    Since joining the forum Ive never bumped into anyone from the lovely parts of the North East.

    Is there a scene in the North East for Audis?

    Not really a scene as such. A few of us have met up now and then over the years.

    In fact a few of us of here and another forum had a good run out lasr weekend.
    I'll drop you a pm if we meet up in future

    Bloody hell, I nearly fell over when I saw a post in this thread. Reeper will see you right in that dept as he said.

    I think that Damian :hi:should invite us round for tea and biscuits at DPM and maybe we will return the favour by getting the bank cards out.

    I would be up for it. :icon_thumright:

    All joking aside, it wouldn't be that bad an idea. I know that DPM don't have a shop front, but a "refreshments" tent and some borrowed garden furniture and we're done. It would be good if they could maybe talk us (me being a nOOb) through each product, etc...

    I think we have a deficit of tuning houses in the NE; I can only think of Revolution. We need the sort of thing that Awesome do and have a get together.

    And yes, Fraulines stay at home. :lmfao:

    Yeah we'd be interested in doing this for sure. We did one about 2 years back where Golf+ covered it.

    Damian,

    I would be glad to assist in what way I can from an owners perspective. I am sure that we can tie in with other forums too; I know one for sure.

    I for one am in the market for spacers, ARBs, springs and possibly CAI in the future so would be a great help.

    PM if you want.

    Yeah that's great, we have a fairly big car park outside but there's an even bigger area not too far away that could be even better. I'll look into it and let you know.

    You will probably see him around in S3 sometime.

    As for the yellow A3, I dunno as I am over the other end of the County. The spotters forum here is always good for a punt if you spot a nice Audi.

    You do realise that if the DPM thing comes off, as this is your thread all the beers are on you? :moa:

    I think there may be a few others in the area who may partake in a littel trip up to DPM should something get organised.
