2002 Audi TT 225 Quattro Coupe 1.8 turbo 225 from North America
Beautiful body and worlds best interior
Nothing has gone wrong with my car. It is brand new and only has 2500 miles, but so far, not a single missed step.
I believe that the 225 TT quattro coupe is nearly the perfect sports car. The exterior styling is gorgeous and unique. I don't think a more beautiful car is made today by any manufacturer, and the interior styling and materials are even better. This car is an instant classic and as such is a bargain at $35K which I paid, with every option except nav.
Performance is adequate for a sports car with excellent braking and spirited acceleration. Turbo lag is only slightly bothersome, and outward visibility is marginal, though an easy tradeoff in exchange for great looks.
The only serious shortcoming of the TT is the lack of razor sharp steering control. My first car was a non-power assisted CRX-Si which handled perfectly. My next car was a Maxima SE which handled poorly until I added Eibachs and Tokico's.
Though my car has only 2500 miles, I will probably change the springs and struts this summer. With luck, it will be transformed into the perfect driving machine for me. It is already pretty close.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
