Best car I've ever owned
Owned my 2004 Audi TT for 7 years. Kept it regularly serviced (oncer per year due to low k's) and it was reliable and fun every single day. Had one electrical thermostat problem but the local RACV repairer fixed it for a few hundred bucks. Great car all the way. Fast and fun. Only good for primary school kids in the back seat though.
Purchased in April 2011 for A$22,000.00.
So stylish and fun to drive
So nice to drive, turbo and insanely fast for a 1.8 litre. On the downside, not built well, just look up online they pretty much ALL have problems. Engine is 100% but electronics, lights, trim, power steering, sensors even the fuel gauge... all broken and tempremental. Not a good daily driver.
Sports car at a sedan price
I purchased my TT 15 months ago with only a genuine 54,000k and I love driving it. It handles really well in corners, very quiet on the open road and fuel efficient. Keep in mind you will require 98 RON for best performance. The Turbo kicks in around 2,500. There is minimal turbo lag, in fact I would go as far as saying, that when I'm in 4th gear, 5 gear box on this model, it slips from 60k to 80k quicker than you can say, "jack the ripper". The seats are cosy and hold you into position. All the buttons and switches are well positioned. Loads o...f leg room in front - don't even think about sitting in the back unless you are 3ft tall with short legs. The back seat is handy for the old up brolly and Audit TT Jacket and Baseball Cap. The servicing is on par with the average family medium car sedan. It is very important to do the correct servicing, keeping in mind this is a performance car. Additional power can be bought for around $1,500 as a PC download, but leave it to the pros!! Problems to date: Had to replace drivers door locking latch which is part of a electronics set up, cost approximately $500. The rear trailing arm had to be replaced as it was not square, perhaps the previous owner hit the kerb. My car is immaculate and gets heads turning all the time. A wash and polish keeps it looking great. Cheap to run, sports car pleasure, power when required
Loads of fun, economical and great looking. As long as you service it properly the mechanicals are A1. Electrics are the only bugbear.
Fun to drive, economical but more then sporty enough when you put the foot down. Servicing not as expensive as many other euro makes. Practical with hatch and folding rear seats. Handles well and has safety features ahead of its time. Still looks gorgeous and turns heads. Always leaves a smile on your face.
Early build quality not as good as I would have liked. 2 adults only, despite the appearance of rear seats. Electrical problems in later life. Sound system is top notch but costs a packet when it fails.
