    Audi Tt — The performance of this car is really fun. It's just annoying when niggling little electrical glitches show up. The car is totally beautiful, I'm just looking for a cheap place to get it fixed. It gets about 23 mpg, but there is usually a big grin on my face when I drive it.

    Pros: Fun to drive, too fast

    Cons: Niggling little electrical problems, build quality

    Audi Tt Roadster — best two seater roadster in it's class but must be the 225bhp quattro version then chipped with 5 stage apr chip which makes a hell of a lot faster through the gears

    Pros: all of them

    Cons: none

    Beutiful Piece Of Crap. — Audi's are beautiful pieces of crap. The clutch was messed up on the second gear, and now the air compressor is messing up as well. All I can say is THANK GOD for factory warranty.

    Pros: The style, the power, and the interior are beautiful.

    Cons: Drive train, Air compressor, and sometimes clutch/gear grinding.

    You Either Hate It Or Love It — This is not a typical convertible. When it first came out it was a big bet for Audi because of the "industrial" rounded design but the car soon became a huge success. 2001 was the first year that the 225-horsepower version of the standard turbocharged 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine (180hp) was used for the roadster. The 225hp engine was mated with a 6speed transmission with short throws. This engine is beautiful with quick acceleration (low 6s) and minimum turbo lag compared to the standard 180hp engine. Handling is amazing. This car drives on rails and the steering is very responsive at high speeds. In my opinion All wheel Quattro drive should be the strongest reason for someone to buy an Audi. It is the epitome of German engineering and it's offered as a very cheap option in all Audi models. With the top down this car attracts all the attention. The baseball leather option helps to give the interior a very upscale look. Back in my clubbing days I don't think there was a single Saturday night that I wouldn't get at least three to five numbers thrown to me as I was driving down the club district. My only problem was that with the top down, I never ended up catching many of these numbers anyway. The glass wind screen is a very smart idea. It's deployed with the touch of a button so you don't have to get out of the car to install it, or carry it in the trunk like in many other convertibles. I think the major disadvantage of this car is the has a very tight interior space. With the top up I had one girlfriend that suffered panic attacks every time she would get in my car because she was claustophobic. I also had a hard time parking the car because visibility is really bad form the back small glass window. Boot space is non existent so if you plan on weekend getaways send your suitcases with a cab in advance to your planned destination as you can hardly fit a briefcase in the trunk..

    Pros: Looks, engine, handling, brakes, transmission

    Cons: tight cabin space, quality of the top, bad visibility, no boot space

    Unique, Power When You Need It, And Just A Fun Car To Drive. — One word sums up the whole car - unique. The interior styling makes it feel far more expensive than it really is. Controls are within easy reach. The leather trim is nice, but the door handles are made out of a material that you can easily scratch. Aluminum trim a nice touch. AWD on the quattro is great when it rains, snows etc. Or just tearing up a country backroad. Although i would rather it be a manual top, the latch to release the top is right in the middle, unlike my dad's car where there are two on either side of the top which is a little hard to get to if you're my height. The turbo takes some getting used to since it spools up at around 2K, if you arent careful the 225hp it puts out will jerk you around a good bit. The transmission shifts smoothly and isnt as moody as my dad's Z3. Right now the car is averaging at 27.8MPG combined.

    Pros: AWD Handling
    Spark plugs insanely easy to get to and replace
    Convertable top doesnt take up any trunk space
    Great gas mileage
    Its a german roadster

    Cons: Paint wear and chips
    Windshield chips - very small
    Damn fasteners under the engine are so frustrating
    Most all mods have to be imported from England

    Simply Enjoyable — It feels great to take out this ride on a hot summer day and drive it on the highway. For what its got under the hood, it goes pretty well. Very aggressive and fun to drive.

    Pros: Looks, Gas Milage

    Cons: Maintenance

    Love The Way It Looks And Drives. — Owned this car for 6 1/2 years and have never had a problem with it. Just change the oil and it's regular maint. and that's all. No water leaks with the top .

    Owner for 6 years, 10 months

    Pros: Like everything about the car !

    Cons: I feel that the resale value is way too low.

    Less Than I Had Hoped For. — For as much as cars like this cost, I was really expecting a lot more. It felt small and quick in traffic, but when I actually had the chance to get on it a little- it felt slower than a two-seater sports car should. I kept thinking that a VW Golf GTI could easily keep up with this thing. Maybe my expectations were too high. It's a cool little German sports car, but it doesn't really shine.

    Pros: Built to last, straight forward controls, sporty

    Cons: should have been MORE sporty, two seats only

    Yes, Please! — I have only owned this car for close to 3 weeks now. It has AWD with 225hp and turbo. The interior is leather with chrome trim and heated seats. I like that you can adjust the temperature of the seats. It came with a Bose system which is nice and it handles corners like a champ.

    Pros: Turbo!

    Cons: I haven't found one yet.

    Timeless — My first manual transmission: six speeds of heaven. Plenty torque down low, lovely sound up high. I've never been complimented so much at rest areas and gas stations. Love her to death :)

    Pros: Styling, slick shifter, turbo pulls strong

    Cons: Fragile, money-pit of maintenance, zero trunk space
