I won't be able to make this after all. Hope everyone has a great time and I look forward to the photos :)

Thanks all for a fantastic event! It had a really friendly vibe and the location was superb - the cars nestled amongst the trees with the manor house as a backdrop, really special.
Big thanks to @JMGR33N for the original suggestion and for organising the event for us all, and @THQuattro for...
Great show! Shame I could only attend for a few hours, but the stand looked nice with the flags and I got to meet a few of you throughout the day :sunglasses:

I had exactly the same issue with mine, although I can't complain about the aftersales care as Scorpion were fantastic in getting it sorted. Exhaust is spot on now though, both in terms of fitment and sound level.
More information from my related posts are here:
Update #1 with photos before...
I've had a few discussions with my contact at Basingstoke Audi now and I have good news and bad news...
Bad news :cry:
The dealership is undergoing a £1m overhaul starting in a few weeks' time, so July is out of the question.
Good news :relaxed:
The idea of the meet has been officially...
Is there any further information about the event, specifically regarding timings? E.g. should the people making use of the club parking (e.g. us) arrive earlier?
This is all I could find on the website...
What time does the show start/finish?
-Gates open at 10am and close at 5pm.
In July we'd need to be careful to avoid other major VAG meets, so how about these dates:
Sundays are generally best for meets IMO but I don't want to break any conventions so I'll take your lead. Depends on the dealership too I guess...
Basingstoke Audi (despite being in Hampshire and not Berkshire and therefore arguably less posh :playful:) do regularly have R8s in their showroom and workshop, so you won't be disappointed.
@Sandra, do you have any dates in mind or an idea of timescales?
Apologies for the radio silence guys! Didn't mean to avoid payment, just wasn't getting any notifications from this thread for some reason. My car's fresh out of the bodyshop and detailer in preparation for a feature in AudiTuner, and in time for this event, so I'm still keen to attend :)
Sorry to hear this, but thanks for sharing your story and for making some really important points.
That exactly matches my experience - never underestimate the benefits of a full Audi service history and a loyal relationship with a friendly dealer!
I'd always avoided main dealers in the past...
Brilliant! I'll be there then :)
