    Sounds a good idea to me, especially as it'll mean a drive over snake pass if it is in the manchester region

    Would love to come to this, but its a busy time for me. In the process of moving house, and may complete either weekend of the 4th or 11th.

    I'll keep an eye out for the date you set, and I may be able to pop across for an hour or two for the meet. Can't commit to doing the carting etc. though, but it would be good to meet up with fellow S3 8P owners.

    I have seen bloody loads of S3's in the North West. Not sure how many are on here though. Seen a black one, reg: S3 CUB a few times. Saw a white one in Warrington (A50) last week with what looked like 19" RS4's on - looked superb.

    Well if everyone who has an s3 post in here saying im up for it. Then we can eventually organise a near enough entire meet.
    We have go to get a photo of S3's say Northwest on as.net

    We can praps make this an event or just a general meet. Just need you all to but in and say your mind.

    I agree with mitch78.

    Lets just keep it simple. Just a meet-up, chat, few drinks (soft drinks obviously) maybe a bite to eat in a pub. There's nothing wrong with something like that, then as the meets become more established and regular, then think about more activities such as karting, drives etc.

    Getting a regular venue and turn-out of people is always the hardest thing with meets. IMO. Oh, and the hardest thing of all is not appearing like completely sad chavs!!! :)

    No you have an S3 lol. There is no requirement, just wanted the majority of S3's to turn up.

    I agree with mitch also.

    Daytona Karting in Manchester ( Near Old Trafford ) is a possibility then pub for a few soft drinks would be cool. Or something Similar.

    From experience on my other forum you as the instigator need to suggest Date and Place and then all will drop in line with you. Leave it open and dates just keep passing. Karting night sounds good. Though I tend to have a substantial disadvantage (17.5 stone don't pull in Karts).

    Hmmm, I might have JUST taken delivery of my new S3 by the 8th, I live down south so a road trip to Manc and back would be a nice way to fast track the engine break-in a little bit!

    To be honest, I don't think I'll make it even if I do get my car, I'll probably be moving house that weekend thinking about it! :(

    Will try to make the next meet.

    looking forward to my S3 (sprint blue) due in september, this is a company car, the ST is our personal car, even with Giac chip to be fitted to S3, i dont expect once rolling the S3 to be anywhere near as quick as the ford, i love Audis i have a A4 1.8T s-line brilliant red with superchip ecu company car at the mo, it feels very slow on monday mornings after driving the ST, then again so did the S3 on test drive, then again ive spent a small fortune on the ST.
