Guys, recently bought a SEAT Leon FR Mk3 and looking to revive a Meet. Here's a few location suggestions and dates:

Edinburgh - Hermiston Gate Retail Park
Midlothian - Table Table
West Lothian - one of the Livingston Shopping Centre Carparks
South Queensferry - Carpark overlooking the bridges

Dates:
7th April (Friday Night)
8th April (Sat Night)
9th April (Sun Night)

Comment where your preference would be (other suggestions welcome) and preferred date. Would be good to get half a dozen or more cars together. :)

I'll bring my laptop and VCDS and happy to run Fault Code Scans and Mods/Tweaks.

I'd be interested in this, I organised 3 meets back in 2015 at the Table Table Esk Valley.

This was a good venue, as it has a big car park which is usually quiet.

The Dub Side have a monthly VAG meet at Hermiston Gate Retail Park.

A weekend would probably suit me best, but happy to go along with whatever date and venue is most popular.

Cheers Paul (Bonnyrigg)

Good to see a fellow Midlothian-er Paul. Would be good if we can get enough SEAT owners for a meet. If not then I'll maybe head to the Dubside VAG meet (Wednesday April 5th?) and keep an eye out for you/fellow SEAT owners.

I might make it if on the 7th. I have a leaving do on the 8th so going to be unable to drive then and probably the 9th as well as it will be messy.
No fussed where about. I stay up the road from Hermi but for some strange reason I don't seem to mind having to drive anywhere lol.
Btw I have only just joined and have a leon Cupra St 280 I bought 6 days and 3 refills ago.
I don't know anything about anything on it so everyday shall be a school day.
What days do Dub Side meet as may be available for that?
Cheers, Boab.

Dubside have confirmed they are meeting on Wednesday 5th April at Hermiston Gait Retail park (7pm). I'm going along, would be good to see plenty SEAT owners there. I'll bring my VCDS and laptop if anybody wants things tweaked/coded.

Ok so I managed to miss my train in London so will now not be back in Edinburgh until about half 8 so won't be able to make it to the gate until about 9. Anyone planning on being there about then?

No worries. I'm not home from work yet so will likely be nearer 8 before I arrive. Am picking the Mrs up at the airport at 11pm so will be around for a while.

Also went along. Nice to meet Dodds. Did feel like a spare when I turned up though. Some nice motors and a good number of nice Seats when I left.

Much bigger turn out than I thought. Mostly Mk2 Leons too, about 50% cars there last night.



Good to meet you Boab, will probably see you at the May meet. [B)]
Sorry we missed you @GFF. I could only make it along for about 8:30 onwards.
See you next month?

I was the same GFF. I just got out and asked who's Dodds and finally found him after asking in a couple of groups. Not the most enjoyable experience but it's the only way to meet new folk and thankfully you only have to do it once ;)

If you want the next time we can meet up somewhere beforehand and fire down together.
