If you happen to see a TR MKVI GTI with Detroits and the license plates saying "DAIHARD," give him a wave. He will most probably wave back at you.

No wave, nothing which I thought was odd since I was also in a TR 4Dr GTI...

Then when her lane passed my lane I saw in big stickers on the back hatch that it was a loaner car for one of the VW dealers up here... A GTI as a loaner? Wow. She must have normally driven a Jetta or something else lame not to notice another MKVI GTI on the road trying to let her catch up.

Honestly when I see GTI's up here..old people are driving them!!!!

Saw a 2010 United Grey GTI (5-door) in the 24-hour Fitness parking lot in Lynnwood, right next to Alderwood Mall. Good to find a fellow GTI owner up north...

I always see a CS Gray one in the Bellevue Whole Foods.

But now MK6s are everywhere, it used to feel like I was the only one.

I still rarely see MK6's, let alone MK6 GTI's, today. It may be different on the more affluent eastside (i.e. Bellevue, Redmond, etc), but here up north, I'd be darned if I saw one MK6 (GTI or not) per day.

Amen to that!

In tacoma I even rarely see MkV's driving around. However I did happen to get lucky and see my first MkVi today ever in 2months of having mine.

Was a 2 door red going south on I-5 near 72nd ave.

Hey daihard, can you put up a pic of the 35 tint on your ride? Want to get an idea of how dark it looks with the red. Also, where did you get it done and how much if you don't mind me asking?
