    Try again,

    Can anyone help me?

    What is the basis for the mechanicals of the TT? Is it a golf or an A4?

    What is the difference between the transverse engines and the in-line, apart from the obvious.

    Is the V6 engine a common base with diff. capacities?

    the current TT/A3 is more Golf, the new A3 however seems to be more A4.

    Typically Transverse engines are fitted where smaller engine bays are created to not compromise the external design.
    However I believe more physical ballast weights are used to balance things where in inline it a more balanced by nature of the engine and gearbox being longitudinal and weight distribution can be set by tilting the engine to an even angle.

    I think the V6 is completely different to the 1.8 bases dont compare them.

    p.s. I am only guessing but I believe it is correct.

    the TT V6 is more R32, the new A3 is a completely different kettle of fish, the wheels may be 5x112 like te A4, but the ET5? wheels have no comparison within the Audi range
