Thank you @Proghound for organising such a fantastic day out In the stunning New Forest sunshine! Great to see so many gorgeous A2’s and to meet and chat with their owners. My son and I especially loved the convoy drive into Simply Audi! Now looking forward to Stanford Hall…

This photo shows so well how ride height makes such a difference to the perception of alloy wheel size. Both on 17’s but the silver one on higher than standard springs and the blue one on very very low coilovers.

Steve, I don’t think they are higher than standard?

I’m going to have to check now

I remember Steve going for a longer spiden spring in the quest for comfort. But that was a few years ago so I may be recalling it wrong.
 
All great photographs. One thing that always remains true, regardless of event, the A2 continues to defy its age and classic roots due to its timeless lines. It’ll be the same for many years to come. Closest it gets is the occasional light musty smell, age defined, something I relish from a nostalgic perspective.
 
After watching a tip on wheeler dealers the other night I halved an onion and placed each section in the front footwells overnight. It cleared the musty smell you describe. Evidently it's an old dealer trick to rid the interior of unwanted smells. :)
 
Not something I’d do, I prefer an automotive hint of age and time gone by.

Hi All,
A bit late however, I would like to say thanks for a fantastic day out! I really enjoyed meeting some forum members and putting names to faces! Both me and my parents had a great day.

I'll add some of the photos we got from the event as well.

Courtesy of @Kleynie and his wife, some shots of the convoy leaving the meeting point and, from behind the last A2, en route to Beaulieu. Many thanks for these Ian.

I don’t think we’d win any prizes with those! The sun was so bright it was hard to see what we were actually taking pictures of from the car.

Anyhow, thank you to you Ian
