    Hehe, me neither!

    I've managed to find a co-pilot now, It would have been a big ask to drive all day AND night!

    So is it 4 S3's confirmed and nobody else or have we got other maybe's?

    Regards

    Leon

    We did this a couple of years ago with a group of ford RS's going down to GERMANY, We asked for a group discount and they gave us 10% discount.
    Its worth a try?

    I also PMed Madalex couple of days ago to confirm if he was also coming... Havent got a reply back yet.

    Alex are we coming back on the same route? Throught Lyon same motorways etc?

    Four S3's so far going to be quite a parade of our "exotic" motors hurtling down the french roads :blackrs4:

    No worries mate, there are 4 S3's already (8 people I guess) so should be a blast. I'm pretty sure madalex will come too if we can get hold of him!

    Nope. No word from him. He doesn't come online much nowadays.
    His car and Lee's car would look great together. Both Phantom black and both with the black optics grills.:photo:

    L60N Guest

    Mornin chaps.

    Im all good for the journey, car is at Audi recieving some TLC for recent events.

    I just wondered what is required for converting the lights for europe? I dont want to pay Audi £.... for something if it can be avoided.

    Can i put some stickers on the lights or something? lol:whistle2:
     
  37. S3 LTN

    S3 LTN Guest

    Plug into Vagcom should do the trick. They'l charge you though. If you know a mate with one then :o.k: You've just saved yourself £50 / £60.
     
  38. S3 LTN

    S3 LTN Guest

    No probs. We'll meet up there with you.
     
  39. L60N

    L60N Guest

    Is there anybody available on Friday 02 May who can VAGcom my car to europe lights for some beer money?

    Regards

    Leon

    I'm borrowing boggysv's VAGCOM at the moment, so if you know how to (I don't) we can set the lights at the services. I prolly won't bother with my car, been to europe many times and its never been a problem.
