    Hi Guys, Gals,

    I have just bought myself a 3.2 A3 Quattro sport-back 2005 model with open sky, DSG, Bose, xenons, leather, s-line....

    I have been a car enthusiast for a few years now and was looking at a few different toys before I settled on the A3 V6.

    I am also a bit of a bike nut too with a Ducati and a Harley.

    Nice to meet you all :)

    Welcome along, sounds like you've got yourself a decent spec A3 there. Check out the Scottish section for events and stuff :thumbsup:

    What Harley you got?

    Welcome to the forum Blackwater. Your car sounds like a nice one. Not into motorbikes myself at all, but if I was I'd have a Ducati!

    Hello and welcome, always glad to see new Scottish members. A3 sounds like a cracker, but have to admit I'm more interested in the bike. Not many proper bikes up here, mostly Japanese rockets rather than big bikes.

    I guess all the Harleys are tucked away for winter and don't venture into town much. I usually see either L-plated little scooters, or GSX-Rs. I remember seeing a Triumph Rocket on Union St about 10 years ago, sat beside it in a Focus with half a litre less displacement!

    I don't even ride bikes, yet alone own one. Always been a wanting to get into it, but I'd definitely crash. There's just too many bad drivers around, it's barely safe to be in a car. My dad had an F150 Harley Davidson until my brother rolled it and wrote it off too.
