    Hello All,

    New to the Audi forum, and didn't see anything for this part of WA State.

    Are there any gatherings around here other than the "Gold's" meet that always gets busted by the cops?

    Something a little more civil and relaxed (Cars and Coffee type stuff)

    I am in the TC and there really isn't anything out here for VAG. I know there is a Porsche meetup at a local shop on Sundays I think, never bothered trying to crash one of those even though I have seen Audi there from time to time.

    I've got a few friends that all meet up, but it's all VW's. Nothing wrong with that, it'd just be nice to have Audi friends. lol

    Maybe we could start something..

    Another friend of mine was thinking just meet up and grab a beer or food at the Uptown or something.

    I am originally from the TC, but moved to Portland almost 10 years ago now. We used to have quite the group of euro enthusiasts in town, but I think many have moved or moved on now. I miss the area. Maybe i'll see you cruising around when i'm in town.

    That'd be awesome man! I'll try and post any gatherings of Audi folk in here so you all can join if you want.

    Any of you going to Leavenworth this year?

    I think there's a few people meeting up to drive straight there - not doing the big 'drive' though.

    Reviving the dead thread!

    draekin13 - I think I see you cruising around quite a bit!

    I'll probably be hanging around the Uptown area tonight if anyone would like to meet up!

    Since it is always Father's day weekend I always have my kids, hard to do things like that with a 6 and 9 year old.

    I've only been once. Last year I met up with some VW folks and we rolled up together. Will probably do the same this year. You're welcome to join!

    AttaZack what do you drive? My S4 was pretty easy to recognize, however I just got rid of it and now am in a 2018 Daytona Gray SQ5.

    Oh yes, I drool over your RS5 every time I see it. I was catching you quite frequently going up Columbia Center on my way to work, you must work in that area as well as I have seen you multiple times?

    Oh nice! That sounds like a good gig!

    We should have a small meetup or something this weekend - @2daystheday and whoever else should come. It'd be fun to meet everyone.
    There's a couple up in the Riata area that has 2 RS5's - Supposedly the gray one is 500+ - I need to meet them haha.

    I got a buddy that isn't on the forum, but is very into Audi's - he just picked up an 01 A4 Wagon.

    I would be down for a meet. Generally best when I don't have my kids. I can often be found at D's Wicked Cider or Copper Top Tap House.

    I wonder how hard it would be to match up the Akrapovic tips (https://www.flickr.com/photos/redlin...rx/9678718925/) with the Armytrix exhaust (https://www.armytrix.com/product/audi-rs5-b8) and get it to run off the Driver Select system rather than the remote thing that it comes with...

    I didn't see anything in the other topics (And I still can't start new threads.. )

    Any ideas?

    I honestly donít see why you could not make it work as the tips are just tips. Should be able to make anything work with some thought

    Not sure you could get it to hook into the Drive Select. Looks like it connects wireless and doesn't tie into the car?

    So Armytrix have a wireless remote, but I think it still ties into the vacuum to move (no servos).
    If anything we could reuse the OEM ones if the aftermarket didn't work how I wanted it. I think the hardest part would be getting the muffler-back of the Armytrix to pair up with the Akropovic - but a skilled exhaust shop shouldn't have any issues with that...

    Also, just got the ECS brakes, hawk pads, and ECS endlinks in today! Should be a good time.
