      I saw a beat up TR Mk3 GTI in a garage, a CW MkV R32 in the driveway along with another black Mk3 GTI, a MkIV DBP R32, a CW GTI in the road with steelies on it (wonder who that was), and a 98 Audi 1.8T 5MT Quattro.

      Oops, this was at my friends house.

      We had a few VAG cars at his house.

      no damage, when it left. it was parked in a tow zone outside the chase bank, so the tow truck made a u-turn and hitched it from the rear and took off down wabash. Prolly will have some serious scratches from the impound lot though

      Well, the house I was at was off of Haligus Rd which is off of 62 in Huntley, but yes, Dymtro with the Audi is from Algonquin. I believe it's pearl white.

      It's a 98 with Unitronics Stg 1+, intake, test pipe with a catback making it a TBE, 18" black summer rims and 15" stock rims with all seasons for the winter, no HID's.

      Have you seen the car before?

      thats right down the street from my job, i thought awd cars can only get towed via flat bed or the drive train would get destroyed

      I saw a lot of VW's today in Chicago area, while heading to City of VW for APR Stg 2.

      On I90 east, right after a toll, about 3 or 4 miles before exit 44A for Riggly (sp) Field, I saw a UG MkV GTI with the DRL's on and it looked lowered and maybe Votex? I tried to slow down, but it looks like you exited soon after. This was at about 12:30 this afternoon (12/17). I was in the CW GTI lowered on winter steelies.

      I also saw a DBP MkIV R32 with stock Imola's on it and perhaps exhaust being serviced at City of VW when I was leaving. Clean.

      At about 2:30, right by 83 and on Rt 12 near Autobarn MP, I saw a BMP GTI with black rims on it. You flashed your flash to pass headlights at me a couple times. Looked lowered? Nice ride.

      Then at about 2:40, I decided to head the other direction on 12 (east I think) to go to Wendy's and I see a TR MkV GTI heading west. The driver was staring me down as he drove past me.

      Finally, when I got back to Autobarn MP at 3:00, I see a porter pulling out another BMP GTI with winter steelies on it; I'm not sure if it was the same GTI that I saw at 2:30. It was lowered.

      Trying to remember what else I saw. I saw a few Beetles, some nice T'Reg's, a Eurovan on I90, Conrad's MkV CW GTI, and a bunch of MkIV's.

      There's a lot more VW support in Chicago area than the far suburbs.
