White Golf R on Weber Road around Romeoville, it was slammed and had an exhaust for sure. Just caught sight of it when it was turning onto a side road.

I saw a really great looking TR Mk VII R today on northbound 294, around 1:00 PM. It was lowered, had euro tails and aftermarket exhaust. I'm guessing it was tuned as well. We cruised together from near O'Hare until I got off at Deerfield Road. Great looking car.

At one point today around lunch time, there was the red MK VII GTI mentioned above, another MK VII GTI (gray), and my R. Talked to the guy in the gray GTI, forgot to ask if he was on any forums.

Driving to work today traffic was backed up on Des Plaines Ave just north of Cermak in Forest Park, and got caught next to a red GTI sport. I waved and he waved back, looked like he was hauling some drums. Those wheels on the sport really look good, first time I saw them in person!

Yesterday, Memorial Day, walked out of Marianos (Vernon Hills) to my TR GTI with my daughter and a blue golf R with RSe10's was parked a few spots away. Dark wheels on the Golf R blue completely changes the look of the car, almost makes the shade of blue appear different. Looked awesome

Been there but I wouldn't say frequently. I have a 4 door TR on 18" gunmetal RSe10's. Blackhawk's plate. You'd only see me on weekends, car pretty much stays in the garage during the week.

Night blue metallic PP GTI with silver VMR's in Aurora the other day. Not sure if they were 710's, 703's or 718's but it was basically the blue/silver version of my white/black car.
