Well I am from Richmond, BC Canada and I have been looking for an R for some time now. I only wanted a 6 speed with atacama interior and I am very very picky about dents and scratches. So a week ago i found a S60R for sale in Albuquerque, NM. its only got 21,000miles on it and always garage kept with all service records. Talked to the owner and he assured me the car does not have any paint damage, scratches and its all factory paint. I took his words and transfer my money to his bank the following day.<p><B>Day one</B>- flew from Vancouver to Pheonix and then connted a flight to Albuquerque.<br><B>Day two</B>- drove from Albuquerque to Salt Lake City<br><B>Day three</B>- drove from Salt lake City to the border where the car is waiting for export from the US and then import into Canada<p><IMG SRC="http://i130.photobucket.com/albums/p246/Lude_S/3.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i130.photobucket.com/albums/p246/Lude_S/1.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i130.photobucket.com/albums/p246/Lude_S/7.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i130.photobucket.com/albums/p246/Lude_S/6.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i130.photobucket.com/albums/p246/Lude_S/5.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i130.photobucket.com/albums/p246/Lude_S/8.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><br>I own the silver and my brother owns the grey. Both are atacama interior <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> but his is auto and mine is 6 speed.<p><br><BR><BR>

Wow, that's a great find. Why did the original owner sell with only ~2000 miles?

Nice find!!! I dont think i have ever seen a Silver atacama combo!<br>I drove about 1200 miles when I got my R (Denver to Sacramento) and that has been by far the best and most comfortable 1200 miles i have ever driven lol

Re: (vw_mkv)

well, in theory they should cut down on road noise since they are thicker.<p>I'm in agreement with the backup sensors, it breaks up the flow of the bumper.<p>I'll go hunt down the autotrader ad, autotrader is a pain for looking at only Rs though.

I wasn't looking specifically for a manual so I overlooked that part. When I was looking I wasn't necessarily after the sport package but now that I have one I wouldn't do it any other way, makes the car look totally different.<p>and yes for that many miles that guy shouldn't be asking close to 20k there is a 2004 R 3 miles from me going for $15k and I'd take it with only 40k miles over a 2006 with nearly 60k.
