I'm going to check with my dealer tomorrow but curious to know if anyone has heard anything on when orders will begin being taken for the first batch of the S60R's in the U.S.?<p>Many thanks

Re: Ordering S60R (854R)

I put my deposit down in July. My dealership<br>is only getting one V70R (mine <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emsmile.gif" BORDER="0"> The #2 guy<br>on the V70R list here is out of luck unless I<br>get laid off or something.<p>I understand that the waiting lists are enormous<br>for the S60R, I wouldn't be supprised if they<br>have already sold all that are coming to the US.<br>

My dealer tells me he will likely begin accepting orders in April for delivery in November.

Re: Ordering S60R (e1618978)

Yep...this dealer says Volvo has put it later in the year since it's an '04 rather than release it around the same time as the '03 XC90. He also thought the $47k price tag for the S60R as referred to above was a bit steep...but he said wouldn't have numbers of his own until Apri.<p>Don't know how solid this is...that's why I thought I'd post to see what others are hearing.<p>Thanks

I don't even know how many I am going to get (which I know it will be more than one)...Oh well.<br>No, you don't have to wait till November. Tell your guy (or lady) that 2004 units will start arriving this Spring and the Rs are going to be the first 2004 models followed by the rest...We have already started accepting deposits for those cars (we have two for V70Rs and one S60 R deposit), much in the same fashion when we started taking deposits for the XC90s, last April.<p>Yannis<p>

Re: Ordering S60R (GrecianVolvo)

Thanks Yannis...I was looking forward to a response from you on this. So big question is...what's a guy to do if his dealer doesn't know what's going on?

That can only be attained with patience from you and perseverance from him. If that does not work, time to find someone who is willing to make it work.<p>Yannis

Re: Ordering S60R (GrecianVolvo)

They said only one V70R, I don't know<br>how many S60Rs that they are getting.<p>I imagine that the S60Rs will outsell the <br>V70Rs.
