    Came across a 2.0T TT Roadster at a Main Dealer for a mere £14k - with just 16,000 miles on it. Lovely spec - Leather, Electric heated seats, Cruise, Parking etc and have decided to buy it....

    Means my lovely A3 2.0T quattro is going but at 67,000 feel its time for a change. Getting some jip for it being a girlie car but with 19" RS wheels on it in Deep Sea Blue I'm hoping to get away with it!!!

    Strange - thought I was going to buy an S2000..... :ermm:

    I see the TT as a stepping stone to a nice TTS....

    I must admit i do like the new shape TT as it's more manly however i can't help but think you have chosen the most girly variant of it being a soft top, the TTS and TTRS and the S line edition hard top TT look the business.

    I'd be interested to see what your planned mods look like once you have got the motor.

    Enjoy the motor! :thumbsup:

    Soft top TT is defiantly the girlie option!

    No man should be seen driving it, unless its to park while she watches :p

    Very reassuring comments there guys!! I knew I'd made the right choice :shrug:

    The mileage and deal was just too appealing - 15 to 20k a year now so a low miler really helps my pocket.

    First things first:

    Supagard
    Revo Stage 1
    Forge DV Valve
    BDM Induction
    19 RS Wheels
    ...then maybe a Miltek

    Other choices were:

    3 Series - I'm just NOT a Bmw driver
    TTS - Wish I could but just can't justify 20k :-(
    A4 was a serious contender but I wanted 2 seats
    Elise / S2000 - Both too low to be practical day to day.
    Eos - Err, nope.
    Astra / Focus - LOL
    Z4 - Even worse!!
    350Z - Just don't like them

    I love my S3, but I actually prefer the TT. Only very slightly, but I prefer it none the less!

    I just love the interior of it and how it's all snug around you! I drove the TT-S and the TT-RS, and fell in love with the instantly. The ONLY reason I bought the S3 was because I use the rear seats quite regularly and the seats in the back of the TT.... well I don't need to say much more do I. lol

    Enjoy her mate!

    +1!!

    Good man, that's the spirit!

    TT is immense. If I didn't have to ferry folk about there would be a TT-S on my drive now, not an S3!
