So after 25 wonderful months it is time to bid my S80 farewell. She has served me well and will make the next owner quite proud & be a loyal & compliant road servant.<p>If anyone is interested in buying it, I have negotiated a very solid figure of $29.5k. The contracted residual was $36.5k and the MSRP was $54.5k The car is in pristine condition and has just 17,000 miles. Please PM me because she goes back to Volvo on Friday 7/17<p>I made an impulsive acquisition today that shocked & surprised even my wife... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emlove.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: Bye Bye S80 (bschurr)

Good luck with the new one (I'm betting something a tad sportier than a Malibu...)<p>I'm going to extend my S80 lease for 6 months and see what Volvo / others offer by year's end.

I extended 1 month because I couldnt decide what to get. Be aware that the way the extended lease paymet is calculated is based upon your existing payment PLUS applicable sales tax. So you will be paying double tax if your tax is already in the payment as it was for mine in NJ. IIRC, NY leasing is a bit different so you may not get wacked too bad (but you likely had to pay the tax up front). Regardless - make an informed decision.

I dispossed off my S80 2 weeks ago <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/frown.gif" BORDER="0"><p>I really miss it, and the best negotiated price I could get was $26.5K. Contract residual was $31.2K<p>I decided not to extend the lease as my tires were at 3/32 already, and 2 of them had plugs. Extending it would have meant for me to purchase a new set of tires (or a ballpark of a grand -- 2 car payments and insurance).<p>I just got the final bill with the disposition fee; there was $0 additional wear & tear; how didn't they notice the plugs is beyond me.<p>Got until August 3rd to lease through VCFNA and avoid the disposition fee. Lets see if there is anything decent at that point.

Re: (bschurr)

^^ Yes. Mine was $1,000 though.<p>I thought I was going to see charges for excess wear & care that were covered under wearcare. They came all at $0. That's what I meant <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: (zamo)

<br>Were you hammered price wise on the G37 conv. since it is so new and in season. Did you buy or lease it?

Re: (bschurr)

Sounds like you got a decent deal considering the new factor. Enjoy the car, I love that engine, truly a modern, classic powerplant.

Re: (reinnie)

I saw one driving towards me today, and I think it has too much of a Nissan look to it. Maybe that's just me.
