Z4 3.0 Coupe vs Audi 3.2 V6 Coupe

(Audi as in TT)

Which one is the better performer? I'm leaning towards the Z4 but wish to know your opinions.

Pretty much all you need to know. For my money, I'd get the Z4 Coupe 3.0si.

Thanks, I saw that vid. Why do they say the TT is a better ‘street car’? What exactly does that mean? Softer ride?

I have never experienced the Audi TT, but the Z4 is an excellent roadster and one of the most nimble cars I have ever driven.

Sucks man. The Z4 Coupe is still a capable car and nice to look at too. Never drove a TT, but I think the AWD helps during rain which might be why you heard it described as a better street car.

the dealer guy took me to this empty business district without any streetlights and scared the hell out of me and surprised me with dsg, doing 25 recommended corners entering at 65 and then flooring it with no wheel (slip/over/understeer)
braking is amazing, exhaust is wonderful, acceleration is seamless, and dsg FTW!

gotta mention the fresh new style

Don't worry, you won't miss the "M" version. Unless you require a lot of track duty from your Z4, the 3.0si is easier to live with everyday. (especially in HK)

I've driven the latest TT, and it's a bit more compliant compared to the Z4. I think that's why the video suggested that it's a better street car.

I was originally from HK myself, so I can feel your pain on car prices.
