    hi, would like to ask some advice from sifu-sifu . i barely find active post about Audi TTS,so i guess i only can ask here.

    i looking for 2010 recon Audi TTS, any sifu can give any advice how to choose a nice condition TTS?

    UK spec and Japan spec, which one u recommend ?

    i check carlist.com ,found out the car price around 200K++,some even 168k??

    where do i service my Audi TTS?

    new Audi TTS 2015 gonna launch soon, will the price of 2010 model drop?

    thx in advance

    2010 model price won't drop. This is a unique car. Unless the 2015 model is very good, people will still source for the 2010 model because of it's muscular lines.

    Anyway, regardless of what spec you go for - the DSG gearbox is very flimsy. Always make sure you test drive the car and drive slow. The TT has been known to have issues with slow driving and the gearbox not able to decide gears. If it's smooth driving at slow speeds (like 30-60km/h). If it's a bad GB, it'll jerk a lot like the gears trying to decide which gear it needs to be in. If you get that - avoid the car. It'll be expensive to fix.

    Are you looking for a convertible or hardtop?

    Is it the same 6 speed wet DSG as Golf R/GTI?

    Also TTS is much more powerful (270HP, 0-100 <5secs), it still has 4 seats as opposed to only 2 seats for the S2000, and then nowadays where got people selling s2000??

    Might be the same technology but I don't think Audi shares parts with VW but I could be wrong. The Audi TT I test drove the last time had a very aggressive gearbox, it changed gears very violently when throttled hard. The Golf is tame in comparison. If it is the same gearbox, I think the programming is very different

    I doubt cars only a few years old already got rust. If got rust, I won't buy! Why? Because rust is basically a skin cancer for cars!

    In UK they do have salts on roads during snowy season.
    its common with UK cars to watch out for rust in the under carriage.
    Also UK cars cost is cheaper than JDM ones.
    But,JDM cars have Japanese language inside and UK cars have English inside.
    Final decision is yours, if you able to find a UK car with minimal rust, TAKE IT !!!

    I'd think it would be easier to steal as well by just cutting thru the roof canvas, right? Unless replace with the hard top.

    The attraction if this car is the engine parts are soooooo desirable, and ppl willing to pay good money for those parts....

    cutting or ripping the canvas dont really matter for the pencuri, I think.

    Just saw this. Kate mentioned certain parts are shared between Audi and VW. Surprised that day she mentioned Lembu Genie uses Audi parts (not engine, some cabin body part).....:driver:

    Different brake caliper, the TTS already use 4 pots at the front, unless there's a TT upgrading to 4 pot calipers as well.
    Then of course look underneath to spot the rear drive axle, this one cannot lie already.
