      No kidding. To have anyone compare the R to anything other than racekar is sacrilege...

      I enjoy a 3rd gear pull now and again.
      just a few days ago my 3yo son said: "dad, you have a racekar."

      now ever time I do it he stops what he is saying and says: "this is your racekar dad."

      I told him it was faster than Lightening Mcqueen. he said "no way daddy."

      Color appeal is always subjective ! My mom says the blue looks like her 82' chevette , Mine will be red, some people say it's more of a girls color , mehh whatever attracts them more to me will only help !!

      My boys (8, 5 and 2) point out every blue hatch we pass and ask if it is an R. I have promised a prize to the first one who can correctly identify an R. So far, nobody (besides me) has. At least the 9 year old is now only asking about Golfs, and not any hatch!

      Don't get me wrong, I am not the least bit annoyed by this, I actually find it amusing. I actually love that the R looks relatively unassuming to most people.

      On the flip side, when I first got my R, I told my wife that people who know what this car is will recognize it as something different and special. She looked at me like I was

      Then, last week, we were driving through a parking lot and she saw a guy doing a double-take and long stare at my car (I totally missed it) and she said, "OK, you were right, I get it now."

      At least she understands now....

      I am coming from a Yellow with black striped Blazer Xtreme, with Vette Rallys on it. So this car will make me darn near invisible....and you just have to love the things kids say....my kids are old and they don't say things like that anymore...

      Rising Blue is a great color, but it has this curse. Lots of econo boxes have a very similar blue!
