Seen a 2nd hand Audi TT I quite like the look of but the missus is taking the piss out of me relentlessly as it has red leather interior

Future classic if Mk1. Won't lose value if you keep it nice.

TTs were all about the lairy interiors. You can pretend you're in a So Solid video as you bowl around in it.

This one, wifey going in hard with the "mid life crisis" red leather bants.

Will only be used as a weekend runaround as she already has an SUV and I have an old estate.

You'd have more fun in an S2000.

Aren't these V6 TTs really heavy?

With the mrs on this one. Too red for me. Prefer a nice burgundy.

I think its the contrast of the photos makes 'em look dog cock red… in the flesh, I bet they ain't that garish.

Personally, I think red leather and silver is a classic racing combo colourway all way back to the 1st spyders and old merc SL's, I like it.

If you wanted you could probably flip your seats on ebay/tt forum and buy a different colour - ive done this a few times upgrading to sports seats, door cards you could do the same although id imagine that would be a bigger ballache.

Only thing id ditch is the auto for a manual or maybe spend a few k more and get a mk1 cayman

Most fukers only buy brand spanking new cars and never use the bus or the tube and only fly in private jets in case someone else's guff atoms get on the seat of their APCs.

That era Audi is easy to clock. Seats look suspiciously worn, car has probably done 100k. Even if it has done 45k, £7500 for a 2007 TT doesn't sound like a deal.

Yeah no idea if it's a good deal or not price wise but it's local and looks in decent nick and I like the idea of the 3.2 v6.

toocan amazing how much car you can get for the money with the Cayman and appreciate it's in a completely different league to a TT but don't fancy the running costs!

I used to have a MK2 and really liked it.

You deserve shit for red leather interior, though.

More like putting on the boxfresh CP's to buy a coffee for £4 from that place on the corner that isn't a chickenshop and the letting agent said meant the area was 'getting quite trendy', then going back to the flatshare to read a Moncocle article (bought from the newsagent near work) about the best Pisco bars in Santiago while their weird flatmate they ignore drinks their booze and plays psytrance.

Why a 3.2 and not a tts? Such a difference if youre just looking to get somewhat of a driving experience out of it.
