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 Its 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. ROFL a poor persons 599. I'm not going to lie. The 599 is a classic along with the Extreme 700HP 599XX. Regarding the TT. They still have the dreaded window mechanism issue. If you can put up with these things then I dont see why a Tech pack TT MK3 wouldnt be a goer. Prices are coming down too. Those farting noises are the best youre going to get unless you go N/A or better yet 5 cylinder. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
