    Popped into Edinburgh Audi this morning to meet the marketing bod thats dealing with our meet on Sunday. Also wanted to inform him that there could be a possibility of 40+ cars coming instead of 25 max. After a slight delay and sucking through his teeth he is now sorting out the parking arrangements and is going to be there on Sunday as he wants to oversee it as he wants nothing to go wrong. The majority of cars will be hopefully around the reception area and down the whole side of the garage so as to give a good backdrop for photos. Bring on Sunday.............I've also booked the weather so T-shirts it is....lol

    Still unknown on this one, due to a technical hitch...
    I'm hoping that Jim @ Star will be able to re-flash my ECU & get it going again...
    At the moment, my motor is dead :(

    Weather for Saturday is supposed to be fantastic.. So it's a wash and polish day! Weather for Sunday should start nice but might get rain later in the afternoon! Fingers crossed it's much later.. :p

    Hi,

    I am intending to go to this meeting and would prefer to travel from Aberdeen with other Audis. If that is OK, can you please advise where when you guys are meeting?

    Yup, I stupidly decided to have a play around with the ECU flash without instructions & it "threw a hissy fit"...
    Idle thumbs & all that :(

    Just a wee heads up to anyone heading from Falkirk or Stirling direction that part of the motorway is shut just before the Edinburgh airport turn off, might be better to go down via Bathgate and join the M8 direct in from there.

    Look forward to meeting everyone :)

    I find it's easier to just accept that my car has always needed a proper machine polish but isn't going to get one. The "used daily" look is a winner.

    Aye that's like mine Martay, needs a proper "detail" loads of scratches and swirl marks all over her..... there's only so much you can do with Auto glym super resin and extra gloss?!!?

    Well buddy your in luck as I am a detailer too. Have a look at DannyH76's TTRS tomorrow as I did that yesterday. It took 8 hours to do as the paintwork was in desperate need of some TLC. Minted now though.

    Black car's are a nightmare for showing up marks but they do look awesome when nicely polished up! I've had a few but tend to avoid them for that reason now. I've still got mine to clean up in the morning, hopefully the weather is what it says or might be washing it in the rain lol

    Well Dannys TTRS is Panther Black and it was covered in swirls and scratches. I love getting my hands on cars like that as I love turning them into something nice. Takes a while but well worth it. You'll see it tomorrow as he's pitching up.

    My A4's paint was looking a bit worse for wear when I got it a few months ago but I've had the clay bar and the machine polisher out and it looks so much better. Could do with a bit more machine polishing I think but the worst of it is gone!

    Wow Mark, if the weather down with you is anything like up here then you did a perfect job of ordering the weather! ;)

    Look forward to it, see you guys in a few hours.

    P.s. If you could do it for today then why didn't you manage for the Banchory meet?! That weather was shocking! ;)

    Well the weather is glorious here today. Clear blue skies all around with NO clouds looming anywhere. A wee bit frosty this morning at 0730 but thats now burnt off and the sun is shining..........See I told you it would be .....thee of little faith.

    And the reason I didnt do it for the Aberdeen meet is that it wasn't my meet...........that was Martys.....lol

    Was a good meet unfortunately had to leave a bit early. Thanks to Brodster for organising it, will hopefully be able to attend any future events.
    Would also like to say well done to the TT mob for turning up in decent numbers. was good to catch up with everyone and meet some new people
