Weirdly no. I'm a bit of a sucker with car mags and websites with spy shots (ooooh eer!) and seen nothing so far.....can't be far off. TT bit ancient inside now.

I think they will do that special lightweight edition (looks a bit mad compared to the standard TT) and then release a brand new TT in 2015 or so. I've seen some mock ups of what it may look like, sort of had the new R8 style lights.

Whats you guys thoughts on flipping new models these days?

When i bought my TT in 2002 there was a 8 month waiting list, so i used it for nearly a year and only lost £800. I sold it back to an audi dealer who then probably sold it for new price.

Im thinking possibly buy a S3, flip it, RS3 the same. Basically use it for a few months then sell at nearly no loss apart from a few PCP payments.

Yep did this on current MINI John Cooper Works in 2009. Went first on order books (think initially was limited to 250 orders across UK for rest of the year). Sold it early 2010 for £900 loss. Not bad! I had A LOT of fun in it during the time also :twisted:

Hopefully the new S3. I fell in love after seeing a white one at Goodwood the other day!
