    Greetings fellow VWAF’ers,

    I’m sad to announce that after 10 years, I am resigning from VWAF as both moderator and community member.

    Just as you’ve seen in the films, when one leaves a secretive establishment, they take with them the secrets contained within.

    I’ve grown up on VWAF, I joined as a spotty teenager and I retire as a young father - I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my time on here and loved having the opportunity to help as many charities as we have in that time.

    This week is my last on VWAF and I’d like to thank you all (well, most of you) (probably not Zollaf ) for your participation, support and banter - it’s been a blast.

    Those of you who wish to keep in touch ‘offline’ know how to reach me. (Click email on my profile for those who still don’t!).

    A special thanks to all members of VWAF but the following members (in no particular order) get a special mention for either their contribution to the forum and/or their ability to make me chuckle, which is a talent now formally recognised.

    Crasher - for his inexplicably large brain and wealth of knowledge all things VAG

    Sam (previously mycarsavw, currently mycarsaseat, likely to be mycarsabmw or mycarsamercedesbenz). Was one of the first VWAF’ers I pm’d - a wonderful friendship emerged and has continued to grow ever since. I almost got close to being within 10 miles of his sisters once too. Almost.


    Gupsterg - not so active any more, for reasons I’m aware of but can’t share. You’re missed Gup.


    Zollaf - the only person I know who can reference sheep in nearly any context


    Huweth - This welsh chap left a H shaped hole in my heart when he left - I loved watching his LPG project
    and he was the first ever person to reply to a thread/post of mine. We all remember him, along with hongkongstuey and the donkey guy. Much like westworld, you can’t beat first generation VWAF’ers.

    Chris - A typically annoying Audi driver ( ) who seems to know everything about them. Not quite as annoying as he used to be, hence on the list.


    Jimc64 - we’ve shared a number of heated debates <cough> Terraclean <cough> and for that reason I have a good chunk of respect for him, nothing was ever personal. He’s moved to -ford- Jaguar now so isn’t as active as he once was but if I’m ever in Scotland I’d probably consider maybe visiting him.

    That kitty bloke (currently captain answer, inactive) - the one who changed his name a million times, used to post a lot, was quite funny, had this lovely thread which still makes me chuckle - VW Audi Forum - The #1 Volkswagen Group Community

    Col - If for nothing else, certainly for starting this gem of a thread - VWAF Ex-pats club (CBTD drivers more than welcome)

    Ben - He tried to bury the picture, the thread and anybody who’d seen either but I still laugh when I remember his brown slippertowbar thread. I’m an **** and I know it. Still makes me laugh though

    Marc97 - A moderator who predated my addition to the team but did a lot of groundwork for VWAF and is rarely recognised. Also did a lot of work on the URL vinyls I ran for a short while.

    Bor(a)ing Nick - One of the few members I’ve met in real life. Now a dad with no time on his hands and a beautiful woman at his side. Fair play to you Nick - I’ll continue to stalk you via Facebook, don’t worry

    Phutters - I’m not going to lie. Most of the time, I’ve not got the foggiest about what you’re saying but when I do understand what you’ve typed, I’m usually chuckling away. Never before have I met someone who can use a thousand words to say something most would say in ten.

    MalcQV - He once said he might let me be close to his ferrari. Then I mentioned his daughter and ruined it all. Sorry Malc.

    Combover - for no reason other than his username. Combovers make me laugh.

    It’s a good night from me.

    Eshrules / Carl

    I think it's safe to say I like you like a brother from another mother.

    Won't be the same without you, but I hope, one day, we'll see you here again.

    Peace out, word to your mother!

    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    As this has been announced on the forum without me even knowing it was going to be done, would anyone be interested in joining the team? If so drop me a message... I will then discuss it with the rest of the remaining team...

    Seeing as this came as a surprise to be done like this I would like to wish Carl all the best for the future and thank him for all his help and support over the years..
