    Just got back from the shoot for my feature in Golf+ magazine, so if anyone reads it keep an eye out in the next couple of issues.

    Met up with David Corefield at a location just down the road from me to get some shots of my S4, and looking at what he took they should look stunning, the guy really knows his stuff! Thoroughly nice bloke as well, good to meet a genuine passionate enthusiast, plus he owns a lovley Audi Quattro, he loves the 4 rings with a passion!

    I know this is a bit self indulgent, but why the hell not! My 1st feature car after years of graft spending a fortune building cars finally someone loved one enough to share it with the world!

    That's good, Stapo.

    Nothing wrong with bragging - I'm jealous as hell!

    Nice work Stapo.

    I'm sure the moment someone launches "Standard Audi with Potential" magazine I'm sure to get a feature.....

    The wheels are 19s but I think as it sits so low and the tires are stretched and v low profile it gives the impression of a bigger wheel.

    And as for Audi magazines the guy that shot the car used to edit Total Audi and apparently it's loooking close to getting it back on the shelves, which is good news, a decent Audi magazine for all things standard to fully modified, he's also trying to organize a decent Audi tuning show too.

    Cracking news mate, might even buy a copy.

    Nothing beats the feeling of walking into a newsagents, picking a magazine up, opening the page and saying to yourself "That's my car".

    Erm... that's why it's called Golf 'plus' = plus other VAG cars...:ninja:

    Performance VW sometimes has Audi's in too... :think:

    I made sure I had a pic (well my S3) next to this S4 and have to say its the best I have seen recently,the wheels aren't my cup of tea and the air fresheners on the rear handle :) but the carbon and stance also interior are well worth this shoot.

    Hey there's nothing wrong with "new car smell"! And the blue magic tree matches my paint! Sad I know.....

    I was in Bourne on friday! Small world! We'll have to meet yeah, plenty of people round here I hang with, usually meet in Peterborough.

    Find me a modified Audi magazine and I'd try get in it! Like Geeman says though we have to make do with Golf+ and Performance VW, the German car scene is a welcoming one and all VAG is welcome, VW, Audi, Seat and Skodas all amke features and appearances.

    Hopefully Total Audi will make a welcome return back to our shelves and we can have a place we can call home again!
