The Ceramic Coating I used on the TT: avl.kg/sc2
(for $25 off your order use code: samcrac )
After repairing its mechanical and suspension issues, we clean and ceramic coat the TT making it shine again. This is the same car as an R32 for a fraction of the price and it's every bit as good. Is it the best $5,000 sports car bargain?

  • Thank you for the code I ordered 2 bottles!

  • Dude you need to calm down with all the promotional advertising. I watch your videos a lot and they’re great, you’re knowledgeable and I enjoy them. I pay for SEnewss premium to avoid ads , then I gotta listen to you talk about sponsors and ceramic coatings for 10 minutes. It’s too much man

  • Best way to protect the headlights after sanding out the fading is to lacquer them with conventional clear coat, it sets properly, contains the necessary UV protection and won't need re-applying every time you wash the car.

  • I see you are advertising Filippo loretti I have placed an order with them in October of last year and the parcel has not been received. It can't be tracked. I have made several enquiries with them and their response and customer service has been poor to say the least very disappointed. @filippoloretti

  • that TT is modern classic, in Europa they are jumping in price like crazy.. they are twice up from last year

  • Plumbers putty for clay bar is genius. Thank you Samcrac!!!

  • This channel could be amazing if we focused on the car repair, but Sam has this terrible need to Troll the ever lovin’ crap out of you 😡

  • Let’s hear the profit you make when you sell this

  • Jesus, detailing no no's....hard to watch.

  • simple answer ur an idiot with money with nothing better to do

  • bro i am only here for the music. lol

  • It is pretty quick for a Auto I have the same motor in my Jetta but it has a 6 speed and speed is the same at the top of 2nd

  • Hey Sam really enjoy your videos just wondering if you knew where the tt came from looks alot like the one I help my step daughter get that she allowed to be repod twice. The first time I retrieved it from Kansas City auction. Second time I said your on your own! Was very neglected and had bad motor mount but I was thinking it had a shark fin on top.

  • Great tip with the plumbers putty Sam. We pay stupid amounts for something thats essentially the same thing.

  • Use a Headstrap go pro... 😊

  • Who the hell pays $3k for broken audi tt? I sold mine (225hp, manual) with some cosmetic issues for $2k. You should pay $3k for one in decent condition.

  • We really don’t give a crap about this shitty TT

  • Buffed up alright watching from this side of the pond😜

  • Watch all the time looking forward to you finishing the Ferrari build

  • Samcrac the watch salesman

  • How long does it take a vehicle to move from Upcoming lot to go to future then a sale date?

  • What's going on Sam? - your vids are becoming less frequent and content getting a little dull. You need another good and complex project.

  • I love watching you fixing cars

  • Used your raycon code in the uk and it works thanks Sam

  • Is the color of the front end fascia supposed to be different? Looks like it doesn't quite match, but can't tell if it matches the side moulding color?

  • I laughed really hard when you made the comment about "in this business time is money".

  • 5 stars. It gives me so much hope to try and do this myself. Plus it’s me wife’s dream car. Love this.

  • Does anyone know an affordable or free online VIN website??

  • I have always liked the looks of the TT, should have bought one years ago.

  • I like the maintenance episode keep them coming.

  • first time i see 2 promotions in one video any way the audi came out so good

  • 3***

  • Uh yeah.....70% off with SAMCRAC70 plus $50 gift card which is the same 70% off plus $50 gift card that Filippo Loreti is currently offering ALL online orders

  • Please take off the shades when making commentary to the camera... just saying.

  • Sam, you absolutely should never use a typical wax on plastic headlights, because they normally use petrochemicals as solvents. Every headlight plastic, whether it is acrylic or polcarbonate (Lexan) will be permanently damaged by any petrochemical or ammonia. According to the companies that make the plastics, this WILL ALWAYS cause yellowing and crazing over the years. Worse than UV exposure. FWIW, make sure to keep petrochemicals off the lenses.

  • Isn't it illegal in the US to use a phone while driving? In the UK recording that footage would be 6 points on your licence (12 points means you lose your license) and a £200 fine, also if you have had you license for

  • The fastest way to your next hairdressing appointment

  • Love the red wings shirt!

