I see all kinds of TDIs on my commute. I very rarely run into any forum members on the road, though...and I'm usually on the 401/400. I see Bill on the road from time to time, but he doesn't work far from me. I see a silver Jetta wagon every once in a while. The gentleman who's driving is, um, smooth up top, and the car is obviously modded. But other than that, it's a crapshoot.

I have plate frames to designate me being on here. So far I've never had anyone wave.

I see and pass a lot of TDI's, none waving or flashing

As John said, I have my TDICLUB plate frames. But no one seems to acknowledge that

I go both west and east bound on Hwy 9 but usually take the bypass in orangeville, and I only travel most often on the weekend to go to my parents.

I see the odd TDI on the 115 but again none wave.

I heard what seemed like a mad silver golf TDI last summer, but haven't seem it since.

if there is someone on here that drives the QEW in the morning from Grimsby to Burlington or beyond and then returns the same route in the afternoon, a guy I work with advises you not to weave in and out of traffic, while glued to the phone and then brake heavily in front of transport trucks. I said "we" do not do that but some folks are tarnishing our image! I am sure Pete (OhMagoo) would agree there are some idiots out there driving TDIs like they are 5L Mustangs!

Its not just TDIs that get driven like 5L's. Its also the parents in the mini vans, with the kids in the back, that pass me on the 401 doing 140-150. Unreal. I could get into awhole rant about it, but thats not what this thread is for.

I have seen a couple of TDIClub plate frames, one specifically on a black Golf TDI at the Price Chopper plaza at Dundas and Hespeler Road (The Delta) in Cambridge and then again northbound on Hwy 24, Hespeler Road. The other one is on my car...a blue lagoon Jetta TDI seen on the daily commute from Cambridge to Burlington with the city lights on
