New Titty Arse

Never been a big TT fan up until now but this actually looks and sounds rather nice (if you try to pretend you haven't seen the yellow roadster with black trim, which is really quite horrid):

The only shame is that it is auto-only, where the old one came with a manual...

Still got the 5 pot. Good. I was a fan of the last TT RS, so much more desirable for me than the 4 pots and their artificial farty noises (something of an Audi forte).

Rare though - I can't say I have seen many about.

Call me a hairdresser, but I like TT's and always have, they are lovely inside and just feel special. If the RS was just a bit less nose-led than the current one, I'd be interested potentially, one day...

Yes,  shame there's no manual option

Room for 2 biggish kids in the back and a manual box would be must haves for me.

Love the noise of the old ones though

Always liked them inside, but considered them too small. However gaining a lot of love for these as prices drop and presently on my potentials list.

I still hanker after a Mk 1 TT. I was not such a fan of the Mk 2 but this latest one looks far better.

TT RS - nice engine, auto no issue for me. But that horrible halfrauds spoiler stuck on the back just makes me say "no".

Baby in chair but not much beyond that I don't think, unless passenger seat is pushed far forward. Has anyone on here ever had one?

Exactly, would be a deal breaker for me if you can't delete it.  I'm a fan of the current TT as well.

I thought the current tt's drive quite well? Certainly what I have read suggests they aren't the understeering beasts of previous models.

Oddly coincidental, but I happen to be driving a TT Roadster at the moment, and it is indeed quite a lovely piece of kit. Remarkably balanced and pretty nimble.

Can't wait for the high-powered versions. I bet those will be amazing.

It is no different to what gets stuck on the back of limited edition porkers to my eyes! They have become right little over-detail fests.

I think the TTRS is supposed to drive very tidily Franki - but there is a difference between that and a dab of oppo whenever you want it, without over-working it...

So we need a TT R - no spoiler, manual 'box

If that. Tried my kids in one back in 2005 so a 7 yr old and 4 yr old with seat.

Neither could fit behind me, I'd agree it's baby in seat only I reckon.

Which is still useful! I reckon you could make it work as a family car for a couple of years

The spoiler is a shame but not a deal-breaker.

We had a 2007 2.0T-FSi for a couple of years. No problems for any size in the front, and you could squeeze small adults I. The back for very short journeys. Headroom as big an issue as legroom.

You could probably do a child seat till about 2 or 3 if you don't mind seat backs getting kicked.

Might be optional, like the last one, but I only recall ever seeing one Arse with the standard pop up jobbie.

We tried one with a child seat and it was physically impossible to get a baby and child seat in the back and an adult in the front without doing one or both an injury. On the other hand a couple of children between the ages of about 5 and 9 would probably fit in the back as long as there were no child seats involved.

Had the seat fitted, we would have had one.
