    New Member - Familiar Car!

    Hi guys (and gals),

    Just thought I'd touch base and submit my first post on the forum.

    I'm now the happy [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/woohoo.gif[/img] owner of an A3 3.2 V6 that was owned (up until last Friday) by the not so happy StephV6 (who was sad to see his car go). [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

    I had a Honda S2000 - which was a great car to drive...if not a little frantic. I owned it for nearly 3 years and loved it. However, I'm doing more mileage than I was and the Honda isn't the most ideal long-distance car. So I started looking for something equally as quick, but a bit more practical and refined. The A3 seemed ideal and after driving one, I thought it was a top notch motor!

    After a few weeks of looking, I stumbled upon Steph's on this forum and went to see it, loved it, and here I am now!

    Anyway, just thought I'd say 'hi' and look forward to being a part of the audi-sport forum (and not just a 'lurker').

    Cheers!

    Re: New Member - Familiar Car!

    Thanks for the welcome notes [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif[/img]

    Come to think of it - what are any of us doing on this forum on Valentines night. Anyone would think we were sad lonely geeks. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/bang.gif[/img]

    Took your advise Jojo and took it out for a spin (well...how could I resist?!). Though don't think the girlfriend would be too happy if I was out on the pull with it. Then again... [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/10_1_114.gif[/img]

    Re: New Member - Familiar Car!

    I would've been out with her, but she had to fly off to the America...for her appraisal!! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]

    Had to celebrate valentine's on Sunday night instead

    Never mind - it gave me a chance to enjoy the car without her telling me to slow down or be careful [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/yes.gif[/img]

    So the GF is in America, and that leaves you with the 3.2 V6 [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/1luvu.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/yes.gif[/img]

    Bad move, eh? Do you know if GF ver 1.0 comes with an on/off switch? Would be very useful if it did! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

    You should contact Audi. It sounds like there's a problem with your GF option (I heard it's a common problem).

    Maybe a good service will sort it out!

    Re: New Member - Familiar Car!

    Ha ha haa, that's funny... well, they did suggest installing the software "bit-of-fluff-on-the-side mach 1" into the cars computer, but I soon found that this is seriously incompatible with GF version 1, so quickly had to uninstall it again [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh_2.gif[/img]
