Audi TT

Ever since its launch, the TT has been a runaway success amongst style-conscious buyers and the convertible version added yet another string to its talented bow. With a premium image, £3000 isn’t much to spend for such a good looking package and you’ll find a good choice of 2000/2001 examples, although mileage is likely to be on the high side.

Most are fitted with the 228PS 1.8-litre motor which provides ample performance, while the quattro four-wheel drive system adds useful all-weather security. It’s a solid rather than exciting handler though, and earlier cars suffered from niggling reliability problems so you’ll need to check everything works.
