Default Newbie to the Group - 2004 Audi TT 3.2 Questions

Hello,
I have been "lurking' the last week or so, trying to learn as much as possible before bugging the forum....hope these questions aren't "wrong'. Here goes....

Purchased a 2004 Audi TT 3.2 with 92K miles about two weeks ago. Ran vin checks/car fax etc. everything checked out, however I am sure there is more work coming up. I had the oil changed, front brakes and rotors replaced, and wheels balanced and rotated. Before I go to the 'next" thing, what does the forum recommend? I am looking at the 95k service, but don't want to go down that road, if trans/timing etc work needs to be done. The top is not great, back window looks like they used silicone for a 'do it yourself"...so have to get that worked out.
There was no other major service that I know of, however the previous owner was the third and he didn't have much detail.
The Audi is running well, it is great top down and excellent ride. Haven't a convertible to drive in 30 years, so I guess this is mid life fun again. Thanks for the forum, great threads and knowledge here.

Welcome in. Sounds nice. Color? Which wheels? Read up on the window gluing. Some have had success but others have had to replace top. There are special suction cup clamps available that should help a lot. Careful not to let it leak. The central locking module is under there and doesnít like water. Are door locks and trunk release working properly? Does your windscreen go up and down smoothly and evenly? The drive belts sometimes fail and lose teeth.
Not a lot of 3.2 owners on forums. From what I do know, they are quite reliable. You have a timing chain rather than a belt so no timing belt service. If itís quiet with no rattles you are good. Bought my roadster two years back. Iíd always been a coupe guy. ( Iíve had the blue coupe for 15 years.) The roadster is pleasant when weather is appropriate. Enjoy.
lots of helpful guys here and on QuattroWorld Mk1TT. Also on the UK TT Forum. Makes ownership of these old cars much easier. Beware the mod temptation ;-)

J. Patterson,
Thank you for the advice! Color is light silver, ebony interior. Will look up the window glue items. The central locking module is okay for now I think, the locks and trunk release work properly but only in the car, the key fobs don't work, so that could be work in the future. The windscreen does not go up,will look into it. hey, thanks again, i will keep checking and btw, no mods for this one. I figure just to keep it up to 'code' is mod enough for me!
