    Well we could do 1st weekend on march, but it would have to be a saturday for lee to come and even then it depends if its busy so we could wait till the weekend after and go on a sunday? If we are wanting as many people to come as possible then a sunday would probs be better as not many work on a sunday is my thinking.

    i can't do that week as I'm offshore then :( the first weekend in march or next Saturday is best for me if I'm honest.

    Andy.. It's a fair trek from ashington mind hope the snows gone from up there ;) haha just kidding. Nice choice with the A4 I love the PD130 engine my mate has the same engine in his A3 it's mapped to 167bhp and goes really well :)

    Yeah I bet there's still plenty of snow when we go up to tan hill!

    Haha I wish it was as simple to map mine just can't be done with removing the DPF and smoking like a tractor haha!

    is your A3 the 140?. I had a 54 reg 140 and I mapped that. I had it for a year and the only problem I had was it blew a boost pipe off the intercooler!

    andy you don't need to worry about a DPF as the a4 you have won't have one. But yeah if you have a DPF it needs removing you then need to flash the ECU to tell it that's it's been removed then map the engine

    Just bought an RNS-E which might be fitted for the meet which is the main thing, wouldn't mind the multi functional steering wheel to go with it. then just a few little bits like new mats, LEDs which are on their way already :)

    Should we start a list of names, so we know who is actually wanting to go?

    Hi coatsey..

    we are thinking of meeting at Durham services. Then making our way over heart side pass stopping off at the cafe. Then down the other side to join the a66. We are then gonna turn off the a66 and go to tan hill. Once we get there we have a choice on which way we go home.. We can either go down the other side into reeth then Richmond or we can head back to the A66 an head for scotch corner

    Thinking of just deleting out the EGR and getting it remapped to just get rid of it.

    Scrap that part above, half day tomorrow. I still need the shudder value so the part is ordered from euro parts, gaskets ordered from audi collection tomorrow fit and sorted by friday night i hope. the job doesnt seem to be that hard so if all goes will il be rocking by 3 ish which gives me time to clean the car :p

    look what else turned up today though :) Im poor till tuesday so have to wait to got it fitted as i dont trust myself and i dont have the VCDS :(

    Nice one. The only thing with deleting the EGR though is some people have had improved performance etc but other people have been saying its made there car run like a bag of spammers and caused other problems.
    Like the new head unit wouldn't mind the same one in mine! How much did you give for that if you don't mind me asking?.

    1) PauliM (Audi a3 2.0 tdi)
    2) Dean.no4 (Audi a3 2.0 tdi)
    3) P_G (Audi RS3)
    4)
    5)

    I'll put my name down for a meet but not likely to be free in March; Geneva first and second weekend for the motorshow, not around for the 2 weekends after that and then its Easter so if there is one organised for April onwards I can make it.

    Could organise it at Revolution in Gateshead with the RS246 members? Then a drive out past Sunniside on to Chester-le Street through the b-roads?

    didn't get to service the car at the weekend due to loads of snow and me not been man enough to roll around in it lol

    we should try to organize some sort of rolling road session some where just for giggles.

    i doubt ill be able to make this meet on sunday. having bad times at work with the company not knowing weather it wants to keep us on or not so i could be spending my weekend looking for jobs and saving my money.
