I think the height of entertainment is when 335diesel is in full wound up mode, better than most topical car threads.

yeah, agree.....above 60mph, my 335i would outrun the TTS...straight line speed definitely the 335i feels more planted and stable....

BIT OFF TOPIC...but the TTS does handle well....i found out that i overinflated the tyres!!!..Rears should be 26 psi as per door sticker!!!!!!! I had them on 38psi!!!!!.....I have now reduced them to 30psi and the ride is much better and handling aswell!!!....don't understand how come the pressure needs to be so low for 245/40/18 tyres!!!

Maybe so but one looks amazing and the other looks like a TT. No offence meant as they are both great cars.

I agree that the looks of the R8 are but the rest of it didnt light my fire.. Yes the TT looks like a TT and to be honest i like the fact that it does just look like a TT. The R8 on the other hand just draws attention from everyone that you drive past.

The sound of the V8 is awesome, but on the road the car didnt feel as quick as the TT, factor in the fact that we couldnt get the car onto the drive at present, or into the garage it makes the TTRS the more practical and affordable option.


If i had the money id go for the V10 Spyder and would live at work and not bother going home lol

Dont think the mk2 TT is as girly as the mk1 TT.

I'd take one but would need to be at least TTS pref TTRS, but to impractical.
