A bit off topic but those of you living in Canada may understand. Its time to put away the 4C for the winter and I am thinking of getting a winter car this year. Looking at a 10 year old Audi TT (Mk2). The Quattro awd makes sense for the winter. This will replace my rwd c300. I had no problems in past winters with the Merc. It drives ok with a set of winter tires except when I had to stop and start on steep hills. Anyone here has experience with TTs? It seems to still have some sports car feel vs getting an SUV. Does AWD make a big difference. (in this case I believe its Haldex FWD biased system)

I had an mk2 tt rs with 500 + hp
I also reduced it's weight.
It was very fast on the straight line. Much faster than the alfa.
The engine sounds nice.
It was a manual. Too fast to be able to keep up with the gear changes.

My wife owned two 2nd gen TTs and both were great. Still her favorite car ever. Neither ever gave us any problems.

In the market for a TTRS for the wife primarily. Recommended it as an option to a friend who bought one and likes it. Pros are grip/traction/easy to drive fast. Cons are somewhat dead steering feel, understeer and more power than finesse. I am only looking at prior gen not current btw...$30-$50k range and idea is to outfit with all seasons (my sports cars are summer only). This will be wife’s car but... she will share... I hope!

Which trans? An old manual is good. An old DSG isn't. Newer DSG's are better. AWD is mostly FWD until a front tire spins. Mild understeer. Good seasonal tires transform the platform.
