    Not a bad show to start the season off I guess, £15 to go in isn't really value for this event in my opinion, but the JetCar makes up for it! Was quite annoying to queue up for an eternity to get to our parking plot, but once we got there and all parked up, it all made sense, seeing all our Audi's grouped together! :cool:

    Really liked Gav's Porsche rimmed 8L, looks better in real life after seeing the pics, you have good taste my friend. :icon_thumright: Kev's Liquid Yellow Euro S3 was also nicely done, and much better to see in the flesh(or should that be metal?), so double thumbs up from me. :icon_thumright::icon_thumright: Also really likes SmudgeDons 8P, couldn't stop looking at the wheels, great choice on the colour mate, really goes well with the car. :icon_thumright:

    Roll on to GTI Inters, and hopefully ASN will have as good a showing for, in my opinion, a better event than this one, though many would probably not agree.

    Many Thanks for all those who turned to represent ASN on the stand, and hope to see you guys in future events.

    Hi, it was great to meet a few of you yesterday, a pretty good day. Will try and get my pictures up soon, havn't had a change to go through them yet!! Really liked Smudges wheels, gav's S3 and some blokes Avant A4 on merc rims in the show and shine area (Hi A4Paul :laugh:)

    Luckily I managed to get there early (even though I did take the wrong turn on the way there) and didn't get stuck in what turned out to be a monumental que.

    I too am suffering from the now infamous "podburn". Look forward to seeing you all at the next event.

    :respekt:

    wont be going next year lads, after looking at hundreds of Mk4 and Mk2 golfs and S3's it got boring, although i love the S3's and golfs my heart is at the A4/S4 and to be honest there wasnt many there, i must of counted 5 cars including mine, this show was very biased to some cars especially our bigger A4/S4's and thats wot im interested in so as for next year....nope!! roll on GTI inters and AITP2010 and Audi Driver(my best show yet for the traxck action all audi)

    you have some stunning S3's lads fair play, yours were the best S3's at the show in my opinion. my fav(and the mrs) was this

    then this bad boy

    i share your thoughts mate, i never wanna see another mk2/4 golf ever again :)

    the asn stand mainly comprised of s3's but i loved it as i love s3's :) i too am looking forward to aitp, never been before but from the sounds of it it will be four rings as far as the eye can see, pure bliss lol

    i had a quick nose about your s4 mate, yum yum lol pic in your sig really doesnt do it justice, dont think pics do any of our cars justice to be honest

    i got all excited about the white rs4 parked not far from our stand untill i realised it was a fake and walked off in disgust :)

    To be fair chaps, GTI Spring Festival and GTI International have always been about VW's, and the Audi's/Seats/Skoda's from the Golf4 platform onwards have just tagged along to make them bigger I think. For Audi's only, it has to be AITP and my personal favourite show Audi Driver's International which allows us to take to the track in our cars!

    I do love Golf Mk2's though, as I've owned 2, so these shows still keep me entertained.

    yer mate i realise that, but seeing as audi doesnt really have its own dedicated shows apart from aitp i will still go along to these events to drool over the limited numbers of audis that do turn up, plus to be fair bruntingthorpe is much better for club stands, plenty of space to get the cars organised nicely, pod is always a bit of a squeeze and ruins the show side of things slightly, i mainly go to pod to watch the strip action

    looking forward to the inters though, mid june camping, beers and bbq's, flowery shorts for the blokes, tiny skimpy bikinis for the women, fast and shiney motors, what more could you want lol
