Has been a few years since I lurked around the SS forum after selling my '06 Sonic/Gobi S60R 6sp back in 09 to move over in to an Audi RS6. Depending on what transpires with a possible sale in the next few days, could be back visting the forum here soon. Looking at an '04 V70R 6sp Blk/Atacama. Needs some 'love' on some cosmetic exterior items and also a couple of more serious mechanical items (clutch and a strut or two), but nothing that is a dealbreaker if the right purchase price is agreed upon - for me anyway. Splash in the pan compared to the trio of RS6's I've kept up with the TLC on... Have been thoroughly enjoying the RS6 platform, but admitedly miss rowing the gears which can only be done with my Audi's using an 01E swap at a nominal $10K hit to your wallet. Big pill to swallow to just get a manual! Also, there were never any RS6 Avant's (wagons) imported to North America, so with the desire to get a sporty wagon to move my two daughters, great dane, and perhaps some luggage for weekend getaways around, I was either looking to get an E63 AMG, a 535i wagon with the M-sport package, or of course a V70R. The latter is a lot cheaper than the former two and this opportunity is sizing up to be one I could be crazy to pass up. Will know more after Thanksgiving. Have done crazier things over the years.
