Default Post your TDI sightings here!!

Well today may have been a record. I saw 4 TDIs on my circuitous way to work. One black A4 Jetta heading south on 13th St., NW, a grey Golf heading north on 13th St., a A5 red Jetta on Clifton St, NW and a green A4 Jetta on Florida Ave.

I was amazed at how many were within on the road this morning.

Guess I should be looking for Tomo driving a different car now!
I'm on the Beltway from Georgia to BW-Pkwy to 50, and the Beltway-the-whole-way back home.

A good number of the new Jettas I see in the area are TDIs.
Hell... We went from a 2 TDI company to a 5 TDI company in 2 months.

I usually see 1 or 2 TDI's on Westbound Route 50 heading into DC from the Annapolis area. Haven't seen any TDIclub license plates on them though.

I drive up 395 and back every day. I see lots of TDIs. They are great cars. I have just over 90,000 miles on an 03 Jetta Wagon. No problems.

What are you doing up here? It's hurricane season and they are to the South. Shouldn't you and Borsi be flying somewhere? Or did you miss out on that all expense paid vacation in the VI a couple of weeks ago

Hey, while I did partake of the USVI "experience", even paradise gets boring after awhile! Besides, my rum cabinet is all stocked up. Actually, the season's been a tad slow thus far, so a few of us came up too fly medevac for a week. Equally rewarding in my book.
