    Furkan Turfanda 3 года назад Lol the RX-8 is "cheaper." Is that before or after your new engine :D
  • Generic Memes
    Generic Memes 2 года назад Oh come now, rotaries only explode when people treat them like garbage and short shift them. People don't know that you have to rev them out like an old bike.
  • Furkan Turfanda
    Furkan Turfanda 2 года назад +Michael Tarantino Yes yes, BUT. Not the RX8, the RX8 is shit.
  • Generic Memes
    Generic Memes 2 года назад @Furkan Turfanda I've never had a problem, but fair enough. Each car is different
  • TheWretchedWorld
    TheWretchedWorld 2 года назад its cheaper to rebuild a rotary than it is to fix the double clutch gearbox on the audi when it breaks.... which it willl
  • xiahoupaul19
    xiahoupaul19 2 года назад And let's not forget that if you get an Audi TT, you are gonna have to spend a fortune to by clothes and accessories to match it.
  • Steven Farrington
    Steven Farrington 2 года назад It's far more likely you'll be replacing apex seals than repairing a DSG which has proven to be fundamentally reliable since the majority of its internals come from a manual gearbox. The only issues so far come from lack of maintenance (oil changes) and control units which were manufactured faulty and changed under warranty.
  • Low Rez
    Low Rez 2 года назад haha nah the rotary in the Rx8 is notorious for dying for no reason even with proper maintenance. push it just once and the next drive you take it on and it will break on you. Hell the average rx8 owner only keeps the car for 1.7 years before they sell it. Besides the Rx8 is marketed as a practical sports car and if using it as its intended purpose breaks it then the excuse "you are driving it wrong, you are supposed to drive it like a tdi you are trying to get every last mpg out of duh" is completely idiotic. It's like the people who put coil-overs on their cars but never track it, or the guys who buy pickup trucks only to put over-sized rims and low profile tires on them. It was like Mazda said, "hey you know what we should do? we should make a Japanese car with the styling of a Korean car, the luxury of a European car, and the reliability of a German car."

    Dave Moffatt 2 года назад its a mileage thing, around 70k before a rebuild which if you want the car you will get
  • Isaac spohn
    Isaac spohn 2 года назад Ady 2005 nope, they go out because after about 80k miles, your seals go out.
  • Dave Moffatt
    Dave Moffatt 2 года назад People do mistreat them yes, and yes they get rebuilt with better apex seals
  • Daniel Lennon
    Daniel Lennon Год назад my mate recently bought a second hand rx8 for 10 k, then spent another 10 k rebuilding the engine 😂😂😂
  • dave runner
    dave runner Год назад Apex seals, bitch aint they?
  • SuperHappyplant
    SuperHappyplant Год назад Or...or... you could buy a car with a decent, well built engine in the first place. Mazda are known for reliability but that Wankel rotary is an idea best left to the pages of history

  • Kenan Coskun
    Kenan Coskun 2 недели назад It is £7000 less and an engine rebuild cost like 4 or £5000 so it is even cheaper after you rebuild you engine

  • TheLuckyDawg24
    TheLuckyDawg24 3 года назад Funny how people back then didn't know what to call a double clutch transmission
  • Kunstbrustbomber
    Kunstbrustbomber 3 года назад well a flappy paddle Gearbox doesn't necessarily mean that it is a double clutch gearbox that just means it is an automatic that you can also manually shift by using the paddles they only had a short moment of glory in the early 2000s tho because then the double clutch came in
  • TheCoolSquare
    TheCoolSquare 3 года назад +Kunstbrustbomber Yeah but this is a dual clutch transmission, watch the video, what he explains is exactly how a DCT works.
  • Kunstbrustbomber
    Kunstbrustbomber 3 года назад +TheCoolSquare thats rights the Audi in this video has a DCT, but they didn't call it flappy paddle Gearbox. F.E . the Porsche 996-996 were available with a flappy paddle Gearbox but just with one Clutch.
  • John Doe
    John Doe 2 года назад (изменено) When people call a dual clutch transmission such a thing it does feel a bit like they simply don't care for the car or it makes them look like they have no idea what they are speaking of. My Uncle's Passat has a DSG and I am not sure if it has paddle shifters but With or without them it is a nice car. It is a TDi and feels quick. I would buy it if he ever sold it. The TDi gets very good mileage. I know this is an impartial review but it feels as if that guy hates Audis.

    twotailedavenger 2 года назад FIRST-GEN AUDI TT: A man-bun on four wheels.
  • TheNecromancer6666
    TheNecromancer6666 Год назад twotailedavenger First gen TT is an icon. Its like an Etype or the Audi Quattro.
  • KevinTheFirefighter
    KevinTheFirefighter Год назад Nah its not an icon it shares a platform with the golf mk4, comparing this to the audi quattro is like comparing a bmw 330i e90 to a bmw m3 e30 or a merc e350 w211 to a merc w124 e500.
  • Thyer Alex

  • Ian Visser
    Ian Visser 6 месяцев назад @Farina Marcini aged quite well I'd say, as long as you dont leave the engine limited, that 3.2L has waaaaaaaay more potential than they sell it from factory. Still looks great and I can vouch for my 3.2 drawing eyes from EVERYONE even when standing next to Maserati's and Porsche's. Let alone when i open the engine up, with a branched exhaust it is pure car porn and has made ford mustang drivers look like idiots (more than usual) when they are the quiet car around...
  • Mr. Spiff
    Mr. Spiff 4 года назад As a kid I always loved this car cause it had such a distinct and cute face. I still love these early 2000 models more cause now it looks more generic. I can totally see why people see this as a girl's car but I think it's awesome none the less
  • Ti Co
    Ti Co 4 года назад Same I'm looking at on 02. These new ones look too bubbly and rounded :/
  • TrojkaWolf
    TrojkaWolf 4 года назад @Ti Co im planning on buying one from 1998 and looks good, not that much of a girl car in my opinion xD
  • Mr. Spiff
    Mr. Spiff 4 года назад I never thought so but a lot of people do, it's just a car i never see enough of I guess because with its price range people typically make the jump to like a porsche or a BMW or something more generic
  • TrojkaWolf
    TrojkaWolf 4 года назад @Mr. Spiff that's exactly why i want the TT you don't see him that much! and the beauty! 
  • iNSANiTY
    iNSANiTY 3 года назад @Ti Co What are you talking about? Did you see the 2016 one? Its nice and it is not bubbly and rounded. Its actually quite funny you say that as the older models are more rounded than the newer ones
  • iCloud Henshaw
    iCloud Henshaw 3 года назад All audis, vw brand line of cars between 2002 and 2009 performance cars were all based really on the same engine base and chassis slightly and that's why they were the best modern line of cars that vw brought out I have a 2008 golf and it's almost identical no my neighbours 2007 TDI which has a different shell basically I love vag cars no hate or trolling here dw

  • Zero Ninety
    Zero Ninety 3 года назад 1. What does my not posting any videos have to do with my expressing an opinion on the Audi TT? 2. This is a website for watching videos and commenting on them, it's not facebook. But if it makes you feel any better I live in Bristol UK, I like going to gigs, photography and travelling. I'm also a Pisces and my favourite crisp flavour is Cheese And Onion. Happy? 3. If I wanted to 'play it safe from ridicule' I wouldn't comment on anything now would I? 4. Yes to both. You can get APR tuned VAG cars that aren't designed for hairdressers and posers BTW, I know because I drive one ;-)

  • TheCamshafter
    TheCamshafter 4 года назад I have always liked the styling of the TT and the interior is class. But too impractical for me so have an A3 sportback. So many comments saying girls car, bad design or even Audi's worst car. Get a grip. Its an amazing design with excellent build quality, proven engines and transmissions. Like anyone on here could design any car that will sell in millions. It's a love it or hate it car. I love it. The VW Beetle IS a girls car though!

  • Kutsy
    Kutsy 2 года назад Iphone if you decide to buy new. And samsung j5 if you buy used... Thats one of the best things for the price if you buy used one... TT 2001 looks brilliant and is not terrible performance wise considering you can buy one for £1300. However buying new is as you said, an iphone. You pay shit loads for quarter of same price performance of other products and value of it drops to so low after a year goes by. Anyways, i agree that new TT is overpriced, however i would buy myself a used one if insurance group wasnt that big on it... Young drivers have it rough on insurance, forced to ride motorcycles or ford ka's :D

  • John Doe
    John Doe 2 года назад (изменено) Ah but does the TT RS have a V6 like some Audis do or a VR6 (narrow angle) like VW has been using? I do not know how different the two are but I would imagine them to be likely to use completely different parts internally. The very least that would be different is the crankshaft.

  • numberstation
    numberstation 2 года назад No big deal. Many cars share floor pans and running gear across different models, doesn't make them bad cars, but it does make them cheaper.
  • Eric George
    Eric George 2 года назад @numberstation I think that the Audi TT is very expensive for what it is... 
  • numberstation
    numberstation 2 года назад Eric George The Mk1? Maybe. I will say, though, that for a car whose production stopped in 2006, good examples still hold their money, and the V6 and 225 bhp 1.8 are still quick cars even by today's standards.
  • Eric George
    Eric George 2 года назад @numberstation I am sure that they are indeed good cars, I just would not want to get one, that's all. 
  • Kutsy
    Kutsy 2 года назад (изменено) New ones are very expensive indeed, however used ones for some reason go stupidly cheap. You can buy used TT for 1300 these days...

  • Kutsy
    Kutsy 2 года назад @Eric George Not really, its literally the same model you see on the video. Although i admit new ones are better in both performance and looks, but old model isnt too shabby!

  • Richard Keith
    Richard Keith 4 года назад I just replaced my 2000 180 Quattro with a 2001 225 Quattro. Mr. Clarkson can say what he likes of course, I find it a fun-to-drive solid little car.
