You'll often see other groups at the same events anyway.
Apart from A8parts who are pretty much purely A8/S8 (D2, D3 and D4) there's AudiSRS who are fairly active: http://audisrs.com/index.php and the S2 forum that you presumably know of http://www.s2forum.com/forum/index.php

Overwhelmed. It's got comfort, performance, speed power and even reasonable on the fuel if your sensible. Also took a chance on the colour which 100% paid off. If I could criticise anything it would be the technology would not be up there with the likes of a new Q7 but then a plus model is more than likely the end of a model. There will be a new a8 and a9 but I doubt it will come with a 605 bhp V8 secondly it's so smooth it's deceiving so it does not feel as insane as it is. But it is the quickest thing I have owned.
