    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?

    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:

    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.

    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.
