Well I was dissapointed that the 07 R looks pretty much unchanged other than turn signals in the side mirrors. Still the same crappy headlights <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/zeroforum_graphics/screwy.gif" BORDER="0"> <br><A HREF="http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/2007-Volvo-V70-R-Turbo-300-HP-Performance-Wagon_W0QQitemZ330018324903QQihZ014QQcategoryZ6464QQtcZphotoQQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem#mainImage" TARGET="_blank">http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors...Image</A><br>Jim

Re: Here is the 07 V70R (surfsd)

I know this is nitpicking, but I really don't like the '07 mirror revision. The mirrors themselves look dorky and the loss of the side repeater in the rub rail really softens the car too much. these subtle changes reduce the sportiness of the car, albeit only slightly, IMHO. Volvo should have focused on the tires before anything else.<p>The new wheel caps do look pretty nice though.<p>- Tryg

Re: Here is the 07 V70R (surfsd)

Can someone please explain to me how (or why) the trip counter would advance beyond the odometer in any situation?<p>- Tryg

Basically, this is from testing at the factory, and for some reason the trip computer was not reset at the same time as the odometer when the car hits the port.

Re: Here is the 07 V70R (I Roll)

VADIS/VIDA will allow the odometer to be reset once as long as there are less than x miles on the car. I think x=500 miles. The trip odometer and main odometer data are not stored in the same place.
