- Underpowered, turbo lag, not worth cost
Purchased As New
Nice looking but too costly for such poor performance. Turbo lag is noticeable and overall power doesn't compare to others

- 32 MPG on freeway, Major head turner
- Bluetooth could be better
I originally went to the Audi dealership looking for a 2006 Mark 1 TT. The pictures of the Mark 2 TT didn't really impress me much compared to the unique styling of the Mark 1. What really surprised me was how my impression of the Mark 2 completely changed when I finally saw it in person. The combination of the new wider body and the aggressive design of the headlights gives the Mark 2 much more "presence" than the Mark 1- which really looks rather tame afterwards.
Anyway, the 2.0 liter engine is peppy and the car responds at the speed of thought. I've never felt the need to floor it while trying to accelerate to get up to speed on the freeway. Once when I was accelerating onto the freeway to match the speed of other traffic, I happened to look down on my speedometer and was shocked to notice I had climbed to 80 MPH without even thinking about it.
The lighter body weight of the car coupled with the smaller engine also gives it excellent gas mileage. On an 15 mile freeway trip I can easily get 29 MPG.
On a 35 mile trip I've been able to just hit 32 MPG.
The AWD handles snow very well though the lower ride of the car can result in the bottom of the car grinding against mounds of hardened snow- which sounds kind of painful.
Comparing this to a BMW 330CI, the dual-clutch S-Tronic shifting is brilliant and does not suffer from the lurches that are typical on the BMW. The suspension also feels more dampened so the ride is more comfortable, but it isn't springy like a sedan.
If you get this car I also recommend getting the chrome exhaust tips- it really helps make the car look more "complete".
The bluetooth works with the iPhone although the first time you use it, it will take a long time to download the phone books if you have a lot of entries. Also cycling through entries is a pain if you have a long list. Other than that it works brilliantly. The audio is loud and clear on both the send and receive side....read morehide
