The 2001 TT's in the Atlanta area are selling for about invoice. I don't know about the 2002 TT's, probably not much of a discount, just my guess. I drove the 2001 TT coupe because the salesman wouldn't let me drive a convtertible TT. That really ticked me off. I refuse to buy a car I cannot test drive. Some dealerships are just snooty that way. It drives me nuts. I usually just walk out and go to another dealership (there's plenty to choose from here in Atlanta). I've heard of Porsche dealerships here in Atl doing the same "snooty" thing. Porsche dealerships can justify being snooty though b/c of their higher prices. Audi dealerships can't even pretend to be on the same level as Porsche so there's no reason for them to act that way.
#142 of 512 Performance Tuning (Suspension & Intake)
Oct 22, 2001 (6:23 pm)
OK fellow TT owners, who has the info on suspension parts? I'm talking coilovers vs springs and/or shocks. What about cold intake systems vs just K&N filters? Id like to lower my ride height yet refrain from getting such a stiff ride. I've already installed 18" MasItaly's on Pirelli P7000's and the ride wasnt too bad, but now I'm looking for improved handling and a little extra HP boost. Also, who knows about what the extra HP created by a chip does to your tranny? I hear that the torque increase can be more than what the tranny can handle, is that true?
Thanks guys and gals
seriously itching for performance mods!!

These stories are pretty scary. I've owned several OLD Saabs (not exactly known for reliability) and nothing I've been through compares to this. I guess if this were me, I'd get rid of the car. Then again, my web skills pale in comparison to his. Yikes.

Why is this forum so quiet? Folks like me who are considering a TT would like to hear from the owners.
#146 of 512 TT--Significant blind spot with top up???
Dec 19, 2001 (11:56 am)
I am a prospective TT owner. I have recently read a review stating that the TT has a significant blind spot with the top up. Can anyone verify this? If you currently own a TT I would like to hear from you on this subject.
#147 of 512 TT(180hp) vs. BMW Z3(2.5)

TT(180hp) vs. BMW Z3(2.5)? I am leaning more towards buying a TT. Any input from anyone on this debate?
Dec 27, 2001 (11:01 am)
Based on the current models, I'd go with the TT just b/c it's the new kid on the block and so attractive. TT also has a decent sized trunk for short trips whereas the Z3's trunk is a little small. The Z3 drives better though b/c of the TT's turbo lag. Last, an all new Z3 is coming out next year. If you can wait, might want to see what the new Z3 offers.

the TT roadster does have a pretty big blindspot--like other drop-tops. however, i installed euro mirrors (they're split mirrors) that eliminated the blindspot entirely. as a matter of fact, i liked the mirrors so much, i also installed them on my grocery-getting sedan. they're about 140 bucks, and well worth the money for any car. we installed them ourselves; it wasn't difficult.
the TT is awesome.

Maxwella,thank you for the advice. I will definitely look into the euro mirrors(when I get the car, that is). I am glad that you like the TT.
