Too often people come to SS to report problems with their cars, dealers, or just to vent in general about being an R owner. However, I just wanted to take a post and say I could NOT be happier with this car. It's nice to see others having good experiences, <B>FastR</B> with the compliments he got from the Merc driver, <b>FORD420diesel</b> and his sick 'Ring fun, and <B>oshi</B> with her new R. I just want to thank all of SS for the help and community efforts, and more personally <B>JRL</B>, <B>AthruC</B>, and <B>GiRaff3</B> for their help in making my car what it is today. <p>And now for some pic whoreage:<p>At the darkest, dirtiest time of her life:<br><IMG SRC="http://img16.imageshack.us/img16/7765/p1010170g.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>Trip down to yesterday's TriState Tuners show.

I am pretty happy also with the fact that things R going good with my R. After all the headaches I am finally somewhat content, now to start saving for some mods.

I am glad you are enjoying your R. It does seem that most of us come on here with questions, or bad new, and it is nice that something positive is being shared!<p>Is that Lake Scranton?

Re: (GiRaff3)

I've gotta admit, the more I'm seeing all of you guys with the fender stripes, the more I'm liking them...

Re: (TravZilla)

I agree, I love the Swedish theme with the stripes. Any ideas where I could put something like that on, but a bit more subtle?

Looks good, Richard! Looking forward to seeing it next weekend.<p>The only thing that could have made that better would have been if your car were posing next to Lake Wallenpaupack from the Booze Cruise episode of the Office! hahaha
