    sounds like you need to come along to the next Aberdeen meet. i was outnumbered 6 to 1 by 10 plate s3 and am trying to even up the numbers.
    check out the local meets section for future plans

    have you got standard discs?

    if so you may wanna try grooved discs to try disperse the heat quicker, im guessing they are vented discs on the a3 (i know they are on s3)

    ive driven some roads in scotland and am in total agreement, they need to be driven hard, they scream out for it, some of them aint for the faint hearted though lol
