I've been trying to purchase an '07 R for about a month and after being lied to by the dealership about finding the one I wanted, I placed an order to the factory. In 8-10 weeks I should be getting a 07 S60 R Black with Nordkap interior, MT, fully loaded. Just wanted to introduce myself. <p>Cheers <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/embeer.gif" BORDER="0"><br>Cory<p>Sorry if this was posted in the wrong place. I only read the R Forum so this is what I know. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">

Yee Haw! Make sure you take pics of your new ride when you pick it up!<p>Care to elaborate about the dealer lying to you?

Well, welcome to the R-Club. I hope you enjoy your new R a lot.<p>BTW, if you were going to factory order it, why didn't you do the OverSeas Delivery (OSD). You save $$ <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> and get a free trip to Europe to boot. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>I have enjoyed mine very much and have had few problems with it,m and the OSD was terrific <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emlove.gif" BORDER="0"> .

The dealer said he found a magic blue with sand interior, which despite the somewhat purple hue, I wouldn't have minded, I signed for it and was told to wait 7-10 days. 6 days later they called me and said the car was no longer available. <p>Somewhat annoying, but I still get my initial choice of black on black(ish). Plus they threw in free ipod adapter and bluetooth for their mistake!!<p>I would love to have OSD the car but I don't have the time to take a trip to Sweden. Plus, my Uncle OSD the C70 about 7 years ago and took me with him.

Re: (corysobov)

First welcome to the group!<p>You're ire may be somewhat misdirected if the first car was properly held by them and some other dealer sold it out from under them. <p>None the less, they appear to be doing the right thing, and making it right, even on an ordered car.
