    Just thought I'd ask if anyone would be interested in organising a meet up someday. Seems that meets are a thing of the past these days lol I remember having 1 for few local Civiclife members before the forum died.

    Know a few folk on here but still haven't met so would be good to put a face to the name. Thinking a mutual halfway location. Service station or something?
    Cheers :)

    Id be up for this but ive decided to keep my EK off the road until after winter now. Maybe if there was someone nearby who fancies it or ill roll up in the daily :lol: either way it seems a good idea to me, as you said there are a few people on here ive yet to put a face to the name :nice:

    Whereabouts you located mate? @AzAc54 trying to find a mutual distance for everyone

    Ah that's a shame your ek is off the road! Lol doesn't seem like meets are a thing anymore unless I'm out the loop. Not counting local mcdonalds crews etc

    Im in Worcester bud yourself? Im normally miles from everything unless there are some local lads Birmingham way. Yeah I know, ive not long finished K swapping it so I want to double check everything and do a few more things before I bring it out, plus it saves the rust setting in haha. Ah I dont even count the McDonalds lot as a meet or crew, generally just idiots.. ill await someone saying they go their for meet ups now :lol: I dont bother with a lot of so called meets, usually just someone claiming their car 'group' are holding a meet in a local car park and it turns out to be 17 year olds or the v dub boys, not for me thanks. I wish there was a proper meet up for us lot whether it be monthly or just a meet where you have to be in the know instead of having anyone turning up.

    @AzAc54 ahh I remember speaking to you before mate. I'm in stourbridge so not too far just up the M5 from you. Fair enough man! Would be awesome to see it on person. Never been in a k swapped car before lol
    Hahah yh the mcdonalds crew are just chavs trying to look cool lol ironic that I went past my local mcdonalds today, and saw 4 corsas and a fiesta lined up lol yh I'd like to try organise something for us members like a small invite-only meet. Nothing too big, more low key so less idiots turns up lol

    I have a couple guys on here interested. Some of us midlands based, others down south east. Any location suggestions? Motorway services or something

    Yeah I remember talking to you as wel dude, not far at all. Haha neither have I and ive added the usual mods like ported RBC 70mm TB etc so im looking forward to it! A meeting point requires more feedback from others just incase half of us are north and the other half south for example :lol: Id be up for organising something invite only to stop the masses turning up, like minded people and enthusiasts only :nice:

    @AzAc54 that'd be awesome man! I'm yet to see what this k20 swap game is about. Getting quite popular now.
    Sweet sounds good. I'm looking at Cherwell services or Towcester services. There looks to be some parking spaces we could line up in. Just after mutual spot.

    Thinking 30th Sept or 7th Oct hows that for everyone or no good? Sundays
