I've been lurking around for a good couple of months now and finally decided to join and post.
My name's András. I'm 32, from Hungary and a happy owner of a lovely soot chucker, a 2001/11 A3 8L 130bhp 5 dr with aut. gearshift.
I love every part of it(even the bugs) and have to say I've already solved some problems based on advice found on your forums. So cheers for that.
I plan to stick around, read and contribute and promise to post some photos of the ride if you're interested.
