Guys, have a fantastic time tomorrow, look forward to hearing all about it and seeing all the pics. Just quick reminder of the schedule from Pat.

Message from Pat at Audi Belfast


I hope everyone is looking forward to Saturdays visit and Costal tour. Just to avoid and disruptions would it be possible to send out some details to your members.

On arrival to Belfast Audi please take left in car park and you will be directed to our over flow area. This will be your area for the morning where you can meet and take photos.

I will meet everyone here at 9.30am and take you through to the Quattro Canteen for breakfast. Doreen and her staff will be on site with breakfast prepared.

A tour of our business will follow afterwards before Grahame leads everyone on a tour of out magnificent Antrim Coast.

Normal business for the dealership on Sat so it would be important to keep together. Please be careful when entering and exiting the car park.



Look forward to seeing everyone.

Pat.

Had a lovely morning at Belfast Audi, Pat and Will met us outside at our cars, had a quick chat and then brought us inside for our breakfast, ****** by the lovely Doreen in Cafe Quattro.

After this we had a great in depth tour and history of the magnificent Belfast Audi building and the day-to-day running of their business. Pat goes through every detail thoroughly and answers all our questions that we may have, he is a perfect gentleman, very chatty, very welcoming and nothing is ever a problem to him.

We were taken over to the showroom floor for an exclusive preview of the new A6, Pat and a newly appointed sales guy (sorry I didn’t catch his name) took the cover off so we could get good look at the latest version of their executive express. They politely asked that if we took pictures of the A6, not to share them online until after the car gets its official unveiling next week. This was certainly not a problem to us as we would not want to get any staff into trouble for any reason.

I was very impressed with the new A6, a very handsome car, it proudly carries the latest design language that we saw on the new A7 and it’s finally a car that could turn people away from buying its rivals. After the preview we were taken around the parts store and workshop areas of the building, it’s easy to see that Belfast Audi run an effortlessly tight ship.

A very enjoyable morning even though I did get ribbed constantly for driving a rival brand and to top it off, got stung by a wasp outside in the carpark hahahaha :chargrined:

Many thanks to Pat and the team for taking the time once again out of their busy schedules to show us around :)

Aaron summed it up better than I ever could. It was my first Audi-sport.net visit to Belfast Audi and I enjoyed it very much. Was good seeing him again and also met Chris, who got his A4 a few weeks ago and another member in an S3 8L, apologies not sure what his name is.

Pat is such a nice guy, as are all the staff at Belfast Audi. Only 3 cars turned up from Audi-sport which was a bit disappointing but the TT guys really came through. Really civil bunch of lads they are too.

And to top it off I won an Audi detailing kit, which looks so well presented I don't know if Il even use it lol.

Thanks for the invite Sandra!

I didn’t attend but I do have a question, why were you told not to share pictures of the A6 when it was revealed to the world in March at Geneva? Just curious.

If I had to guess id say Belfast Audi are possibly planning their own launch event, separate to the official Geneva launch. Could be wrong though. You would need to ask Pat to know for sure. I'm sure there is some reason behind it.
 
Sorry I couldn't attend folks. Something came up last minute that I couldn't escape from.

Looked like another great meet from what I saw in James' photos on his Facebook photography page. Hoping I can attend whatever is next on the calender.

Apologies with the lateness of posting a reply and photos, joys of being flat out with work.

Sadly due to one of my clients messing me about i nearly wasnt able to make it full stop but managed to organise it so i could make the meet at Belfast Audi and leave after and meet with the client and not following on the run. Cracking turn between the clubs, even i was surprised with the turn out of TTs in attendance
