I work in the Capitol Hill area of DC. Before my latest purchased I noticed a few VWs in the area. Now that my eye is focused on the brand more I see them all. A surprising number of Passats, a few base model Jettas Mk5-7 and quite the amount of Sportwagens and Alltracks.
By far the most common vehicle is the Golf and all it’s variants. A few Rs but sooo many GTIs. You can almost ride down any residential street for about five blocks and at least see three of them. The more GTIs that I see the more I begin to love my GLI for being not so common. As a matter of fact I have yet to see one from any generation in the Capitol Hill area.
