    What do A3 owners do?

    Havent done one of these threads in a while as far as I know, so what do the A3 owners do, to earn their car?

    An interesting thread to see if anyone on here works for the same company or is contracted to a similar company etc...

    Follow this set up by quoting the above person and editing your details and a few words about the job:


    Job Title: Graduate Plant Engineer

    Company: Bombardier Aerospace, Belfast

    Responsibilites: Production maintenance and management of factory projects including design and manufacture

    That is quite a coincidence - my gf got her car registration back from the DVA saying that she could not register her car in Northern Ireland since she had an English address :S

    She lives in warringstown, northern ireland but the stupid ejit read it as warrington even though the postcodes didnt match lol

    ah well!
