      Black mkV jetta, tuned exhaust, sounded pretty sweet. Saw last night 11/10 on i-94 headed west around 9:15pm. Wondering why its didnt have wheels or anything but realized it was prolly in winter mode.

      Spotted a silver MKv GTI heading down Greenfield rd in the Milwaukee area. It had tinted windows, a completely blacked out grille [logo, stripe, badge], and black wheels.

      I was in front of them in a silver MKv.
