Today on Florida Ave, saw an Alpine white MKII GTI 8v with black big bumpers and square lights upfront.  Looks like the Big bumpers were added recently  Smoked rear turn signals also.

  Black Mk4 GTi with Kamei front grill at Best Buy in Brandon, think it's an employee. It's the second black Gti in a week that I've seen with the same rims that my GLI has. The other one I saw on Fowler last week and I talked to the driver at the stoplight at 56th? anyone on here I wonder?

I saw this today, most likely not a member, but a somewhat rare VW, an alpine white MKI Jetta 4 door.  Had the same rims as my parents old Jetta, but was rusty in the rear, still I saw one...

I'm not sure, it didn't look that bad in person but I would have kept them stock.  He was a nice guy though, stoped to ask about the dual exhaust on my car.  I assumed since his car was posted on here that he was on the forums quite frequently....
