Well,there we go,yet another successful NW meet at the Romper. Good to see plenty of regular members along with a few new ones. Have to say that the food was good as usual(especially the oreo cookie tower!),and with the eception of Gary Cundliffe's chair,we managed not to break anything this time!  May be a good idea to try and get in for food a bit earlier next time,so as to avoid the lengthy delays that some of us had today. Also,big thanks to GaryM for use of VagCom,my car seems alittle more pokey after its tweak.....wiped the floor with an Alfa Romeo 156 that was trying to out do me onthe M58 on the way home! Anyway,as usual feel free to add your views and comments on todays meet. See you all next time....Cheers,Paul.

Glad to hear Paul, advancing your timing by 1.5 degree's has to be done especially as you constantly use Optimax.

I had my own little fun with a Subaru WRX on the way out, he came from the Aviation viewing area as I pulled out of the Romper.

We pulled on the motorway with him right behind me until I put a little
distance in between us [:D] only for him to rip past me in the stretch
of roadworks on the M60 (40mph zone) [N] I'd already shown him all I needed and didnt want to risk my license at the point.

Great meet again, excellent food thought the service left a lot to be desired - 90 minutes wait for desert??

Ah well, the waiter wasnt up to the challenge so we got ours FOC [:D]

No worries though I would take advice from a VAG specialist as to the cause of the problem.

As you say it isnt running right and when I tried a Throttle Body Adaptation with vagcom it just gave an error.

Id be guessing that the throttle butterfly isnt moving correctly.

Hi Folks, just woke up!

Sorry but I can hardly remember much of todays meet, I was so tired! Beddie luckily woke me up and ordered my food as I drove down as I ignored my alarm clock!

Also forgot a jacket cos of getting up late so had to wear a works jacket out of the boot of the SDi! Oh how I looked a fool and it was recorded on camera for you lot to observe- I don't doubt the photo will grace these pages....

Remember busting a chair though...As being the last arrival I got stuffed with a dodgy chair; nowt to do wi' ma fat ass!!

Gaz.

Hi there. It was our first meet today. Although we didn't go along for the food, we managed to catch up with you guys later.

Good job one of you was wearing a GTI logo'ed T-shirt!! as you were just going out of the Romper as we came in getting our drinks.

I brought along Foxy (Phantom) and picked up some of those great window 'mkivs' stickers (exterior type).

Nice seeing you all there, see you again at the next.[Y]
