First off, the new front fascia is in line with the encompassing design philosophy at Audi. The headlight housing flows smoothly into the hoodline, while the front grill and bumper are more angular and aggressive. High intensity discharge lamps, combined with the driving lights built into the chin offer an excellent and safe night time driving experience.
The top down experience was great. Wind buffeting is kept at a minimum with the powered rear wind screen. I took the TT on a long trip to Northern California to cover Hot Import Nights San Mateo . With the seat warmers turned on and side windows raised, the 50 degree morning weather was more than bearable. And of course, as the temp rose throughout the day, top down motoring was the theme of the day. Raising and lowering the top was a simple as pressing a single button, with the operation taking no more than 20 seconds. And if you happen to decide to lower or raise the top while on the road, the TT allows you to do so as long as the speedo reads less than 17mph.
