Re: How rare is this R? (Eric_H)

Sport kit + Atacama + Flashgreen + 6 spd is very rare I think.

Surprised they didn't get 18" wheels or navigation.

Rare <> desireable. The green and orange make my eyes bleed.

may be the owner is color blind, lol.

IMO, there really was no good color to go with FG other than nordkap. It was an unusual color and once again proves that rare does not necessarily mean a higher resale. Someone else has to want it for that to happen.

nothing really goes well with the orange carpet either... unless you live at Ft. Benning and frequent Sand Hill where all the clay would blend right in, so you would not have to wip your feet.

Even though that color combination is just so "OUCH" you have to hand it to the Swede's for having that sense of crazy style and the swagger to just do it and not care what anyone thinks. You can get some interesting and unique combinations on the R. When you think about it, the most "normal" interior is probably the Gobi... no grays or blacks.

What is the black eye on the rear bumper and the led pod next to the shifter?
Looks like some kind of aftermarket backup warning.

there was some aftermarket button on the center console near the shifter....maybe related to that thing on the bumper... $5 says it's an aftermarket park distance control device...

whoever did his install didn't put his dash back together right...big gaps near the stereo...tacky.

Re: How rare is this R? (GrahamsV70R)

Actually two things.

1. The picures don't do it justice. I was scared about it but once
I saw it, MAN, is it a stunningly good look.
In the week or so I've had it, a lot of people have said, it's a
very pretty car. Women just drool over it. (Chick Magnet!!
)

2. It's actually a more popular combo in Europe which is where
I'm moving to soon so it will fit in a little better and if I should
decide to sell, won't be like trying to unload a Spruce Goose.
They actually sell for higher value there.

I just bougt one near exact this but mine has GPS.
I'm putting a Sport kit on it I got for $1100 Plus $400 paint.

I'll be watching to see what it goes for.

In Europe this car would sell for about = to $33-34K

I'll bet it goes for about $28-29k here.

hi guys as a member said, in euope it is not rare, as volvo spec'd up cars many of the 04's in uk were flash green ( 80% ) of the 04's for sale in uk are flash green, most all are mt however the sport kit is so far by me in any case not been seen anywhere in uk
