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.
I have owned this car for some 10 months now having bought it from a dealer in beautiful condition with only 11,000 miles on the clock after two years. However, it is unquestionably the most frustrating car I have ever owned because it never seems to stop going wrong! Just before delivery, audi had to replace the Haldex control system following its failure. Next problem was a loud cracking sound which appeared to be coming from the rear of the car when accelerating from a stand still. This was traced to the rear anti roll bars which were replaced. Then it was the driver's window which periodically decided to lower itself after reaching the top of its travel. And now I have the persistent, and seeming insoluble problem, of intermittent loss of power(sometimes partial, sometimes total)when accelerating between first and third gears. The car has now been back to the dealer 4 times and still no cure, despite the fact tha
I bought this car from new and had a number of faults go wrong within the first 6 months. The worst being when i came back to the car park from work and the windows were down which the dealer told me 'was a blip in the software!'. I have had to have the steering rack changed, engine sensor changed, the heated seat button replaced and the car reprogrammed as it kept draining the batteries on the key fob.
The dealership in basingstoke which i bought it from was very poor at the aftersales service.
All that said, now the car is in full working order it is a great drive. It is solid a holds the road remarkably well. The DSG gearbox is great once it is in sport mode and is very exciting to drive. I have had the car for 18 months now and it still puts a smile on my face everytime i get into the driving seat and the 'feel good factor' is always there. I would definetly recommend the 3.2 DSG TT.
I have owned a 225 Quatro for 18 months and have been thoroughly pleased with the car and its performance.
It's an 02 model with 40,000 miles on the clock and the only problem I have had was an engine sensor fault, which was replaced under the extended warranty I purchased.
As a family man, it has not been the most practical car in the world, but the kids still managed to squeeze in the back for short journeys. Does the car still turn heads? You bet it does. Would I recommend it when you're at your mid-life crisis? You bet - birds love 'em!

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…
