I noticed this S60 Special Edition in Black Sapphire with a $11K discount off its MSRP. Seemed like a good deal. This car comes with a bunch of goodies as part of its MSRP and had just Destination charge tacked on.<p>I sat in it and it did feel good and the steering wheel was nice and grippy. <p>Is the S60 T5 at some 258 HP a decent puller in auto mode?

I think the sticker on the last one I saw was $36k. So they're letting a new one go for $25k?<p>They've got badass looking wheels (cassiopeia) and they come loaded. Give it a chip, downpipe and exhaust and it'll knock your socks off. There are videos of similarly modded S60 T5s walking M3s.

But you just SOLD your R that never gave you any problems <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/zeroforum_graphics/screwy.gif" BORDER="0"> <br>Give that T5 a chip and it will be as fast as your old R (with ease)

Volvo and chrome don't mix, IMHO. Other than that, the car kicks ass...the T5 has an excellent power/weight ratio. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">
