So...If you HAD to sell your car and are not allowed to buy another one, WHAT WOULD YOU BUY?

The Audi TT-RS is an awesome AWD Turbocharged sportscar with a 6 speed manual. Insanely powerful with 0-60 time coming in anywhere from 4.2, all the way down to 3.6 seconds! The car is fast to say the least. Much more torque than my 2016 Nismo 370Z and is way more practical.

It is not quite as sharp in the handling department compared to the Nismo Z, nor does it have the raw dramatic feel. But it's faster, handles pretty amazing, looks ridiculous and most definitely is the car I would buy if the Nismo was not an option!

It does come in around $7,000 more than my car, both being used, but maybe a supercharger on the Z would put them directly neck and neck?

So what would you replace your current car with if you had too?

what is bmw 1M?

Yes, bought wrong car. Should have bought an 86 (mini supra for your analogy) or a Camaro (mini corvette?) or Mustang (mini GT?). 86 is much cheaper and is an actual Japanese sports car made like the beloved Japanese sports cars from the 70's and 80's (light weight, reliable, cheap, good on gas, fun). The camaro and mustang handily out perform the 370 and have more practicality (more seats, bigger trunks, cheaper to maintain, better tech).

No way! Audi looks like a girl's car.

Very good video. Kind of ironic I just bought a 370z about a month ago now my buddy is looking at a TT RS. we even stumbled upon the one in this video.

I'd maybe buy a TT... For the wife.

It'd prefer to see the comparison with a new TTS - it looks so much meaner than this old model. Pretty badass like the Z. The handling is supposed to be improved and it has similar 0-60 times as the Z. Of course the interior is far nicer but i'm not sure it's as exciting, raw or as involved as the Z. I did try a TT mk3 TSFI and it was quick and powerful especially if you got it tuned but it lacked the excitement, the sound and racing car feel of the Z. A bit more like a BMW than coupe than a true sports car perhaps. For about £2000 more I can get a TTS with the same mileage and year. Hmm

$15,000 difference between 370z nismo to ttrs... and only 10hp. Let's see, a twin turbo set-up with engine upgrades and exhaust for 370z will run you just about $15,000 and guess what, you can get 600hp and well over with that set-up. It's a no brainer.

The Audi is in another league, it is so much better.

No, you need to get GT-R

Get a 370z regular and twins turbo charged it. It will worth the most

Nice car and nice review!  I would Love it if the nismo had that same kind of visibility as this audi does.  Audi's are fantastic but over time, have too many reliability issues and are Very expensive to get repaired if the issue isn't under warranty.

Could I buy a regular 370Z & fix it up like a NISMO? I think that prob would be a better option for me if it's possible.

It's expensive asf

Bros FOURR Speed...if I wanted to but a used 370Z, what kind of mileage should I avoid like, what's the most miles & year model should I avoid? If that makes sense.

Mini GTR lol.

The Nismo basically is. Also affectionately called a "Baby GTR" too. So close to the driver experience and feel, at a third of the price... it's the car you want to own before going full GTR someday

I've raced a tt rs from first gear to end of second with my 15 g37 and it was a tie, it's way lighter too.

4 months ago

you not accepting the fact and trying to prove that your one is good. But the fact is DTRS is best.

You can't compare a car without a turbo to a car with one. Zs with twin or even single turbos do some pretty amazing things.

Did you ACTUALLY?!!!!!!

that engine is really something else, almost as much power as my rcf's v8

tt-rs "is basically an audi R8. Where my 370z is basically a mini GT-R."
WHAT have you been smoking? what does a fwd front engine car have in common with a rwd midengine. Or a rwd sports car have in common with a powerfull AWD dumptruck?

4 months ago

It's a fwd based car with a fwd based AWD system to the R8's rear biased AWD system

Necrosis3 so u said that a ttrs is fwd......thats wrong lol. Learn your cars.

You act like AWD systems are created equal.

You basically have a gtr without turbos boost that bad boy and you got yourself a monster. 370 is a true sports car.

