Audi TTS

What do we think of this:

http://www.autoexpress.co.uk/news/au.../audi_tts.html

I quite like it and for the moment it looks like being the top spec TT in the range (unless a TT RS comes along). One thing that concerns me is how they managed to squeeze 270 bph from the 2.0 litre TFSI engine, and how refined the engine will actually be. The spec seems terrific for the price.

Love it, don't love the price..... Nearly 10K for 70bhp, 2 extra pipes and 18" alloys!! Like the new TT anyway but would probably go for a 2.0 TFSi, RS4 style 19s and a remap for much less.

Hope you're well Gordon.

I'm good at the moment, thanks Ben. Hope all is going well for you and your car is running good.

Funny you should mention about the 2.0 TFSI with the 19" wheels - ran this through the configurator earlier - 19" 7-arm-double-spoke wheels, black leather, xenon with adaptive lights, sat nav plus, rear parking sensors and an ipod connection and it comes in at just a few pennies under 31,000

Only thing about Audi is that I've heard a few not-so-positive stories about the Audi Glasgow dealership....

I order a new TT 2.0T last year but then cancelled it when I saw the deals being offered on the 335D, I really like the way it looked and drove but the rear seats and boot aren't practical at all. The spec on the TTS looks good as to add 18" wheels, Xenons, Magnetic Ride and leather are all expensive options on the standard car.

That is only 10bhp more than the Audi A3 outputs from the same engine and that is perfectly refined.
