Per Volvo:<p><B><I> 04/21/2006 is THE LAST DATE OF CHANGE for any 2006 chassis'.</I></B><p>So if anyone wants to special order a 2006 R (or anything else, for that matter), you MUST have your retailer place your order before the close of business tomorrow. Otherwise, you will have to wait and order a 2007 model, or take whatever has been built.

I think that was changed a month or so ago. Latest word is there will be an R for '07.

Fortunately, you will be able to get the expresso maker for 1,800 Euros, plus a reasonable install fee from your Volvo dealer. Maybe we could get a group buy going if Jim Lill puts up the deposit. Also, I hear some of the Euro owners are very interested in the smoothie maker. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">

Sales info says something like I6-3.0T-261Kw-w42/2006 but I don't know what the heck that means..<p> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/tongue.gif" BORDER="0">

Yes, but it will only run on 220 volts DC. So even if you can get the espresso maker it won't make espresso in the USA<p>BTW from what I understand of "collector cars", the LAST year of the model run fetches a collector's premium, not the next-to-last year. Since this may be the last "real" Volvo and the last "insane" Volvo before Folvo reverts to its mission of building safe, sane vehicles, I plan to wait.

I was thinking in the same ballpark as the price premium that the last, individually numbered series of the Volvo 240DL "Classic" commands.<p>(Not quite enough to cover dinner for 2 in a nice New York, DC or SF restaurant. Sans drinks.)<p>Anyway, I would like to see if we get the power folding mirrors. And the 346HP, that might be worth waiting for, too. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0">