  • I liked this one.

  • 4 stars headlights look new again. The paint looks fresh. Did explain about how the roof will need touched up. I recommend

  • Do you have a SUV for sale?

  • Wow you really shined up my TT it almost looks like new again. I give you all five stars

  • Samcrac keep the cheap builds coming! All my friends love it

  • Sam got busted taking video of that guy in his 180SL or 300SL. Surprised you didn’t know what car that was Sam

  • Sam, you have to be careful using the putty there’s oil in that putty that could stain it, you never use that putty on marble or granite because of the oil in it

  • 4.8star for it it's a nice fun get around car

  • 4/5 great motor, I personally do not like the platform, but it would be a great track base for anyone getting into the market. Low centre of gravity and decent weight distribution.

  • Thanks for the 200 dollar detail Plumbers putty gets you 5 stars ✨

  • Now those lights came out well.

  • I'd give this a 3.5/5 for a few reasons. The "detail" was a rushed affair done with broad, sweeping strokes. Kind of like painting a Rembrandt with a fence brush. Attention to the true details were skipped like the accumulation of compound along the roof strips and not getting the corners of the grill with the ceramic coating. Overall this is a great 10 footer from the front or sides, but from the back (which is what most will see of this little German piece) the view is fantastic. It's called a "detail" for a reason though.

  • Great job, Sam. Will give it a solid 4 for effort. You have heard poor old Chevy just wanted to be a Cadillac. Well, this or old Audi just wanted to be a Lambo. You have done your best to make its dream come ttrue.

  • 5 Stars! you improved the look drastically, much better that the OCD Ammo guy would . Especially the Plumbers putty, bought some today. Absolutely a great little car. Bought the same car for my son when he graduated from Engineering school. He loved it. Great heated seats in the winter.

  • It's go ⭐⭐⭐⭐. Considering how it looked before the detail, the finished result was surprising. It did look a little rushed because you can see the missed spots in the grille but still impressive results. I'll be checking out the ceramic coating.

  • 4.5 🌟 Pretty much the best reconditioning you can do in your yard.

  • It's a great video you show alot that can be done on your own with a few tools thanks

  • 100% Agree! I bought a 2004 3.2 roadster a couple of years ago and it was the cheapest in the UK. Spent around £1500 fixing it up including half shaft replacement, swapping out some broken modules and a service plus all the fluids, but it’s now absolutely perfect, everything works as it should! Yes it sounds great already, but you can make it sound even better for free by drilling some large ~30mm holes in the dirty side of the airbox. You get more induction noise and it just sounds incredible. Another cheap mod for the V6 is what’s called the Flapper Mod. There’s a vacuum operated valve in the right hand tail pipe which the ECU controls to pass drive-by noise regulations and to stop some exhaust boomy-ness at certain revs. I’ve plumbed in an electric air valve so I can open the flap for more noise when I want it. It does get a bit boomy at ~55mph so I can switch the valve back over to the ECU control for some peace. One more thing, I notice that like almost all the radios out there in TTs the button logos have been worn away. You can buy new button decals to properly recondition the radio and make it look like new!

  • This car Was my sons dream when he was small he loved the seats that had the baseball type look and now he is 20 he can not ride it yet because hear in Italy it has too mutch power

  • The longest ad i ever watched.

  • audi's are soooooo shitty

  • 5 stars. Almost like a new car ;).

  • I shop on Copart all the time I hope I’m a winner kids would be super happy 😊

  • 👍

  • A bit of tlc and it works

  • Anyone having a %70 off sale is not a good company to spend your money on.

  • Does anyone know the name of the track at the end of the video/outro?

  • ⭐⭐⭐⭐ sam really tried his best to restore my TT. He even offered a chicken dinner with the detail and restore. Who does that? I'll def be bringing the rest of my fleet to him

  • Ferrari makes shoes?

  • 4.5 stars....looks a ton better...just needed a few extra details and i would have given 5 stars...wheres the tire shine??? lol

  • Wow those headlights look so much better now!

  • Hi sam love ur videos. I have a 2000 audi tt 10 years ago. Love the car and i regret selling it. Man if only I could get it back 😊😊😊

  • Cute little cars..id drive it

  • 4 star ive seen some crazy detail work here in Florida

  • Ehhhhh.

