    I'm into detailing/repairs and keen to meet up with other Audi owners too for a coffee. Any venue suggestions?

    I've done a bit of paint-less dent removal too, with reasonable success for small dents. I use an A4 page printed with black and white alternating 6mm stripes.
    Hold the page next to the panel, and look at the striped reflection in the panel. The dent will show really well, and you can see your progress.
    Push panel from behind progressively with a rounded magnetic tip. It's really a bit like massaging the dent out. I put a really small ball-bearing on the panel which shows where the tip is.
    Tap down the area immediately surrounding the small dent, and it should stay in place. Once you've got it out, light hand buff should restore shine.

    Sold the last car I used that technique on, so I'll do a post with some pics before/during/after, when I do the next one, which is a Silver A4 1.8T with a shallow dent above right wheel arch.

    Nice trial catch up in Canberra this morning. We picked the Pork Belly Cafe near Old Parliament House. Plenty on street parking and huge empty car park right next door. Good coffee and great company.

    Two Stage 1 S3 Sedans and two S3 Stage 0 Sedans.
    Another gathering next month...

    You didn't. It was a trial run.

    recon team didn't know what parking or coffee would be like.

    Recon reports that Pork Belly on a Sunday morning is not too busy and could manage 20 Audi souls. In addition there is plenty parking - both on street and accross in a huge empty car park.

    Ausjacko, IchBautAuto it's mustering time.
    Fancy a full fledged gathering last Sunday in April??

    26 April. Will be back from Darwin and it's a long weekend. Subject to any pressing "better offers" that I may get presented with, sounds good. Will you drop a preferred time closer to the day, either here or PM and I'll see you.

    ........... and why is the car park empty, everyone used to be at work on Sundays.

    Awesome! Count me in. Would love to see some of the mods you guys have done or will do. I know my stock car will be very boring, but will be a sight to see as many S3's as can make it! ☺
