    I am relatively new to the forum still even though I have had my S3 now for 6 months, and only know a few people on here. Ive already spoke to a few young S3 owners on Facebook and its good to chat about problems/plans/mods etc

    Before my S3 I had a Corsa 1.3 Limited Edition for MPG and cheap insurance, and was on Corsa-dUK/VXRonline and met a lot decent people on there.

    If any fellow S3 owners or anyone on the forum wants to post links to their Facebook to get to know people better etc it could be good. No worries if you don't like people on Facebook from forums...

    anyway.... heres a link to mine if anyone wants to add me, feel free :)

    I'm going to throw this out there as I'm new as well but a couple of people have told me that this forum can be very cliquey...

    not sure how true that is, just what I've heard.

    Hi! Was it in October by any chance? I drove it up to the Lakes on my birthday, on the day I picked it up, love the area and roads up that way!

    Absolutely right.

    I joined here a while back before starting to modify my car and have always found this place to be friendly and helpful.

    Not at all!!!
    Probably one of the best forums available, nearly everyone will chip in to help if they can, I don't half pester users for advice , recommendations, or just general help and nearly always get an answer very quickly. There must be a few users on here sick to the back teeth of me pestering them, but they still help me out,
    I do help out too when I can
    it is MUCH appreciated :)

    There are groups of people who are all mates in real-life, but I wouldn't really call that cliquey.

    Also, I sold my S3 in November and deleted my facebook back in May, so don't think I qualify for this :sob:

    I've often said that without this forum and a couple of others that I would never have done anywhere near as much to my car,or found all of the right people to do the work,so I can totally agree with this.

    The help and encouragement here is excellent.

    There's always going to be the odd one who tries to mix things about,but like you say,we mostly get on very well,and it's great when we all have a meet up somewhere.

    What...you mean this isn't real life!?

    :laugh:

    Everyone on here has been very helpful so far with me, I've been on forums that have been incredibly cliquey (cliosport, Ed38) and this certainly isn't one.

    I think thats Ice Silver like mine, I just wish mine stood out a a bit more. Maybe powder-coated/new wheels might do that for me
