Audi TT mk2 | 1.8 TFSI 160 CV | SwyDRIVE | [ENG_SUB]

Hi guys, today we are on board of my Audi TT. We’ll take a ride so i introduce it to you. I decided to change my car last year and i bought this TT. It has the 1.8 TFSI with 160 horsepower. It covers the 0-100 in 7.2 seconds, has a top speed of 236 km/h and a torque of 250 nm. With this engine it reaches high speeds in a short time; it earns RPM very quickly and turbo-lag is not perceived and I appreciate this a lot. I love turbo engines but usually they have this annoying turbo-lag problem and despite times changes, it is very hard to fix that. Engine and gearbox are the main merits of this car. The engine hasn’t too much power, i don’t think it’s undersized. The gearbox is a 6 speed manual. I preferred this option because the feedbacks are better. Of course, it has a wing. Everybody’s cars should have a wing! It always respond very well, it fits well in the corners, it’s balanced thanks to the big tires of 19”. It has an excellent grip but let’s talk about flaws now. The worst flaw of this car is traction. My car has FWD and it’s a pain in the a**. It’s an hassle because when you accelerate it loses the grip. TCS takes action and it’s annoying because the torque gets cut off. That’s why i recommend the TT with Quattro traction. Another flaw is the lack of space. The backseats space is low, the label 2+2 doesn’t reflect reality. As you can see there’s no space for legs behind my seat. If the front passenger isn’t too tall, maybe one person can fit the backseat but the rear window is still too close to passenger’s head. Eventually the last flaw is the exhaust sound. The sound isn’t deep enough for a turbo engine; the only moment of glory is during the cold start up, when the sound is louder (as you heard at the beginning). I expected more from a 160hp turbo engine considering that cars with similar engines, like the Mini Cooper S, have roaring sounds. I would love it for my car so if you have a TT and you have got some advices for an aftermarket exhaust, i will be happy to hear them. It’s in my wishlist. Management costs. TT are not cheap but it’s a achievable sport car. The engine isn’t too big so the Italian car tax is 360€, not too expensive for a petrolhead. In my opinion it’s a very stupid tax. The insurance is a very personal cost, because it depends from different factors, mainly from the owner’s category. I can’t help you in this, the best thing to do is a price quotation at your insurance company. TT petrol costs aren’t heavy. Urban use covers 10/12 km/l without difficulty. Highway use covers 17/18 km/l. Extra urban use, with 70 km/h speed limit, the best result is 23 km/l…holy s**t! It’s not a thirsty car, you can accelerate and have fun driving it, however if you cover a lot of kilometres get ready to spend your money on petrol. You can easily find an affordable mk2 TT on second hand market with the 1.8 TFSI or other versions. Thanks for watching, push the LIKE button and SUBSCRIBE to my Channel for more videos. Ciao!
