    Nice thread...

    I was a member back in the day when it was sport-3.net when I had my first S3. Sold the S3 and moved away to another forum. Then got the bug again and bought another S3 and came back.

    OK, so I have no idea how I found the site, probably mis-spelled a search for some pron or something....

    But, I was kinda out of it for the whole ASN went haywire tale.... and then Olly appeared... So, Olly, were you around all the time? Under a different username?

    Actually just remembered I was thinking of buying an S4 and found the site from there, along with the fact that I had some waterpump trouble with my 100 at the time... the rest, as they say, is history!!

    I found it by googling, but the reason I stayed was because of the friendlyness of the people on here (unlike www.tdiclub.com) and of the ease of use (unlike www.audiworld.com).

    I joined the UK MKIV's forum as I was after a 1.8T Golf at the time. I ended up getting an S3 instead... and when I posted asking about ICE advice I got told to come here and ask for AndyMac... which I duly did.

    Google for me, when looking at an S3, then started posting more and more after owning for a while. I too was wondering where Olly came from...

    I was looking to buy a Audi Locking Key for my A4 on eBay, asked if it would work and how to configure it, they pointed me in the direction of this site to get my questions answered. So here I am!
    Unfortuanlty the locking/alarm key I wanted doesn't work for my Audi, but did buy a Votex Kit, which does the job perfect!\

    Cheers for your help on all issues so far guys!

    Well, I used to be a dubber with a long line of golfs, but never found a decent audi site, I did used to check out the old ASN from time to time and then like I said, I got involved with fixing/upgrading the site and I've never looked back !

    Google.

    I was in Singapore, my wife was at home and I suggested she look around at a few S3s as a replacement for the Corrado. I started looking for info on what to check for but by the time I'd got useful info she'd bought one anyway, guess she couldn't resist a shopping trip. :faint:
