    I was in an audi showroom today waiting for car service, I got to chatting to a salesmen about the TT ,trying to find a reason not to buy one for the mrs.

    He reckons that a diesel TT will be announced soon (a promise audi made if they won le mans with a diesel apperently). A diesel would suit us but just doesnt seem right in a TT. Any thoughts? ps. he did say it may be a 3 litre diesel. seems a bit heavy for a small car.

    Over here in the U.S., diesel has become a bit pricey! It used to be cheaper than regular gasoline but not anymore. However, diesel engines have a reputation of being very dependable with long life. I would say it depends on how long you'd keep the vehicle.

    By the way, I see you are in York. My company, TSYS, has an office there. I hope at some point to be able to visit there!

    Yes why not I suspect when audi bring out their next generation of diesel engines there will be one or more for the TT.

    What a coincidence! Maybe if I get a chance for a business trip, I can time it with your next service and we can "do lunch"!

    I'd chop in the A3 for a Diesel TT. I do 100 miles a day, and get an average of 44mpg from the 170 tdi. What I would like is a 3.0 TDi TT please Audi.

    Nae chance of the 3.0 TDi finding it's way into a TT.

    Whilst It may well be desireable, it is too damn heavy.

    The word on the ground is that it'll be a 2 litre next generation diesel generating 204bhp.
