2012 Audi TT RS quattro 2dr Coupe AWD (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 6M)
I walked into an Audi dealership to test drive the S5 and the dealership was the only one in San Diego to have a TT RS in stock.
I test drove it and was absolutely blown away!
The clutch and transmission are PERFECT.
The clutch is perfectly weighted, releases at the top of the movement, and the 6-speed transmission was snickety with the perfect size shift lever.
The engine was insanely quick and the car felt lighter than the M3 and C63 because it is.
The interior was much nicer than the BMW M3 and Mercedes C63 AMG.
But once I experienced the performance the interior was an afterthought.
I ordered the TT RS the same day after test driving other cars for 2 years.
It is that good!
Dashboard could be slightly higher quality material but it's still better than the competitors.
Update...I have had this car for 4 months and I still love it each time I drive it.
I'm amazed how quick it is.
I had a horrible experience with Audi San Diego though, so pick a dealership with a good reputation!
