Want a sports car? Go buy a greyhound.

2002 Audi TT 225hp quattro AWD 2dr Coupe (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
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.
The pretty girls who stare are point and wave. The GM eurobox quickly receding into the distance behind me. The tunablity.
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.
