Buying experience

4 out of 5

Type of dealer you bought from?
Independent

Did you buy this car new?
Used

What price did you pay?
£15,000

When did you buy the car?
December 2006

Did you get a good deal and why?
Well at the time I thought the price was a little too high. But then they did tax it for me, gave me a full Audi service and fixed my personal number plates. So overall I was happy.

Is there any special reason why you bought this car?
Wasn't looking to upgrade my MX5 at the time. However, When I first spotted the TT I thought it was a lovely 'black' car. I test drove it, loved it, bought it ! It wasnt until I picked it up a few days later that I realised it was blue not black !! Yes I am colour blind but its one of those colours that looks different in changing lights. I call it my mood car, except black or blue it makes me very happy.

What was the dealer like?
Very good, a family business. I had a mechanical fault which occurred just days after the 12 month warranty had expired. They fixed it no charge. Couldn’t fault their service.

Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Comfortable, powerful, great road holding, safe.

What's it like to park?
No problem to park. Although the TT is not a small car it still fills a garage and parking spot. Steering I feel falls short especially if you want full steering lock to do a U turn, can let you down.

Living with it

5 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
Nothing major with the car. Although to own, a beautiful car can have its expensive draw backs. I garage my car, however, on two occasions whilst parked in a public place it has been spray painted and keyed which cost me dearly !

What's most practical about your car?
What is practical about 2 seaters. I have owned 2 seaters all my life the only practical thing is, if you have a family, to run a 2nd car, a family car.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
Love the electric hood and electric windbreak, also the heated leather seats are fab for cold crisp winter top-less driving !
