    AUDI S3 QUATTRO - How Many Left?

    It's the same with pretty much any mainstream car mate- as soon as you buy one you see loads of them around! Got to say though I still don't see that many 8L S3s around my area...

    I'm often cruising along the coast from Kent towards Sussex way as well......so I'll give you a flash if if I see ya (with my lights that is :p) - I often do with other 8L S3s

    There is a meet happening in Chatham next week actually -

    http://www.audi-sport.net/vb/south-east/172362-bluewater-meet.html#post1867272

    I'm not to sure if I can get along yet - but I regularly attend meets and events round the south of England and will be getting very busy not it's summer.

    They used to have a regular VAG meet in Ashford as well next to the Harvester.

    I've seen your motor a few times as well up at Bens....

    Not had a chance to meet the man behind the car yet though!
    Ben even gave her a quick start up after you had the BT put on but without a map or exhaust! Sounded crazy :jump:

    We should all have a little meet along the coast one day and go for a drive in convoy and get some shots in actions :)

    Unfortunately no body looks in there that regularly :(

    Just trying to drum up interest in the 8L section and finding out where people are actually from...any dates and names of people attending will get set up in the correct section though.

    Ronnie and I have tried to set up a meet JUST in that section and it didn't really kick off tbh....

    127 for me. More speed on the roundabout and 1 gear change less is the way forward.

    and more power.
