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 

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 :lol: 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.

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!

Why not go all the way and go for the TTRS MK2. 340 HP. All those issues are typical of German cars. You just cant get round it. Never out of warranty with a German

They are an acquired taste for sure. I did like how you could hear the exhaust inside the car though...because in most Bmw's you can't hear the exhaust inside the cabin.
