long time lurker on here and have wanted an R for a while now and I may have stumbled onto 1, its an 06 blk/nord, climate and premium pkg, 18" pegs and GT, the best part is it only has 20k and they have it listed for 22.9. 2 things that worry me is its not listed at a Volvo dealer and im not sure my local Volvo dealer is R competent( if I was to guess i'd say not), what does SS think?

I bought mine through a lexus dealership. Have a PPI done and if there is anything wrong with it have the dealership fix it or adjust the price appropriately. You will probably want a warranty, I know I wouldnt have bought mine without it. If the car is not CPO by volvo, the warranty can be expensive, but mine covers just about everything with a 0$ deductible. The warranty cost about 2k for 20,000 miles. I would say that you can get that price down, maybe 20.9. I would look for a 6spd rather than the GT, but thats just me.

that's what i'm going for.. not that car, but a black on black SR upgrade.<br>but i have a few accessories that's a MUST for me.. (learned from the mistake of not getting them on the current 06 S60 2.5T AWD when i bought it new)<p>Does it have factory...<br>1. ..Xenon headlights?<br>2. ..Sport body kit?<br>3. ..Navigation?<br>4. ..Park assist?<br>5. ..Climate package (heated front seats especially)?<p>if you live up in northeast area.. i'd HIGHLY recommend to make sure it has #5

If you are not comfortable with your own ability to assess a car and even if you are, get a PPI. It costs a little up front but will save you mucho dollars and headaches down the road. <br>One last tip, if you get a "uh-oh" feeling in your gut on first site, drive away. Any time I haven't listened to that, I've regretted it.<br>Good luck.

Don't make the mistake of thinking that a Volvo dealer will sell you a truly better car.<p>My lemon-lawed S40 was re-sold CPO at a Volvo dealer in PA.

I have an 06 with 35k - Black, Nord, 6 speed, body kit, climate package in great condition I might be willing to part with. Let me know if you have any interest.

My PPI missed a metric-ton of faults with my R. And this was at a *very* busy and respected Volvo-only Indy.
