    Whooo Hooo! Finally Got one!!

    Yippee,

    After 3 months of looking, finally got my grubby little mitts on a 2002/51 AMK 8L S3 this evening!! 58k, pretty well mint and standard.

    Nearly did not have it very long, when a W**ker in an X5 pulled out from behind a lorry on the A34 with me in his blind spot. Would'nt mind but he didn't even acknowledge. Typical X5 owner!! I was'nt even doing any sort of illegal speeds either.

    Great community on the forum and looking forward to helping/being helped now I've got her...

    Cheers,
    Alistair

    (Talking quietly so as not to wake her up)

    Pretty boring to start with:

    Cruise control next week.
    Probably work on the ICE first, and move onto the oily bits once I get used to her.

    Cheers,
    Alistair

    Don't worry, I promise it won't EVER be on on a fun road!!!!!
