Looking for sporty but not too uncomfortable coupe - any ideas?

Looking for sporty but not too uncomfortable coupe. Would you recommend 2011 Audi TT Mk2 with EA888 engine (would specify Sport Quattro) or would you go for 2008/9 TTS with EA113 engine? I mostly drive 5-15 miles trips on A+B roads, on warm summer days I drive my Mk1 Eunos Roadster. I like the idea of 4WD as the roads around us are often wet and greasy. You rate Mk2 TT as a 5 star car but there is a lot of chatter about oil useage in 2.0TFSI engines. Should I consider anything else?

You want the manifold in head EA888 engine from 2014 that overcomes these problems, not the earlier one. The EA113 is belt cam, so £600 every 4 years. You're right that the Mk II TT should lose a star due to the coking up and oil consumption problems.
