Hey,<br>I'm brand new to the forum and planning to buy/lease a new V70R.<br>I've been looking at local dealerships, and I'm seeing '06 list pricing over $ 62,000 CDN - seems remarkable as numerous posts I've seen here at Swedespeed evidence people buying new R's in the neighborhood of $ 43,000 to $45,000 USD (say $ 50,000 to $ 51,000 CDN with reasonable current exchange rates). Can I expect to be able to deal at $10,000 to $12,000 off list for what is being described as a "rare/special/limited availabilty" vehicle? What gives?<br>Joe in Ottawa <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/confused.gif" BORDER="0">

Welcome to Swedespeed, Joseph.<p>One sure way to get a good deal on a new R is to participate in the Volvo Cars Overseas Delivery program.<p>Here is the USA info...<p><A HREF="http://www.volvocars.us/salesandservices/overseasdelivery/default.htm" TARGET="_blank">http://www.volvocars.us/salesa...t.htm</A><p>George Dill<p><br>

Re: list price discrepency... (gdill2)

Thank you, George,<br>I just reviewed the site and it certainly seems an interesting proposition.<br>At first glace and based on the USD "tourist" pricing shown, the 70R is closer to $42K CDN...imagine - nearly $ 20,000 less than CDN invoice!<br>Should anyone on the board have personal experience in taking delivery overseas, I'd be very interested in hearing about it.<br>Meanwhile, I'll investigate further and thanks again (quite cool).<br>Joe O'L
