      Nothing spotted but figured I would get this message out to the most people via this local thread. Had a buddy get his 17x8 rota grids stolen off his car last night where his car was laying on frame (in a bad way) this morning. They are black on falken 512's, size 225 45 17. Obviously might not have the tires and/or wheels could be painted a diff color. Any word or run across these please pm me. Most importantly I posted this just to let people know to watch out. Happened a little north of o'hare area.

      pulled up next to a BMP MKV slightly lowered I think, on black wheels and blacked out Vdub on the hatch. Gave "V" but was looked at like I was stupid. Just respecting the Ride, no worries. Not everyone does the same.

      Black Audi A5 last night at Snap Fitness in Huntley, fully decked out in Statis parts and wheels, Nissan dealership plate frame.

      And today, a Dolphin Grey looking B8 S4 lowered on stockers and exhaust on Rt 47 near the big construction mess of I90.

      Spotted a CW MKVI GTI with tint and what looked to be APR exhaust headed North on 94 this morning around rt22/Half Day Rd. I waved once as I passed, I don't think you saw, then when I was exiting on 60 you pulled up to the adjacent lane and waved as you continued North.

      Spotted another CW MKVI GTI headed home from work today.. we cruised West on Golf Rd. from the roundabout to Busse in Mount Prospect.. I think the guy lives in the apartment complex there, pretty sure I've seen his car parked before. The CW had tint, and the front plate was mounted in the grill, offset, probably mounted with zip ties. Not the same driver from this morning though.

      Well, it was down by Joliet, so that's quite a distance, all things considered. Course, the owner had Temp tags on the rear, so it coulda just been bought down here, but originated up closer to the city.

      I-55 NB around LaGrange Rd. I was on my way to Treffen and spotted this rare gem of a TDI.








      I was driving my Eurovan and the T5 driver and I exchanged enthusiastic smiles and waves when I pulled up along side him.

      I was checking out your GLI when I pulled into the hotel the day before

      Army plate right? Thank you for your service

      Your GLI looks really clean.

      MKIV? Headed North around 5PM or so? I usually spot this guy during the week, he turns onto Golf and gets onto Rand.

      I spotted a CW MK5(?) with a black hood and pink rims. It was stanced out. That was Saturday around 2pm in Mount Prospect.
