Hi All,<p>I'm new to the forum, so I'm hoping some folks out there can enlighten me a bit on this. I'm considering purchasing a 2006 "R", but would rather wait if I can get a more powerful engine in the next model year. So with that in mind, does anyone knows anything about the 2007 Model Year "R" and if there will be major changes, especially in the area of engines. <p>With the development of the new 3.2L I-6 that is supposed to roll out in the new S80, has anyone heard anything regarding this engine being dropped in the "R"? Any word on performance numbers either???<p><br>Thanks.

No, no, and no.<p>I posted the changes somewhere on this forum. If you search for a thread called something like "07 Colors" its in there.<p>No significant changes to the '07 R. In fact it doesn't even get active bi-xenons like the rest of the S60 series. I think it gains a digital compass in the rear-view mirror - something which I would find no use for.

Re: 2006 R vs 2007 R? (PM)

The R's are great and the 06,07 have minor differences from even the 05. I bought mine from exclusively Volvo in Ontario and they were great, had it detailed in the showroom and let me drive it out. FYI since you are looking.

Re: 2006 R vs 2007 R? (zlar007)

So what are the chances that an 2008 MY "R" will have the 3.2L I-6 with 350HP stock?

They may redevelop the R line by 2010, but I doubt it. If they are serious about having a performance line, then we would need a R with the V8 tuned to over 350bhp. If this happens, pigs will fly.</TD></TR></TABLE><p>Wow, can I borrow your crystal ball for tonights lotto drawing? <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/zeroforum_graphics/screwy.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/tongue.gif" BORDER="0">
