I purchased this car as a 25th wedding
anniversary present for my wife. She
typically doesn't get excited about
cars, but really went crazy over the
I've had various convertibles for over
17 years. I drove a Z4 and and a
Boxster (tiptronic) for comparison.
TT won out on styling, interior
quality and what I would label as 80%
driving - that stuff we all do during
our daily trips around town. Z4 was a
close competitor, but I just couldn't
get used to the looks. Boxster (with
tiptronic) was a dog to drive around
town, and it's interior was pretty
spartan (read cheap looking) compared
to the other two.
Top - works great.
Wind protection with glass behind the
Stop light performance - pretty quick
for 180 hp and an automatic.
Build quality, interior.
Top - would be nice if it looked a
little more finished when down - like
the Z4 (which has a really world class
top in all respects) and Boxster. Also
would like to see a lined top.
Arm rests - for a lengthy drive it
would be nice to have a center arm
Power plant is acceptable for this kind
of vehicle. Performance is great...
acceleration is superb, although scary.
DMV threat me with revoking my license
is I get another fine. It cruises at 80
mph with no effort. Style and design
provokes in others curiosity and
admiration. It's a simple fun to drive
and owned german roadster. I will not
have it any other way!
Power plant and its capabilities,
handking is awsome, interior space,
trunk size is convenient. Design...
ahead of its time.
This car is very thoughtfully
designed. I was comparing it with the
Boxster, which I thought had an edge on
the exterior styling but the TT's
interior styling is nicer. Plus, I get
a lot more car for less money -- rear
glass window, retractable rear wind
deflector. And I love the silver cover
on the audio system. It's such a nice
touch. The construction is very
solid. You can tell when you close the
doors and trunk. It's very solid.
The interior styling is awesome! The
silver spokes is the theme throughout
the car, including the gas lid. I like
the minimal noise that it makes when
the tops is on while you drive on the
I'd like them change the styling of the
front. Hence, I give the edge to the
Boxster on this one. However, the
coupe's exterior design is even nicer!
2003 Audi TT Convertible 225hp quattro AWD 2dr Roadster (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
excellent car, drives great, looks
good...must stay off intersate
roads...to many pot holes...
makes me feel good driving this car.
The style is so different and looks
like no other car on the road. The
interior fit and finish is very
pleasing and comfortable.
I don't need the cup holder and would
have enjoyed an arm rest better. The
controls for the air conditioner are a
bit confusing and could use a simpler
design. Increase in power to perhaps
250-260 hp as well as torque.
