Just picked up a 2007 Titanium Grey R with 16k miles for 26k. I work at a volvo<br>dealer and the car caught my eye when the previous owner turned it in because <br>of his lease was up. Told my parents i was looking into it. Then 2 days ago i got <br>to work and the car was sold and gone. I was pissed. Then yesterday i opened the front door of my house and it was there. My parents went there picked it up. Thats why it was gone. <p>Monthly payments are low and good and so is insurance considering i'm 19 yrs old. My first car i bought on my own <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> Went from a 01 T5 to this.<br>Sorry for the crappy cell phone pic. I will post more pics up later on.<p><IMG SRC="http://i27.tinypic.com/f3ukqv.jpg" BORDER="0">

Re: New R here (PureDrive07)

Yeaa congrats!! And as for the insurance, well seeing as I'm 20, have a, well I'm not proud of my driving record (only speeding tickets), I pay 264. That's in Florida and I'm with progressive. I've always herd florida was one of the most expensive states for insurance... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/confused.gif" BORDER="0">

As a former Jersey resident, I'm amazed to hear low insurance and NJ in the same sentence!!!
