Hey everyone! I didn't have a camera handy, so I can't give you photographic proof, but around 11:30 yesterday morning near Oxnard on highway 1, I saw a "convoy" of 3 new TTs (Red, Black, White) being led by an A3. They weren't moving very fast, and I got a wave from everyone, and a thumbs-up from the fellow A3 driver. I've been unsure about the looks of the new TT from photos, but seeing it on the road... definitely intimidating.

the front profile looked really awesome in my rear view mirror.

The European automotive press is very positive about the new TT yet the American press, most notably Car & Driver, do not consider the car a sports car. Funny thing is that C&D named the TT to the Best 10 list in 2000 and 2001! Not bad for a car slammed in the most recent article.
Audi may consider itself lucky that C&D does not consider the new TT a sports car, since a writer from this august periodical recently smashed a Ferrari 599 into a wall!

Thanks for the pics. The Mk2 looks great!

notice the amber in the headlights, the red rear turn signals, and lack of a center foglight. those rims look AWFUL but that front blurry pic kinda looks good.

...<font color="003366"> more like "mid-Atlantic" spec.
The cars in the States are still pretty much European spec/content cars with limited North American powertrain calibration. The cars that are regularly driven on U.S. roads also get the U.S. lighting and instrumentation package. But beyond that, the cars here are contented more like home market cars. To wit, the horrific rims on this 3.2.</font>

...<font color="003366"> The R&T piece was from the European drive event a couple of months ago. To date, an editor of only one U.S car magazine has driven one of the AAG/AoA TTs on <u>this side</u> of the Atlantic.
And that individual wasn't from R&T.</font>

I'm worried the TTS will be a bit out of my price range. I think I can handle the 3.2 though if it's 43-47k... anything above that won't work for me... I have a feeling the TTS will be around 50k and the TTR will be mid 50k. We'll see :)
