I considered a Roadster back when they first came out (really liked the
Coupe, but wanted the removable lid). Stealers were gouging in a very big
way -- about 5 grand over sticker, so I defected to the WMB camp and picked
up an M Roadster. The M handles better than the TT (though not as well as a
Boxster) and has a fantastic motor, tranny and brakes. Other than that, the
TT pretty much has it all over the WMB -- fit and finish, looks, materials,
Was in Florida last month on business with the wife and we decided to spend
a day at the Audi Driving Experience/Panoz School at Sebring. School cars
were all TT Coupes -- 1.8T and 3.2's (for autocrossing). The 3.2's were the
Special Edition two-tone numbers. They had one that was red with a black
roof, that looked veeerrryyy nice.
Instructor said the TT's understeered in a big way, when they first got
them, but some radical tire pressure balancing took care of the problem. I
was very impressed with the cars and could see having one of the Spec Ed
cars w/ DSG. But, not really in the market and M Roadster with LOUD B&B
Triflo exhaust still lots of fun. Besides -- I like having an S car and an M
car side by side in the garage. Can YOU say S&M?
Now the neu TT just may get me to go shopping a couple or three years from
now. Appears that Audi is putting a lot more "sports" into this version. A
TT-S (or TT-RS?) version ought to do the trick.
S&M, but no TT's
