I took the 3.2 out for a test drive last weekend and instantly removed the other cars I was considering from my mind. Not only did it look amazing but the power and smooth drive was unbelievable. It's the first car in a long time that's left me excited. It growls at you when accelerating, pulls you back a little in your seat when you floor it and the steering is very responsive - god I sound like a petrolhead not a **yr old woman!!!
Anyway I'm collecting my car next week. No I'm not joking! I was VERY lucky to have been in the right place at the right time and was offered one by the garage that already had extras fitted - ticked all the boxes of extras I wanted plus half a dozen or so more. I initially didn't realise how difficult these cars are to get a hold of and I've had a few people swearing at me for getting one in 10 days!!!!!
This car is anything but manly and boring. Audi have pulled out all the stops with this car and have done themselves proud. I can't wait until next week - feels like the build up to Christmas when I was a kid!
I currently drive the new shape BMW 525iSE Steptronic which I've owned for nearly three years. After an extended test drive in the TT I have ordered the 2.0TFSI S tronic. I believe this offers the best combination of economy and performance. It's 150kg lighter than the 3.2 V6 which means it's nearly as quick and almost £5000 cheaper. The BMW is competent, smooth and fast. The TT offers far more. It exudes personality and puts the fun and excitement back into driving. Handling is first class. It rides firmly, but it's never harsh. It's very stable and quiet at motorway speeds. The S tronic gearbox is a delight--quick and responsive with steering wheel paddles if you want a bit of entertainment. I think the new TT looks fantastic inside and out. The cabin is a beautiful place to be. The quality of the materials is unsurpassed. Everything feels right, from the flat-bottomed steering wheel to the minor switchgear. The driving position is spot on. It is strictly a 2+2 which means only short journeys for short people in the back. However the split folding seats gives 700 litres of luggage space, so it's very practical for two people. I'm expecting good enconomy and CO2 emissions are low, something to watch out for when government green taxes begin to bite. The rock solid residuals will mean that many mass market cars will be more expensive to own than the TT.
If there is a fault with this car I've yet to find it.
I drove this car last week and I was amazed. It's so quick and looks a million times better in the metal than in the brochures.
The handling is great and the acceleration is mind-blowing - I can't wait to get mine in December.
I just called my Audi dealer today and asked when my car will arrive. Unfortunately, it was a bad news for me; it won't be delivered to me in October, delay again due to its popularity. I really can't wait to get my hands on the TT, also the first time that I feel so excited about car. I definitely go to the showroom after 6th September, even I still have to wait another two months for it.
Order a brochure, find your nearest dealer or book a test drive
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…
