    Yeah, Ill be going from Aberdeen down to Harthill, then across to Braehead. Don't think we've arranged a time yet, and looking less likely like I'll get home each day. :sign_unfair:

    Arbroath? I'm just up in Friockheim, so not very far.

    Unfortunately I wont have an Audi anymore, threw the black edition back at Audi due to the poor fuel consumption, then went and bought a BMW 335d today. Not really any better on the fuel, but no worse.

    I would guess Glasgow Audi wont want a (near) top of the range BMW there to show up the fuel economy of their cars, lol. Was looking forward to this too, if I was gonna be allowed.

    You go in the main entrance, turn right along the side of the building just follow the road round the back, it is pretty near the exit back on to the motorway. :) x

    Hi all, havnt been terribly active here since joining, but found this and if I can get along will try, I tend to frequent the A8Parts forum mostly and there are another couple of S8 owners on there, will see if they will come too, we all attended the Crieff meet earlier this year and had a good time

    The more the merrier Brian. For all those that are coming from Edinburgh side myself and Danny will be in Harthill Services between 1030 and 1100. Thats enough time for a quick brew and wash of the car and then we will convoy from there to Braehead. I wil be taking afew detailing products to make her shine and also VCDS if anyone requires it. See you all Sunday......cant wait.

    Just been told there's been more delays, wont' be mobbing until tomorrow. 95% sure I'll be either stuck out here, or at the very closest on the train to Helsinki at 12 on Sunday.

    Thanks to all those members that attended the meet at Braehead. Weather stayed good and there was quite a good turn-out. The bacon butties were delicious albeit taking 20 mins to make. Great venue aswell and all the staff knew who we were. Looking forward to the next one.
