    just downloaded Top Gear review of TT V6, and also got the R32. They seems to praise the R32 being really really good, but they hated the TT said it was **** and it drove like a clowns car (haha). But the overall track time of the TT was slightly faster than the R32!... so wut does that really mean????

    I think it must be something to do with either the weight distribution or some subtle differences. If you look at some of the S3 225bhp reviews, they say that it was better than the 225bhp TT.

    Most car reviewers follow fashion and not a lot more. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

    p.s. The A3 forum for a discussion on TTs and R32s? /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    Actually, in the case of the Nova, it was made in Spain.
