      literally every time ive gotten a parking ticket/warning the meter maid has written down "VW GTI" or "VW Rabbit", basically anything other than "VW R32". apparently everyone thinks the badges are fake or something.

      Closed my door quickly and ran for the pavement for fear of losing my citi door/arm/home packed lunch ops:

      The wookie comes growling past... and those tails pipes almost swallow the mirror of my citi golf as it rolls by in anger :crazy:

      Very nice ride bru... very nice sound too!!!!

      My interwebs are blocked from Youtube but nothing beats the sound in person. :hurray:

      Out getting lunch today...
      I pull into a parking space, next to a large lifted pickup truck. As I was getting out of my car, a construction worker was getting into the pickup...

      Him: Is that thing fast?
      Me: Yea, it does alright.
      Him: I love that car!

      Meanwhile, 6 other construction workers are chowing down their subs at a table at the front window. The whole time they are staring out the window pointing and discussing the car... They looked like they were looking thru the glass at a zoo exhibit!

      Random Guy at a gas station:

      Random Guy: I thought you couldn't import an R32 into America.

      Me: This isn't a skyline.......

      Random Guy: Really? It looks like a Nissan.

      Me: It's a VW.. one of 5,000 imported.

      Random Guy: So it's not fast?

      Me: No, it just looks it. Have a good day Sir.

      If your gas cap light comes on even if you think you tightened the cap, try pulling on the cap as you tighten it. Worked for me.

      Blew a tire yesterday... Call my roommate to bring me my spare (air ride, so no spare in the car)...

      Him: "Yeah, I'll bring it to you. Want me to grab the jack too?"
      Me: "Nah, I got that part taken care of"

      He shows up with my spare tire and I 3 wheel the car...

      Him: "Dude, you're car has surprised me AGAIN!"
      Me: "Why you say that?"
      Him: "It's on freakin 3 wheels, how awesome is that?!?"

      Forgot he had never seen me 3 wheel it

      08-21-2012 08:32 PM #462
      This week has been good to me.

      Conversation #1

      Male Coworker: *See's my R32 as my background* "Oh what is that?"

      Me: It's a Volkswagen Golf...it's my other car.

      Male Coworker: "That's not your car."

      Me: "Yes it is."

      Male Coworker: ....I don't believe you.



      Conversation #2

      Female Coworker: *Talking about her next car buying options...Honda CR-Z or Camero*

      Me: "Have you looked into Volkswagen's? I have one and love it."

      Female Coworker: *Laugh* "Anytime I hear Volkswagen I think of those bugs."

      Me: "I promise you, I don't drive a VW beetle" >:-|

      Female Coworker: *Calms down* "What do they even make?"

      Me: *Goes to www.vw.com, goes over all of the models*


      Ultimately she fell in love with the EOS.

      "Maybe it really *is* a hybrid!"

      .....as I dead-stick coasted it off the track and through the paddock area after blowing an oil line.

      Funny, because I have a "V6 HYBRID" badge on the back.

      Happened Friday as I was picking it up from getting it detailed:

      Guy: "Hey, that GTI is super-clean. Did you just get it? Is it a new model?"
      Me: "No, it's a '08 R32. V6, AWD, couple other things"
      Guy: "Really? There's no way they could put a V6 in that little thing, you're bs'ing me"
      Me: "Yah..."

      Helping a friend move things out of storage into his apartment, he had a tall locker that would not fit on the back of his pop's pickup truck.

      Me: I think it will fit in the back of my car.
      Friend: This will not fit in the back of that smurf looking thing you got.
      *Fold down the seats, put locker in, close hatch*
      Friend: (nothing said)

      10-24-2012 02:09 PM #472
      When I was thinking about getting mine decided to go to all the dealerships in the area to continue test driving (even though I had already made up my mind) and haggling on price a little...at an unnamed vw dealer in Latham, and I don't remember the exact conversation:

      Meets me in parking lot as I'm looking around for one...

      Me: Thinking about getting the R32, do you guys have any?
      Salesman: Yeah, we have a few right over here (shows me GTI's)
      Me: These aren't R32's, do you know what the difference is?
      Salesman: Don't think I've seen any of those come through here, but let's go inside and see if my manager knows.

      Walk into the showroom and dead center there is a UG R32 with R stickers all up and down the sides of it, LOL.

      Me: Sir, this car, the one that says R32 all over it, is the one I want
      Salesman: Oh, didn't realize it was different from the GTI

      I went on to explain the major differences, shook his hand, and told him I wasn't buying my car from him.

      I had just bought the car, drove it home. It still had Kentucky plates in Canada and I was filling it up.

      Random Guy filling work truck beside me: Hey is that a real R32?
      Me: Sure is.
      RG: Awesome! (then he asks some question about the engine)
      Me: 3.2L VR6 but this one has a turbo.
      RG: Oh they don't normally have a turbo?
      Me: No, just V6. Stock is about 250hp.
      RG: Oh so how much power does yours have?
      Me: About 450hp.
      RG: Holy ****.

      Then I fly out of there, happy someone already recognized the car.

      Most other encounters are "Is that a diesel?" "Oh god no."
