  1. Wednesday 2nd May, 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! April saw a return to monthly meets and an excellent double-figures turn-out despite the rather sketchy weather! Food was lovely 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

  12. Ebay oddity / fraud

    Er, I did that on purpose with people accusing me of having an encyclopedic photographic memory......

    Don't you start...... Get your shiny new BMW along to MK! Loved the awesome coloured last one!

    Cruiser, is the D3 A8 you chopped in for the D3 S8 currently for sale? Think I saw it the other day on AT
  15. RS3 - Saloon!

    Opps sorry. It made it home from that trip on the back of a tow truck if it makes you feel any better.

    Look what I just found whilst picking an MK Meet pic from my camera roll.....
  18. Ebay oddity / fraud

    Looks like the advert has been pulled already, that link doesn't open to reveal a listing for sale?

    Apologies if it came across that way, no offence implied. Mint low mileage examples would always command a premium - even back then when they were a few years old. When was the run on Northern Rock? Around Sept 2007? And the recession really kicked in come 2008? I do not disagree that if you owned a CSL today it would be worth £60k+ with sensible miles, however if you'd bought in 2005/2006, you would have needed to held onto it through the recession. It would have gone down before it went back up. Plus as M3Me mentions above, you'd need to run it as a second car to avoid heaping miles onto it, somewhere to park / garage it, insurance, tax etc. The Sorrento green 1.6 behind my Alpine white 1.9 was bought for £1500 with about 30/35k on the clock in shortly before this pic was taken (August 2008). Cannot imagine what that is worth now. A 16k Miami Blue 1.6 is currently for sale for £43k. The bubble will burst at some point.

    Classics and collectables didn't go up for many many years after 2005/2006? The recession f**ked everything in 2008 remember! In 2008 or 2009 (just before I bought the S4) a Volcano Black RS2 on the S2 forum was sold near my parents on the south coast for £6k! Doh!
  22. Electric cars. And tax?

    Oh, great! Would just re-ignite the car clocking black market, By coincidence I was only just catching up on latest on the North America Ferrari lawsuit onclocking cars for certain clients!

    Riz, what percentage / dollar have your dealer offered so far?
  24. RS3 - Saloon!

    As above, its unlikely these updated finance contributions will be rolled out across all dealers before March. The communication only went out last Friday (16th). Audi often have used car events running in March, to get shot of all the pxs that come in, and I suspect more dealers will get on board the new car finance contribution deals after the reg change and the rush of customers have picked up their new 18 registrations. Its also a domino effect - after the first few big franchises publish these deals, everyone else has to follow suit Two examples to get you going though, Hitchin + MK are Jardine Group.... https://www.jardinemotors.co.uk/audi/new-car-offers/rs3-sportback-stronic/ https://www.jardinemotors.co.uk/audi/new-car-offers/rs5-coupe/
