      spotted a rising blue R near the Home Depot in Santa Clara, CA today around 5p.

      So far my spotted totals are:
      Rising Blue - 2
      every other R color - 0

      Spotted yesterday evening during outer Milwaukee area heading south(? don't know how they label direction on this one, we were traveling to back Illinois ) this was around the 94 split heading East.

      RB 4dr didn't look like anything done to her. I was in a Dept Chief's car heading back from Clintonville.

      Hebron, I drive around Vernon every day on my way to work in Enfield. My usual route is 85 to Tunnel Rd to 83. If I'm on daycare duty then I hop on 384 to 291 to 5.

      Also got my R at Langan in Vernon

      What color? I've only seen one R (ScratchRob's R) in the wild so far.

      Wow, yeah that's right around the corner, I take exit 66 to come home everyday. My buddy was saying that he saw one on 291 in RB, must have been you. Mine is a 2-dr RB. The only one I've seen around here was a CW 2-dr, he was coming out of Evergreen Walk in South Windsor. Where did you get your APR done? Tony's? I'm still stock besides taking my soundaktor out, color matched side markers, and Euro taillights.

      Haha, probably was - does he drive a VW? I had a VW driver give me a thumbs up a while ago on 291.

      I was going to go to Tony's but when I called (back in Feb), they were just getting setup as an APR shop and they werent ready. So I ended up at Excelerate down in Branford. It's more of a drive but I dont mind, the guys down there are awesome and I found out that they are actually the ones who "train" Tony's on all things APR, etc.

      I'm probably one of the last stalwarts who hasnt taken the soundaktor out yet. Maybe some day. Heading down next week to get the APR TBE installed and Stage 2+ flash. I would def say get her flashed, makes such a difference. If you can afford it, go with the HPFP too - makes that difference even better

      Saw a DPB 2 door parked in an apt complex on Sloane ave in Lakewood this morning. License plate "WELP". My first sighting besides my car.

      After looking back a page, realized it's CasbahBoy's car.

      haha he drives a mkiv Jetta wolfsburg. Yeah it's really tempting to just get it flashed now, but I don't have a job so I'm holding off. I got smoked by a Honda the other day and it took everything out of me not to just make an appointment. What's the deal with stage 3+ though? I've been looking around on here and some people say it's available and some people say it's not.

      Spotted a 4 door CSG in Elkhart Lake, WI Friday evening before the concourse d'elegance.
      Also saw the CW two door touring Road America today. Das R and I toured our Rs Friday; awesome experience.

      Returning home: saw a RB four door heading north on I-94 near Lake Forest, waived but do not think you saw me

      From what I hear, APRs stage 3 package is not quite finalized yet. I plan on doing nearly everything except the turbo. Gotta leave something to upgrade next year when I am itching for more power again.

      I guess I'll just wait until it's available. I want to just get the whole thing in one shot, but I feel you on the factor of how the car feels slower over time. At first the R felt decent but slower than my other car. I drove my buddy's Autobahn today though and there wasn't a huge difference of a feel in power. Regardless I don't regret buying it at all, there isn't another car out there besides something that's available in Europe that i would want.

      APR has had my car since last Monday. They are using it to tune and finalize the US release for their stage 3.
      They were waiting on the downpipe to get there, when I talked to them middle of last week, but had been able to get some good baseline numbers. They are, from what I understand, trying to finalize everything with the Stage 3 kit, by Waterfest.

      I will more than likely be adding their ported/polished headby the end of this year as well.....

      Sure can't wait to pick up my car. Going through R withdrawls.

      I drove from Orlando to Fort Lauderdale and back on Saturday and thought for sure I would see a Golf R at some point. No luck. In 2 months, I have not seen any other R on the road. I've seen Mike@Forge's golf R twice in front of his shop, but that's it.
