    Need some advice please people. In December I'll have 17.5k to buy a car for my 21st trouble is I cant decide between an S3 and TT. running costs don't really matter as I live really near work and have 4 years ncb for the insurance. would be greatfull of peoples opinions especially if they've lived with both cars.

    cheers.

    TT's are for hairdressers!

    If you are a hairdresser, then get a TT. If not, S3 all the way baby!

    Tough decision!

    Go test drive them both and see what you think? Do you want to carry passengers?

    not too bothered bout passengers just the girlfriend more often than anyone and of course she prefers the TT almost reason enough to go for the s3.

    Judging by your username you must be more inclined to go for the S3, or you would have registered as "alxtt"

    I'd go for the S3 (obviously) - same performance, far less common and, in my opinion, much better looking.

    One thing to say in favour of the TT is the cabin is really really nice! I sat in one once and didn't want to get out! I think they are very special and was in the same position as you about 1yr ago!

    Its a nice position to be in mind you!

    I Know that TT's are everywhere but they are still really nice IMHO! If you want to stealthy then get a S3. If you want to pose go for the TT.

    Either way - both cars are very good and you won't be disappointed with either!

    Cheers

    I think you need to drive the two, back to back, on the same roads.

    Anyone who is still alive will then walk away thinkng the S3 is the better drivers car. If you don't, buy a TT...you deserve it! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif
