    Many of you will know of Mark, he joined here recently and with a great deal of enthusiasm, posted about his remapped tdi giving his mate's S3 a hard time! I was in support of him here, (one of the few), he is quite right IMo, a remapped PD130 on the road is a formaidable beasty!

    Followig some critisism from others on here who were not so believing , maybe he then went out to test his car, posted it on here and received some negative feelings from many members, including myself initially. But initally I thought he was a bit daft to do it and silly to post the "evidence" up here! I urged him, with others to remove the images but in his maybe naivity and with maybe a bit of bravado (we all need a bit of that!!) he did not take the hint, instead, put down some race challenges and also said no one could link his reg to the photo etc. The thread go locked just the info was all linked together, I started a new thread as it was locked, it was meant to be very tongue in cheek but i am afrraid it did get a bit out of hand.
    My intention was not to ridicule Mark, but to merely point out that he should be a bit cautioous with what he posts on a public forum! And maybe get him to say he was wrong for doing it in the first place. I know he meant no harm by his actions, nor his posting of it, in some ways maybe this forum drove him to it a bit, the respsonse from many others on here, maybe prompted him to go out and "prove" his car a bit....? I dont know, but i do know you have nothing to prove ot any of us here, nor yourself!! You have a very nice quick reliable car wiht a nice image! At 20 odd, that's some going!!

    Anyway after a bit of ribbing and insults flying about, Mark did the decent thing and apologised. OK, it got a bit weird when someone else joined up, (James) and defended him a bit and upset a few of us on here, but he did apologise and that should have been fair ehough.

    He also appologised in another thread on the "debadged grill" .........but unfortunately I nver read this one until late last night, after i replied to the S4 TDi thread.
    Before I saw that one I saw the post he wrote about an S4 badged as a TDI that "surprised" him a bit. Unfortuantely, I jumped on the proverbial bandwagon a bit proabbly read a bit more into his post than he certainly meant, and more than i should have done, and I jumped to the conclusion that a couple of days after the speed thread, Mark was out baiting cars and hooning about a bit!

    I posted my dismay at this late last night. His repsonse was fair enough, he said it was below the speed limit etc, and he was right, nothing in his inital post said he'd done anything illeagal, I just sort of jumped to that conclusion! Now of course i could be right(!!) but the only thing I ever realy felt strongly about in his other threads was the fact he seemed to brag about it on here..........in the S4 TDI thread he was not bragging about it at all, infact wuite the opposite I think.

    As such, I wsh to say to Mark and you all on here, I was wrong to make jump to that conclusion at that time and woring to drag up the previous thread and issue for which MArkj has apologised on here twice now. Also, on reviewing some of your later posts, I was a bit harsh with you too, I think. especially as in the "debadged grill" thread he appologises again for being a bit daft earlier(!) and suggests he's learned is lesson. If I had seen that, earlier post, I would not have posted as I did in the TDI thread.

    So that is it, as I said on my PM to you Mark, I think you are a decent enough fella, you have a nice choice of car in that TDi and I am a big fan of street sleepers! Although your previous cars are not at all my cup of tea, it is clear they were nicely done for the style you chose and well looked after too. An enthusiast you are for sure and you should be welcomed here, not ridiculed or made to feel bad.
    I was very much on your side initally and was wrong to critisise you as much as I did!

    And you are probably correct, many of us on here have tested their cars out early in the morning, so maybe we are hypocrytes...! but not so many post about it, post the piccies and then dont take the hint to remove it!! lol! (please no one do it again, it drag the forum's name through the mud too and there are many instances of people getting in a lot of bother over such things)

    So like I say, I hope you stay around and contribute on here more and more. I will always be interested in your posts as will many others I am sure. I hope you continue tweaking the diesel too!
    You're younger than the rest of us, maybe? This part of the forum (SL) will continue long after I have gone, with guys of your generation buying SL models and enjoying their Audis, not old boys like me!!
    And you are right a nicely mapped TDI will give a stock S3 a hard time out there!! (up to 70 and no more though, eh officer?..:) )lol
    That's all. You did not deserve the snipey comments i made last night and for that I apologise. Take care out there.

    Cheers

    Good work. I thought your sustained "Mark-baiting" started to get OTT, but also thought he deserved it.

    Mark was indeed a dumbass for the photo and comments, but I did feel sorry for him when his Photobucket album was revealed over on barryboys.

    Just read the post re the S4 and you did seem to have the bit between your teeth Simch. Something I can relate to though.

    Put fair play for this post, a lesser man would have said nothing and gone quiet for a bit until it was forgotten. :thumbsup:

    Yes, was totally worng on the S4 thread for sure. Without new entusiastic members like Mark on here, this bit of the forum will die off, as people move up the car ladder etc.

    Hope you can persuade your mate James to move over to the four rings one day too!!? lol!!

    No, no wind up, I reckon our Mark has paid well and truly for his "enthusiastic" posting! And has kept a certain sense of humour under a fair bit of pressure from a lot of us!
    He certainly livened it up here for a few days and after all he was right all along, those pesky remapped diesels get on my wick, especially when they can sail pass every gas station getting 40mpg!! lol
