    Spotted this morning in Cambridgeshire driving towards Royston. Doing 50mph+ in 30 zones, overtaking on blind bends, overtaking round traffic islands!

    How many 1.8tfsi owners are actually on here, they seem almost none existent.

    I took my 1.8T badges of mine, just so I could give all the diesel boys a shock at the lights, caught a E60 530d out the other day, we were neck and neck up to naughty speeds.

    Sprint blue S3 all smashed up in Grantham at the McDonald's junction. Private S3 plate too, my friend has seen this and thought it was me. Front is apparently in bad shape, hope whoever it is isn't hurt and it isn't someone on here's pride and joy.

    59 plate sprint blue S3 heading south on the A1 just north of Retford.

    Also saw a white Black edition S3 in Leeds city centre yesterday, I think it was a 12 plate.
