I had this dilemma with the TTS. I was going with glacier or ibis white, defo not sepang as I don't like it on the new shape TTS at all. But I keep buying white cars and maybe it is time for a change? I love the yellow, but only on other people's cars, not mine. If that makes sense?! Dayton Grey? Maybe, but nano grey looks better to my eyes. Tango red? My S3 is red, so I want something different on my TTS... then I saw a TTS in silver parked up and I was quite taken with it. So, after much thought, I ordered my new TTS in florent silver. It's arriving in a couple of weeks time.

The problem with the TTS is the front Grill,it does'nt suit certain colours,the S-line front grill does with the black optics,they should release a BSP for the TTS
Best combo l have seen so far that is, is either Mythos with 20"s or Glacier with 20"s

Spec the fancy seats for sure! **** knows why they didn't turn up in the RS3 :tonguewink:

TX.

Edit - Audi tried to turn me over on the p/x of my S5 vs the RS3, I just sold it privately in the end.

Gone the other way, had a silver Mk2, now got Tango Red;

BH, I'm in similar boat to you but my s3 would still be a big hit at the minute on a PX.

Had mine just over a year and a half so might keep it for another year. I really want the TTRS but not sure I can stretch that far!

Would you not want to hold off for the TTRS?

@j0nny2013 - If I had the pennies for a new mk3 TTRS, yes, but unfortunately I haven't hence a new mk3 TTS

@Bristle Hound

mate ... if the part ex on your S4 now stacks up, then 15% off is a great deal !
are they still runing the audi contributions too ?
TTS is a stunning car :yes:
agree on the alloys too - as much as I really like the look of the 20's, the cleaning of them would drive me mad, especially the inside barrels.

yeah I'm pretty much the same. My heart says TTRS but brain knows thats probably not going to happen.

I'm tempted by TTS, you should defo go for it with that discount. :yes:

Have to say I'd go RS3 every time. I like the TT but...............the RS3 just screams drive me, the TT screams, well, poodle along in me. :racer:

Quite a big difference in cost though?

also I'm sick of rotor alloys, every model has them and don't find them special anymore.

RS3 is a great sounding car no doubt, I would choose the RS3 saloon over hatchback. My opinion of course

Both cars have their strengths and both are superb cars for different reasons.

The build quality of the TT's is fantastic IMO and they look super cool inside & out and balance price v performance extremely well.

The RS3 is an ultra practical smoking hot quality hatch with insane speed and a glorious soundtrack :)

I would be happy with either car being totally honest, but the sound really is a HUGE part of the RS3.

@Snake Pliskin - Do rather like the colour of those 2 ^ ;) :D

@Scottyg - I've been needing to 'scratch the mk3 TTS itch' ever since I first saw one
Poodle along sounds good to me :laugh::laugh::laugh:
After I've finished with a TTS, if I have enough pennies and they start discounting the RS3 maybe I could 'scratch the 8V RS3 itch' after the TTS

Practicality isn't an issue for me on my car anyway. The wife's car is another matter ...

@Snake Pliskin - This ain't helping! lol

PS Still wouldn't have the 20's lol

PPS Looks like the US model reviewd is down around 18bhp, strangely



That is a very fair & accurate review mate.

I've driven a TTS on 20's and the ride is VERY firm .... so yeah it's corner like its on rails lol :)

19's are tolerable though 100% and you don't want a wallowy ride do ya :)

Looks awesome in sepang too.

It's calling you !!!!

Sepang Blue for me, and I would go for the 20" rims....just love the look of them! I don't think Vegas suits the TT shape for some reason.

With the new TTRS on the horizon, I just couldn't look past this. I know the money side of it is an issue, but it will look amazing. Just think about the mk2 TTS against the TTRS.

I am big fan of Sepang Blue but the TTS doesn't suit the colour at all,floret silver, Daytona Grey, glacier white..... Are the best non exclusive paints to go with

I actually agree with your comments, but I think the best colour for the TT is Mythos Black....looks real classy. But out of the colours mentioned, then Sepang gets the nod.
