Default 2001 Quattro Roadster, but no power roof?

Hello. I just bought a 2001 TT Roadster last week. It's the Quattro with the 225hp. Everything in it works great, but I don't have a button for the power roof. The only buttons I have between the seats are for locking the car, nav, and the windbrake window.

I've looked it up and everywhere says that the Quattro came standard with the power roof. It's not a big deal to use the roof manually. I'm just really confused as to why I don't have it.

there was a small run of 01 TT Roadsters that were made without the power roof (I bought one new at the time). When I purchased mine I was told that they had run out of the parts and decided to continue production rather than halt while waiting for the parts.

Consider it as a "Rarity" or a bit more "Collectible" in 20 years.
Regardless, its one less thing you will have to pay for to get fixed.
Chalk that comment up to experience in owning a 2001 Audi TT Quattro 225 hp convertible.

our 225 was originally delivered with a manual top (was one of that small batch of cars).

We never took delivery of that car. we refused it. The top was horrific to operate. I am sure in time it would get better/easier.. but for the amount of money the car cost..we wanted a power top! plus the dealer was only taking 800 bucks off.

Exactly! My "winter sanity project" 2001's top went halfway up (went down fine), until this morning when it decided to stop trying altogether.

Since a pump and struts would be well over $1000, I ordered a pair of manual struts for $200.
Should be an interesting downgrade, as the manual struts are upside-down compared to the hydraulic ones.
Best part though: it'll lose some weight when I get the hydraulics all ripped out.
