Hi, guys :
I am looking for a TT right now. any suggestion which one will be better? 180 or 225? first of all, i wanna save money. second, the money that i save i wanna get my computer chipped.

search the TT forum archives for the differences, as they have been listed ad nauseum to questions similar to yours in the past.

i, myself, have a 180 and i love it (APR chipped). i've never driven a 225, so i can't comment on them. read what's already been written and post back if you have any specific questions. happy hunting...

personally, if I had to do it again, I'd get a 180 quattro and go apr stage III.

225's can be pretty fast with chip and bolt ons

if you don't want to mod, get the 3.2

Buy a 225. My dad got an 01 and it really goes for stock + GIAC X chip. K03s are a hassle, I have them in my A6 and would sooner be rid of them.

go 225 just for the quattro feature.

The 180HP Quattro is the way to go if you can find one. They are a bit more "mod-friendly" then the 225. Good luck!

i drive a TT225 and I love it. If i have to do it again, i'll still pick the 225. :)

Patience is the key... I spent a few months perusing the net for the perfect TT.

Ended up getting a 2000 180FWD with 50k miles PERFECT waaaaaaay below the market price since the guy was leaving the country. Got lucky since I was being so picky.
