    A3 2.0T DSG Vs. TT 2.0T DSG

    Hi, I wondered if anyone has driven both of these cars back to back. I have recently bought my wife a 2.0T Sportback and have also bought myself a TT Roadster for the summer

    I cant believe how different the cars feel with the same engines, the A3 seems so much more alive, just tap the throttle and it goes where as the TT seems much slower on take off but then maybe more grunt later in the revs? I am thinking of mapping the TT to make it seem as good as the A3!

    Any obvious reasons for this, im surprised but I prefer the drive of the A3 because of the throttle response...

    Interested to know peoples thoughts on this? I have posted in the A3 and TT parts to hopefully get a view from both sides :-)

    Sounds like something wrong with the TT. It should be noticeably quicker, its lighter.

    are they both 2nd hand? the gearboxes may be "used" to the driving style of the two different previous drivers. alternatively (if they're new for example) the way you and your wife's driving style differ could be enough to have the same effect. for example if your wife boots it everywhere and you dawdle about then your TT will shift up quicker and stuff, whereas the A3 will hold onto gears.

    best thing to do is to reset them both by unplugging the battery for 10 minutes or so on both of them and then trying them again. i doubt there'll be much difference after that.

    regarding might be something wrong with the TT, we had a coupe before with the same engine and it felt the same, will try the reset and then think a remap might need to be on the cards, cant have the wifes car feeling more grunty than mine!

    Are they both Quattro? Surely the TT being the roadster must weigh near the same as a A3 Sportback??
