    Uh think 1st thing is, you're comparing 2 completely different sized cars mate, so do you need space at all?

    Why a cab given its winter & you do know the english weather dont you, lol

    If space isnt an issue then maybe the TT-S in coupe form.
    If running costs arent an issue then the S5 in coupe form.

    Not keen on either as a cabrio though, or many cars for that matter.

    Assuming its similar money as a TTS-S and S5, and if brand isnt an issue what about a 335i? :undwech:

    Cheers

    Yup given a choice between an S5 and a TTs i would go for the 335i coupe every time and get a metal folding roof !! this is the UK ya know !

    If you really want a TTs then get a Boxter S but like Nige says, strange choice to choose from.

    Metal Folding ROOF !:scared2: Noooooooooooo!

    Roofs for cars.
    Ragtops for roadsters.:icon_thumright:

    Mate of mine drove an A5 3.0Tdi today, reckons its Luurverly.
    Personally I would live with the mahoosive fuel bills and go for the S5.

    To answer your original question, S5 Cab, mainly because its more manly and more practical.

    However personally, for that sort of money and guessing you like Audi Cabriolets, how about a nice used RS4 cab? Rare sight, stylish brute of a car with performance to match!

    Has to be the S5 more butch and masculine and fresh looking the TT for me still carries the connotations of time gone bye.....hair dresser......(no offence meant to hair dressers or those who are not hair dressers and drive a TT)

    No mate:)
    Most tin tops just look odd IMO.

    Its seems more effort goes into stuffing a metal roof into the car than the styling. As if its ok for the car to look out of proportion as long as the roof has a trick mechanism and folds in 0.0001 nano seconds.
    Sorry, not for me.

    Must admit `Hugys`Sprint TTS with the dark RS4s looks the ********.

    cheers

    I follow a rule when it comes to cabriolets and its never buy one that wasn't designed to be one in the first place, added to which I can't say Audi (in my opinion) have ever made a good looking cabriolet, so my choice is neither, it would be something like a.....Boxster S...:undwech:

    or;

    I would support the choice of either as a coupe, the S5 looks nicer, but I suspect (and this is more an assumption) that the TTS would be more of an engaging drive.

    :iagree: other than the engaging drive bit. I think the S5 would be better to drive, with the rear biased 4WD.

    S5 coupe for me.

    Boxster would be my choice for a small roadster.

    While always being a bit of a TT coupe fan MK1 and 2, Ive never liked the soft top versions. The Mk1 Cab was awful with the roof up, like a pram. Looked OK on the rare occasion you can actually get the roof down
    though.

    Out of the `big` cabs I reckon the old AUDI 80 based Cab and A4 cabs have better looking than the equivalent SAABs, BMWs, MERCs, VOLVOS of the day.

    Either one would be a step down (or, at best, a step sideways). TT-S is an S3 dressed up as Dame Edna Everage and the S5 is lardy. Bad choices THRIZZLE - especially for a tasteful Northerner. For the same money there are much better options available.

    Yeah, but they don't have Audi badges, and that appears to be a requirement.

    Surprised how well the dark details and optics go with Sprint.
    Somehow I dont think that colour scheme works as well on an S3.:think:

    Forget the S5 cab...they STILL suffer from body flex & scuttle shake, and have the rather dull 3.0 supercharged V6 which lacks ALL of the character of the superb 4.2 v8..
    go for an s5 COUPE instead , better handling/riding car and with the v8.

    I would go for the s5 coupe also, just a real nice motor IMHO!

    But if you do get the TT, how much would you charge me for wash trim and blow dry? lol


    Dont worry got my coat and leaving!

    I second that.

    Think you should go for S5 by the way mate.

    If its got to be a cab then S5 in Sprint blue. Saw one on Tuesday night parked near me in the Audi car park at Old Trafford. Looked really really well.

    The TT-S is nice as a Coupe but I dont like the roadster when the roof is up which if we are being honest will be most of the time in this country.

    In my opinion,the A5/S5 is underwheeled.especially at the rear,it needs 9.5x19/20 to fill those big arches.
    I also think the rear quater section of the car looks odd compared to the rest of the body styling wise.
