Hope everyone is having a GReat Monday! I placed a deposit on a car Saturday and cannot be more excited (4th in line apparently). Its gonna be a long summer...

Where are you from?
I'm from Raleigh, NC but grew up in Chicago.

What's your current car?
I currently drive a MK7.5 Golf R Manual I am planning on trading in for the Corolla. Some of you may view the GR as a downgrade. To that I'll say: 30-70 torque split, wide-body, pull-style handbrake, Rev matching. 'Nuff said 馃槑
I love my Golf but the GR is everything I want.

What are your hobbies?
I like to golf and mountain bike and am an avid sim-racer. I'm a huge baseball (Go Cubbies) and Formula 1 fan.

Hope to meet some of you and see some cars soon!

Welcome from a fellow Raleigh resident! Which dealership did you make a deposit with? Have you ever taken your Golf R up to VIR?
I gave my deposit to Fred Anderson Toyota of Raliegh off Glenwood. I went to Hendrick in Apex first because it鈥檚 closer to me but wasn鈥檛 ready to give them a non-refundable deposit.

I have taken my R to VIR! I haven鈥檛 tracked it in a couple years because it鈥檚 my only car and don鈥檛 want to deal with the additional maintenance.
