Had a TTS for the day yesterday, unfortunately it came with DSG or whatever its called these days and although very,very fast in a straight line it all went to pieces in the twistys for me, I really couldn't get on with the paddles or manual shiftas using +/- on the gear selector the car was still changing gear for me and the position of the paddles was really annoying. Whilst at the dealers he informed me my Manual TTS has gone into build so will be arriving late July/early August - a little ahead of schedule which set me to thinking as not totally blown away with the S3 lump feeling a little more laggy than I remember. I decided to take a look at what else I could get for close to £36K pre-discount. Anyway to the point - I test drove a BMW 335i Coupe M Sport today, twin turbo, 306bhp. Crikey!!! Never been a big BM fan but the soundtrack and performance were amazing with a playful rear end in todays wet weather. I only had the car for half an hour so have booked a solo half day to fully ascess it, the dealer agreed to 5% off without any negotiation so this is promising as a starting point on a £36K car, what are your thoughts Guys or have any of you considered a similar swap ? Surprisingly its in the same group tax wise as the S3/TTS and offers similar MPG with a like for like spec. I know I haven't grinned so much in ages and the poor salesman was a nice shade of white when we returned.
