No its a power run, if anybody offers you a remap under £300 run away!!
you get what you pay for with remaps. done in a carpark no dyno

Right - back on thread

Your top team including your Romping and Raving reporters are poised and prepped to zoom off again on the mad dash across Europe known as the A8/S8 German Annual Meet!

We've all been fettling with our cars (thanks to MikkiJayne) to make sure they are appreciated and loved before the mad romp abroad and mine is now cleaned and undercover awaiting finer skies tomorrow for the trip to Dover and on to Gorinchem in Holland where we are meeting up with Fred (D2 W12 6.0) who lives there.

The plan is for Myself & MikkiJane (D2 A8), CTL (D2 S8) and Delboy (D3 S8) to head across late afternoon to Dunkirk and then Chris AOC (D3 A8 Sport) and Tomas and David (D3 S8 Vossen) will come across Friday Morning Via a pincer movement from Hull to Rotterdam and Dover to Calais respectively before we all meet up in Holland and head off as a convoy of 6 cars!

We have walkie talkies with little or no range so we should all end up getting nicely lost or split up so lets all hope we can keep together. . . . photographic evidence to follow along with updates at all stages - you WILL all be sad you didnt come along and you WILL all almost be able to taste the Zwei große biers when we get there!

Tune in soon for the next medley of madness!. . . . .

You are absolutely right about being sad I can't come along
But I do not dare take my S8 on an extended trip, even if I have a vacation.
The front suspension is really bad. I am waiting for a Meyle kit to replace the old ****... eh.. I mean the old parts

They're even giving trophys for just turning up!

Although you have to drive over 2112 km to get it!

Since when does a picture of me and a beer count as proof?

Awesome that you've made it across the Channel, it was a pleasure to see you here in Germany!

German meet Friday afternoon (maybe a bit early) - every third car a UK car and they even brought their own weather as can be concluded from the umbrellas on the picture!
