    Not to put you guys off, but I spoke to someone last week who had his car sent in, he ended up getting the majority of the car sprayed and even then it wasnt right, finally Audi ended up getting 3M in to see what the issue was as there was some sort of reaction issue that kept messing the paint up after a few days.

    But on a positive note, Tims getting the drinks in (hopefully its Stella???) Im not camping, but will expect a nice chilled can upon my arrival on Sunday :) - Only messing mate

    More concerned about the mess my interior will be in when I get her back... I had done a full detail over the weekend before taking her done.... was spotless and silver alcantara is not exactly wipe clean...

    I might show mine a sponge before coming up.... If it's lucky that is.

    LOL. I've GOT to paint my wheels before coming, one still bears the brunt of being crashed into. Sadly 2 new tyres on the back necessary VERY soon too.

    Ive got the wifeys b'day that week, and i said im going to take a few days off, the look of excitement on her face was great, coz she then said, so what you got planned, where are we going, what are we doing?????

    My response didnt go down too well when I said, nothing, im just going to spend a few days tidying the car up ready for the show!!!

    Guess i'll have to fit something in somewhere along the lines hey!!

    okies message from the main event thread :)


    From: Drivebyshooters (event organiser)

    Audis in the Park LESS THAN 3 WEEKS TO GO!!!

    Yes thats right, less than 3 weeks to go before the BIGGEST Audi ONLY event on the calendar!
    I'm sure some of you are busy rushing around to get your cars all sorted for the big day!
    Just thought I would take this time to keep you all updated and to remind you of things you may have forgotten.
    ...
    FIRST THINGS FIRST!!
    CLOSING DATE FOR ADVANCED TICKETS IS SATURDAY 31ST JULY!!!!!...if you
    haven't ordered your tickets by then, you will have to purchase them on
    the day for £6.00.

    SECONDLY!!
    PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE stop sending me your camping enquiries! I am STILL being inundated with camp site booking enquiries.
    Just so everyone is aware...again....PLEASE BOOK YOUR CAMP SITE PITCH
    DIRECTLY WITH WICKSTEED PARK.......for more information on camping,
    please follow this link: http://www.wicksteedpark.co.uk/camping.aspx

    SHOW AND SHINE
    This year the Show & Shine Competition wil be a "TURN UP ON THE DAY" entry system.
    Simply mention to the gate staff that you wish to enter the S & S
    competition and they will give you a entry form to complete. Fill in
    the form and hand it to me (Calvin).... (Don't worry if you don't know
    who Calvin is, Someone will!!)....short bloke that'll probably be
    collapsed in the field through exhaustion...lol

    SATURDAY CAMPING/BBQ
    This year, I hope to try and get a real community spirit going &
    hope to get everyone camped together as best as possible. Lets break
    down the "this club, that club" barriers and remember we are all there
    for the same reason...AUDIS!!
    I plan to bring a Gas BBQ and Mrs AITP has kindly volunteered to
    cook, so feel free to bring along some BBQ food and get it cooked for
    you!
    All that is really left for me to say is this!....

    We are now in the
    final few weeks before the show, lets all have a real push and smash the
    numbers we had at AITP 2009.
    Please feel free to copy and past this on any Forum or Website you can think of!
    Lets make sure that EVERY Audi owner knows about AITP and lets get them there!

    See you all soon

    Unlucky bud :(

    ...not the time to mention I got mine back today then.... if its any consolation they buggered up re-fitting my B pillar trim and now the seat belts don't retract very well so that and a complete application of Werkstat Jeff's Acrylic are on the cards over the next few days and a full interior detail as they made a bit of a mess (by my standards of course)

    Well I am going to check out tomorrow how realistic it is to get down there but if I am there you may as well pass the spoon straight to me, country lanes and clean don't go hand in hand!

    Ill need to double check but you might be able to add a haggard A3 to the list if you want it there!
