      Hey Patrik! I have actually seen you going the opposite direction on Hwy 1 once. I just got my blue R two weeks ago. I drive into Watsonville to work. Sometimes in the morning, sometimes after noon. It seems like I'm driving one of my other cars half the time. So if you see a black 97 Jetta with a Santa Cruz mountain bike on top, that's me. I could be in my 2001 Blue Anthracite Passat too.

      Icantdrive65, I believe I saw you in the Jetta with the mountain bike on top the other day. Since I am an avid mountain biker, I might have been ogling up top to see what rig you're ridin'...had I read this I would have definitely thrown a head nod your way.
      I'll keep an eye out for ya on the commute...3 flashes of the hi-beam means 'let's grab a pint at Brittania Arms in Aptos!'

      Today in the Fan, in Richmond, saw a blue R parked - believe I know that owner, but then a black R tailed me for a while, driven by a nice looking young lady... these damn things are everywhere!!
      actually today was my first R sighting, besides an RDubs gathering or a visit to Larry's house...

      that was me probably. i haven't seen any others in town except for a TR going down midlothian turnpike while i was washing mine at that little self serve car wash. he honked and we waved at each other. aawwwww, that's cute . of course i haven't seen any others at the autox where they should be. you people should be ashamed of yourselves!!!

      I own a black one in Jacksonville, NC. So far I have the only one around. The dealer supposedly has sold two others in town since induction, but I haven't seen them. Surrounding dealers don't have any more either.
      Brings a smile to my face.
      I also saw a blue one in Great Neck, NY.

      Hmmm....I don't remember seeing a TR so maybe it wasn't me. I have a dark blue Santa Cruz Heckler with Fox Talas Forx. I just got a roof rack for the R so the Jetta is pretty much retired.

      The only other R in my area was a Blue one owned by John Larroquette (of "Night Court") in Sun Valley. He moved this last summer. I only saw the car at the dealership.
      Actually, John had ordered a Silver R from the dealership. But then he decided he wanted a Blue one. That is the only way that the dealer here in Twin Falls was able to get 2. They were only suppose to be geting one in. So, I got a good deal on my Silver R - John Larroquette's throw back...

      Hmm...I don't have the racks on my TR all the time. But if and when I do, there'll be a red Santa Cruz Bullit with a DHX 5.0 and Vanilla 125 RLC on it.
      You can usually find me in UCSC or Wilder on Thursday nights riding with the Fox Racing Shox employees!

      Saw a Blue .:R in the fast lane on southbound 17/Hamilton in Campbell, CA yesterday as I was getting off the freeway...

      Saw a Silver Reflex on Boxing Day in Lake Charles, LA - honked, got a wave. My GF saw another SR (same one, maybe) a few days earlier in New Orleans (called me right from traffic - she knows it's my obsession du jour.)

      TOday I spotted a Red R32 in Gaithersburg, MD. Turns out we were both headed for the same CompUSA. Had a great talk for 1/2 hour. He put me onto this site.

      Welcome Don. I'm a relatively new member myself. You will be amazed at the amount of good information exchanged in this forum. I've learned more about my car here in the last two months than I could have learned in years on my own.

      My wife saw a blue R32 downtown Santa Cruz on Tuesday. She thought it was me for a second. Was that you cruzr32?

      Saw a nice and dirty blue one on rte 100, just north of Waitsfield VT on Wed. morning. I was headed the other way in my rented chevy. I hope to drive my own R up to Vermont in the spring/summer and have some fun on the mountain roads.

      Any other .:Rs in MN?

    18. 12-30-2004 11:23 AM #143
      Reflex Silver R with silver tinted windows seen today in US 41 going north in Ft Myers. I spotted probably the same car yesterday in Naples.
      Have not seen any other Rs in the area and then I see 2 in two days!!
      I was in a silver A4 going south.

      Red R32 in Cranston on 95 north going towards Providence RI around 8AM.
      I have seen four, but still missing the blue.

      My son swears he saw me on Montrose, I guess you were the guilty suspect. When I'm in the area I'll keep an eye out.
      Funny, my user name is uberVduber on the dubracing forum, as uberR32 was already taken.

      Well, there are at least two blue ones in the area. Mine, and another one...
      I have seen one red one, and I see a blue one daily
      Not sure if I ever saw a silver or black one, they blend into traffic way too much, unless you go and look for exhaust tips instead of watching the road for idiot drivers.
      I grew up when cars had all sorts of colors, but since I have the blue R32 and it "sticks out" in every parking lot, I start to realize how BORING car colors have become. It's all the same shades of gray/silver/black, some with a tint of green, blue, burgundy. But REAL COLORS? Heck no, just dirty, dull, metallic tints....
      ...unless you come across some S4, R32 or even rarer some exotic sports car in yellow or red.
      It's not just the political landscape that has gotten more conservative, car colors have, too.

      Right behind a dirty t-red on Storrow Drive around 12 yesterday 12/30. Tried to catch up to you to get a closer look at your winter wheel set up but, I was in the Rover aka SLOWVER! You got off at Copley and I was headed towards the Fens.

      When I was in Annapolis MD in June, I saw a Blue R32 too! That would be so ironic if it was the same one. It was nice and shiny and waxy too.
