Let me introduce myself, well as R owner

Hi all,

I'm not new around here as I have S70T5M and recently bought S70 ASR for my kid. But I'm new to "R" cars, even I spent lot of time reading R forum. I finally pulled the trigger and bought V70R from an original owner in SC.
It's 2006 Sonic/Nordcap with manual . Premium, Convenience, Climate Packages. Booster seats and subwoofer. It had with 28000 miles before the trip, it's 29k now.
The car is in awesome condition, and looks like DRL is disabled.

So far I'm happy camper, no immediate plans for mods even the list of mods was prepared in advance. Wait, oops, I already began... I took the exhaust bracket at the AutoZone's lot in SC - had to buy a wrench, security in Logan didn't let me onboard with my tools...

Here is a couple pics, sorry for the quality, one of these from my cellphone, both were taken on the way home. Cannot make anything better fro now as we have rain 24/7.

ps. Time to read manual and update the sig

Re: (JRL)

I would probably never bought Sonic if I haven't seen pictures of that car. Some day I hope to make something similar, at least visually similar.

The same day I bought it I l missed a set of Heico wheels with a good rubber on CL in Phila. I could be pick it up on the way home..

Nice find, Kiril. Congrats. I guess I'm one of the few still in the T5M club.


I hope to see it in person at the meet in Ipswich next month.

Dude, a manual Sonic Blue V70R has to be incredibly rare, what a great find.

I have teased Sonic Blue as a "smurfy" color over the years based on how it looks in pictures, but in person, it looks pretty special, especially in light conditions at dusk. First and only Sonic Blue I've ever seen was [email protected]'s, which was then JRLs.

Welcome to the R club, enjoy the ride. I know there are some jealous people on the board. Now if it had Atacama, you might need to keep you location a secret, to avoid stalkers on here...
