      Good-looking Black/Atacama 2006 V70R M66 standing out in a see of BMW's at an UDE event at the Metlife Stadium yesterday:



      Saw the owner and his son a little while later; he bought it new and going strong at 232,000 miles.

      Looks good. Silver mitprror caps and some sort of blue bulbs?
      Are those real monoblocks or enkeis?

      Spotted an 06? VR with a stick at the Woodnewton Ontario Cup mountain bike race.
      Stuck around for a bit but never saw the owner. Have to keep my eyes out during the rest of the season.

      Looking at jobs at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute and checking out the parking accommodations (because obviously this is an important consideration when you drive an R )......damn y'all got some sweet rides down there. V50 T5 AWD, 1st gen Honda Insight, E36 M3, 245, 854, C70, some GTIs, tons of other estates, and, whoa, who's this with the '00 VR? Not on sats and what are those above the Volvo badge? High mileage badges?

      One R in a year, already five this month.

      What seems to be an SR with non-original bumper but with Pegs coming off US-6 at High St in Willimantic, CT last Saturday :


      A Black VR with CT plates on I-195 in Storrs, CT this afternoon:

      ^^I love when both parties are on here for these sightings.

      Nice looking, VR too. I bet if you give the driver's tail light a good love tap, the bulb will come on btw. The contacts get finicky sometimes.

      Didn't spot one, but got spotted by a WRX driver, who passed me on the right and gave me a thumbs up, and then slowed down so I could pass him on my left, after he changed lanes to be on the other side of me (I guess he wanted to take in all angles and views).

      Thanks for pointing that out, didn't even see that! I took your advice and it worked! I wonder if all these rough downtown Seattle streets make it look like I've got some weird rear turn signal on given how finicky it is!

      05-06 black sr w/ sport kit and what looked to be gobi. Looked basically stock besides roof racks. Seen on 169 near the center of Canterbury,Ct. first time I seen this one. Looked clean. I was in my black non-sport kit sr. I waved. You did not so I'm guessing you're not in here. Regardless, nice ride.

      Yesterday afternoon in Dunmore, PA

      An 05-06 Passion SR with the rear 2/3 of the sport kit and CO plates (I think I've spotted this one before in the Poconos)
      An 04 Black SR

      Was surprised to see them back to back!

      How common is it for you north americans to see S60R/V70R's? It's very rare in Sweden and I only know of a few guys in my city

      I know three locals in our tiny town that has them and if I go into the city I see them like once a week.
