Evening,

I'm considering selling my existing car a Nissan 350z and getting a mk2 Audi TT, so have just joined the forum to learn more about them :)

So possibly a new TT owner and frequent forum member soon.

Hi Ryan & dlb tt, Welcome to the TTF.

Service history is very important. cambelt/water pump every 65k miles or 5 years which ever comes first, dash instruments (dashpod) read correctly, coolant temp reaches 90 within a couple of miles & stays there.
Get written confirmation of cambelt/water pump change or reduce price by £500 & get it replaced ASAP.
3.2 V6 no turbo or cambelt to worry about, so should be more reliable, DSG may be weak link, unless you can find a manual.& a nicer exhaust note.
Don't rush into it. A good TT is a wonderful car, a bad un can be a money pit.
Plenty of good uns out there, but probably more bad uns, so as I said don't rush into it.
Hoggy. :D

Thanks for the all the welcomes and information.

I am looking for a mk2, probably a 2007 or 2008 model in either white or black. I really like the look of the TTS but unfortunately they are beyond my budget.
