Welcome to this months newsletter.
With nature starting to bud, and the sun seeming to have dusted off his hat, the feel of better weather is certainly in the air. This means that we now have no excuse to be driving round in a filthy car. Hopefully you have all made the effort and are feeling better for it.
After over 18months of searching I have finally managed to find a leather interior, and boy was it worth the wait!! Although I am now not looking forward to the burning legs during the summer, for now though I am a happy bunny.
February saw UK Passats again smash through the 6million hits barrier. We are now sporting over 6,300 members, with 490 new users signing up in the first 24 days of February. Our presence hasn't gone unnoticed by the magazines too. Golf+ are now seeking a feature about UK Passats. We really are going from strength to strength. 2011 sees the 6th birthday of UK Passats so this has been a long, hard road for all involved, but we are not planning on stopping anytime soon, and hope you are going to continue to be a part of this great forum.
March will see the first big show of the year, Ultimate Dubs. For those of you lucky enough to be going, I hope you have a great time. If you are not on the UKP stand, please make sure you pass by and say hello. Remember those of us who are not going are relying on you all to share you snaps upon your return, therefore don't leave us hanging to long.
As the show season approaches UK Passats and its members will try and be at as many of the shows as possible. As we all know though, the current financial climate won't allow some of us (including me!) to get to as many shows as we want to. If you are planning to attend a show and want to represent UK Passats then please start a thread in the shows section and get on board. If you would like to put yourself down as club rep for that show admin will be more than pleased to help you out with getting the banner there etc, contact Antony-vwnutant for more information
May I just say a huge thanks to the current sponsors of the site , without their financial commitment we could not keep the site alive. Please see below for details of a great offer from Autosessive. Rest assured the Admin team will be working with the UKP sponsors to keep bringing you all more superb offers.
Whatever plans you have for March, I hope you have fun and don't forget to keep us all upto date with any mods or adventures you have.
