Welcome to this months newsletter.

What a scorcher!! Fingers crossed this weather keeps going. Of course the offset of this will be the inevitable drought and subsequent hose pipe ban.

Well what did March bring? Apart from one of the most creative touches on a Passat I have every seen, yes I am talking about Panel Beater Peter and his B3. Click on the picture above to check it out in full. I finally got Boo Boo built back up. Those of you not familiar with Boo Boo (why would you be?) he is my lowrider bike to partner my car, Yogi. It started life as a £5 eBay purchase, and has been stripped, painted, pin striped and polished to bring it up to its current state....

The excellent striping was done by the same artist who did my cars fuel flap - Psycho Slacker. This guy will stripe pretty much anything! Check out his awesome skills on his recently updated website - HERE

March saw UK Passats leap frog to over 7,000 members! We also had a Q&A feature in Golf+ magazine - THREAD LINK

Ultimate Dubs, the unofficial start to the dub show calendar, took place on the 13th March. From the pictures I have seen, it looks like there have been some very busy beavers over the winter months. A certain B6 on air, now sporting a Bentley interior and rolling on 17's, chose Ultimate Dubs to make its debut. I think this year we are finally going to see Passat's picking up trophies at the 'bigger' shows. The UK Passat stand seemed to be a little shy, even after more people wanted to be on the stand than places. Bad by you!

With only 35 sleeps left until my first show of the year - All Types. I am one excited middle aged bloke! This month will see the house yet again fill with our camping paraphernalia, ready for our first camp of the year. If you are free that weekend, or even just the Sunday, you really should come along. It is a really laid back affair, with a good mix of new and old school. All for £12 for the whole weekend!

Before All Types though, there is a one day show, which has been a favorite on many Dubbers list for many years. Elsecar Mega Meet. This is a great chance for you check out some local metal, and also catch up with old friends. UK Passats will have a club stand there, and all are welcome to join in. Standard or highly modified, as long as your car is a B platform, your in!!!

Well that is enough from me; as the sun is shining out there, and the BBQ isn't gonna light itself. I hope you all have a great month, and make the most of all those lovely bank holidays we have got coming up!

Car Of The Month - March

March saw another rather complete car take the title.

When Mana came into the fold in January 2010, he had no intentions of modding his car in anyway, shape or form. I am sure those are the words of most of us here on UKP. A fair percentage stick to their word, but in Mana's case he has gone completely against his word. First came the HID's then the alloys, followed by an attack with the lowering stick. Next on the 'list' was the interior, full leather and an ICE install to blow your mind!

From all at UKP a massive - Well Done!