Down the road I plan on having both of these in my garage 😁

A 370z is nothing like a GTR

4 months ago

You bought the right car. Z is a true drivers car at heart, a classic sports car, better handling, naturally aspirated (No Lag), and not as expensive as anything German. The TT is a great car too however, it's basically a classic Audi 5 cylinder turbo charged engine dropped into what seems like a go kart chassis. But if you put twin turbos on the Z you'll shit on most stock GTR's, so I'd definitely go with a Z and grab a Garret turbo kit.

4 months ago

Gonzalo Your smoking dope if you think that $800 tune will outperform 15k worth of mods on a Z. This coming from someone who has owned a big turbo Nissan and currently staring at a Stage 3 MK4 GLI in the driveway... A TT is s BADASS car but clearly way outside this guys price range. If you work on your own cars, are a enthusiast like you say, and own VW products like your say, then we both know the price difference between the Z and TT as far as mods is huge. Audi products are nothing more than glorified VWs, that shit is indisputable.

4 months ago

I owned a b8 Passat as my daily driver, and my track car which I still have (4 years strong now) is an MK1 Audi TT. My wallet is perfectly fine considering I have surprisingly enough brain cells to turn wrenches and do my own work, which I see that many people in the comment section who are self proclaimed "car enthusiasts" seem to lack.

Audi / VW parts are barely more expensive than any other import part in the states. Spark plugs, coils, gaskets, seals, etc. are all the same price.

If you want to discuss aftermarket products, then we are speaking about an entirely different subject which doesn't pertain to a majority of people, but I would concede that Audi aftermarket parts/mods are more expensive than most cars, but still vastly less than Merc, BMW, Porsche etc.

Lastly, You would need about $10-15k for a supercharger or turbo setup for the Z in order to match the what the TT RS could do with a $800 tune and simple intake and exhaust upgrades lol. It's no contest.

4 months ago

Gonzalo Trust me, if you've ever owned any VW/Audi product your wallet won't be in any rush to dive into another one. Speaking from experience.

4 months ago

Gonzalo Yea except you forgot one big ass factor to consider, price.... Give me a 370z and you take a TTRS. Then give us the same amount of money for mods. I guarantee the 370z I built would pull cars on that Audi. Besides I'm not paying $50-$60k for a car that's shaped like that "Green Egg" grill, foh.

4 months ago

And if you upgrade the Turbo on the TT RS you can shit on GTR's too? I'd rather get the TT RS, it's lighter, AWD, turbo, high tune-ability, and more appealing.

4 months ago

I own a 370z as a second car and I was seriously looking at the TTrs as a replacement since I just get bored (Z is an amazing car by the way). But - the Audi pushes and understeers tremendously on back roads. The Z is much more the real sports car experience - in my opinion closer to a Cayman S than any other car on the road.

4 months ago

A 370z is not a baby GTR, totally different cars. You could say the TTRS and the R8 share similarities, but not with the other two.

4 months ago

The 370z is still missing AWD which is a huge part of the dynamic difference, this is why I'll always prefer a 370 over a GTR.

4 months ago

Bros FOURR Speed Exactly my point but all the "Google racers" in the comment section telling me I'm wrong lol. The only advantage a GTR has over a 600hp TT 370z is AWD. It's a fairly even match up from a 50+ roll.

4 months ago

And since I've driven the Twin Turbo Z and GT-R, they are defining very similar

4 months ago

William Stewart Youve clearly never seen a Twin Turbo 370z. If you had, you'd realize why Nissan won't put turbos on the Z. That 3.7 liter engine will EASILY push 600hp with turbos. If you throw a proper twin turbo kit on a 370z and you have a RWD GTR.

Audio interior is nice when it's dead on the side of the road. Plus the depreciation for Audi is stupid crazy ..in 3yrs buy it for 75% less! And spend $30,000 to fix it.

I'll take the nissan...a bit better in reliability, but it wont still your retirement funds!

What are the rims/wheels on the TTRS??

