Towards the end of next week we’re going to be running a VAG mini-theme here on Speedhunters.com. As seems to be tradition now, we’re going to ask for your VW Audi Group-related photographs so we can include your views and interpretations on one of the most popular scenes in car culture.
I’ve personally always felt that the VAG scene is misinterpreted by some, as being a community for ‘hard parking’.
But if you were to spend time within the scene and talk to the people involved, you would quickly realise that there’s a whole lot more than first meets the eye.
Just as a small further announcement, we are still taking entries for the Composition theme which will be revealed next week, but the Nürburgring theme is now closed.
If you want to take part in this theme, you’ll need to do the following:
- E-mail your submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org with the exact subject line of ‘The VAG Theme’.
- Tell us your name, location and a little bit about the photograph.
- Attach the image directly to the email but ensure the image is no larger than 1000px on the longest side.
- Make sure the image is free of any distracting watermarks. Don’t worry, we will make sure you are properly credited.
- Closing date for submissions is Tuesday May 28th.

VCDS, an acronym for "VAG-COM Diagnostic System", is a third party Microsoft Windows-based software package, developed and produced by Ross-Tech, LLC since May 2000. It was once known as VAG-COM. It is primarily used for diagnostics and adjustments of Volkswagen Group motor vehicles, including Volkswagen Passenger Cars, Audi, SEAT, and Škoda automobiles, along with Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles. The name "VAG-COM" derives from the acronym "VAG", the name by which the Volkswagen Group was formerly known.
Yeah sent my picture of my Seat. A brand that doesn't get much attention here. Hope it would be featured.
Just want to say, keep up the good work Paddy, absolutly love these #iatsh themes! you and your collegues at speedhunters are an inspiration to the teenagers among us who love speedhunting! #iamthespeedhunter
"Hard parking"?? Instead of hard partying? Hahahaha I guess that all tha clean engine bays takes time. Also, let's see you race a 1,9 TDI car :)))))) I'm joking, I love VAG scene - DUB and Edition 38 alike
@TheCrudMan Yep, VAG includes Audi, Bentley, Bugatti, Lamborghini, Porsche, SEAT, Škoda and Volkswagen, according to Wikipedia. :P
@JeremyA I'm pretty sure it stands for Volkswagen AG. Audi, porsche, bentley, lambo etc all go in there.
@JeremyA Volkswagen-Audi-Group i'd guess .. sometimes things are just too obvious ;) i know that very well ;)
@RD_Photography1 What kind of country is this that allows us minors to shoot before they drive? ;)
@STIsaac I think that's the point...lol
@JeremyA AG as in Aktiengesellschaft
