We are pleased to announce that VAG at the Manors new home for 2018 will be Dinton Pastures Country Park in Reading.

I meant I was more shocked that there was one near me as I haven't really seen any, probably see more RS6 than any other RS model. Will have to keep an eye out :)

And yeah, the Oracle isn't the best! Not sure there is a much better alternative though..!

Part of the reason why i have a 15 year old peugeot.......sometimes need to park cars in awful carparks, near footy grounds, in dodgy areas, drive into london, lug stuff from ikea, take stuff to the tip, rare trip to the wifes allotment (neither the s3 nor rs3 would make it unscathed)

@Sandra Just decided to still go ahead with attending, went to book a ticket online and in the drop down for club attendance it doesn’t list any club only that I’m not attending with a club. Does this matter for anything on your end Sandra or can I just go ahead and book without assigning a club?

That’s not like you Matt. :)

I know tell me about it, in Tenerife at the moment so I think that helped me forget. Wasn’t sure if I was going to bother going with the show 2 days after I get back, but I know I will enjoy it when the day comes around.

@MikeSel^ So Mike, due to lack of tent at VATM I’m guessing you won’t need any help setting up on the day?

The Mica Pup is popping in the sun ready for tomorrow, can’t wait to get it to its first show!

Now cue the dust to ruin the shiny paintwork on the trip down in the morning

@AudiNutta did the new stop start module cause you earache on the drive home?

:lmfao:

The silent treatment lasted until about when I got to the Severn Bridge, I think it’s sunk in now..... :p

The face wasn’t impressed though when I started it outside to put it in the garage and I said to her “I went to press the button then”.. just to rub it in ;)

Haha good work, I am sure it could easily be fixed with a new pair of shoes or a date night

Good to see you today, your car is awesome - I am jealous :)

Hope the suspension calibration helped!

Oops! Seems someone foolishly dumped their BBQ in one of the bins today at Dinton! Luckily the firebrigade managed to keep it under control

Looks like we missed all the drama!
That was a smart idea though with how dry the ground was.... People :)

Uh, she’s coming abroad with me for the third time this year next week so that’s enough for me ;) Been told the spending money is on me now though @DJAlix it was one expensive start stop module ;)

Thank you, equally to you! It was a quiet show and the weather excelled maybe a little too much, looking forward to AITP.

No doubt it has, no bouncing coming off of speed bumps and seems to deal with rollercoaster roads better. It soaks up repeating rolls and bumps better and that’s just on the motorway, not had much time to test on local roads yet but definitely happy and now I know it’s set up right and that’s what matters. Plus even on the motorway, the difference is pretty clear switching to dynamic now.

I only stayed for an hour as so I didn't get to speak to many of you. My car was covered in dust afterwards so I am glad I didn't spend too long cleaning it the day before. See you all at AITP
