    I was going to suggest we had one, not sure if it wants to be S3 only, what do you want from a club?

    Something along the lines of the Ford RS Owners Club would be good. I was a member a few years back; very well organised, good discount schemes, excellent club mag etc.

    It would have to be exclusive to some degree to have any credibility; how about an international Audi 'S' Club, open to owners of all 'S' badged cars, past and present, containing registers for S2, S3, S4 and S8, with a special register for 'RS' badged Audis?

    Go for it, Wando. Think of the kudos !!

    anyone up for helping? maybe all registered members would get different access and title on the site? I reckon it should be free though? or maybe pay and get exclusive merchandise? all ideas appreciated!

    Wando,

    Don't know if you've looked at the Ford RS Owners Club site, but if you haven't, you might find it useful for a few ideas:

    Ford RS Owners's Club Website

    You might also want to have a look at this too:

    BMWCCGB

    One of the things that has made the RSOC and BMWCCGB so successful over the years is the support they have got from the factory; they're virtually their official "fan clubs", and a number of dealers even give out membership literature to buyers! Maybe some enquiries with Audi AG would be in order? If we can present a good case (and, given the success over a number of years of Audi-Sport.net, there's no reason why not), I'm sure we can secure at least limited factory support for the idea; after all, Audi are always looking to compete with BMW in the prestige stakes, and it's hardly going to harm sales of their S/RS cars, is it?

    One thing I would suggest, though, is not to make any new club exclusively web-based. This would risk alienating potential non-techie members. Get the balance right, and this could really take off!

    The we'd all have to get sunstrips, loud exhausts, big spoilers and lose a few brain cells /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

    I'd also have to invest in a new wardrobe, buy a load of Ben Sherman shirts and a couple of caps specifically made to wear backwards /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smirk.gif

    ClubGTi for the VeeDubs was good, used to get a club magazine every other month, would feature members rides, sales, special offeres, advise, track day events, meets etc etc...

    When you joined you got a ClubGti sticker, Usually when i was driving around, if you saw a gti with a club sticker in it you would know the car had been looked after.

    I'm afraid you're getting the RSOC confused with the Max Power brigade, my friend.

    A lot of RSOC members were old farts like me, running pristine concours cars, and would have run a mile at the sight of Ben Sherman /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif
