Prior 11 135i owner, current 12 TT-RS owner

Went from an 11 135i a cpl years ago, to awaiting an allocation on a 1M that never came to fruition (sad face). And im brought back after a nice run in with a fellow 135i owner on the way home.

Thought id share my 135i replacement, and my 1M denial consolation car, my 2012 TT-RS.
















NEW TAG, arrived just today:

It is resonating a bit more as it was shot in my garage, on a cold start. Sound setter in person.

Looks good, I like the red accent on the wheels.

There's a white one around here I think. Haven't seen it for awhile though.

Love the car and I wouldn't be in denial one bit since that car is faster than a 135i or 1M in a straight line or around a road course.

Great car. Such a beast of engine these cars have. Totally different than the measurable I5 in VWs.

Awesome choice and lucky you for ending up with the better car due to the denial! I chose my TT-RS over a 1M in an easy choice for me.

I loved that car when I had it, insane grip and glorious bespoke engine. Only sold it because a Boxster Spyder presented itself that was too good to pass up! Would love to have another one again some day. Enjoy it!

The wheels are a factory option, just painted stock "rotor" Audi wheels. Looks better on the car than the silver stock color. Its the same reason I opted for the carbon fiber mirrors, instead of the silver capped stockers.

It drives definitely more sporty than the 135i. The standard Magnetic Ride suspension on the Audi even with sport mode off, is stiffer than the 135i with M sport. It has such a different feel, mostly due to that and the AWD. You can definitely huck it into corners waaay more aggressively than the 135i.

Even with all the traction control off and in sport mode, it has soo much more grip and cornering stability.

I did look at the Cayman R. But, as a two seater, would be even more impracticable than the small back seats in the Audi. I like being able to take the wife and kid out on my fun drives too.

I haven't had any issues in 16 months of ownership...

Later models? They only made the TTRS here for 12-13.
