      This is something that I have wanted to do for a while, given the closeness of our forum. With that said, I also have to think of the site as a whole, because if I do one here then other people are going to want one also. No one likes being told "no" if someone else is allowed to do/have the same thing.

      I will create this temporarily and then eventualyl merge it into the FAQ. I will post a link in the FAQ to this thread and then subsequently unsticky this thread from the top of the forum.

      With that said, post in here if you spotted a fellow R32 owner.

      Enjoy,

      - Anthony

      Haven't seen another one in the month that I've owned mine. Good thing! I bought it partly because it was so unique - BMP in Fort Worth.

      I already posted this in the other original thread, but now it's sticky, I'll post it here.

      I've seen a BMP on Rt 2A in Acton MA a couple times. The driver seems friendly, waved every time.

      Went on a bike ride last friday (around 3-5), saw a silver R drive by me. It was kinda funny, I was going uphill (breathing hard, probably looked extremely tired) and I gave the .:R owner a thumbs up. Then, the guy turns around and comes back towards me, and I do the same thing again while still going uphill (it was a long hill). Are you on here? I've seen you driving around before.

      EDIT: The road was Round Hill.

      Hey where is Action, MA? Ha had to bust your chops. I am sure you mean to type Acton! Love that little town. I travel there for sales but not in the R.

      In 3 months of ownership I have only spotted on other .:R - a red one outside Port Angeles, WA

    11. 12-07-2004 12:40 AM #11
      Got my R32 on August 2. Saw a blue one in a parking lot in Little Five Points, Atlanta about three days later. Took a road trip to Utah in September and saw a black one near the campus of Utah in Salt Lake City. And about three weeks ago I drove past another silver one right here in East Point, about a block from my house!

      Off the subject but wanted to mention that I saw a Phaeton on I-85 north of ATL and that's the only one I've seen anywhere on the road.

      Spotted BMP R32 at Sunday River Ski Resort on 12/5 still wearing F1s, but with a ski-rack. Careful dude...

      I have no sightings of fellow .:R32 drivers. Not since I got mine in May or before. That's a good thing!

      I have yet to see another R on the road in my 18000 miles of driving since I bought the car in May...I don't mind one bit...but would like to attent a GTG before my season begins and my weekends dissapear

    17. 12-07-2004 01:39 PM #17
      I see a silver one and and a BMP in carslbad all the time around 5, on my way to the 78. I thought the BMP was Jayo but he lives the opposite direction

    18. 12-07-2004 01:43 PM #18
      In The Woodlands, we have 3. My red, a blue, and a sliver. I have had the pleasure of meeting the other 2 owners.

      Now we just need someone to buy a black, just to round it out.

      Where are the Austin peeps??

    20. 12-07-2004 03:54 PM #20
      I've seen one other R32 and I saw it the day I bought mine. Same color (RS) in the right turn lane of Morris Rd onto 202S in Bluebell PA.

      Since then, I haven't seen another... but I know they're out there.


    21. 12-07-2004 04:07 PM #21
      Seen a TR and an RS in Lexington Park MD recently, you guys on here anywhere?

    22. 12-07-2004 07:01 PM #22
      One of my neighbors has a silver R, seeing (and hearing it) drive through the neighborhood pushed me over the edge to trade in my 337. Saw another silver one w/ temp plates heading east on 90 in early November...I never see any and I was sure I would see more around here.

    23. 12-07-2004 10:20 PM #23
      The very week I bought mine, I saw another silver a couple of times - once in Skagit county (Farm to Market Rd. turning onto Josh Wilson) and then later in downtown Bellingham (on Holly). I thought, "so much for exclusive", but since then I haven't seen another one (2 or 3 months).

      There's a guy that works in the same building as me that also has a DBP. On the road I haven't seen any that I can recall. The monthly GTGs in Atlanta yield at least five.

      There is a nice Blue R32 in the parking lift across the street from the brooklyn academy of music on fulton ave.

      I heard the sound of an R32 for the first time when the attendant was parking your car.

      Very nice indeed.

      I've seen a couple .:R's around Bristol / Farmington, CT area. One Red and one Blue regularly. Not sure if anyone of them are in here but it's nice to see some representation from CT for once. Besides Peppe of course. Keep on trukin!!

      I spotted my 1st R32 since I got mine in October this morning. DBP going under the bridge at Hwy 75 and Bethany Rd. He did not see me at the light

    29. 12-08-2004 10:42 AM #29
      I see a siler R everyday... My Neighbor across my court has one. Pretty funny that we have two on the same street. I must admit however he had his first. Did they ever come in red?? I see a red one in warrington... Unless it's just a dressed up GTI...

      Saw a Blue one parked on Pendleton Street at the University of South Carolina campus in Columbia, SC. Only other R I've seen.

      I saw a blue one heading north on I-79 last Thursday morning. That is the only one that I have seen on the road.

      I saw one other red one this summer parked at a mall one car away from my red one and I have seen a couple at the race tracks. Saw one at Lime Rock last July4 for the ALMS and saw a couple at the Petit Le Mans this past September.

      I passed one at Petit while driving my golf cart to get out to shoot the sunset. I shouted to him that I liked his car and I had a red one (couldnt wave while holding camera gear from falling off cart) and he looked at me like I was crazy or something and was pissed I was passing him in the cart.

      oh yeah, i know where a black magic one lives, and a silver one lives, and i see them pretty regularly. i am a truck driver in Boston so i have the unique pleasure of seeing our brothers and sisters all the time. maybe you can confirm or deny this rumor, i've been told the northeast is the most vw populated area in the country???
      happy hunting

      I would agree in my opinion. The NE seems to be fully loaded with European cars. I see posts from these guys in Texas, their car must stick out like a sore thumb among all the american trucks and SUVs.

      But in addition to the NE being a very yuppie car place, I think the fact that it is AWD makes it a hot ticket up here.
