Hi Everyone-<br>I've been reading the forums for a while, but had no R to talk about. I fixed that Saturday, when I picked up a 2006 Black Sapphire/Nordkap w/ 18" graphite Pegasus wheels. I got an increadible deal, or I wouldn't have been able to afford it <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> I'm glad this forum exists for all of the info available about the S60 R. Does anyone here from San Francisco take their car to Royal Motors for service? That's where I bought the car, but wanted to get opinions on best service dept. in the area. I work in San Mateo.

I bought/service my car at Smythe Volvo in San Jose. Not too close to you, but the service manager owns an R and knows alot about them as well. I don't know about any other dealers in the area, but you can't go wrong at Smythe.

Re: Picked my R up Saturday, new to the forums (jdog)

Thanks for the welcome!. I'll work on my signature. Thanks Jdog. That's funny, because the sales team there leaves something to be desired. They didn't seem interested in working with me (the finance manager anyway, the salesman was very nice). I had to rub it in a little when he e-mailed me to find out if I was still interested. I let him know I purchased exactly what I wanted for the price I wanted at another dealer. One observation so far- the turning radius SUCKS! I'm coming from a '90 760 that never ceased to amaze me with the tight spots, u-turns, etc I could negotiate, and that car is a boat!

yea, I think i'm going to get a license plate that reads "S.S. Volvo" - since it has the turning radius of a boat. I didn't have any trouble with finance, but if you did, then its good you found the deal you wanted somewhere else.
