    It has grown in popularity as a "pre-owned" car...That's for sure!

    that's cuz they're buying every single wholesale P5 and shipping them down to PR for some reason.

    I don't see many around where I live. However, a lady I work with has a daughter that has an '02 P5 in black. I probably see about 3 a month.

    There has always been an abundance of P5's in Central Florida. I also see about 4-5 msps a month. P5's are 2 a day at least.

    Ever since I got my car, I have seen more on the road. I usually see about one a week and I see a yellow P5 with a checkered stripe on the side in my neighborhood every day when I throw newspapers.

    I've seen quite a few P5 around my area in MA. Nothing really modified though.
    I know for a fact there is some boosted P5s in MA, I've just never seen any over here. I'm north of boston.

    I usually see 2-3 a month around me. A vivid yellow got behind me last Thursday at the toll plaza. An older gentleman was behind the wheel. I did notice though that he had his calipers painted red. All the others I have seen appear to be stock.

    Minneapolis has a good stash of P5s. I see several every day. The drivers usually seem to be middle-aged. I always give a wave when I pass, but have not once had a wave returned from a fellow P5 driver. They are all either picking their nose or just don't appreciate the P5 they have. What's up with that? Can't say that I've seen a single modified P5 either.

    Very rarely do I see a P5 in my area, and if I do it's all stock. That's one of the many resons I love my P5. To many Vibe and Matrix though.
