    1. Ian_C
  3. Wednesday 6th June, 6:30pm onwards at Ye Olde Swan, Woughton on the Green, Milton Keynes, just off the A421. Ye Olde Swan has been our new home for over a year now: lovely outside garden area, cosy 16th century core (no Disney windmills here!) plus most importantly great food! The last two months have both seen double-figures turn-out, some nice cars and the food has been as good as ever too. 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, we anticipating wandering inside around 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 Gutted James has sold his RS6. More pics in last months thread (although please post in this thread not last months!)
  4. RS3 - Saloon!

    Yep..... just been out to take what could be the final photos of the Golf R, just coming up to 42k miles A7_00769.jpg by Rizvan Hussain, on Flickr A7_00758.jpg by Rizvan Hussain, on Flickr A7_00721.jpg by Rizvan Hussain, on Flickr A7_00713.jpg by Rizvan Hussain, on Flickr A7_00714.jpg by Rizvan Hussain, on Flickr A7_00719.jpg by Rizvan Hussain, on Flickr A7_00747.jpg by Rizvan Hussain, on Flickr A7_00757.jpg by Rizvan Hussain, on Flickr

    Bollocks. Buy an RS6 and live in it.

    House has to come first!
  7. Last week
  8. RS3 - Saloon!

    Sure is
  9. RS3 - Saloon!

    LOL - it's always dangerous to test drive more expensive more exciting cars!
  10. RS3 - Saloon!

    A quick update folks, test drove a standard 67 plate M3 earlier today (3k miles) and it has far exceeded my expectations. I had it for an hour, so gave me a good chance to test it out, wife liked it too although she’s not happy about the cost, lol I’m really blow away buy the whole package, noise, handling, grip, steering and performance, still got a cheesy grin from ear to ear. When I got back in my Golf R, the whole M3 experience has it instantly highlighted the massive differences, the Golf R in isolation is a great car but once you’ve driven a M3 your view changes, mine certainly has and it’s like kind of taken the shine off the Golf R. Unfortunately I can’t commit to ordering until June 22nd so will have to wait a little longer but I’m certainty going to do the numbers so I can get one. So after 13-14 years of avoiding RWD cars it looks like I’ll be getting one, completely sold on the idea. The car is EPIC.

    Have I missed where you said what it is? AMG of some sort?
  12. BMW Ad Banned In the UK For Promoting Dangerous Driving

    I thought I would try something. The Premier Inn advert with the wheel spinning Mindeo in a Starsky and Hutch'esque style. I complained about it for promoting dangerous driving, as they wheelspin and screech around the corner. My complaint was dismissed. They did not see it as dangerous or promoting dangerous driving. , yet it is the most brazen ad for dangerous driving. None of the specific car ads have screeching tyres and hard cornering, yet are banned. An utter farce.
  13. Crazy isn't it, hopefully it got more coverage being banned than it continue to be showed. Anyway just going to wrap the kids in cotton wool... not.
  14. Dangerous my arse. I should send them a few of my race videos.
  15. One person takes exception to an advert, makes a complaint to the Advertising Standards Authority and it's ban claiming that the ad promotes dangerous driving.
  16. GLC 63S

    Yep. The sides of the wheel are "Dynamica"/alcantara, and the seats have the same fabric running as ribs in among the leather of the front seats. Also, just like Porsche - the front headrests have the AMG Affalterback logo (the circular one) embossed into them.
  17. GLC 63S

    Nice. Like the interior, much better than the old model...
  18. RS3 - Saloon!

    Indeed. In these days of Mercedes Audi + BMW all copying each other (BMW just launching the X2, the answer to a question that absolutely nobody asked) I cannot believe BMW have left Audi and Mercedes to have their own way with the ballistic petrol estates?
  19. RS3 - Saloon!

    A grass bank, great going .... I have checked the weather for Saturday, and it should be dry / sunny Really looking forward to it as the only other RWD car I have driven was my cousins SLK55 AMG many years ago. Hopefully BMW UK stock has some highly specced examples left, I think a bright individual colour is out of the question but we'll see.
  20. RS3 - Saloon!

    A car salesman’s favourite manoeuvre lol
  21. RS3 - Saloon!

    TwinSpark didn’t so much do a U-turn as reverse park it up a grass banking off a damp roundabout on the test drive.
  22. RS3 - Saloon!

    Haha, I think I will just use the wife's Polo in winter! lol Hopefully the numbers add up on Sat for me to get one. I am going to aim high... ask for 20% discount plus the £2800 deposit contribution on 0% finance over 48 months. :D lol
  23. RS3 - Saloon!

    Don't forget to ask about winter tyres
  24. RS3 - Saloon!

    The excitement is already bubbling....... lol
  25. RS3 - Saloon!

    I doubt I am going to make a u-turn and go with the Audi RS3, BMW's 0% finance + discount is just too hard to ignore. Need to take the test drive and then get number crunching to see if everything adds up. Still very bad timing due to the house move but the 0% finance offer may end June 30th.
  26. RS3 - Saloon!

    Who remembers when TwinSpark test drove a Honda S2000? (Before ultimately buying a Boxster with the wrong engine and wrong transmission)
