Hi all,

I am interested in this R:
http://forums.swedespeed.com/showthread.php?171015-For-Sale-05-S60R-60K-miles-6MT-Harrisonburg-VA

Has anyone seen this car in person, have any oppinions about it, specifically the mods?

I have been in contact with the owner and he seems like a great guy. As I am somewhat new to these cars, any pointers would greatly be appreciated. Please do not talk this car down in this public forum, as I do not want to hurt StevenT"s chances of selling the car, rather keep it to PM.


Thank you for your help and time!

seems like a reasonable deal (gobi is blah though) low miles, the seller seems truthful I say go for it

Looks pretty clean. FMIC and downpipe are great additions; the GSX Todd stuff seems to be well regarded too. I don't have any experience with the Autotech tune. I think it would be advantageous to buy an R from an enthusiast, since they know the issues surrounding the caR and tend to be more "anal" about taking care of stuff. Drawbacks? Electric Silver over Gobi seems like somewhat of an odd color combo to me, but other than that it looks pretty good.

I am not a huge fan of gobi, but I think it looks better in a silver than nordkap. Ti and atacama is where it's at though.

It's not very odd, just boring...
