My old shape Type R was a hard act to follow, but my new TT, delivered early March, has it well beaten for fantastic driving experience particularly the higher gearing and torque. I'm delighted with the quality interior and the way Audi have evolved and improved the design. It's well specced, so no one needs to go mad on the options list apart from metallic paint and parking sensors. Those who complain about rear seat space can't have had a test drive. I'm delighted with it and find excuses to drive it.
I AM SOOO BITERLY DISAPOINTED Audi what have you done! All your cars have always been the same boring blend of blandness and boredom - but the TT was different, it was an induvidualistic icon. And you've ruined it. It's like any other Audi. Go to any Audi showroom and everything looks the same. Audis are cars for prison wardens tainted by boredom. And now the same evil has overcome the TT. Audi, do something fast you boring bunch of communists.
I took delivery of my new 2.0 TT Coupe last Thursday and I must say it is a fantastic car.
The performance, handling and overall finish for this car is superb, certainly exceeding my expectations. Thankfully, the gears are not too close together, reverse gear requires pressing the gear stick down, then applying a hearty shift to the left and I have managed to hit both the break and accelerate pedals at the same time. My only gripe is the fuel economy. Audi figures state that the car will average about 35ish miles per gallon. At the moment I am currently getting 27mpg. However, given the nature of this car 27 or so mpgs would be expected. If the car wasn't as exciting and genuinely fun to drive, I would save quite a bit on petrol, but then again I didn't buy the TT to sit in the drive-way.
This is a great car which looks superb (a vast aesthetic improvement on the previous model as it doesn't resemble a bubble) and is well worth checking out. Be under no illusions as to the mpg and it is also very easy to spend a small fortune on factory fit optional extras.
Currently own a 350z Tiptronic, got this as a replacement till repair work on rear ended accident.
This TT is quite possibly the most dull , cataclysmically boring and annoying car I have ever driven. V6 Engine is good but lacks power, gear ratios are ridculously close together and very easy to go from 2nd to 1st gear but end straight up into reverse.. nice!!, no feeling through steering whatsoever , chassis is like drive a mould of jelly with jelly wheels, I am currently averaging 14.6mpg and this is just unacceptable when I get an average of 26 mpg from the 350z. The seating position is aka 1960s Italian ape position and doing over 200 miles is very tiring. Pedal position is designed for a midget. Knees knock steering wheel when changing gear. Wind noise is as though there isnt a back window at all and when you are paying nigh on £36k for a specd one, this is just a terrible disappointment in every respect. If you are a normal human being do not waste your money.
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…
