I bought my TT a year ago and I love it. Even though it is now four years old it performs superbly. I recently though about changing it due to the impractibility in terms of space but I couldn't part with it. Even though there are thousands of TTs on the road, every where I go people want to talk to me about the car and all my friends are jealous. The only downside for me is the running costs. Only needed servicing once in the first year although its done 22,000 miles but that service cost me £485.00. Four new tyres cost me £560.00 and I am constantly filling up at a cost of £47 with just 350 miles to the tank. All said and done, if you go so far as making the decision to drive what is a lovely car then you soon learn to forgive the expense that comes with being a proud owner. Would seriously consider upgrading to the 3.2 V6 at some stage.
A fantasic drive, quick where it counts cross country. Leaves the other sports cars in the village (Porche Boxtser and EvoVII) standing.
Quiet and economical. Don't normally go with this type of car, but from Oxfordshire to South Italy in 1 day at average 30mpg at a very high average speed.
I was originally looking for a 225bhp coupe but this ex-demo 3.2 DSG came up at a nearby Audi dealer. It had 3000 miles on the clock and since then I have covered another 9000 in five months or so.
For the sort of long distance work I do the car is superb - loads of torque, more than ample power and the security of four-wheel drive. The car feels rock solid whatever the conditions.
The DSG box works very well, though occasionally it can take longer than expected to change to a lower a gear if it thinks you want a higher one. It has to 'resuffle', which adds half a second or so. When in Drive mode it can also change up quite early.
When braking for a corner, changing down using the paddles isn't always as smooth as I would like either. The answer could be to use the Sport mode, but it is a little too aggressive for general use.
The engine suits the car down to the ground - smooth and powerful with a meaty burble. It feels more like a GT than a sports car, happier on wide, fast roads. Steering a little heavy but it grips like nothing else.
Relaibility has been faultless (as I would expect) and finish inside and out superb. I'm still 9000 miles away from the first service - which I find remarkable for such a high performance car.
I'd certainly recommend one.
Excellent car, great performance. The only thing letting it down is the amount of visibility from within the cabin.

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…
