      I still have not seen one on the road. I've seen 3 at my local dealer, but none in public. That will change before the weekend though, because MINE WILL BE HERE!!!

      I know there are a bunch around Chicago area, but on the South and Southwest side around the burbs I have yet to see one. I see a few R32's around but not many. I know my dealer has sold one other one at this point maybe even a white one by now, but still none have I seen....

      When: Sunday May 20 at around 4PM -ish
      Where: Intersection of 29 (Lee Hwy) and Shirley Gate Rd (Fairfax, VA)
      You: RB Golf R
      Me: CW Golf R

      You were turning onto Shirley Gate Rd as I was waiting for the light to change. Looked like you had darker wheels (anthracite? black?). I waved, but there was some traffic to my left, you might not have seen me. First R sighting in the wild, where the R was moving

      Okay, this is not really an R sighting, but actually an R owner sighting. I was in Newport, RI today walking back to my car, and your dad was hanging around my car. His name is Juan and he said your name is Javier and you are from Canton, MA and your R is black. He said you guys have owned all three generations of R's.

      Portland, OR area:

      Saw my first R in action (only other one I have seen was at dealer waiting to be picked up). RB 2 door doing a nice slow motion turn in front of me in the parking lot by Trader Joe's on 185th Ave on his way to Subway.

      Had dealer tags in the rear window, looks like it came from Herzog-Meier VW.

      Purty!

      Saw a 4-door Rising Blue R in West Boca yesterday, parked in the Shoppes at Boca Greens shopping center off of SR7/US441.

      I was in my Carbon Steel 4-door. Was a little envious at first, since I originally wanted Rising Blue. Looks good.

      Perhaps she's just like most girls and doesn't pay attention to her surroundings.

      I'm thinking the owner must work at one of the stores in that plaza. Saw it again today. Wasn't there when I pulled in, but was parked across from me when I was leaving.

      I finally saw my first Golf R in the wild!
      It was in Houston, Texas taking the hardy toll road towards Houston around the airport. It was a Rising blue 4 door. Maybe tlud? No idea because he was opposite side of highway than me but still pumped to finally see one.

      Im pretty sure the focus st is coming stateside the end of this year...