  • 4 stars, the attention to detail was impeccable, Sam not only focused on restoring the original paint condition but took into account future external conditions this vehicle would be exposed to. He also was conscious of the time constraint but didnt sacrifice the quality of work when restoring the headlights.

  • 4 stars. Exterior looks great, headlights like new. Want to see the wheels cleaned up a little more and want to see a full clean out of the interior.

  • Pretend this Audi TT was your car and you just watched me detail it; now leave your Google review along with a 1-5 star rating 👇(A WINNER HAS BEEN CHOSEN, THANKS FOR PARTICIPATING)

    • @Scott W. Congratulations to Scott W. you're the winner of this contest. Please email Samcracauto@gmail.com to claim the Puma Prize Pack

    • @Samcrac forgets about his contests like he forgets about his projects. Rip Audi detail rating my you sit in the field along side greats the likes of Ford Focus RS, Bentleys and Land Rovers 🤣🤣🤣

    • 4.5 stars. A lot this is due to the fact that the car can only be brought back so much and really requires more than a clay bar. Still, it looks better than 95% of cars for sale. I can't believe how people sell a vehicle, even some dealers, and it looks like a dirty sticky mess inside. NOTE - you absolutely need to be using gloves to apply that stuff. The one time I tried to use something similar without protection on my hands, and sorry if this is a little gross, but my pee was almost black the next day. Stay safe - those chemicals in that little bottle are not good for your kidneys.

    • 4.5 🌟s. What a difference! Car looks great again, like an Audi TT should. Job well done!👌🏽

    • 1 star....I brought this guy my car to clean and he wouldn't shut up....Not to mention he brought his chicken...I felt like he was trying to sell me a used car that I didn't need. I would give him 0 stars but he did fix my headlights like looked like doo doo. I expected my interior to at least get vacuumed, but instead he just removed it and wished me luck. Now I gota put it all back together, and I'm missing clips. Maybe I'll watch some SEnewss videos and figure out how to put it all back together.

  • In this episode Sam puts lipstick on a pig

  • They say never change the Tiptronic transmission fluid..

  • Ferrari finally!!!

  • I can couch for the Armor Shield ease of use. It was so easy I thought I screwed something up!

  • The Ferrari......................JFC...........hurry up and finish it.

  • OMG... did you just say you are going to "finish" the Ferrari????? OMG!!!

  • You kinda half-assed that "detail" job on the TT, just like a used car lot would.

  • Brooooo you used a LOT of compound lol

  • Wait just a minute now, I want to ask a question. Is this ceramic coating is the same as the one that detail shops and window tinting like Lumarr use? Because they asked for $800+ to do a 3 layers of coating on my Camry.

  • Thanks man, a video like this just makes my day😎👍

  • I bet Sam ceramic coats his chickens

  • I’ll buy the tt I have one a 1.8t and a vr6 is the dream

  • how do i save money for BUING a watch.. that's just what i don't get..

  • Sam travels back in time to September of 2004. (Reset the clock Sam.)

  • to be honest, that Segway into the advertiser was pretty slick...

  • buying stock in plumber putty NOW!

  • Clay first, then compound. Looks really great now!👌

  • You're supposed to wash the car first then clay them polish then seal. Sam needs to watch some ammonyc.

  • You should do an off-road build. Maybe an FJ or 4Runner.

  • If you're still worried about the transmission just order a manual conversion kit from the guys at GatedSix. It's backed by the folks that made the first gated six-speed manual 430 Scuderia, and they have kits for the 360.

  • I had a 2004 R32...your engine sound is epic bro! ❤️

  • Disappointing that this car was not featured more in depth and detail like some of the others you have done, and that the 'mods' talked about just didn't really happen beyond the suspension upgrade. Have been thinking of buying one of these V 6 versions to upgrade and was looking forward to seeing you really improve it and go through completely it over several episodes.

  • Sam you sound like a Honda owner. “It feels quick”

  • A non-car-guy friend of mine saw this kind of Audi on the road the other day and thought it was the top of the line Audi R8 😂
