Ahhh, that sounds like my commute! Did you notice the "E" (cardinal) license plate and Biodiesel frame? (Don't check the forum much these days ...)

Winner! Saw the plate - couldn't make it was an environmental a first. If you see a silver A5 with Hawks plates - that's me.

How does one go about getting as TDI sticker and plate frame and before some overly important self righteous tube steak tells me to do a "search" - if you put TDI anywhere in the search you get EVERYTHING - if you have 'sticker' in there you get 900 mi. tank, 1,000 mi. tank etc. Just looking for a simple answer.

Thanks in Advance,

I generally try to avoid the Chicago area in my travels, but on my occasional trip through, I usually see several TDIs. The drivers never seem interested that another TDI is driving with them.

Really? I never get acknowledged by other diesel drivers. I spot diesel drivers right away but they never seem to make eye contact! Is it really that hard to spot the most economical car in all of USA, unless there's something else but I dought it :)

When visiting my Mom in Elk Grove (Chicago) last weekend I saw a LOT, and I mean a LOT of TDI's there now. I think it has something to do with Diesel being cheaper than gas in the 'burbs though! (And only $0.10/gal more than here in Iowa). Gasoline is over $4/gal there in most cases. Diesel was $3.79 at the same stations...

Of course on that same trip I stopped in Oregon, WI on the way in to have my timing belt done by JasonTDI. I saw as many in his driveway awaiting injectors (and for other reasons) than I did in Ill.. ;)

I was on the southern edge of St. Louis 2 weeks ago visiting my great grandfather who drives an old diesel merc that dumps enough smoke to blot out the sun. Mine is a lowered dark blue jetta that dumps smoke out the left side. No tdi club badges though

New to the club, but have lurked for about a year since owning my 2012 Jetta TDI. Already have 30k on it in just over a year due to being a road warrior in the sales industry.

I'll be driving through IL a lot the next upcoming months as I have a trade show coming up in October and will be covering a lot of the counties across the mid and southern portion of IL.

Ordered my TDIclub sticker to put on the ride, hope I see some of you on the road!

I am also in Bloomington and would love to see a tuned tdi. Also need to do a comparison to see if my mkv is slow. It sure seems slow, def slower than my mkiv with 455000 miles.

Originally from Mchenry, I am living in Muskego, WI now. I did see an IL plated Jetta with the TDIclub plate holder and the tag "NO NOX" driving through SE WI. Is that anyone following on here?
