Now that production on the RS has (hopefully) started, I thought it would be a good idea to get to know some of my fellow RS owners who live in Long Island where I grew up and NYC where I currently live. After taking delivery I think it could be cool to meet up and drive some of the best roads and areas that only the NYC/LI people know.

So feel free to share where you're from, if you know of any great local places to drive the RS and if you'd be interested to meet up!

I'm so stoked! My car is finally here. Picking it up from Sayville Ford on Friday. Ordered it October 20th. Anyone else on the island have a car yet?

Anyone heading down to OBI on Sunday mornings? It's a great car show. I'd love to see some RS's down there. I'll be there bright and early with a couple other STs. There is almost always a huge turnout, and parking is limited so getting there before 8 is advisable. There's every kind of car down there, but mostly muscle and exotics.

For those that don't know, OBI is off ocean parkway just before Robert Moses causeway. The entrance is on the eastbound side.

I have a tangerine scream 2013 ST1 with a big turbo (EFR 6758).

Pasta I'm in Staten island. Seeing one of these is like needle in haystack. I know of one other on Staten island which I have not seen yet.

I saw someone pull through OBI. Too bad the lot was so packed. I barely got a spot myself with my yellow ST lol. We need to get some meets going with the STs and RSs.

The NYST club upstate does a few cruises a year on nice twisty, scenic roads which I've been meaning to go to.

I'm picking up my RS in the first week of August when I get back from my honeymoon. I got the call from the dealership in PA that the car came in the day before my wedding (which was Friday).

Definitely looking to head to OBI when the car arrives, and I'll have to look into NYST @willfromfreeport

Lived 38 years in the Bronx, just moved to Rockland the beginning of the year. I work I Yonkers so I'm still close, and I would go to any good meets if any are set up. I plan on hitting the bear mountain show regularly when I get the car.

I've got mine, in lower Westchester. Haven't come across any others in the NYC area as of yet, either.

I'll be making OBI sometime in August, if not next Sunday, God willing.

Definitely try to get to OBI early, or do your best to troll for a spot. It was so packed today.

Mine is on the boat already, �� Should be arriving to port on August 15. I'm not sure how long it will take to show up at my dealership in Brooklyn. So far I think I might be one of the two who will have an RS in Brooklyn...??? Plus I work in Staten Island too, so you might see it parked somewhere too. NS RS2

Where is OBI? I've never been there before.

I was out there that day with my FoRS on the opossite side of the lot from where you were parked.
Oh damn. I didn't see you parked when I went around. The pops from the stock exhaust were surprising when your revved it up to go up that incline.

After labor day, when it's free, the meet moves over to the Captree parking lot. That lot can hold many more cars. I'll be down there again once it's there.

It's on the east end of Ocean Parkway (the one in Nassau and Suffolk County, not in BK lol).

Ohhhh okay now that makes sense, because I live by ocean parkway in Brooklyn lol that's why I was a little confused.

I've seen the same NB RS a total of four times now on Long Island, owner lives in Suffolk (Miller Place/Rocky point area) and is on here, I believe. First time, it crossed in front of me at a light and I freaked out - I think my wife and kids thought I was crazy as I pointed and yelled, "RS, RS, RS!"
