I really shouldnt like it. But i do

It is very probably an absolute monster of a car but i dont think it can be cool. The TT always seems to be driven by a certain type of person that is uncool despite their pretense. And any other Audi is driven by a complete tool, driving like a complete tool

Sorry, an extremely capable car and one that i would at least love to take for an extended blast but, deeply uncool

You mean "pretty fast", not "pretty, fast" I think, and quite correctly punctuated.

Quite powerful but it owes much of its underpinnings to the humble Golf yet starts at around £43k before options - imagine Alfa trying to pass off such a mundane handling thing at that price based on a Giuletta and how everyone, especially WhatCar....and Alfisti, would slate it?

It isn't much of a looker. It's very much male hairdresser meets estate agent with permanent tan and TW oversized watch. Uncool bordering super-naff.

Drug-dealer wheels, chavtastic halfrauds body kit, uninspiring engine note, tosspot client base with male chicken reputation, how could you make it worse?

Wouldn't disagree other than with that bit. The RS version of the TT has a 2.5litre 5 cylinder which sounds really rather good indeed.

Still not a cool car at all though and although they are always fast and sure footed with the exception of the last gen RS4 recent RS cars from Audi haven't been that much fun.

I think this needs a whole new category. It's beyond seriously uncool and into the realms of comically uncool. This category was previously the reserve of every 911 made since 1980 and fast people movers.

Uncool, too modern and in your face to be anything but.

Audi = seriously uncool. Would like to be a BMW, isn't. Period.

What started off as a cool car 10 years+ ago has now been done to death.

Its not cool but its probably a stonkingly good car to drive, especially if you're not a professional. 4wd and turbo power is easy and forgiving compared to high revving N/A engines and RWD, like their main competitor over at BMW.

It's a very well made car that does have a different platform to the golf that the previous generation shared with. However, I don't like the fairy lights on the front, the 4 circles, or the fact that you can buy a nicer looking second hand Brera for quarter of the price. I wouldn't like to race it at the lights in a Brera though. 😉

i like the 2nd gen TT more than the first gen.

i like the idea of that 5 pot in a TT in a discrete colour with some elegant wheels on it, but not that RS Plus. It's a bit vulgar, IMHO.
