Re: Can Anyone Confirm MY2007 R models discontinued (w1ntson)

Last information was there will be an '07.<p>No confirmation on this side of the pond either.

The Sales guy at the Dallas auto show told me that 2007 is a go and the rep agreed <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/zeroforum_graphics/screwy.gif" BORDER="0"> ...but I do not believe him...his knowledge base was low

I can't tell you where I heard it (Volvo would probably void my warranty!!), but there will be an '07 R. As for changes, I was told, it will be the same changes as all '07 S60's get. I think this will mean turn signals incorporated into the sideview mirrors. Probably some minor other stuff.<br>

(I gave up and just dab on plain Honda white now). Plain white is the easiest color to match, the pearl white is the hardest. Which is probably why if Volvo ever made white available on the R it would be the pearl. I would grit my teeth and still order it, though. It looks great for the first 6 months!<p>I think that the "special edition" 850 Turbo JRL showed me for my kid was white pearl ... it actually didn't look too bad at all, although the car had obviously been garaged.

Re: (bill d cat)

The Arctic White S60s on base here look REALLY good. I would not do a pearl on the R. <p>But if White is the non-metallic color, you could offer a sweet metallic red as the signture color for '07.
