  2. Bought this yesterday: https://www.carsales.com.au/cars/details/2018-mercedes-benz-cls450-auto-4matic/OAG-AD-17402365/?Cr=0 Traded in Moby Dick (ML500) after 5 faultless years of service - but I really didn't need a big SUV anymore (if ever )
  3. Last week
  4. Wednesday 4th September, 6:30pm onwards at Ye Olde Swan, Woughton on the Green, Milton Keynes, just off the A421. Ye Olde Swan has been our home for rapidly approaching 3 years now: lovely outside garden area which we enjoyed in July and twice last year, cosy 16th century core for the colder half of the year (no Disney windmills here!) plus most importantly really great food! Last month for a change we headed outside MK for a curry which saw a good turn out under good weather. This month sees a return to our home pub in MK for the penultimate summer time meet of the year. 6:30pm onwards, any enthusiast welcome, not just VAG and / or Porsche! Usual suspects please post your interest, potential MK meet newbies please post below so we can look out and welcome you. The meet is posted on RS246, Audi SRS, the S2 Forum and TSN. Table booked for 7:30pm, number required before the night, hence the roll call below.... Ye Olde Swan Newport Road Woughton on the Green Milton Keynes Buckinghamshire MK6 3BS 01908679489 The bit highlighted in red on the second map is the road through the pub - you can access from both ends. Congregate at the north end of the car park - the four spaces by the red arrow are the biggest for A8s + RS6s etc

  6. Bucks Curry Meet - Weds 7th Aug

    Brilliant evening for what was our first summertime curry meet up. Weather was on our side before the forecast storms Fri/Sat, took a few quick photos, should have snapped Richards lovely D5 A8 from the otherside as they haven't come out well in the sunshine sorry Next meet - Weds 4th September back at the usual MK central pub.

  9. Bucks Curry Meet - Weds 7th Aug

    Ate there on Fri night, looking forward to eating there again this Wed! Planning to bring the newly-watertight red car so hopefully the weather will co-operate.
  10. Bucks Curry Meet - Weds 7th Aug

    Looking forward to the excellent Wednesday meal deal at the Red Chilli. Need to arrive hungry!
  11. As discussed with those present the last two months, and as mentioned in the close of last months thread, the regulars have called for a return to Red Chilli Gold curry house in Buckingham. Congregate from 6:30pm onward, table booked for 7:30pm. Hopefully it isn't 38 degrees! There is a large car park directly behind the curry house signed Cornwalls Meadow Car Park, next to a Waitrose, 300+ spaces, pay and display, but free after 5pm. Spot to aim for highlighted on map below. Table provisionally booked, can be extended no problem, please add your name to the list below by the day before if you are coming! It would be much much harder to add people to the table on the night who turn up (than the normal pub) and I want to ensure everyone can all sit together.

    Short and direct!
  13. BMW M5 Review

    It's ****ing magnificent.
  14. 2007 S6 MMI screen failed?

    When you removed the old screen, did you power it up at all? Did anything appear on it? Have you got VAG-Com to plug into the car and do some tests, check for error codes etc? With regard the rest, with my S8 (same V10), one of the previous owners removed the silly little engine flaps in the inlet manifold to avoid future problems. And he got it coded to cater for it too. Fuel rail pumps - very rare for them to go. Again, check VAG-Com for error codes on it (it can check the parking sensors too). One thing though, I always used Shell petrol in it, no supermarket, Esso, Total etc stuff was used, so might be worth putting in soem Miller's fuel additive see if that clears stuff and a new fuel filter. Hope that helps?
  15. MK Meet - Weds 3rd July

    Weather was so nice that we ate outside in the garden, the circular benches with six seats working perfectly! Next month, those present agreed to another curry in Buckingham - Weds 7th August. I will post the thread in plenty of time - don't want anyone turning up at the wrong venue!

  21. Wednesday 3rd July, 6:30pm onwards at Ye Olde Swan, Woughton on the Green, Milton Keynes, just off the A421. Ye Olde Swan has been our home for more than 2 years now: lovely outside garden area which we enjoyed over summer 2018, cosy 16th century core for the colder half of the year (no Disney windmills here!) plus most importantly really great food! Failed to update last months thread before I headed south to Le Mans, so rather than post the couple of pics I took and a follow up a fortnight late, I thought I'd just post next months thread instead, group pic below (again we were dotted around the car park a bit). Monthly meets now through British summer time at our regular 'home' pub - with a possible curry thrown in August, that is down to those who attend to decide! 6:30pm onwards, any enthusiast welcome, not just VAG and / or Porsche! Usual suspects please post your interest, potential MK meet newbies please post below so we can look out and welcome you. The meet is posted on RS246, Audi SRS, the S2 Forum and TSN. Table booked for 7:45pm, number required before the night, hence the roll call below....

    You might have thought he'd know he can't/shouldn't drive a manual..... Oh well. People!
  24. 2002 996.2 3.6 Coupe

    Wow - a year since I updated this thread! Didn’t go to the Nurburgring (ended up in hospital instead), replaced a load of brake hard lines, did a trip round Scotland, had a big service, new tyres, general bits and bobs. Was supposed to be selling it last weekend but the guy came down, loved the car, the paperwork, everything but it hurt him to drive it as he has to have an Achilles operation on his left foot so can’t drive a manual. Given my car had a recent clutch and it’s the lightest of all the ones I’ve driven - the mind boggles! Oh well, at least it’s clean - anyone want a properly sorted 996?
  25. 944 Turbo S - Project Time

    Engine is pretty much back together and going back in the car in 2 weeks. Made lots of “while you’re in there upgrades” and also a big saving on machining costs so budget wasn’t completely blown (maybe 20% tops - ish). Lots of geeky pictures on my phone of various engine rebuild stages but this one is the satisfying one:
  26. MK Meet - Weds 5th June

    A bit late to the party but I'll be there tonight, looking forward to it after missing the last one!
