Congrats. I bought mine a couple of months ago and I couldn't be happier.

Would love to hear your comparison/impressions of the TTRS vs the 1M. My brother just ordered one (monza silver, tech, spoiler delete). He is expecting it in July. Should be interesting sibling rivalry.

Yea, would love to hear a comparison between the m1 and ttrs as well. I had planned to order a 2013, but seriously considering the m1 for bang for the buck.

I went from a 335d BMW and have had 3 TTRSs and an RS3 as both myself and the mrs love the sound f the Audi 5 pot..

The build quality of the 1M is light years ahead of the Audis, and I never thought I'd say it, but I prefer the rumble from the 1M over the Audi too.

I've not driven the 1M much as its been raining nice I bought it, so do miss the grip f the Quattro system, but the unpredictability of the 1M guarantees to put a smile one your face

Rs3 with the DSG was boring..

Manual TTRS is great, I think the TTRS is slightly quicker lower in the rev range, but once the 1M gets going its a different subject. I think a lot of it is down to the extra traction of the Quattro.
