If we have wifi in our hotel I'll start a thread and upload a few pics.

Good man, that's what we want to see. I assume prawn will be making a thread as well?
Luckily, there will be no arguing over the sun beds!
Hello all, have fun 'Silver Fox'
Not feeling particularly great today, coming down with some sh!t methinks, but I managed to get my S3 out the garage and fire the beast up!
What was up with it then Jo?
Ahahahahahahahhaha it hurts my eyes - AutoMotive Couture : AutoMotive Couture - Audi TT 8N
Blown fuel pump fuse!
that looks way better than a normal one just needs to be white
So you couldn't hear the pump when you opened the drivers door?
right off home bye bye lads
Nope, thought it was the fuel pump, bit it's apparently the Haldex doing it's thing on startup.
Didn't realise the haldex made a noise on start up. You learn something new everyday
Sounds like a fuel pump.
OMG this is amazing -
Just seen this thread, interesting and funny
Me too, a rare stray away from the A3/S3 section has revealed people have a life outside of the 8L platform!
Welcome to the party pal
Christ man the 8L section is like a spaz zone sometimes. We all live in here now.
I think I might sig that, if you don't mind. Although, it is more like a creche that a spaz zone.
Agreed though, I'll be dropping in here from now on. I'll have a Directors please.
Westy, how do you know my name and where do I know you from? You dropped the J bomb the other day and I felt terrible for not knowing who you were
I just know your name from here mate. We exchanged a few PM a few months back when I was after S4 wheels and you were trying to sell your mrs' wheels without her knowing lol.
How come you're not coming to the ring with us tomorrow?
westy, good luck to all of you and be safe!
Everyone knows klappe is Jardo
Your known around here
If you've got a spare seat I'll come to the ring with you? Prawn and I are bum buddies but his dad is going, Andy P and I are bum buddies but his dad is going, Spunky and I were meant to be going together last year but he isn't going this year. This year I didn't think I'd be able to get the time off. But I got fired two weeks ago and a cheque for 3K, I'd go tomorrow if there was a space.
She did know, she was trying to make me look like a noob because she doesn't want me to have friends.
btw be safe out there West!
You're scaring me now...
If you want to see who this Jardo character actually is and you don't mind the odd racist/fascist/anti-semitic joke then add away - Jardo Mardell | Facebook
So Jardo I saw in your other post your out of work? What happened?
Massive fail at work basically.
Friend of mine dropped his forks in for a service, I gave them to the workshop and said to do them at mates rates.
Friend comes in to pick them up so I got them from the workshop, asked the mechanic if anything was wrong and he said no they just had a strip, re-seal and new fluid. I charged the customer an hours labor (£20) and off he went. Anyway, boss asks me what I charged him a couple of hours later and I said I wasn't sure exactly how much but it was whatever the job was worth. We pulled the ticket off the board and it had been two hours not one. So we looked through the till looking for a receipt for £40 and couldn't find one. So I honestly thought I hadn't charged him so I apologised and said I would pay the price of the service so it didn't look bad on the company.
That wasn't good enough for them and they took me upstairs and fired me there and then on the spot, which was a bit strange seeing as I ran their website, managed their eBay retail outlet, was THE senior salesman and controlled the stock and constantly their best salesman as well as knowing my trade inside out. They asked me to leave my phone there because they wanted to phone the customer to see if I was telling the truth, trying to be reasonable and keep my job I left my phone and went home. I had never had a verbal or written warning, and had been working there 18 months. I had access to over £20,000 which was controlled solely by me on the works Paypal account from that months eBay sales and had access to all work bank accounts and access to the company cards to pay for stock. So god knows why they thought I'd try something over £20 to a friend who earns 80K+ as a retained gas man for Wales & West!
Went to my girlfriends work to tell her the bad news and she said she already knew, she had gotten a call from my friend to say that I had undercharged him and he had popped back to work to pay the rest of the bill.
Went in the next morning, they had a go at me and said they weren't sure and that it was black and white to them. To which I argued that black and white = grey and it HAD to be investigated legally before I was dismissed but they weren't having it.
Anyway, they clearly know they ****ed up massively because they gave me a cheque for a grand this morning which is £800 more than they owed me! They'll be getting a letter from my solicitor within the next week or so, needless to say.
**** jardo, that sucks!
Never know they might miss you and ask for you back... But I expect there's a better job around the corner.
Yer you lads be careful out there, I came back with a wound when I last went. Which is always an interesting story to tell but it cost me fair. I would have gone on this trip but got a better trip going down Spain on bikes, so couldn't do both
Too right James!
I'll be going to the ring next time, you seen my new motor? Audi : Audi A3 1.8T 20v K03S AGU 230BHP Cheap Performance
That is basically prawns car... Is it an asn members car?
yeah il be going next time dude, both times I went it was very fun!
Sorry to hear, thats f$%ked up. What are your plans
It is basically Prawns car...
Those pictures are from 2008 when Pierre owned it, then it got sold to Liam who made it a bit of a beast after he saw Prawns car in Basingstoke and messaged Prawn on here saying he had seen a car and was it his. Prawn messaged him back saying was *this* (a pic of Prawns car) the car you saw in Basingstoke, and was *this* (Pierres car) the car you are looking at buying? Plunky bought it and spent all the money on it and made it a beast and came into our circle of Prawn wannabe friends and now I've got it. It's quicker than Prawns though
I am SO interesting in how Andy gets on this year with the Volvo. My money is on it absolutely destroying the A3 but breaking massively.
Have you seen it?
My work plans are working for Everest Home Improvements as a regional sales rep, OTE of 36K if you are willing to put the hours with many people who are hungry for it earning in excess of 80K. It's free lance work, so they train you and all you have to do is report to the area manager on a daily basis with your coming and goings and any sales or appointments you have made and he makes sure you get paid. If you want to stay in bed the next day you make sure you haven't made any booking for yourself and stay in bed. Ideal! Commission based only, but other salesmen (who's best intentions are to NOT have another member of sales!) in the area are saying that 40K is easily obtainable for a newbie and they will happily profit share their commission because all of the sales figures and bonuses are regional.
Oh right, yeah I saw it when it was pierres, was proper tidy then! He polished it everyday with his jizz... But we planted loads of stones in the air vents lol, he said it never stopped rattling lol.
Yeah seen andys Volvo on bookface, looks like a beast.
