      my car got here today, very disappointed, thinking about returning it. Owner described normal wear but didnt mention bent tail pipe and damaged rear area around tail pipe, cracked windshield, lots of chips, and then the engine sounds lke crap and the accelerationis jerky,and clutch or transmission doesnt go into third witout a fight and rear squeaking like a kids old tricycle wheel under 20 mph. Acceleration is not very good and i think it is due to an engine issue by the sound of it. And it sounds like lifters are bad or ae they just that loud?
      Taking it to the delership to get it checked out but i am very bummed, was lookingforward to this and i feel like i got a little screwed .

      I would run away from that car. Seems like it has had a very rough life in a short amount of time. No pre-purchase inspection or pictures with these issues?

      After contacting the seller about the problems he has graciously said he would buy it back and pay for the shipping both to me and to get it back. A very nice man and a generous offer so I am going t accept it.
      It is a beautiful car and I am sure that when i find the right one I will enjoy it
      Anyone know of a TT RS for sale? Back to square one.

      I don't understand how he didn't disclose those problems in the first place. And I would think the aesthetic damage you would see in the pics. At least he's taking it back.

      WTF?! How the hell can someone beat on a car so much in such a short amount of time? I'm amazed he agreed to take it back and pay for shipping. That's nothing short of a miracle. Hopefully you can find another for sale. Or just place your order for a 2013 model.

      This. More explanation please. If we're talking a used TT-RS which I think we are, it can't have that many miles on it since they've been on our shores less than a year. How did it get so beat up? And the mechanical issues you describe, it's under warranty so why weren't they just addressed at a dealer? Something sounds really fishy about the whole thing.
      Order a new one. A quick glance on Autotrader this morning shows 6 new ones and one Certified Pre-Owned one for sale around the country. The 2012's are definitely dwindling.

      Agreed. Doesn't make any sense.

      Yes it was used and I guess he took delivery in November according to the paperwork. It was driven in New York citry which I guess can be somewhat brutal on the car. The owner was very cool about it and there was no problem with him taking itback. I diod not want to have the headaches of having to get it all done myself warranty or not. Some work would have been warranty but other parts would not. he offered to pay for the repairs and I could have kept it but again I did not want the headaches and it is somwething that would have made me nuts. i am a bit ocd aboutr my car care and the paintwork so the scratches would have made me insane.
      I am loook ing for a white 2012 now and checking the deaerships for ones that have allocations in production that are not spoken for. I found a couplwe but they cant change the color at this point however if anyone is looking for a Black TTRS, i know a dealer that has one in production and it has already been painted so it is further along.
      If anyone knows of a dealership that has a car in production, thatcan be changed or if it is white already, please let me know. I am thinking about waiting and getting a 2013 but when would those start being deleiverd? Probably 10-12 months or so and I havbe no wheels.

      Sh*t, enough said. Owing a sports car in NYC is the kiss of death.

      Glad he took it back.

      Yeah and he was so cool about it too. I would love to have the car but I know it would make me nuts so I am still looking. Why do the dealers have every color but the one i want in thier showrooms right now. I can get 3 black, 2 red, 1 blue and even a suzuka grey all of them ready to go, but no white.

      The gods are smiling on me(I think). I may have found a TT RS, with Tech, titanium heated seats and in WHITE!
      Private party with 4800 miles. Going to have it inspected this time. Anyone know of any inspection peopl in the Detroit Toledo area? Any questions I should ask about the car other than the usual condition accidents and mechanical issues?

      Should have moved to Australia when I was going to....but 16 years ago I didnt know you would get the good seats.
