I'm looking at changing my car, I'm working as an apprentice electrician.

I'm thinking of getting an Audi TT, I'll probably get screwed on insurance but it'd be bad anyway.
They'd cost around €5000-€6000 for a 2008 or newer.
€280 for road tax.
1.6 Petrol.

I just have a small tool box, so no need for a van or anything like that, it's only ever me driving and I drive 2hrs+ a day..

I'd probably get a small part loan (so I can buy the car and then sell my own one (which I need for work)..
I've no other costs and I use my car a lot so I think it'd be worth putting a little extra into it.
What do ya think?

Get a better car for the price. Also worth investing in a diesel if you're doing long journeys.

Are you sure you're not working as a hairdresser?

If you're going to get a TT then at least get a good one. At least medium trim engine and ideally 4motion/AWD otherwise what's the point. They're hilariously impractical (although slightly more so with a rear seat delete - not that you can sit people in the back really anyway).

If you're driving 2 hours a day you'd be better off getting a nice diesel with some nice boaty handling for good cruising.

If you're insisting on getting one then they're not terrible vehicles - just your standard VAG affair. Nice to sit in, nice to drive, be prepared for some niggly problems.

If you're interested then check out Sarah-N-Tuned on Youtube and her project Teeter Tot Audi TT. It's not had as thorough a rebuild as her MR2 but she's done a lot of work to it. Spent tons of time tracking down silly little electrical issues. It was a heap when she bought it though.
