A rather pathetic 04 S60R GT, 49K miles, Silver/Gobi. Aftermarket Borbet wheels (one bent badly but held air!)<br>Car otherwise in halfway decent condition<br>However, the owner added that aluminum stick on trim all over the dash, looked terrible. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthdown.gif" BORDER="0"> <br>Car couldn't break 20K, not sold<br> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/eek.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: R at auction today (JRL)

49k miles? I thought I drove much with 39.5k on my 2004.

It's the worst resale color combo, a GT, aftermarket wheels, crappy interior trim, AND higher miles. Why is this a shocker?<p>IMO, there is SOME value out there if you have a well kept R. Is it great......no way. As an example, I was offered $27K for my 14K mile R with MT, premium, touring, climate, and 18's....and this was from a dealer as a straight buy. Decent price for the market....yes. Do I want another new vehicle and a big first year depreciation hit....no thanks.

Re: R at auction today (frankhoffy)

Bah, I'm with Frank. I think my car is actually worth more than I paid for it now <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0"> .
