    I go to a few around Stoke but they aren't VAG/Audi meets - just general car meets.

    I used to go to one in Cannock all the time, it was at the pub in norton canes just round the corner from Midland VW, was VAG only and the mids vw boys were always about. That was back in the day when it was a small company and the lads were younger! Now they are all grown up and have a well known and serious business to run!

    Well thats what i mean really just a small meet that will gather momentum you know. There is myself and Nick from over Burton on Trent way that get together so why not start something?

    I used to to the Vauxhall club over in Leicester all the time back in the days and its a good afternoon or whatever out from the norm.

    What day is best for people?

    Ok so what about the 23rd January (sunday) afternoon? location is always a good one maybe Tamworth as there are good links and it seems to be pretty central from what folks have posted?

    Im not trying to run this so open to your ideas guys.

    I have a great location in mind, also from Leicester.

    Used to run a big club called DubClique a few years back and now run WFSU.co.uk.

    If you want me to sort something, I will. :) x

    I may be able to make this assuming I can stop my A4 leaking oil! :banghead: Weekend of 29/30 would be better for me, but lets see what is good for everyone else. :thumbsup:

    Don't know Tamworth too well I'm afraid, so can't suggest a venue.

    i would be up for a Midlands meet but would not be able to make the 23rd, would be interested in future meets,

    venues could be(this is based on location)

    The Centurion, Tamworth B77 5PN - jct10 M42

    Bassetts Pole B75 5SA - inbetween Tamworth & Sutton Coldfield - this has been a venue for a large bikers meet that has been going for years - also has a mcdonalds onsite

    The Fox Inn, Tamworth B79 7SH - Ember Inns, nice pubs with nice food

    The Tame Otter, Tamworth B78 3AF - cant remember the size of the car park here but nice traditional pub

    Is this still happening? I Live in Tamworth and there's nothing but corsa meets at maccy's around here.
    Non of the car parks at the pubs are really a decent size, Bassett Pole is probably the best bet to be honest, still not all that big mind, the McDonalds bit is though.
    The Centurion is alright but does get pretty busy at times, easiest for people to get to though. Right on the A5 and M42.

    Hey Guys, soz not been on this section for a while....

    OK, heres the story, there are a group of VW/Audi guys that get together on a weekly basis at the Sainsburys in Coventry (details below).

    They are a very chilled out group of guys, no silly driving or antics, just a gathering for like minded Dub and Audi Drivers.

    I have arranged a few meets there for the AS.Net boys and we have a really good time.

    If anyone is interested, I can get some dates together (Wednesdays only) and we can get together for a meet there will the regulars.

    Details for the meet......

    :: A laid back very friendly meet
    :: Meeting on a weekly basis
    :: All german and exotic cars welcome
    :: 8pm meet time
    :: located in the Sainsburys car park @ Austin Drive, Coventry, West Midlands, England, CV6 7NS
    :: regular turnout of 30+ cars

    Any questions let me know....

    No worries mate, any (VAG) car is welcome, others are too, but we are a bit snobbish like that....lol.

    As long as you dont drive like a tw4t, you are welcome.

    Drop me a PM with your number if you like and I can give you shout one of the Wednesdays there are a few of us going there.

    Also can you PM me a price for your VAGCOM cable as well please.
