  1. MK Meet - Weds 7th June

    1. Ian_C
  2. Weds 7th June, 6:30pm onwards at Ye Olde Swan, Woughton on the Green, Milton Keynes, just off the A421. Posting this a bit earlier than normal, day off today, hence having an admin day! As more than one person has tried to arrive a week early over the course of the last year, please note the meet is Weds 7th June - NOT the Weds in the week of the the bank holiday / half term / last day in May. Our new home is Ye Olde Swan - bags of outside seating for the summer, a cosy 16th century core (no Disney windmills here!) plus most importantly great food! Good turn out in April + May in the welcome daylight following the clocks changing, nice variety of cars, a good showing of quattro Audi Avants in May. Table already booked for 10 people @ 7:30pm, number required before the night, hence the roll call below.... 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 - even more so given the new venue! The meet is posted on RS246, Audi SRS, the S2 Forum and TSN. 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. Forgot to take pics last meet sorry - archive pic from June 2007 showing the variety of attendees! And three of those cars are still with their respective owners 10 years on!
  3. MK Meet - Weds 3rd May

    Good turn out, great to see you all, shame the weather wasn't splendid! The two RS6s present with Akrapovic and Milltek non res sounded glorious upon departure! Once again we liked the food and service, table booked Weds 7th June, 7:30pm, 10 people

  8. Another new S5 ordered

    Search in the Audi sections of this forum.
  9. New pants please

    Nice! Almost looks like a foreign driver who is driving on the rhs of the road, not the lhs?
  10. Ignoring the current tenant issue for a moment, my main concern with a BTL would be to make it as tax efficient as possible - even more so post April 2016 Avoiding the 3% stamp duty surcharge, avoiding/minimising capital gains when you sell in the future, avoiding/minimising income tax on the rental, avoiding/minimising inheritance tax if you have children etc
  11. Another new S5 ordered

    Saw my first S5 (B9) on the road yesterday, very nice.
  12. Carwash Spots

    That's a late 70s early 80s Aston Martin V8 Vantage. Like the one in the Bond film 'The Living Daylights'
  13. MK Meet - Weds 5th April

    Great to see y'all. Next meet - Weds 3rd May.
  14. Unfortunately. So true. Gone are the days of Audis being special. The S + RS products are mass produced nowadays. Some serious reliability issues with the current RS6 + R8 cropping up too
  15. Another new S5 ordered

    Even more so in blue!
