What used Audi TT sports will I get for my budget?
How much does it cost to run a Audi TT sports?
The newer diesel is the most economical model with lower emissions, and therefore cheaper road tax, and official fuel economy of 53.3mpg. Second-hand values are high, though, so you'll pay a high price for one. The 2.0-litre petrol isn't excessive, with 36.7mpg and 183g/km of CO2, and better than the V6 model, at 27.4mpg and a high 247g/km of CO2.
A service history is essential, and with cars less than three years old, it's best to stick to franchised dealers. This will cost more, but you'll reap the benefits when it's time to sell the car on. There's a good selection of quality independent garages who will care for older cars.
So far the second-generation TT is proving durable, with few reliability problems. However, it's hard to know how it will fare long-term. The original TT can become troublesome in later life.
This is a sports coupe so insurance premiums reflect that and you need to budget accordingly.
