2008 Audi TT 3.2 Quattro Roadster – Road Test

If you’ve already read my review on the 2008 TT coupe, you’ll know how much I LOVE that car -it’s unbelievable. I strongly advise you to read that review before proceeding any further, because the Roadster is not as spectacular as the coupe. Naturally, you’d think that a convertible would be more desirable than a coupe any day, and in most cases, I’d agree – but I’d be remiss if I didn’t explain the one major fault with the Roadster at this point. It’s down to one thing -the 3.2 litre V-6 engine. It’s a dog. Let me elaborate. Having fallen in love with the coupe, I was excited about driving the Roadster the very next week. If the 4-cylinder engine was spectacular, then logic dictates that a larger and more powerful V-6 would be icing on the cake. Pulling into the parking lot, I spot the Roadster right away -it’s a silver/gold colour with a hint of beige or green -depending on the sunlight, quite unique looking.

2006 Mazda RX-8 GT – Road Test

I looked for it, but I couldn’t find it, Surely there has to be one! No Warning from the Surgeon General ??!! OK. I’ll do it – WARNING – If you suffer from high blood pressure stay away from this car!! If you’re susceptible to heart palpitations – stay away! If you are pregnant and don’t want you’re child to grow up to be a race car driver – stay away!! If you have a history of high cholesterol – don’t even think about asking for a test drive! Now that we’ve got that out of the way.. How does it drive? It’s all right. Nothin’ special … if you drive fighter jets or racecars for a living! For the rest of us it’s the closest we’ll ever get to driving a race car on the street!
