    My car

    I have driven this car on a number of occasions as I wanted to make a desicion between this or a RX-8.

    I chose the Mazda due to its practicality and cabin but I did prefer the Audi's turbo performance. Specification is excellent but whoever you are or whatever your circumstances, rear passangers need to be considered and the Audi lost on this point and this point alone.

    Great car!!

    My car

    I decided to take the plunge and bought my TT via the internet.

    I flew to london from Shetland and then drove back. What a machine, I did 2000 miles before getting back home. It was worth every penny.

    It's superb in every way.

    I wish I'd bought one sooner. It's the best car I have owned for looks, build, interior and status.

    Pure driving pleasure.

    My car

    I've owned my TT for two years, after having previously owned the three Ms - MGF, MX5, MR2, and I can quite honestly say it has been the greatest car I have owned.

    It's got its faults - one visit to the UK TT Forum website will confirm a plethora of problems which have dogged many owners. However, the smile it puts on your face is worth all of that.

    Some reviewers have criticised its "anodyne" handling, but let me say this - I would much prefer the smooth and reasonably rapid progression of a TT journey to the seat-of-your-pants ride of say the MX5. (This comes from the bitter experience of finding myself facing oncoming traffic on a busy roundabout one wet morning when tha Mazda decided to show me its tail-happy tendencies.)

    Ride is reasonably good and grip is superb. Performance is certainly adequate as well. My fuel consumption has rarely improved above the low twenties and depreciation is becoming a factor as Audi have launched a number of lesser-powered models.

    The quality is fab and practicality good, as long as you don't want to transport anyone larger than a 12-year-old in the rear, and equipment is fairly generous.

    Would I buy another one? Well its likely to be replaced at the bottom end of 2005, so I think I would hold fire until then, when it is likely to face stiff opposition from the proposed Porsche Boxster Coupe. If anyone wants me to conduct a back-to-back test over a weekend, I'll be more than happy to oblige!!!

    My car

    Curvaceous looks, exhaustive standard kit and athletic ability combine to make this the first car that I haven't tired of quickly.

    The 180bhp has plenty of oomph and is not noticeably different in ability from the 225 in normal driving conditions - so why pay the extra. The interior is a joy and the pushed forward, narrow screen mean that the world approaches in widescreen technicolour.

    Lit-up the instruments look other worldly and the switching arrangement is Bauhaus minimalism. The 4WD feels assured in the wet and on ice and snow - perhaps too assured.

    The boot has plenty of room for this sort of car but don't offer lifts to anyone who will have to go in the back unless they are real small and have paper thin legs.

    The only downsides are intermittently working temperature and fuel guages, which Audi can't seem to fix (in fact they make them worse so I've given up). Three years in though and I'm not ready to pass this on just yet.
