#15 of 19 TT vs. BMW 335i

If you don't have children, grab the TT!!! I can tell you you are are going to love it. I have 2 teenagers who want the TT but deserve to be comfortable. What a sacrifice! I just don't like the styling on the BMW, whatever the model. I may go and check out the 335i though just for the practial side of it. At this point, it's not even about the $$$...

I've just about convinced myself that the TT is the way to go as long as I can fit one adult sideway in the rear seats for short trips. This rarely happens, but it does happen. For the rare times it happens, I can endure the complaints as long as they can be squeezed in the back. The other caveat for me is that our kid is an 85 lb dog. She has to fit in the back with the back seats down. I'm more confident on her fitting than getting one adult in the back seats.
The pluses of the TT are that it is significantly less money and more fun. I find light cars to be more fun (given enough HP) and the TT is much lighter than the 335i.
#17 of 19 No perfect car

I am also looking at the Audi TT. I am just afraid of the build quality. The Audi TT has alot of features that I like but I know a couple of Audi owners that complain about oil leaks before their car had 60k miles. I think the BMW might be built better than the Audi. The new Mercedes C-class that is coming out this year might be interesting. I heard that Mercedes made a commitment to quality. What's up with the grills on all these new cars in the past few years (i.e. Chrysler 300, Audi)? They don't look like cars but trucks.

No leaks of any kind on my TT Quattro '03; handling is superior on this car; only thing were a few electrical problems ie., windows wouldn't go up all the way (I live in snow country...) Handles amazing in the snow so I've only got good things to say about this car. The only thing is the back seats (they only fit 10 year olds and under comfortably. The new TT is awful looking, can't believe the North American grill...I may just grab the new 4-door jeep and pray something else better comes along. Can't find any car that grabs me like the TT did. I had to have it. I need to have that feeling again...Good luck to you!
