    Picked my S3 up on Saturday and had Dave aka Jac-in-a-box come over an do a full detail on it along with my mates TT. 2 days and 20+ hours for both the cars.

    Covered in best of show (Swissvax). Looks stunning, silky smooth and will be a doddle to clean. The car was Ex-demo and had a few car wash marks on it, now it is perfect!

    The RS4 belongs to APS in Brackley. I know the guys very well over there. Was talking to Ed about lowering, re-map and exhaust as well as a few other bits and bobs!

    I'm thinking of orginising a GB day on Cruise control for the S3 or A3's if anyone is interested, in the past I have done them for the TT forum and Ed has made it an open day with free food.

    Anyone interested?

    Thats a perfect excuse to retrofit that cruise control I should have specced! Although it sounds like your well south of my location.

    John, its south midlands, not far from Silverstone at Brackley. I'm getting prices as we speak, The TT's used to be £145 but i'm told its different for the newer cars and more expensive. Im aiming for around the £200 mark plus loads of other offers on the day (re-maps, servicing, lowering etc)

    Last year we had 3 open days and did CC to over 20 cars.

    Well worth the trip.

    My mate is a ex Audi mechanic who fits cruise no problems and has his own business, hes done loads of work on my previous cars.

    He would do a good rate....and in the Stockton area.

    Hows about £140-150 (inc labour) with him providing all the bits and you just turning up?

    Anytime really but if you are both wanting it done probs would be best for the same day then he can get all the parts together, you and John get your heads together!

    He works normal hours Mon to Fri and finishes early afternoon on Sat.

    Probs a weeks notice so the parts can be ordered

    I'd be tentatively interested in getting cruise fitted...

    Where would it be done? (I'm based/travelling from London).

    Yep, I'm up for that too. Hopefully Mr K can take us for a spin in his remapped car too!

    Is your mate only fitting the kits during his normal hours or is he available out of hours? If so I can certainly do a Saturday. Let me know.

    Regards, John.

    Probs only during operating hours as he is very busy, but you never know if I ask nicely....

    Yes that remapped car sounds a good idea too....maybe not cause i'll end up wanting mine done!

    Thanks Jamie, Klauster might even have a new suspension set up by then. You'd better start saving!!

    I'll be up for this if we can negotiate a sub £200, haven't seen Ed since he was at AMD but a great guy and APS have an excellent reputation.

    I'm trying hard to get sub £200. If people are doing it for £150 inc labour i would be questioning if they are genuine Audi parts and impact on Warranty.

    APS are a fully authorised VAG service centre so no impact on warranty work.

    As soon as i confirm a price i'll post up.

    My mate is a Audi mechanic and gets his parts from the parts department at Audi, the labour is a favour to me and my friends as he is my mate. Thats the problem with companies they all wanna make a profit....

    I see, does he want a trip South at that price I'm sure we could rustle up a few down here.

    Why not a day out for everyone up here?

    How far are you travelling?

    Would it offset the £50 you would be saving to come up here?

    At the rate the S3 is burning fuel, i would say no. 500 mile round trip. 27mpg, 0.99 ppl fuel gives £83. If it was a bit further south then maybe.
