Have always wanted a TT and was more than pleased when I could get my hands on one, however, I wish I had read the other reviews before trading in my two year old bmw one series for one. I wish I hadn't, although its great to look at and better to drive the endless problems are a nightmare!! Despite the very low milage and full service history the problems so far have included: new dashboard due to fuel light problem, keys not working, electric wing mirror knob snapping off, two engine coils going and the list goes on, oh and the engine ignition light remaining on
I have recently purchaced my 180 TT and i love it a super car in every way a real head turner. my only gripe is visibility a factor i am now coming to terms with.
If you want a stunning looking car with a great interior and want to turn heads this is the Baby!!
Am I the only lady driver? I absolutely love my TT. The running costs are high but you pay for what you get I say. Handling in wet weather isn'the best but who wants to rush anyway, in a car like this you need to cruise more and take it in. I can see why the other reviews arn't so good. They want to keep these cars all to themselves. So I'm not going to let you in on all the secrets. You'll just have to get your own. If you can. Not many owners want to part with them.
The joys of driving the car are marred only by the running costs (as other reviewers have noted). The second major service (36,000 miles) cost me £385, and there was no additonal work required.
The repeated failure of 'coil units' has also been a running sore in the ownership experience - particularly now the car's out of warranty. It's not the cost of replacement which bugs me (which is free), but the inconvenience of getting it fixed and knowing there's a risk of other failures from the remaining units.
Dealership customer service standards leave a lot to be desired, and have seriously coloured my enjoyment of the car.
The car itself is total quality. It's practical for a two-person family, and drives particularly well at motorway 'cruising speed'. The interior quality makes it hard to find a replacement which equals its feel.

I once owned an 04 GT (the version with the stupidly heavy clutch - a built in gym for your left leg). I've driven both editions since and must say…
I bought my TT 2 years ago, second hand (99 model)with 40k on the clock. Since then it has done 40 more. Service costs have been £250 a time. Timing…
