    My car

    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.

    My car

    Having previously owned a 350z and a TT 225 Mk1. I can say this car is the best 'compromise' around. Pity about the front wheel drive and fuel economy - I work from home, doing mostly short journey's. It's actually worse around town than the 350Z. 16 MPG on short runs vs 18 out of the 350. Great on a run though (37 MPG). How do manufactures get away with their figures? Look at the US website for True MPG figures, they're more accurate.

    Still it handles fairly neutrally, which is well done to Audi. A very nice car, but my girlfriends 2007 Mini Cooper S is sportier and 'seems' faster. The traction control in the Mini deals with the power better. Off the line however, with the S-tronic it's a great drive. Swift, not fast.

    Anyhow the 350 fell to bits on me and the Mini is a too feminine for me. I hated the gear change on the original TT, so short of a 911 this is the best I can afford. I might trade it next year for a TT-S. Can't help but think I should of had the 3.2 despite the reviews.

    My car

    The new TT was always going to create two opinions, you either love it or hate what Audi have done with the TT name.

    I have owned mine since launch back last year, I have done over 15k miles in mine and I have to say I LOVE it!! I drove the old shape 225bhp, and ordered one prior to even seeing it. It really was a totally different ride. The 2.0 Turbo really makes a lovely noise, the cornering is even better than the old quattro - don’t know how Audi did it, but they did!! oh and it's faster by the way.

    If you want to claim that the old shape TT is iconic then that’s fine, all I know is the TT has evolved and in my opinion is better for it. The cars looks meaner and you have more room inside, the dials are sporty and the servicing (longlife) is amazing!

    Its a car that will become (sadly) commonplace, but the reasoning behind it is simple - desirability, and not many things beat the TT for the money!

    My car

    I have owned 2 TT MK1`s, I bought them (1) for their iconic looks (2) for their build quality, I enjoyed every second I drove the cars, and the thumbs up received from bikers. Then came the devil in the guise of the MK2. Thinking my Mk1 would loose value I sold it 9 mths prior to the release of the MK2. I was given a preview by my local Audi dealership, the cover was taken off, what had I done, I had sold my icon,my pride and joy for what, a none discript coup`e,I hated it, all of it, inside and out. OK it drove better but if I wanted the best driving car I would have bought a Boxter. I took delivery, kept it for 6 mths hated it every second I had it, finally sold it on Ebay and bought a year old SLK. Audi took the cars character away and cheapened the inside, when this car comes towards you it looks like any other Audi other than a slight difference in headlight design, you cannot tell it`s a TT until it is on top of you.When the MK1 is comming towards you and is a dot in your vision you you know instantly it is THE ICONIC MK1 TT. This car is as fresh today as it was when it first appeared. It can never be replaced. The MK2 looks like a Nisson.
