Well after getting rid of my 04 R for a truck to haul my racebike,Ive regretted it every day. I work in Service at a Volvo dealer, so the R's are staring at me every day,its torture. And driving a truck sucks!!!!<p> So I made other arrangements to get my racebike to the races when needed. So now I no longer need a truck. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> <br> Tomorrow, I will be driving my 06 R off the lot. I cant wait. It will be a great reunion,this weekend should be fun. Im going with almost the same setup as before Titanium,Sport kit,18's premium,Nordkap etc, but this time it will have the graphite wheels instead. I almost went red,but decided to stay with what made me happy before. Well, Im glad to be back and I havent even driven it yet.

Re: Im BACK!!!!!!! (Mike"R")

Hey Mike,<br> I just moved out here a month ago and brought my R to Smythe on Stevens Creek for service. I asked for you and they said you worked at a different smythe <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0"> . Great to see that your back. I might have to bring my R down your way next time...it took them 2 days to smog my car because they didn't know how to disconnect the AWD.

Re: Im BACK!!!!!!! (Mike"R")

Good to have you back Mike. I'm sure you'll add all the bells and whistles (ECU, exhaust upgrades, etc.) in no time... Have fun, and please let us know if you find any difference between the '06 and the '04. See you soon.<p>Rami

Re: Im BACK!!!!!!! (Mike"R")

So, why not get a trailer for the bike? The volvo is more than capable of towing it. Just curious.

I have had only one customer install a hitch on a S60R with body kit. It was ugly in my opinion. I know the car is capable power wise, but Im more about appearence.<p> Anyways ,its been great to be back in the R, I dont notice any differences. Excep the new silver dash and cupholder trim is cooler then before in the 04'. And this one is too quiet, cant wait till next week when my Evolve exhaust with straight pipe shows up. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> Plus these new graphite colored wheels are growing on me, i thought id miss the silver wheels, but I dont. Time to get off the computer and go drive somewhere.Anywhere...

Every day Im asked how Im liking it again. and I say im loving it. And tomoroow gets better cause my Eolve exhaust is due for delivery. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"><p>
