    Tts alloys

    My thinking is normally "the bigger the better" with wheels, but I really like the standard 19s (they're the same as the 18s on my S1), and so I figure that £850 could be put to better use elsewhere. Normally, if the bigger ones are much nicer then I'll pay any amount (as I think the wheels make...

    TT RS 2016

    Just the slightly higher base price and bhp last time round. Don't mean to say it's objectively 'better'.

    TT RS 2016

    I believe they both started with 335bhp, but then the TT got approx 15 more...

    TT RS 2016

    Yes, but those are different cars. The Audi TT-RS is positioned with, but slightly above, the RS3. They share the same engine, just as they did with the last generation. The present 5 pot is the improvement in terms of emissions for both the RS3 and TT-RS. I would absolutely guarantee it!

    TT RS 2016

    I'd say it's a dead cert to have the same engine as the RS3 (i.e. 5-cylinder 2.5l), but with slight mods to the ECU / turbo to take it up 10-15bhp. Would be seriously surprised if it was a 2.0, as that'd be completely out of line with their historical approach.

    The New TT-S

    Well that's a great result for Audi, if the newer model that's a 'step down' is better than the old top of the range, it looks like their chassis / dynamics overhaul has really been effective. Onward and upwards!

    New joiner

    That's cool - did they clean it up for you?!

    The New TT-S

    That's great, do I take it you've gone for the Quattro version? And what do you mean when you say 'over on the TT Forum'? I thought this was the TT forum?

    The New TT-S

    I guess the thing is, for 99% of when I'd actually use it, the TT would be the same or better (but then I could say the same about a Fiesta vs the S1 I currently have), but there is an allure with the Porsche. I have actually never driven a TT, so will have to check it out. BMW actually seem...

    The New TT-S

    I think I will have to try them - I think my next car will be either a TT-S / TT-RS or a Cayman S... assuming an RS3 Saloon doesn't come along and look too beautiful... Thing is the Cayman is widely acknowledged as being better to drive, but it's so sparsely kitted that if you put the stuff a...

    Limited Edition TT 'Stealth Line'

    Fair enough, well it looks like a job well done, as you say. When I was looking at a Golf R, City VW in London had added all the VW extra kit (darkened headlamps, big spoiler, splitter etc.) to a Golf to show that off, but they had actually done it to a bottom of the range diesel... which would...

    Limited Edition TT 'Stealth Line'

    That is beautiful. I wonder what the rationale is behind a dealer doing this? If it was a highly specced TT-S with red seats I would be quite tempted!

    The New TT-S

    Wow, it's quiet in this part of the forum!!

    The New TT-S

    There doesn't seem to be a heap of stuff on here about the new TT-S. Have orders started arriving yet, and has anyone driven one? I bought an S1 Sportback as I didn't want to wait, but I reckon in a year or two's time I would be tempted to upgrade to a new TT-S or TT-RS if my dealer offers me...
