      I'm John. I have a black 4 door base, and I live on NE side.
      Post up your details... I think we could organize a meet/photo op with all the R colors.

      ^ Do you post much on EAG?
      My username is "john" on there.... just like IRL.

      We'd need white and red to round it out... not sure there is a red car in the EAG group.
      Maybe we can find one here.


      I know we have Toeball and TLud around... both with blue cars.
      I forget rejean's screen name.. I *think* his R is white.

      He is def on EAG, but I don't know him personally.
      I thought he posted some pics on here of the car.. thread title was "Another Ruined R" or something like that.

      Maybe we should take over a part of the lot with the Rs at the next EAG GTG.... or.... at the C&C the following morning.


      BTW, which one of you is behind the Houston R facebook group?
      I can't link to it at work.

      Gingaskunk, I'd love to hear your car at some point and take a ride.
      I'm not sure what I want to do to my car from here.

      Part of me wants to stay stock in the event I go BT in the future. (DP and intake can't be used)
      ~$1k+ of my stage 2.5 parts would be wasted....

      Another part of me thinks I'll likely never drop the $$ for a BT into this car, and hence I should go stage 2.5 ASAP.



      Maybe a ride in a stage 2.5 car will help sway me one way or the other.

      It looks like 8 of us have chimed in here.

      +

      Toeball
      TLud
      Rejean
      who else??

      Given how spread out Houston is, I'm not surprised we don't see each other in passing too often. Toeball and I live in the same area, and I have never seen him unless we had planned to meet.

      Hello everyone, another Houston R owner checking in. Picked it up on Aug. 10th and I absolutely love the car. I've been modding and racing (a little) Mazda RX-7's for about 10 years now and I'm looking forward to doing the same with my new toy. Also looking forward to meeting some fellow locals.

      -John

      Good evening! My name is Griffin. I live in west Houston. Picked up a loaded 4-door rising blue earlier this month. After selling my 2004 R32 (with regret) and driving an Infiniti G35 for the last 4 years, I am happy to return to VW. The G was a nice ride. The R is something entirely different.
