Although I know both cars are not exactly competitors, I'm debating which one to purchase. I have a deposit on each car, and my decision has to be made soon! It's between a 2002 TT 180hp Quattro (which now comes in a new blue) and a blue IS300 5-speed. Both are a blast to drive, but each has its pros and cons. The TT is more expensive and has more luxury options, but it's German engineered and gains a lot on sex appeal than the IS. The IS may not turn as many heads (and be considered a rice rocket), but it's faster and cheaper. I need help!!!
