  • Quick fire random chat

    For those Full Members who are missing the shoutbox whilst Liam performs some essential and tedious sit upgrades, we can use this thread as a random quick fire chat for now!

    Not the same I know, but Liam has been working really hard to convince the new site what we need and want from the old - we've had lots of tech help and input and it's a pain!!

    Most recent threads are - On via a PC this link is at the top - Quick Links, then the drop down and new posts are HERE

    My opening question is a standard British one - not about the weather though!
    Is anyone been on holiday or going anywhere this year?

      Yeah! Derby... for French Car Show! Haha!

      We moved into our first house this year, so with all the holidays taken before our actual move for various viewings, then meetings with mortgage advisers/solicitors etc and then the eventual move it took a big chunk of our allowance from work

      Was great having a week and a half off though! Waiting for fun things like washing machines -_-

      Wings and wheels is next up, so we've taken a few days off after the bank holiday to visit my parents who are now in Norfolk - its quite a drive from Manchester, so whilst we are that way we're heading there. They live about half an hour from loads of coastlines, so we'll head out for some days be the sea! This place is lovely: https://www.holkham.co.uk/nature-res...h/introduction

            Yeah, especially as we booked the days we needed according to their delivery schedule but that went out of the window and we needed to extend the week. At least the weather was good so we could sit in the garden. We moved form a flat to a house, so chilling out side in our own space was nice

            Oh, we're also going out for a birthday lunch to Wiveton Hall, not sure if you have ever seen the TV Series Normal for Norfolk? http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b077ntzg But Mum had a run in with the eccentric owner, before she knew of the series!

            Norfolk is so.... different.....

            The first show is always a bit daunting, like the first day of school almost - new people you don't know face to face. BUT - you do know most from here and we all have a common interest so there's something to get talking about from the start! There's no pressure to have any mods done either, I think a lot of people think they need to have them to be with us on a stand at a show.

            Are there many DS3's near you that you have spotted?

              Thats true, although i have zero modifications performance wise but that dosent really bother me, the small tweeks ive done stickers, plastidip, couple of bits added here and there make the car look quite good in my opinion. It gets people looking anyway

              There are a fair few near me but only 1 with club stickers on. Going to have to card a few i think!

                  Just Centerparcs for me and the family this year. Taking the dog too. Always good for carding DS3's in that car park. I've started doing the lift of the hand acknowledging wave to other DS3 drivers in my area now too, with varying success

                        I've thought of waving out the window to fellow De-Essers, might make up for me driving like an A-hole around town every now and then

                          Ooops, different Ben -_- We only have about 500

                          I'm hoping to see Mike passing me through the airport tunnels and we can high five as we pass each other and look reeaaallly cool... Having done driveby high five, it REALLY hurts. So not only would we not look cool at all, we'd be in pain.

                            I'm stuck with 29 unused holidays for this year and it doesn't seem to change in the near future.
