My first Audi was my current one, a 2013 TTRS, which I found in February of 2020 with only 12,500 miles on it. I had wanted one ever since Audi first announced in 2011 they would bring over the 8J TTRS for a limited two year run only. Life happened, priorities changed, and I thought I had missed my opportunity of everything finding a low-mileage one, until I literally stumbled upon this one. I throughly enjoy mountain runs in it, made even better by my wife being a fantastic passenger who shares my enthusiasm for great cars and great people. In August of 2021, I planned and led the Carolinas chapter’s first annual Whiskey Tango Foxtrot (a nod to my 26 years of military service) run, a 100+ mile out and back up some of the best kept secret roads the Upstate region of SC has to offer! Including the highest point along the entire Blue Ridge Parkway at 6,053’, as well as the highest point in South Carolina, Sassafras Mountain, the views were just as appealing as the twisties. I look forward to organizing more mountain runs, promoting the Audi club through local events, and doing fundraising with the 809 Foundation, a Back the Blue charity organization out of Rock Hill, SC.
