I heard a rumor that the S60R body is being redesigned for the 2007 model year. Is this correct? Are there any pictures out yet?

I doubt there will be any change to the R for '07. After all, it is a low volume seller that initially wasn't even planned to still be around in '07.

I think in TV show production terms, the S60 has "jumped the shark". <p>For some reason, fancy steering wheel trim changes also seem to happen somewhere around that time on many such models.

Hey, what the heck is 'grid aluminum'? I hope this is the hideous stuff they had on the C32 AMG a couple of years back (it was aluminum with black criss-cross lines on it for no good reason) that kept it from winning my heart against the R.

And while you're at it, ask him if it comes with a V8 or turbo I6. If it does, tell him that you'll pay sticker price.

Re: (needsdecaf)

I actually got back to the guy today and told him it lists the prices for overseas delivery for the 07 R on Volvo’s site. He then of course said well they were going to discontinue it but just decided to keep it going. Yeah like in the 5 hours since I spoke to him Volvo decided <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/zeroforum_graphics/screwy.gif" BORDER="0"><p>So I'll scratch that dealer off my list.
