Hey guys, <BR>Just an FYI, I have been given warning of the release of the S60R information and pics. I assume it'll be joined by info on the V70R as well. On July 4th or therabouts, they'll be releasing the info with an actual show release not too far following (probably around Sept).

Well, this rat bastard has seen it. For production purposes, we just got the photos and the car looks sweet. I can't say much about it, as it is embargoed, but I don't think you guys are going to be disappointed at all.

There aren't great closeups of the wheels, but I'll check again on the brakes. There's a side shot, but the lighting is pretty bright on the wheels so tough to see big detail.<P>One of the coolest features in the pics is the gauge cluster. VERY cool and not the same old same old we've seen before in other makes.<P>I'd describe the wheels as titanic. Read into that as you will. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/wink.gif">

Does that mean they are electroluminescent or digital, or most likely look like the guages that are from the ACC2 concept or maybe SCC concept. Or maybe something along the lines of an F1 type setup... <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif"><P>-Drew

I will say one other thing. This car is subtlely upgraded from the exterior. It's much more like an S4/A4 relationship than a new M3/ 330.

And silver side skirts should be something for a Civic type R package. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/wink.gif">

Johann,<P>Man, your car is just too bad-ass! Everytime I see pictures of it, it has different wheels on it! Those Capella 18's look mean... <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/biggrin.gif"><P>-Drew<p>[This message has been edited by InDy (edited 06-28-2002).]
