  1. New pants please

    Doh, they fail to realise a T junction is over the brow!
  2. MK Meet - Weds 4th Oct

    Great to see y'all! Attendance understandably not as high as the peak of summer, good to catch up with those present, awesome food again. No pics - was overcast and getting dark at 6:30pm! Current plan - next meet Weds 6th Dec, then in 2018 resume meets again from April onwards monthly. Pub anticipate being busy Weds 6th Dec, and require the number the day before which is completely fair: I'll post Decembers thread well in advance, please post if you can make it, I don't want anyone to travel and not have enough seats at the table
  3. Wednesday 4th October, 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 the last year now: lovely outside garden area, cosy 16th century core now we are entering the colder half of the year (no Disney windmills here!) plus most importantly great food! Great to see y'all last month, particularly great food and service we thought. They put us on a different table last month, still pretty much our own private room like the last 12 months, but an even nicer spot we thought, so we have asked for the same again next month. 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. 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.

  7. The £1k mobile phone

    That's impressive! The batteries in the 6310 used to last for days. Great car phone!
  8. The £1k mobile phone

    Now that I do agree with, they are definitely seen as a fashion accessory, the latest thing to have, buying into the brand etc And I agree if I tried to 'work' on a Nokia 6 with its budget processor it would probably (certainly?) be useless. I'm either on work Lenovo or home Dell, so no need to 'work' on my phone Off topic, was having a clear out and found my 8210 and 8310 the other day!
  9. The £1k mobile phone

    £1000. No thanks. Some interesting comparisons here..... iPhone vs phone quarter of the price. The screen comparison is scary! https://www.cnet.com/uk/news/iphone-vs-cheap-android/ I'm currently debating downgrading to sim-only when my current two year contracts ends in November and buying a handset myself. Or just keeping my current one!
  10. Post a pic of your car

    Bloody hell. Did a little bit of poo come out? Glad you are okay. Surprised you didn't let go of the wheel as you didn't hit the wall? That immediately reminded me of a Caterham video from 10+ ago, Jackals Forge, used to do some awesome videos in the days before Youtube where you had to actually download videos before you could play them! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PQIhXrrk1_E
  11. MK Meet - Weds 6th Sept

    Great to see y'all, great company, and particularly great food and service this month we thought. They put us on a different table this month. Still pretty much our own private room like the last 12 months, but possibly an even nicer spot, so we have asked for the same again next month, Weds 4th October. Apologies its taken a while to post pics. Finding time to wipe plates, and then found the usual photo album attached to Audi SRS wouldn't let me upload!

Our new home is Ye Olde Swan - lovely outside garden area, cosy 16th century core (no Disney windmills here!) plus most importantly great food! 9 attendees was pretty good in August considering it rained from about 12 noon onwards.

  14. S8 V10

    Holy crap! You mad man! What a sensible place to put your redundancy package. So we might have two V10 S8s at MK at some point? That would be an awesome sight. Lee just had a Milltek non res fitted to his, unfortunately I'm certain he is away tomorrow Pop your name down if you can make it, aim for the north end of the car park, the four spaces by the red arrow in the meet thread pics are the widest and longest!

  17. MK Meet - Weds 2nd August

    Great to see y'all! 9 attendees - including a guest appearance by a lesser-spotted SK in a car painted in a colour that even Stevie Wonder would spot - was pretty good considered it didn't stop raining after about 12 noon. Sorry, no pics, check out last months if you haven't already under glorious sunshine! Early arrivals Jamrowls Nik and myself took shelter from the perma-drizzle in Lees D3 S8 (Milltek sounds epic!) trying our best to reenact the opening scenes of Ronin. Although none of us were sick on this occasion I hasten to add...... The noise the three five-pots and Lees double x five pot made as they roared off into the night and onto the dual carriageways was awesome, sounded glorious from the pub car park! Next meet Weds 6th Sept.

  23. MK Meet - Weds 5th July

    Apologies for time taken to post pics - PC-less atm, and unable to remove plates via mobile or my wee Samsung Netbook with no mouse! And I figured I might get some strange looks doing them at work, hence they had to wait until the weekend Great meet, superb turn out, 11 people in the end including one who dropped in en route from Manchester to London! Pub was BUSY - busiest I think I've ever seen it. And I've been going there a few years now, typically in the summertime, before we moved the MK meet there around October last year. No chance of getting a table for 11 outside, hence we stuck to one we had booked! B7 Exclusive Nogaro Blue. Believed to be the only B7 RS4 (all three bodyshells) factory painted in this colour
  24. Weds 5th July, 6:30pm onwards at Ye Olde Swan, Woughton on the Green, Milton Keynes, just off the A421. Our new home is Ye Olde Swan - bags of outside seating if the weather is like last week, a cosy 16th century core (no Disney windmills here!) plus most importantly great food! Good turn out in April May + June so far, and a good mixture of cars lately too. Last month, a mixture of practical daily drivers / an electric car / a C7 RS6 / a 300,000 mile Audi / an air cooled 911! Table booked, 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.

Congregate at the north end of the car park, the four spaces by the red arrow are the biggest for A8s + RS6s etc. Unfortunately the drizzle started not long after we arrived last month and turned to rain around 7:30pm, hence we went inside, no pics!
