Re: R Pricing was released. (Ash)

it's solid info, i saw a press release. it had option pricing but i didn't get it all. the release used the word "aggressive pricing", and this certainly is...

This pricing is pretty good. very similar to the previous generation Audi S4 (00-01). <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>They should sell well. Hopefully some other tuners start to take notice. ( APR, AWE )<p>

No 18" wheels for the V70R... why?<br>Is there some difference in the wheel well<br>that would make 18" wheels rub or something?

Re: R Pricing was released. (T5 Dave)

That is a good pricing for both of them. This will be much more tolerable to handle than the previous pricing of ~ $45K.<p>So what the heck is the Atacama Leather Seating? Is this a special leather? You would think that "Metallic paint" would be free for a car of this caliber. <p>Yannis, can we get the 12Volt outlet in the rear without buying the Versatility Package? I don't need nor want the booster seats or the third row seat. <p>RJ

V70R Wheels

As an urban resident, I can appreciate Volvo's decision not to market the wagon with 18" wheels. The 850R and T5R models came stock with 215/40/17 which had some trouble on rough roads. Lots of owners complained about "bubbles" or other tire damage as result of hitting a pothole, not to mention damage to the rims. The kinda weight these cars push makes it a little prohibitive to go to low on the profile. The S60R 18" would also have a 40 height and that on the wagon, loaded on the mean streets of Brooklyn wouldn't stand a chance. I put 45s on my 17" rims and never had problems. I opted for the 17s with my V70R order too. I saw a photoshop pic of an SUV with 40" rims somewhere on Swedespeed and a strip of rubber wrapped around them: very funny!! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emsmile.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: V70R Wheels (24Hours)

I totally hear you on this. 18's wouldn't stand a chance in Boston either, especialy with the Big Dig still around. I have 17's for my VW Passat and actually bent 2 of them (driver side) this summer. I will definetely stick with 17's again with the V70R (Don't think you can go with 16's due to the brakes). <p>I just realized no mention of the V70R's rear spoiler. Will that be standard or avaliable seperately?<p>You're talking about <A HREF="http://forums.swedespeed.com/zerothread?id=6581" TARGET="_blank">this post with the 40" rims</A>. But it is photoshopped though. <p>RJ

Wow! Those prices are better than I expected. However, I'll probably wait for the 2nd years to come out to work out the kinks... Anyhoo, I'll be checking them out at the LA autoshow this weekend... I'll post pics...
