    The original Audi TT is underrated -- and beautiful. Today I'm reviewing an original Audi TT to show you what it's like -- and I'm showing you all the quirks and features of the 2001 Audi TT. I'm also driving the TT to explain what it's like behind the wheel.

    My father had this exact car. 2001 TT Quattro, Nimbus Grey with Baseball Glove interior. Lovely car, handled like it was on rails. He passed a few years back, thanks for the memory Doug.

    The European hairdresser car is considered beautiful? I mean they are great value but you either have to be very feminine or extremely masculine to drive one of those.

    Points missed. The storage box between the seats on the back wall. I call it the elbow activated box. Because you hit your elbow on it quite easy and it pops open. It also has a soft top cover that stores in the truck. I really cleans up the look of car with the top down but is a pain to install, hard to get in the truck and takes up too much space. A fun drive!

    I have never paid the TT much mind because I too believed it to just be a dressed up Golf, which isn't bad at all, but wasn't much else than that -> I'd rather just have the Golf. But this was really eye opening for me. Never looked at it with such detail and it's really got some awesome points about it. It has just the right amount of tech, simple, elegant all around, very nice. Definitely see this car in a whole new light now. Very cool indeed.

    Unfortunately, it’s default FWD platform was it’s downfall.
    If it was RWD by default, I strongly believe it would of had a stronger following.

    Never been a fan of that generation TT. Looks like a squished Beetle designed by someone with a black turtleneck. To round and to symmetrical front back. Also - the thing with the wheel arches in the hood is Audis fault? Most cars looks like shit with this design IMHO. Especially the Arteon.
    Love those seats though!

    FYI: The 180 came in both FWD and AWD. Both had the single exhaust, although many enthusiasts upgraded to a dual.

    Doug is the kinda guy that thinks the old Audi TT is a beautiful as a Porsche 918 or Ford GT. And compares it to the Dodge Viper.

    I have a Audi TT 2000 180 hp The car for a person who loves to modify dream it’s endless the body kits that they have for this car can transform it into something that looks like it came out to show room yesterday my car gets so much attention wherever I go I pull up next to a brand new Lexus or a brand new BMW nobody knows that it’s a 2000 I got a brand new body kit on it rims tires and dumped about 340 horses into the car now it’s expensive to modify it but I have personal issues by paying child support so if I buy a brand new car they want to know where the money‘s coming from so I bought an old car and fixed it up it’s a 2000 so it’s not worth anything and no matter what she says the book value says it’s a 2000 vehicle and it’s not worth anything it has 225,000 miles on it but you know I completely remanufactured everything so either pay a car note or remanufactured the car it might be a little bit more expensive but you will have a car that’s not a “ Me to” car you will truly stand out by yourself there are not many of them on the road once you modify it you have an awesome vehicle one more thing haldex The Quattro system I can control it with a touch motion controller I can go from front wheel drive or all wheel drive to rear wheel drive at the touch of a button and add 50 more horses to the car HPA motor sport

    We bought a 2001 tt Quattro a year ago. awesome little car all the way around. We actually found just a couple weeks ago by accident. That it has a factory hidden multiple CD changer behind the drivers seat. Located in the side panel of the rear seat.

    Audi has started a lot of things on car designs that ended being copied by almost all auto makers.

    My wife and I have had 2 sub 60k mile 01 TT's. Fantastic cars. Unfortunately 1 was totaled when I was side swiped by a semi truck and we hit a dear outside ellensburg wa and totalled the other. So sad because both had to be among the cleanest 01's remaining.
