2002 Audi TT Coupe 225hp quattro AWD 2dr Coupe (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

Car is one of a kind without a doubt, great engine (had water pump replaced with metal impellar version for reliability, ecu raflashed, new dv, and p-flo intake. It is now where it needs to be for being a sports car with more turbo kick and less restriction on the engine. Great to drive anywhere anytime, handles unbelievably well on all roads. Only minor problems have occurred but nothing that cant be fixed by joining a forum online and a little bit of mechanical common sense. I highly recommend purchasing used, with the 225 engine with a 6 speed, its all fun when you want it and feels great driving through town watching everyone's jaw drop at the styling and sound.


Best Features

styling, handles great, feel safe no matter the speed or situation, power is there whenever you want it period, being able to shoot through traffic with the greatest of ease, has a surprising amount of trunk space for that size of car, and is great to pick your lady up in.


Worst Features

not recommended for anyone over 6 feet tall, stay out of the back unless you are a small kid, up the performance end of the car you wont regret it.

2002 Audi TT Coupe 225hp quattro AWD 2dr Coupe (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

TT coupe is without a doubt the best car I have owned. Beware, this is not a sports car. The engine lacks power and needs a re-map for true performance, and the handling in corners while better than most typical US cars and SUVs is terrible in standard trim with excessive understeer and roll. Having said that it is fast enough to eat most other traffic for breakfast and great fun on rural roads - especially if there are no proper corners. Fuel economy is pretty special considering the performance and the design is iconic and fast becoming a classic. If you can live with the unreliability and couldn't care less customer service from Audi, you should buy one.


Best Features

The pretty girls who stare are point and wave. The GM eurobox quickly receding into the distance behind me. The tunablity.


Worst Features

Instrument clusters that last more than 3 years. Then ECU remap, replace OEM diverter valve and turbo hoses, stiffer roll bars, symmetrical tail lights, interior sound-deadening, 3" exhaust downpipe & catback system. Some customer service from Audi would also be great.

2002 Audi TT Coupe 180hp Fwd 2dr Coupe (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


Review

The exterior lines of the 1st generation Audi TT are destined to be classic. With a factory spoiler it evokes thoughts more of a classic Porsche than a Golf or Beetle. Not only did the car redefine Audi, making cars like the R8 possible, but it also redefined a segment of which the 350z took many notes. As far as things falling apart, we will see. From experience, when a typical American is faced with a knob, switch or lever we are not familiar with, what do we do...we wrench, wiggle, push and pull on it until we brake it. God forbid we get out the manual! Handling is fantastic. Braking is better than anything I have ever driven. 370z included. Backseats, perfect, for my 2yr old.


Best Features

The interior is superb. If the classic lines of the exterior are not this car's strongest point, then the interior is. Whereas aftermarket guru's and copy-cat manufactures are rushing to add every piece of fake plastic stainless and chrome they can find, the Audi TT did it first and did it right.


Worst Features

Performance, well if the chick car thing came from anywhere, perhaps it is in performance. It’s by no means a dog, but I believe a chip and performance exhaust is in my TT’s future. Realistically, it is short about 15-20hp; I think I will add an extra 40 to keep things interesting.

2002 Audi TT Coupe 225hp quattro AWD 2dr Coupe (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

I bought my dream car used 2 years ago. Since then it has had one problem after another. The timing belt breaks prematurely with these cars and Audi USA knows this and does nothing about it. Instrument cluster fails, fuel cell broken 3x, automatic window motor goes out. If you get a flat tire you have to buy a whole set of new tires because they have to have the same tread wear as it is AWD. And even the most minor thing to fix is very expensive I had a blast driving it when it wasnt broken, but it seems to be breaking more and more and the car is only 6 yrs old. Don't buy this car no matter how "pretty" it is.


Best Features

When the car actually worked, and wasnt in the shop, it was awesome to drive. Handling, speed, the turbo, all awesome.


Worst Features

Have someone redo the entire electrical system. Get a after market timing belt. And if you do buy this car, get an extended warranty because this car will break on you.

2002 Audi TT Coupe 225hp quattro AWD 2dr Coupe (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

Car still had full warranty for 10 months. Just know what you're buying. You cannot go wrong with an Audi. Parts are expensive, but check salvage yards The car shifts smooth, corners great. Invest in good tyres always, do not have to be the most pricey ones. It rides a little stiff but it is supposed to.


Best Features

All the aftermarket goodies you can get. 6 speed quickness. Brights are very bright. Exterior design.
