Re: 2 weeks south of France, only one fake R spotted.. (Johann)

if he had the R mirrors and brakes it would be hard to tell if it was a real R or not.<p>that must be a popular volvo area or something, i see 2 other volvos in those pictures <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: 2 weeks south of France, only one fake R spotted.. (sk11vengeance)

During summertime, almost 75% of the Volvo's you can see are tourists (most of them are Dutch, then come the Swiss, Belgian and German ones).<p>Since the actual R were introduced in France, I've seen 3 of them, not more.<br>France is a small market for Volvo (but growing each year), and more than 90% of them are diesel ones.

Most likely he bought it pre-owned and the front had some parking damage so he choosed to get the R frontwing instead.

Yes, I really miss the gas stations, highway stops in Europe. They all have such a welcoming lineup of magazines as you walk in, well, for men anyway.
