I posted this question in the wrong place, so I'll ask it again here.<P>Is the AWD S60 still an automatic-only model?<P>Please tell me I can get a standard tranny!

I don't think they said did they? I heard this is going to be in the R as well, and gosh I hope that comes with a manual (at least optional).

What do you need a Volvo for in Edgartown? One of those amphibious cars would be better! <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/wink.gif"><P>Seriously though, I believe all along they've been saying that the AWD model will only come in auto.<P>The S60R will have AWD, but I don't think that it's coming until next year sometime.<P>George, correct me please!

Mmmm, Martha's Vineyard. I'll be there in Oct for a wedding. Gotta love any reason to go up there.<P>I was told it'd be out by next winter. I would expect a US debut at Detroit if that is so, but that's all speculative. My contact at Volvo is out this week, so I'll try to check on that for more accuracy by next week.

Actually, I have a house up there, in Edgartown. My regular residence is in MD, but gosh darn it, I'm prouder of the one. The Vineyard is great. If I could live there year round, I definitely would.
