    Newbie here ;)

    Hi guys, Sib here in very snowy Abingdon, Oxfordshire. I am currently driving a Passat 1.8 T on 19's and have a couple mates with Audi's; 1 is a S3 the other a 1.8T. Am very keen on cars and enjoy these forums as i spend 12 hours a day for 3 days a week sat in front of a computer so have plenty of time to use them Will post some pictures up of my car soon

    cheers guys

    Sib

    to be honest i'm not sure haha i think its is just a de-badged grill from fleebay and then he put the 'S' badge on it

    glad you like the wheels they are currently sat in my garage at home gathering dust waiting for my redundancy money to come through so i can get them refurbed and change the colour, will hopefully be next month

    Yeah going to Ultimate Dubs. Our club, Dub Club Oxford, have a big convoy going down so should be really good. Yeah am going to the Gaydon thing too cause that sounds like it is going to be massive!! Getting my wheels done in the next few weeks too so they should be on for the Gaydon one. I will get some pics up with the new wheels on as soon as i have them done to see what everyone thinks

    me and my mate got pretty bad whiplash but other than that not too bad. Basically the traffic slowed down quickly, i managed to stop without hitting anyone looked in my rear view mirror and saw a red astra hurtling towards us and the innevitable happened lol

    nah it happened the friday before which proper sucks lol

    from the pictures i have been showing people they are all saying it is a write off because the chassis looks like it could be damaged so am looking for something new now. Maybe an A4 or another passat
