I drove the R to Toronto for a wedding this weekend and I'm amazed to see so many other Rs here. So far I've seen a silver R with a roof rack on QEW today, a TI grey with atacama in Mississauga, another silver one with a body kit in the middle of Toronto and a black one on a random street. ....it's gotta be the AWD <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"> <br>Is it anybody on this forum?

Re: So many R's in Toronto (tomedkaz)

There are a few, but they are still pretty rare here in TO. I'm surprised to see them when I do. I'm not any of them that you mentioned; the AWD, styling, and rarity of the R sold me....plus we still have an 850 with over 500,000 kms.

I don't see too many. In Thornhill there are two that I see sometimes: A lady-driven '04 black saph atacama S60R with Ti Pegs and a blackedout '06 (or maybe it's an '07) sonic blue wagon. Downtown TO I used to see an '05 black saph and last fall on the DVP I saw a silver S60R (lady-driven, and I was right beside her and honked a few times but she ignored me until she figured out why I was honking and then sped off when I asked her for her number <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/sly.gif" BORDER="0"> )<p><IMG SRC="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v607/field172/S60R/silverR-DVP.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>Just north of TO (around 407/Dufferin St) Ferrari sightings are much more common that R sightings.<p><IMG SRC="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v607/field172/S60R/feRrari_mirror407_.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>This is turning into a sightings post <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/rolleyes.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>LTA<br>

My lease ended more than a year ago, but I still troll here once in a while. I replaced it with a 335xi coupe. <p>Funny, much like LTA Ferrari and Lambo sightings are much more common, but it seems that since i got rid of my R I see them all the time downtown. <p>btw. I might have some 17" lightweight rims if anyone is interestd. Enkei CDR-9 I think. Jim Lill had a set when I got them. <p>

Re: (ibanezplayer)

I think the Enkei's were only available in 17x7 right? What width tire were you running on them?<p>They are about 3.5 lbs lighter than the 17 inch pegs.<p>Cheers,<p>Jeff

I've been in Toronto all weekend and haven't seen any. Seen a lot of Ferraris, a few Aston Martin's, a few R8's and a surprising amount of G Wagons...

I agree, you don't see too many R's around here, In Hamilton, I've seen 3 in total since i can remember. Two were SR's and a vERY nice black, lowered with black pegs VR. In Toronto, i've seen 2 VR's. What is more surprising is the dealer near my house (the only one in Hamilton) has 4 R's for sale.

See them more often than R's.
