C5 allroad, the normal go to car; B5 RS4 and B5 1.8 TQ. Hundreds of Audi on the roads here, far cry from 2000 when I bought the 1.8, then you almost knew every Audi driver in the territory. Interesting enough, when we used to have coffee mornings, I never saw the guys who attended on the roads at any other time. Must be a black hole somewhere for the non SUV Audi's to hide.
 
I haven’t seen any other RS5’s around but seen a lot of rs3’s

(Tongue in cheek) RS3's are a bit like BMW 318's around here. Plentiful. Other than the recent(ish) coffee group, a few local forum members and 1 surviving member from the original 2000's group, I haven't run across any other Audi drivers in person in the ACT. They're here but not. Stratified?
 
Nice cars, maybe I missed that show at the Library. From memory we're all consigned to bitumen car parks now.
 
Thanks. The Library show was in 2015. The last couple of shows have been at Pialligo which is grass (of sorts).
 
I was at the 2015 Autofest. Seems eons ago now. Haven't made any of the Pialligo events. The treasury car park has been used for some shows in recent years.

Hasn't been any formal meets for a while now. Read back and you'll come across the last one, probably lunch in Cooma. We had a rush of meetings then everyone went their own way. Maybe one of the social media platforms is being used but I'm not into that so have no idea. Basically I meet up with a few guys usually one on one, arranged privately. Generally a case of common interests prevails. You can try a post to see if there is any response or FB or the like. Other than that, 20 years on and it's a s difficult as ever to find long term Audi owners who maintain an interest.
 
The Canberra German car day is on soon (late Sept?). That might be a good opportunity for a catch up.

Autofest? Haven't been for a few years but will be home then so can make it. Do you have the details?
 
Im still around with my B5. However it lives in the garage now for most of its days as the sq7 is far more economical and practical for daily driving and daddy duties :)

I do keep an eye out for local meets and catch ups!

Looks like the details are on their Facebook page - search for “German Auto Day Canberra”.

Entry for each marque is determined by the owners club for that brand. I couldn’t see anything about Audi but maybe the VW club looks after both brands. Hopefully they’re more accommodating than the Mercedes club who threw a fit the year I turned up in a new C63 and was told that the MB display was open to club members entering the concours event only.

I’m thinking of going back this year (haven’t attended since that time) but probably not in the Audis.

Not on FB so I miss a lot I guess. VW have run the Audi entrants for maybe 10 years (or more) so we tag along as semi poor relations, Audi have usually had a separate parking area though. I was in the MB club many years ago with my Unimog and attended at Rond Ponds in the late 2000's. They have always been a little concourse focused, over an above the MB brand itself.
 
Anyone in Canberra done a carbon clean on a RS5 or any other car ?
