    2007 Audi TT 2.0TFSI 200bhp test-drive

    Hello guys, it has been a long time since the last thread I posted....but anyways....

    Yesterday I had the great oportunity to test-drive for about two hours a brand new audi TT 2.0TFSI of 200bhp....Let me start by saying that when this car was introduced and also the previous one, it didnt attract me that much, in fact my opinions where more negative than positive , it didnt attracted me that much!!

    Now let me say I completely think different

    Those of you interested in this cateogry, let me say its a GREAT candidate to have in mind, probably in the top of the list.....

    The car had only 300km in the tach, but that was no problem for me

    I will start with its great engine sound, specially coming from the exhaust, it really reminds me of a mini r53 cooper S(may be it would be better to say Cooper S John Works though ), has a very nice deep sound when you accelerate from idle...

    The engine, I think is G-R-E-A-T...........it really sticks you to the seats, MUCH more than my cooper S , you can go in 6th gear at very low speeds and it will never stall...Great catch up at any gears.....

    Amazing feeling when you drive the car at respectfull speeds (150kph), it has great stability, amazing feeling you have with that R8 style steering wheel, clutch isnt at all hard but brakes seems to do their work great(and believe they did )

    Probably the best thing of it (apart of the engine sound, inside and outside.....is the interior of the car, probably you guys are going to kill me, but I finded even more attractive and more sporty than in a 997 , believe the cockpit is 10/10 I was in love with the looks, the panels, the steering wheel with that flat line in the bottom....Audi this time really did a great job with the interior, and I cant imagine how the R8 will be......

    Basically I drived a little bit out of my mind , but not exceeding speeds of over 180kph(as its something I dont enjoy that much, speeding at 200kph+), but I really enjoyed switching gears from first, second to third at redline, then going straightly to 6th and calm down, then again shifting back to 3rd and so on.....Amazing sound in the interior, not at all quite (and thats what I specially like about it )

    Consumption was always in 10L/100km, and I wasnt driving relaxed AT ALL, so that also really surprised me(my cooper S will never go below 10 liters!!! )

    The looks of the car, really reminded me of the Audi R8, in fact those that dont care that much about cars, can easily confuse the TT with the R8, I like the rear and also the front, I loved the seats (they where in leather, I dont know if that's an option, may be yes), but front seats where perfect for sport driving and very nice looking....A negative point??....well for sure the rear seats....I dont know what Audi thinks about human evolution , but no way an adult person can seat in there for more than 5minutes!!...Those who say rear seats of the 911 are for no use, then they better go and check the new audi's TT

    Overall I would give the TT a 9.5/10 I really enjoyed it, and for sure it would be a car I would have in mind before making a move...

    Next time I drive next to a new TT I will think twice before playing with him

    And this was "only" the little brother of the family, I cant imagine how the R8 would be....When I finished driving it..... Ron Houston camed to my mind, seriously .....He is going to enjoy the R8 soooo much, that I must start thinking the R8 is at the same level as the 997 , When is it coming Ron???

    some pics!!! sorry for the bad quality mobile phone pics, I didnt thought it was going to like me, that much!!
    Also it was a rainy day, so it was perfect for the test drive , but not for pics

    Chip it and get power around 230 hp it will be much fun to drive much power and same mpg as stock

    That 2.0TFSI engine is really solid i drove it 95k km with over 60km chipped.. Never had a annoying Turbo failure or issue

    Thanks for the review

    Re: 2007 Audi TT 2.0TFSI 200bhp test-drive

    The TT is an attractive car indeed. I had the opportunity to drive the 250hp AWD version with DSG on the Nürburgring GP track for several laps and have to admit that this car was a very positive surprise to me! Very nimble, low weight, sufficient power, OK brakes, nice DSG... Not bad in that price range

    Re: 2007 Audi TT 2.0TFSI 200bhp test-drive

    Yes, the TT is a very nice car. Alex, just a question though: do you really dislike driving at over 200 km/h?

    hahaha , may be I expressed myself incorrectly..(which I did )....

    Its not that, but I still have to learn a lot, gain more experience with the years, and obey my HEAD instead of my HEART , specially at this age(right now I am nearly turning 22) but I've seen so many crazy drivers with my age or even less, going nuts all over the streets overtaking with no limits its something I just cant understand!....

    Dont get me wrong, I'm not an angel, but at least I know where is the limit :grin.....Above 200kph I start to be not nervious but intimidated, also yesterday it was rainning, and I didnt want to go over 170-180kph , but anyway, when I drive (no matter what car is it, either the 997, boxster S , cooper S etc I just dont exceed speeds of 200kph regularly, I prefer accelerating specially in 2nd and 3rd gear and then go straight to 5th or 6th gear (not even driving in 4th gear), after that engine relaxs and when I see the time, I go again for it.....I could not see myself right now going crazy on the autobahn at 280-290kph .......yet

    Re: 2007 Audi TT 2.0TFSI 200bhp test-drive

    thanks guys for the comments, I thought it would be interesting for the rennteam family, as this car really surprised me

    Re: 2007 Audi TT 2.0TFSI 200bhp test-drive

    The 2.0 is a great engine, I have one in my GTI, incredbily flexible

    Re: 2007 Audi TT 2.0TFSI 200bhp test-drive

    So would all of you choose this over a 350Z?
