    was it a black ed. sportback with roof rails? i've seen one heading back towards that way from Kirkby direction, noticed because it was identical to mine!

    Haha no worries, I did glance in the mirror and thought you may have put the hazards on.

    Actually passed another Ara S3 tonight on the way out of Stirling at Ogilvie/FES roundabout.

    Saw 2 today ..

    Blue S3 in the Costco car park, carbon mirrors, the wing arm alloys or whatever they were called.

    Also saw another Ara Blue on the way there, I only caught it at last minute though not sure if was an S3 or RS3... both were "RF" reg numbers.

    Loads of spots since my last post but haven't been able to get on and post.

    Are blue one on a motorway between Liverpool and Manchester around Mid Day last Sunday.

    Not much details but I'm sure you'll know if it was you as you were grinning from ear to ear with thumbs up at me convoying with a blacked out Merc A45 back from cars and coffee Liverpool! :)

    And there was also a black sportback s3 at the Liverpool cars and coffee

    A nice Blue S3 8P with black wheels behind me with "S3 xxx" number plate heading onto A92 at Kirkcaldy West this morning :thumbs up:

    Not well up on the colours of that model but it was a vaguely similar shade to Ara

    I think 8P had the option of sprint blue which is fair similar to Ara

    Road trip!

    Dad lives and works north of Milan, so I flew out Thursday driving back yesterday and today.

    He has a 630i convertible that’s needs an MOT so we are bringing it home for a few months.

    Went from 15c on Friday to -2c now lol

    Brilliant mate, that sounds like an amazing trip. Stunning view of the lakes!
    Looks like you're back in UK now, you'll be passing through some snow enroute.
    It's white here and at your place currently, with dry powdery drifting snow.
    Good fun in the Beemer!
    Safe trip bud :thumbs up:
