Those wheels + automatic = BLEH

$15K maybe.
No love for the RS4 wheels? I think they look nice. But yes, price is high!

Yup and it seems every C30 I look at they all think they are worth 20k. One on ebay right now for 18.5 ask the guy if there was any room on the price. Answer was no and if doesnt sell he'll relist at 20k and leave it at that price till it sells. lol

What do you think of the pricing on this R? Has a lot of maintenance items done. Waiting to hear back on the car fax before I make the trip to see it.

it has the rare Volvo phone option, which if I recall correctly was originally linked to On-Star back in '04. Then that deal fell apart and the service was dropped.

It looks well equipped but the price may be on the high-side for a private sale.

The Volvo integrated phone in Europe still works because it's GSM not analogue CDMA like the USA one. My R has the phone module still.

That R is probably gonna need a clutch/slave soon... 105k is around when most go...

Still thinking about taking a look at this VR. However according to the salesguy the timing belt hasn't been done and he doesn't know if the angle gear has ever been replaced or rebuilt (I need to have AWD since winter is coming)

It is a clean 1 owner VR with good miles, don't see many of those anymore! As well as a 6 spd

If you read the carfax report it clearly states that the timing belt was replaced at 77K miles. I would call the dealership it was replaced at and request the history.. the angle gear however is another issue. It seems this car has been very well taken care of which hopefully translates into a well maintained angle gear as well but you never know.. This is a beautiful car! Exactly what Im looking for! Unfortunately the distance and the price are deterring me from pursuing this VR. If it was closer to me and 1K less in price I would be ALL over this! I say go for it! If the price drops 1K I may be taking a trip to Chicago!

You may regret missing this car more than spending the extra money and effort to travel. I suggest you make the offer allowing for any repairs not documented, hop a MegaBus and enjoy the road trip home.

They are fine cars.
