    See you all tomorrow then, chaps. Will be bringing my little man with me to his first car show. Potty training is in progress (for him, not me) - so wish me luck on the journey down... Good job it's a full wipe-clean leather interior and not alcantara...!

    What an excellent day, apologies for not mingling as had the wife with me but got plenty of pics which I will post when I sort/crop etc.

    Wide range of cars on all stands, really liked the new RS6 Avant which Northampton Audi had on show - counting up my 1ps as I write this :(

    Staying in Northampton this evening and driving back down to London tomorrow morning.

    well there was lots of AITP today, this was my first time at this show and second time on the ASN stand
    if I'm being honest I only chatted to a couple of people on the stand, seemed everyone had gone off to look else where, there was a good range of cars on ASN but there was multiple of the same car not cleaned as a centre piece around the tent area,
    looking at other stands there was much more community spirit (COV) we need things to do to get people meeting and knowing who they are chatting to on the forum

    was still a good show, look forward to more.

    thank you weather as well

    With a lot smaller amount of members you get a lot more closer bunch Glenn as your sitting in a less populated forum,at ASN we have such a broad spectrum that its quite difficult even if everyone wore nametags a lot would never have spoken (written) to them.
    Weather was very good to us.

    I would also like to again thank Adam for sorting me out with some ASN goodys.I also spoke to a few people from ASN stand so thanks to them but most people bomb bursted away from the stand not long after arrival,there was plenty to see I guess.

    Also well done to the girls from Coventry for providing the jump leads to someone not long after they arrived and hope they coat back from the first aid stand ok.

    I wondered past, but as I hadn't posted on here that I was going I didn't get to park near you guys. Quite pleased to see that my audi was the only one at the entire show that was in Venetian Violet lol.

    While there I went over to the Revo stand and decided to get my 2.0 TDI remapped then and there. :D

    So it seems like i missed a great day out :(

    Oh well, look forward to the next one, will have a look through the pics and thanks for the regular updates too Jo :)

    I did umm and arr on whether to come or not, but the little man was just so clingy, I felt bad letting him go, so stayed at home with him, then just after midday he perked up and seemed to be fine....so much so that he even said "dad can we go TGI's for lunch"!!!

    Just to see the smile on the face, we ended up going.....should have driven a bit further and come to the show!!
