Excellent car - I wasn't even looking at this car at first as I was contemplating getting a BMW coupe, but this compared to the 320d was just a much nicer car overall. I was coming from another 320 though, so thought an Audi would be a good change. Nothing to complain of as yet and I've done about 6000 miles in 3 months. Pleasure to look at and drive!
I bought this car brand new in November 2007 and have used it for a good mix of motorway, rural and city driving, clocking up around 13000 miles. It has been sensational, absolutely nothing has gone wrong, and if you want to cruise up the motorway at around the legal speed limit listening to your ipod through the excellent standard sound system, I often easily achieve 40+ to the gallon. I would never go back to BMW after this, it makes smile every time I see it in the morning and its as gorgeous as the day I bought it.
I have waited a Year and 20K miles to write this review so that it be fair, unfortunately that has given me 1 more years worth of issues. First the Good Points, it looks great and when it's not in the Garage it is great to drive.
In 12 Months it has had to have new Air Bags installed, new Fuel Pump installed, new Steering Rack, the leather on the Seats is virtually ruined and has been since around 10K miles, also parts of the Body have had to be resprayed due to paintwork bubbling.
To top it all Audi Customer Service has been shocking, never calling back and constantly making excuses. I should have stayed with BMW, lesson learnt.
Previously had a Mk. 1 Roadster 180 Quatro which I loved but this Mk.2 Coupe is even better. In my view the Quatro is a must for the extra roadholding available and putting the power down safely. The acceleration is tremendous making overtaking both safe and fun. Consumption is averaging around 30 mpg. but with very little town driving included. My only gripe is the lack of a spare wheel or an option to at least buy a space saver. Had to buy an extra 19" alloy and tyre to take on long journeys and they don't come cheap! A tube of gunk and compressor should be illegal. I would still highly recommend this car to any one thinking of buying one, it is well worth it for the driving pleasure alone.The looks are a bonus.

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…
