imported to Portugal. After all this year enjoing this great car ( 285.000 kms ) , i would like to install one full Body kit. How much i need to expend to buy the Uberhaus nº 20 or the Regula nº 30 ? My Car is the original grey, but maybe i will change color to Black ?
    My thanks in advance for any information about
    Cheers
    Carlos

    • Hi Carlos,

      I you read my last post, you’ll have an idea of what I’ll be answering you…

      To answer your question precisely: The Regula is definitively cheaper. In Canada-US dollars, you would have to spend about 2K for the Regula Kit + at least 4K for a good paint job. Not sure how this translates in Euros. (say 4K?)

      BUT the real question is: Are you willing to spend a lot more on your car and how long do you wish to keep it for? Thing is, if you start putting (investing is the wrong word…) money on your car, you’ll never stop. Once you have the kit, you’ll want suspension, then brakes, then sound system, door hinges, engine mods, etc. In a few months, years, you’ll have spent a lot of € on your TT. Not a bad hobby though, rest assured, but you’ll spend more than you expect. And your TT will always be worth about the same price. Think that for every Euro you’ll spend on your TT, its price will only raise by 10% of what you spent. And that is if you find a buyer that wishes to buy a 99 TT that has been modified…

      The other thing is, if you wish to keep your car for a (very) long time, you maybe have an opportunity to keep it original and have something other’s don’t. It will be worth more in 10 years in its original state & color than your Regula TT. Especially if its the 1st TT imported in Portugal and Arrow Grey. Keep it original I tell you. Maybe refresh its paint (same Audi paint plz!) and maybe add nice wheels and lower suspension. But keep the original wheels and suspension in case you wish to bring it back to original in a few years.

      Now if you still wish to go for the Regula, go for it. But IMO, you’ll be ruining the first TT ever imported in Portugal…

  19. Carlos Baptista says:

    Thanks Andre

    I will go for Regula but i will keep every spair part to change later again ,if i want it back again to original. I`m not intending to sell this car never. But you are right, as soon as you start making changes you d`ont stop anymore. Do you know and recommend me one company to provide me the Regula kit

    Best wishes
    Carlos

    • Hi Carlos!

      Good thing. Go to Regula directly for a better price.

      Best,

      Andre

      • Carlos Baptista says:

        Thanks for your help about Andre

        Just one opinion more. The original weels are 17″ but the car, will look nicer with 18″ or 19 “. Do you think with some poor roads in Portugal, i will have more trouble with bigger weels ? I have new tyres on the original 17″ one`s but they are not so nice for me anymore. I can sell them to anyway. Installing the body kit, i was attracted to change for bigger weels

        Cheers
        Carlos

  20. Carlos,

    Go for for it. I live in Quebec Canada and our roads are worse than they are in Beyrouth… no joke! :)

    Andre

  21. Do you know where I could find the “R8″ like stripe on the side for a mk1 tt?

  22. Scott, they ship to the US! You can contact Niyazi Seker. If you wish, I can introduce you. :)
