    I bought an Audi TT two months ago, and I´m quite happy with it, it´s german, pretty fast and funny to drive. The problem is, I´m starting to have my doubts about the car, all women that see it say they love it, and they would love to buy one like mine. I´m starting to feel quite uncomfortable when I drive the TT, and I´m seriously considering to trade it before it starts loosing value. What do you think... Is it gay? Should I sell it? Should I keep it? Please, give me some advice! Here are a few pictures of a TT pretty similar to mine: [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Yes and No.

    Old Audi TT in convertible with automatic transmission? Yes
    New Audi TT-S in Coupe with Manual? No.

    Place your car in a range between those and you'll have your answer.

    I had a Cayman for a couple years and sometime wondered about that. Then I decided I didn't give a f@#k what others thought and enjoyed the hell out of it! Do you enjoy it? If yes, then who cares about what others think?

    Eh...IMO, if a car was born gay, no future iteration of said car can be straight. Having said that, if you like it, drive it - just don't get your panties in a bunch if other guys heckle you about driving a girl's car. BTW, the Cayman is not gay.

    Watch what it does at stoplights. If you see it flirt with a VW Cabriolet, it is straight. If you see it come on to a Hummer, it is gay.

    Old version gay, new version not so much. I'd drive it. I'd also drive a Cayman [not gay]. It was fun as hell when I tested it.

    You have to sell it.

    If you're already falling out of love with it, imagine what you're gonna feel like in 2 years with £15,000 knocked off the resale value.

    On purchases like cars, I always have to be 110% that I like it, otherwise I'll just resent the car and feel bitter about the depreciation.

    Having said that, I regularly borrow my mothers white TTS and have yet to feel gay driving it.

    I think the white doesn't help.
    If it was metallic or navy blue, it would give off a very different vibe.

    Some are designed with gender preferences/orietations in mind, some have it thrust upon them.

    ^ This.

    White in an Audi has been very over trendy for a while, and thus has a hairdresser vibe.

    The same thing happened with the old TT, except it was silver - they are both everywhere.

    Black or navy blue would be much better. If you like the car a lot though keep it - by all accounts the TT is so popular because it's a pretty great car.

    In that rough price range (depending on the TT model) an older Cayman would be very superb. Just be sure to buy black or navy [​IMG]

    +1. I can't see myself buying anything but black for my next car (my last 2 have been black as well). Navy blue comes second though.

    Black looks superb with just a bit of detailing - a monthly good wax like Collinite 476 and the car looks twice as good as the same car in most other colours.
