hey all. as a crazy volvo fan i finally got my first R after years of dreaming, drooling, wishing, praying, drooling some more, and dreaming again. mine is a black 05 s60r beauty. recently got the wheels painted black as well. unfortunately its an auto tranny but i still love it so its all good. i'm a not so new newbie because i've spent hours reading various forums of upgrades i'm planning to do to my R. you guys seems knowledgeable enough <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/tongue.gif" BORDER="0"> (way more than me, in fact), so this is probably a good place to start my upgrades. hopefully i'll learn how to post pictures up here so you can also share in my happiness <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>mike

Welcome to SS!<br>It's like looking in a mirror...except I have yet to get any windows tinted (soon though) and I removed the front plate.<p>Enjoy your R! I love mine everyday!

Don't feel bad about your Auto Tranny, I too am in this nurtured group, but you know what, I like my GT, see I said it.

Re: (Mongoose)

thanks. i thought it would look clean like that and a little spicy. less mundane with stock color. i'm trying to image what type of body kit to add whether it be volvo's or evolves. anyone have opinions on these? <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/cool.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: Re: (mikesR)

It is illegal. Where I live in CA its never enforced, so depending on your location you could be fine.<p>Plus so what if you get a fix it ticket, just slap it on to get the write off then yank it again.
