Oh no! Major Collision, the TT is Dead!

A light snow fell on our roads early this morning. As I was driving to work, around 5.30 am, I knew this wasn’t going to be a good day. We were told by the weather people that the snow would melt later in the day, but still, I had to drive to work with my summer wheels on the car…

And summer wheels equals’ summer tires… And summer tires on snow equals no hard breaking.

So I had the radio on, listening to the April 1st radio pranks. I was actually laughing my head off when I saw a road jam about 500 meters ahead… It seemed like some had hit each other, forming this huge impenetrable, metal road block in front of me. I stepped gently on the brakes as I was coming rapidly onto the stationary cars. And that’s where it ended for me.

There was nothing I could do! Stepping on the brakes, even just a little, made the TT glide towards the point of no return. Even the steering wheel didn’t respond to my commands. The summer tires were no help at all…

As I was trying different brake-gas-steering combinations, the TT was still gliding… towards this very stopped white van now 100 meters in front of me.

I tried everything to steer away, with no luck. My only option would have been an ejection seat, if I had one.


How else can I describe it? Here’s a picture.


Oh yes, I should also tell you that today is April first and that this is not a true story! 🙂 Some may have noticed that this is an MK2…

I started this blog just recently because I have so much fun modifying my MK1 TT... that I need to let the world know! And it's also a good reference when looking back at my mods. Ciao for now! Andre
