When talking about your R to someone who knows nothing about them, but knows cars fairly well, what is the first thing you will tell them about your car?

Or sitting at the gas staion putting in some 93. Then a guy two pumps over driving a Volvo says, " Beautiful car, who makes it?" <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">

It's so funny when folks say, "Nice Bimmer!" or you just catch them staring all over for a make... I took the Volvo off the back and replaced it with a turbo badge (similar to 911 but smaller), so it makes it even tougher... it's fun!

Re: How do you brag? (JOSBRO)

Again, so true. I once had a guy in his mid 20's say "wow, is that the new Acura" <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/zeroforum_graphics/screwy.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: How do you brag? (MASH)

In a time span of 3 years, I've gotten maybe a total of 3 unsoliticted comments on mine. One from a VW Golf driver. One from a McDonald's drive through guy. One from a mom with 2 kids. I guess it doesn't help that I'm running stock and on 17"s. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0">

actually I think the absolutebest compliment I get is the 2nd look. I was walking out of Costco today and there was a guy 2 spots over (the between was empty) in a new Donge Ram. As he was getting into his big burly truck he looked at what the young kid was driving (I'm 31) and then swung his head back around for a good 5-second look-see. I twould have made it better if he would have made a verba compliment but the second glance is always nice.

Re: How do you brag? (PhilUp)

I've had two ladies at my work tell me that I had a cute car. One was from an older lady who drives an S40 (few years old). She quickly retracted the comment with a "sorry, I'm not supposed to say that a guy's car looks cute."<p>My orthodontist assistant (really hot) was following me in for my appointment and gave me a compliment. She even knew it was a Volvo though I debadged my car.<p>Otherwise, usually just stares.<p>I saw an electric silver wagon coming up next to me on Friday and let the guy pull up to me as I was cruising. He didn't even look at me...not even once.

I almost thought this was Zigger's thread after seeing that last option.

If I don't get a comment a week something's wrong. Every other trip to the car wash someone wants to come over an talk about the R, as well as 2-3 times a month at work, and just as often outside the grocery or at any fast food drive thru window. Oh, and my dry cleaners rave over it still, and they've seen it for the 16 months I've owned it. (probably stroking my ego so I keep coming back though haha)<p>What else .. oh a young girl (I'm 42) pulled up on my right, rolled down here window and yelled out NICE CAR, makes you look much younger!<p>And some guy in a little nissan on I-75 actually pulled beside me and started taking pictures with his phone's camera.<p>So if you guys arent getting the looks and comments, wash your darn car!
