Is this owners club still active?


Recommended Posts

Tidy up I think,

Interior is looking it's age but no holes or tears, rust on an arch and around boot handle.

More mechanical really, suspension knocks over bumps, but drive train is sound. I pad 1k for it so didn't expect a sound car

Facebook groups are slowly killing off forums it seems sadly... this is a massive shame as Facebook Groups aren't really the best platform for sharing info etc in my opinion...

 

I too recently joined here as I wanted to share my VR6 build and also get some info to help me sort the turbo conversion as a lot of this seems to be difficult to track down or ambiguous at best

 

Hopefully there is still enough interest to keep it going though :)

I have been active in the VAG tuning world for over 12 years mostly on the Audi Sport forum (given I own an S3) and the decline over the years has been very obvious....

 

I generally can't tolerate the FB groups for too long and only tend to dip in and out as needed... biggest issue is as you say all the keyboard warriors coupled with the way that facebook comments seem to "work".... you give decent experienced advice to a genuine question and it gets lost in the wave of idiotic replies from everyone and his dog that thinks they know better...

 

Its a shame really as the communities are generally decent people with a common passion but I guess genuinely passionate people are getting thin on the ground... the 1.8t world is littered with 'experts' these days :(

Glad there's still some old skool lot around! 

 

Can't beat the v6 4 mo or A3 3.2 really, high equipment spec, comfy, grip and an engine that sounds good from the off, let alone if you turbo it with a 'zorst! Might have to delete that statement as others will be let into the secret and prices will go up!

I have been taking perfectly good cars and making them unreliable since I passed my test in '85 lol... old habits die hard... although the S3 has been more reliable than my Mk2 Escorts back in the day :)

 

The Mk4 chassis cars are nice and easy to work on too... arguably the last of the VAG range of decent vehicles that don't need a raft of specialist tools and a computer science degree to fix...

 

That said it is quite nice that you can retro fit newer kit into the older cars with a minimal amount of effort...

 

One of the things I like about VAG cars..
