Don't forget the V6 250. I have an '01 TT coupe quattro with the 225HP
motor and the 6 speed manual and I really like it. Make sure you get an
Audi Certified one, though, if you're buying used. It will take some of
the edge off the niggling problems you're bound to have.
Go to one of the many car sites (cars.msn.com or edmunds.com etc and look up
Myself? Had a 180hp 5sp FWD TT.....next owned a Mercedes SLK320 6sp and now
the V6 250hp TT w/DSG tranny.....the new TT blows away all the other TT
models (I had driven a friend's 225 a bit). Personally, I would not bother
with anything BUT the new one.....cause everything else in TT land plaes in
comparison....been there, done that and know the deal..
You obviously havent driven a 225HP with an APR chip. With 267HP+,
It'll blow the doors off that silly V6. Long live the turbos!!!
And, for a lot less than what you would pay for a V6 over a T4, you
could install a stage III kit that will give you near 300HP and
300ft-lb of torque. Talk about paling in comparison... Dont count
out the T4 cars. That 1.8T is one of the best engines on the planet.
The same cannot be said for the V6.
Plus, the extra weight of the V6 really upsets the balance of the car.