4 months ago

Kyle Royal just google "ugliest wheels available for a TTRS"

4 months ago

Sorry bro, actually the Evo has always been considered more of a lil brother to the GTR, not the 370z & it's quite obvious why!

4 months ago

Mad Hatter "Or"? I think you mean a sedan "and" a hot hatch lol. The sedan would be direct competition for the STI. The hot hatch would satisfy a market that Mitsubishi never did and the market that the STI obviously forgot about while also be competition for the Focus RS, Golf R, and likes. Talk about making a splash. Nissan better go big.

4 months ago

as of now they are keeping the Mitsubishi brand name, i've heard rumors of Nissan making Mitsubishi their forefront brand of the EV segment but those are just rumors so far. I do agree that if they want to make a splash re-introducing a new following for the Mitsubishi brand then Nissan should bring a performance built sedan or hot hatch in the same tradition as the Evo but with all the modern goodies of suspension comfort that the Evo lacked but us enthusiasts ofcourse didn't mind at all.

4 months ago

Mad Hatter are they just taking over the company like a subsidiary or are they ending Mitsubishi all together. Hoping they kill the company altogether. I would LOVE to see the Evo be replaced by a midsize AWD rally car from Nissan. Like a 370z and Evo X had glorious drunk sex off race fuel and birth a fucking 4door AWD turbo 4 banger from hell 😩😩😩. My dick is officially hard... No homo.

4 months ago

Mad Hatter The only thing you just said that I even registered is that Nissan now owns Mitsubishi 😳😳😳. I missed that news. Holy fuck it's going down now. Nissan will be coming for that STI in the next year or two 😈😈😈. Omg you just blessed my fucking day with that news. #NissanGang

4 months ago

my point exactly, the RWD is a totally different drivetrain than AWD obviously, but just because Nissan makes both the 370z & the GTR doesn't mean peeps should categorize it as a lil brother to the GTR. The Evo is also a Japanese built & produced sports car that more closely resembles the performance of the GTR than a 370z ever will.
BTW, you prolly already are aware that Nissan now owns Mitsubishi

I own a 2011 Audi TTS, it is an amazing car, very reliable and very sporty for the price. I can't imagine how much better the TTRS could get!

4 months ago

its not a baby r8. don't lie to yourself. and the r8 doesn't come with a 2.5 liter 4 banger. nor do audis even come with a manual transmission. also, comparing an fr-s to the tt-rs is laughable. the fr-s is a $25k vehicle. where the tt is an overpriced rebadged volkswagon.

4 months ago

Serenity Now! The TTRS actually has an 5 cylinder engine, wich is one of the greatest engines ever made in my opinion. Yes i do own an ttrs and i truly love it. Even 4 cylinder engines can be sporty nowerdays as you can See with the porsche 718.
Obviously they dont sound as glorious as an naturaly aspiratet 5,2 Liter V10, but lets be honest, there is nothing that Sounds that great.
The 5 cylinder engines produces the best sound on The market for its Engine capacity, thats my opinion.

4 months ago

Serenity Now! Audi still offers manual transmission in some models smart guy. The 2018 A4 is being released in North America with a manual as well as the new TTRS. Know you facts buddy. And what fucking retard wouldn't know the R8 has a different engine than the RS(btw the R8 comes in V8 or V10plus smart guy). Lastly you consider Audi overpriced but your willing to pay $40k for a fucking STI? LOL. Your clearly new to this, go to a few car meets, run a few races, then get back to me poser. And I'm not a Audi fanboy by any means, I agree they are overpriced and don't offer enough manual transmission options but your talking out your ass bro.

4 months ago

If I don't know what I'm talking about, what engine does an R8 come with? I guarantee u its not a 4 cylinder engine. Audi no longer offers a manual transmission in North America (paddle shifters are not manual transmission). The only thing good about an Audi is the quattro, everything else offered by the company is overpriced and overrated. U must have either over paid for your Audi or I just hurt your feeling by insulting the car u love so much. Next time, save some money and buy a Subi.
