Anyone see that blue R3 in Burlington?

It was listed on cars.com last week at Karmart. Well, I bought it!

2010, Aurora Blue, 40k miles and it's in fantastic shape. It's unbelievable how much sharper it feels than the '05 WWP I sold back to the previous owner. This morning while doing errands to take care of title and stuff, I drove the cars back to back. It almost feels like a different car in some ways.

Anyway, I'd still like to meet more owners in the area. I'm in Duvall, but work in Redmond. With the weather getting nice again, we should plan some meets!

Hey Alex!

I just bought an R3 as well... It's a 2009 Velocity Red... I live in Kirkland, so maybe I'll see you around!

Also, I've only seen 2 other R3's around... A Red one in Kirkland (Not mine), and a Blue one in the Redmond/Kirkland area (Which I assume is not yours).

Hey, Eric! If it was in the last few days it could have been me. What's amazing is this is the first R3 I've seen in person... ever! I'll keep an eye out for your red one. If you pass by, do a peace sign out the window

I'd be the "WWP Prior owner"

Flying out tonight to get it.

And here are the spark plugs I pulled out of it the first day I had it. The car had a check engine light that I used as a negotiation tactic to lower the price. The CEL is gone now and she runs like a champ with the BHR ignition kit and new plugs

I also have an R3 (Red 2011), but am in Sammamish. I go to Kirkland to get my oil changed at Lee Johnson though, so maybe you saw me there.
