    Hello World!

    Well I've just moved back to Europe after the last 5 years in the States, and i a word WOW!!...
    All these new beautiful Audi's, and 1 will be mine, oh yesss

    An A3 specifically, to order within the month (getting VERY fed up with my temp solution)

    But still not sure, 3 door or Sportsback? 2.0t or that throaty 3.2 v6? (leaning towards the 3.2)
    Definitely Quattro and DSG, and I've figured the options but still have some questions.
    I'm trying to get a handle on the aftermarket (or current lack thereof for the brand new sportsback)

    Any and All advice, thoughts, ideas invited and welcome...

    Happy Speeding! - /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile_smoking.gif

    I'm feeling quite welcome already! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    In answer to you question Yaseen, I was in the northeast, between upstate NY, and connecticutt.
    I found it an interesting experience as living in any country brings its unique challanges and rewards.
    But frankly I'm not much of an SUV/Pickup man, and couldn't help but smirk when people complained about $1.50- 2.00 a GALLON of gas opposed what europeans are used to paying.
    On a completely different note I was shocked by how little the many of the people i met knew about the world beyond their borders. Not a critisism as much as an observation but interesting nonetheless.
    On the whole though, I found living stateside to be really quite pleasant the people where welcoming and you can't argue with the convienence!

    Agree with all of that- I backpacked round the states for 3 months a few years ago which was fantastic. They love foreign accents /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif,

    Lovely people...stressed Greyhound employees excluded /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh_roll.gif

    Not a bad life- states and now back to the lovely South of France /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue_out.gif

    I worked in Germany for a year with the American Military, had such a laugh

    I found the American's really friendly - got invited to a different bbq most nights

    Off to NY for a short break soon, can't wait (gonna do the tourist thing)
