    Stylish To A Fault, But Make Sure You Get A Reliable One...can Be Expensive. —

    I bought the car used, with around 50K miles. I'd researched the maintenance history, check CARFAX, and had a local German car specialist do a pre-purchase inspection. The car was beautiful to look at, had a wonderful interior...styled like a piece of art that actually functioned well. What looked like metal, really was. Great leather...just a cool place to be. I liked having a four cylinder for the gas mileage, but the turbo gave enough power when needed. Likewise, I liked having the quattro for poor weather commuting as well. All that said, every time I turned around I had another sound, idiot light, fluid leak, or burp that sent me back to the repair shop. And nothing proved cheap. Wheel bearings, window regulators, instrument panel switches, just a series of stuff that should have been nickel and dime but were several hundred bucks a shot....and that's with me shopping parts off the internet...my mechanic (now much richer), an Audi specialist, said they're good cars but can be fragile, they just don't take to hard use. I suspect one of the previous three owners had thrashed the reliability right out of it. The charm wore off after 6 months and I sold the car. Just one of those relationships that looked better from a distance. If you can find a one-owner, perfectly tended TT...go for it, otherwise, prepare to open that wallet for repairs.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Stylish, economical given performance, comfortable, great features, secure handling. Affordable used car buy (initially, anyway).  Those back seats have real utility, extra storage, and once you get back there, pretty comfortable for normal-sized people. Good room under the hatchback too.

    Cons: Had a long and and expensive list of repairs. Not reliable enough to serve as my go-to-work car.

    Nice Car To Cruise The Coastline. — Beautiful, nice interior with the extensive use of alluminium. Seats and the suspension are really hard, the backrest is not really adjustable. A number of issues with the electronics: driving lights, cd- changer, folding roof. The 6-speed automatic is really slow and rubbish.

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: Beatiful.

    Cons: Noisy.

    Very Nice Roadster, But Limited Suitability For All-day-use — Check the review of the coupe. Additionally the roadster has actually no trunk which is more or less normal in this class, but still there are positive exceptions to find. Beside that it is a great car for weekendtrips and to show off with, but still with an image of understatement. Windsituation inside is absolutely OK and with wind deflector nothing to complain about. Rooftop worked well and quick.

    Pros: Valueable, Quality, Interiour,

    Cons: Consumption, Motorsound, Trunksize
