    Was wondering if people were up for an S3 meet at Audi Driver International?

    I've never been before, but looks like a good event.

    http://www.audidriverinternational.co.uk/

    Does anyone know if there is audi-sport.net stand organised already?????

    You can get on track for £90 for an AM or PM session or a FULL day at £162

    Think I'm going to go anyway as a few people I know are heading up.

    Anyone else????

    Come on you S3 owners.... add your name to the list and get your tickets booked.
    If there are enough of us we can see about getting a specific S3 track session...

    I'm hoping to get up there to give the S3 some serious stick around the track. Went a couple of years when it was pretty foggy but still great fun. Had the REVO map installed yesterday and been enjoying it all day. Next step is to fit Oli's old Milltek, which I'm picking up at the weekend, and a CAI of some sort. Hopefully it will all be fitted by then. It'll be good to meet up with you all and check out some of those mod's that's been carried out.

    For people who have done the track day before how much does castle combe muller a set of tyres?

    i have around 3-4mm left on my F1's all round and by the trackday i will have around 2.5 - 3mm left due to the mileage i will be doing from now till then, is it worth getting a set of new boots on it before the track day or afterwards?

    Didn't find last time to bad on my tyres. I had some almost dead P-zeros (2 - 2.5mm) and was planning to kill them on the track but they seemed to last ok. Went home still legal and managed a bit more running around on them.

    I'd keep your F1's on and finish them off on the track.

    Castle Combe have quite strict noise limits, so you won't be allowed out on track if you're too noisy ;) .

    I might be up for this as well, but it could be a step too far for 'er indoors, as I'll be at CC on 20th September for Rally Day and then the RR day on 4th Oct, so my brownie point total might be in the red by then :) !

    Robin - thanks for the Vag-Com - can you give me an idea of things that can be done with it... was wondering if it was possible to ut tail lights on with DRL's that sort of thing.
    Jonny - you should charge for passenger laps.....
    boggym - be good to meet you to mate - there's a great S3 community here!
    Phil - this would be the perfect day for you to try out that remap you're not going to buy :whistle2:

    Who's booking what for the trackday then?

    This is one of the better shows of the year for me, last year was great, Jojo from the 8L section organised a stand last year and a good few of us went-if you scan back through the events section there are loads of pics:thumbsup: I have got shot of my car but will still go but have to sneak in and park in a quiet corner somewhere lol:whistle2:
    Dont think its very hard on tyres, although I only did one session last year, your tyres should be fine though Robin.:cool:
    Will be good to see some newer stuff on a stand this year,only mine & one other 8P on our stand last.
    See you all there!!!:footy:

    Just off the top of my head these are the things i have done on mine.

    1. Lighting for the dials are always on regardless of side/head lights.
    2. One click auto windows - when the windows are open and you press the key fob and hold it down as soon as the windows start to close you can let go of the button and they will fully close.
    3. Rear lights match the DRL's so they are always on if you have DRL's switched on.
    4. Footwell/Warning/Puddle light activation.
    5. Home coming lights activated.
    6. Rear wiper drip wipe - after you use the rear washer jet the wiper comes on about 10 seconds afterwards to clean up any drips.
    7. One click on the keyfob opens all locks as i hate having to do the double click

    I really want a load of bits doing to mine via vag-com, do you think that on the day someone would be able to help me, and possibly some others out?

    I dont mind paying for your time, just nice to have your car just how you like it, this is the next step really..

    Alternatively, I have access to a Vag com lead, but dont know how to do the programming for these modifications, any chance you could steer me in the right direction?

    Really want to do the steering weight mod too, mine feels super light!!

    Thanks

    You're a legend Robin - appreciated!
    Will sort you out with some beer money!

    From your list, I like:

    1. Lighting for the dials are always on regardless of side/head lights.
    2. One click auto windows - when the windows are open and you press the key fob and hold it down as soon as the windows start to close you can let go of the button and they will fully close.
    3. Rear lights match the DRL's so they are always on if you have DRL's switched on.
    4. Footwell/Warning/Puddle light activation. I HAVE THE LIGHT PACK - WILL THIS THEREFORE ALREADY BE ACTIVITED?
    5. Home coming lights activated. - HOW DOES THIS WORK?
    6. Rear wiper drip wipe - after you use the rear washer jet the wiper comes on about 10 seconds afterwards to clean up any drips.

    Also, as per JonnyC would be interested in weighting up the steering - I thought this function was unavailble on 2007MY cars though????

    Erm you should have the puddle lights etc already then, do you have lights underneath your doors?

    The home coming lights is the function where the lights come on when you unlock your car and also comes on when you lock your car and then go out after a certain time, mien is set for 30seconds, the mod just need aa earth cable from the car loom connectors earthing to an earth point after the function has been switched on with vagcom.
