    New member from Aberdeen?

    Just saw that the Dolphin grey 02-plate S3 that was for sale beside my work (Murison's @ BoD had it) has been cleaned for collection by its lucky new owner - just wondered if said owner has been on here? An existing member, or maybe a new face?

    Welcome, either way. I would say the club is exclusive, but up here I'm not sure it is... I see 2 or 3 8L S3 a day now.

    Yeah, all the Porsche boys have moved back down to RSs. They seem to be everywhere too - I thought they were meant to be limited run?

    I'm ND51 - usually try to wave if I see an S3, but the other drivers never seem to notice.

    MG owners are great for waving back! Ok, most of them are pensioners (predictably) but there is another dude around my age in the area who has one of these;

    and he always waves. Once he stopped to help me when my exhaust had been ripped off by a nasty pothole.
    It's good when there's a sense of comradery within a group of folk with a similar interest.

    Hey guys, it was I who bought the dolphin 02!

    Thanks for the warm welcome - i've already been on asking questions about fault codes so i'm in no doubt i'll be asking heaps of questions. First S3 so very excited!

    I'm also in Abz (live in BOD too) if i spot an S3 driver and normally wait to see if they wave as if you wave first you tend to get the 'ehh why you waving at me' look.. reg end HVG if you spot me

    Welcome Iain, these folks are fairly helpful, cant think of anything i have asked and not had answered yet!

    I won't lie, was tempted to look into getting it myself. I wanted a Dolphin Grey when looking for my car, but there just weren't any for sale. Although, having said that, if you're on asking about fault codes already then maybe I dodged a bullet there (jk)!

    Don't worry, you can't have found one with more problems than my own! Looked nice when I was having a snoop the other week, could do with some 18"s though, haha.

    I've only had mine a little over a year, and I took it to Audi in Altens for the service (wanted at least one thorough check over of the car). It wasn't cheap, but at least I got a list of things to get sorted. AW Autotech was the last garage I used for getting my DP replaced, wasn't cheap either but a lot better than dealer rates. Don't go to Bavaria, on Hutcheon St. Had a few mates go there and not have a great experience.

    To be fair to Bavaria, they know their stuff.. They just stick their noses up when they get busy with porkers etc.. I get my mate to do it who owns a garage beside Pitodrie, much cheaper than Audi and does the same job

    Yeah, took them 3 weeks to order a radiator for a 3-series coupe, and they ordered the wrong one. Ended up taking a month to do a few days' work. Where abouts near Pittodrie, because AW is down that way to (just across from the new Uni "sports village")? There's a place on Forest Avenue Lane that do mostly mods and they know a VW tech that does "homers" for a lot of their usual clients and mates.

    AW Autotech all the way - i've taken both my Audis there and they're very good, not the cheapest but very good. Martin there knows his stuff.
    Took my old A4 to Bavaria Auto Werk and they did a good job but jesus christ was it expensive! I definately got looked down upon when I had to split the bill over two credit cards!

    Just think how many there'd be if everyone is Aberdeen was on here! I know (of) at least two other guys who aren't, and must have seen close to a million more S3s in the past year. And that's not counting the 8P guys either.

    I normally just raise a couple fingers with my hand still on the steering wheel to wave to someone.. Could be misconstrued as tapping to the beat of a song haha.

    KB, i think i've came across your car a couple of times in the past.. Has it been well looked after?
