  1. Yeah the MK3 interior is lovely place to be. (just watch out for the seat issue, the plastic comes away from the headrest and all the way down the side due to poor strength clips and Audi don't cover it in the warranty despite it being a world wide known issue. If you buy Audi used and its there I've spoken to Audi UK they should be doing it as a gesture apparently...so they must know!) (£1K to put right I think). A guy at my work bought a Mk2 TTS when I bought my 350Z and he still has his. He's replaced the magnetic suspension bits but besides that engine etc has been fine. I remember having a ...spirited drive with him in the rain going home and he just sat right up my backside lol Very nice cars btw, nice M3 looks tidy!
  2. I agree with you Dan in terms of the specialness (is that a word? lol) of a car, the TT or a TTS doesn't match the theatre of the Z, I would tell people simply getting in it to go to work was an occasion. Full of cheap plastics but the cascading dash and low down position made you feel like you were in something special (and then my Scorpion/Cobra set up kicked in!). I'm trying to find a sporty coupe that gives me the same sort of feeling even if I do need to think what else make its. The TTS doesn't sound that good and I really don't like the farting gear changes but I could live with it. The special comes from the low down, hemmed in feeling, it really is so different to a S3, Golf R etc so you will feel (pardon the expression as I know most will use the RS for it) like your in a mini supercar. Were all big kids at the end of the day you buy with your heart, I used to see the Z with its longish bonnet, rear wheel drive and big engine (for most peoples budgets anyway) as a really poor persons 599 lol The TTS is remarkably small compared to most stuff these days too, so fits easily in most spaces/garages. Already been on the titty forums for a while doing what I did on here long ago, finding everything I can about them.. Main concern is the seat trims that seem to fall apart....hmm. I did look at Mk2 RS but then when the MK3 TTS looks better and goes just as fast I'd rather have the new one. On a note to your other comment, I have never..driven an MX5, which I think I need to rectify at some point lol. I've sat in some and thought... this is tiny lol.
  3. I kinda liked the look of the RC coupes but they are woefully slow and underpowered and I can't afford and RCF...and tbh wouldn't buy one anyway as there not very good from what I hear lol. The original plan was to buy a 4.2 V8 XKR (2008 year or there abouts) and was geared up to do so, but ended up moving, got a garage and I def want to use it. Despite my love for GT coupes, practicality, better running costs and ultimately better performance have made me look at a TTS from around 2016-2017. I could buy an S3 or along those lines but I am not into hot hatches, there just not special enough inside. I don't mind looking like I'm on my way to my next hair appointment if the thing feels and looks special inside...which it does (and goes like hell). I've driven both a normal 2.0 TT quattro and the 306hp TTS, as bad as it is to say it they are very good. They don't have the character of the 350Z and I miss that and the sound so bad, but having tested a normal 227hp TT Quattro, I'm pretty sure it'd stay...if not beat a 350Z no problem...at least until very high speeds. TTS is silly fast, but also remarkably easy in doing so and when I spend most of my time going to work its the better option. This will be later on in the year though.
  4. Sold mine early 2018 but still hanging around lol Miss it to bits, but had to let it go. Soon to be moving to the German side (which I thought I wouldn't do).
  5. I don't think I'd feel safe in a Zed with that power, it ain't designed to do it ... lol Crazy fast though.... (and its def ZED )
  6. I've now heard there putting a lesser powered 2.0 Turbo engine in it now too... dunno why, I bet the price drop isn't that much and doesn't open it up to a whole lot of other buyers who couldn't just buy the first variant. I keep seeing a matt grey (possible launch edition?) one round at my work or passing it a lot. It does look good and def Japanese from the outside at least. I wouldn't say its underwhelming from comments I've seen all over the net in various reviews/forums. Lets remember, although a pretty car with its clean lines the original Supra and its curvyness wasn't exactly ....amazing to look at lol Not much too it, long bonnet, curves...a spoiler lol.

    A Sad Day!

    It's a hard one! I remember doing it ....hated handing the keys to someone else lol Hopefully on to something better in the future!
  8. Just had a watch, an interesting video. At one point though he's like 'this is the Mustang'...and despite not being a fan of the actual Mustang much, saying that about this ...Amercian electrified Zafira...just arrggh. G Man don't do it!... haha
  9. Now thats a good/exciting looking thing! Yes it'll have the goppy mouth thing (but hey so did an XKR...) ...I like it!
  10. .... lol I really do hate this new genre of car... seems to have started with SUVs, then worked its way to the niche things like X6 etc... now they become electric....
  11. The whole things shocking lol... people waking up in the future saying look at my 'super van'... everything is gonna be electric and tall. Its like a nightmare... burn it with fire.... or maybe not as it will keep igniting... In all honestly though you can see it in mags, online car news...fulll of the SUV varient craze... its a bit depressing. God just give me a nice saloon or estate if anything..
  12. I can't tell you how uninterested the Mach-E makes me lol. It's like everything I never want from a car... lol Its high, its electric, its not nice looking.... the interior also is a bit too sparce.. like Teslas. Although I don't have a bunch of kids to stick in a vehicle, don't live in a city which taxes you everytime you wanna drive etc etc... so I'm sure people will buy it.... * slight sick in my mouth moment *
