*Spotted* Vancouver FR-S/BRZ Sightings Thread

Decided to make a Vancouver spotted thread for easier tracking!

Spotted white FR-S from OpenRoad Toyota parked in front of the dealer between McDonald's and Auto West BMW by Cambie and Shell Road in Richmond.

Had redded out taillights already! Any pics?

I may be alone in this thought, Adam, but if that were my car you posted about, you would never see it in your shop again. Folks who want to check out a car can do it at the dealership, or can check out a car owned by the shop. Not cool to post about a customer car.

its not going to be driven or sat in. it would let people see the underside as its on a hoist , and let people see the current parts being made on the car. there is no harm in that. plus the customer is a close friend and he dosent mind if people LOOK at his car.

You guys are crazy. Are you planning on even driving your cars or just locking them in the garage so nobody else can even look at them?

I personally want people to be looking at and admiring my car. Sure, I wouldn't want people touching it, sitting in it, driving it, etc... But that's not what this is about.

To each their own. Weirdos. :P

Threads like these does nothing but invade people's privacy. If someone spotted my car and decided to post half my license plate number online, I'd be pissed.

There's no damage done to me, but when and where I go is something I'd like to keep to myself.

Consider yourself lucky enough to not have had your car damaged while it is in a shop. I have. It sucks. A shop that grants unnecessary access to customer cars does not get my business.

well cosidering when you drive around all day how many people see your license plate. its on the car people WILL see it. i guess you wont take your car to the dealer for service either as more than 1 tech will be LOOKING at it and DRIVING it. i have customers of all sorts come to my shop all the time. its an open shop i cant hide cars from peoples eyes, they are there. but hey to each his own and i listen to peoples concerns. if it was your car in my shop it would be a more private matter but i would take photos of the work done for documentation and i cant help it if i have a customer come into the shop while a car is there.
