    B5s at AITP

    Another show is looming (In a positive, OOOOO can't wait sort of looming) round the corner.

    We had a good show of B5s at Inters, there was 7, I think.
    Me, Aragorn, Oldskool and his 2, Byzan's Estate, Der-Tech and Grant in his S4.

    If you not been before I would recommend.
    £5 per car, it don't matter how many people you got in your car cause you are only paying for the car.
    Its the only Audi show in the UK, good for adults and kids.
    So bring the family, give the wife and kids some money, point them in the direction of the rides and enjoy the cars.

    Who's going?

    Might as well see if we can get a little B5 swap shop going on as well.
    Any one got any thing B5 for sale or needed?
    Good time to do it, no fannying around with postage.

    Double the fuel if i bring both though, its ~350miles so we're talking about 65quids worth of petrol to drive down there and back, an additional £65 is probably a bit much?

    I thought you were further away? more like 500miles? Even if you do 50mpg the whole way, its not that much different?

    260 miles one way.
    Bit of a trek but its worth it I think.

    I did Inters and back on about half to quarter of a tank I think.
    So not to bad.

    yeh so 520miles vs my 360.

    520miles at 50mpg is about 47 Litres of fuel
    360miles at 32mpg is about 51 Litres of fuel

    Cost per litre is roughly the same for super unleaded vs derv too, so it cant be that much cheaper for you!

    Not cheap at all.
    Most show weekends are allot of money for me but mainly cause of the travel.

    Its not like there will ever be a show that ASN will go down town my way and there is only ever 3 a year. so its not that bad really.
