S60 R in James Bond Movie

I was traveling out of town and my 10 year old called me and said James Bond was driving my car in the movie Quantum of Solace. I thought he must have been mistaken. When I got home he showed me (he had Tivo'd it) a short segment where James Bond was following a Jaguar in a Titanium Grey S60 R with body kit. There was no mistaking it, because when switched to slow motion, you could read the S60 R emblem on the back. This may have been brought up before, but I just thought it was kinda neat to see my exact car, same wheels, color, body kit, etc. in a movie. Also, great for the kid to see James Bond driving Dad's car.<p> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0">

I don't think a manufacturer would pay to show off a car that's no longer sold. If you're referring to below, it's an s40 t5.<p><IMG SRC="http://imcdb.org/images/203/078.jpg" BORDER="0">

ha ha....I did notice the nub on the top, and it is an s40...but all you have to do is drop a ridiculous R on the back @ 3am and it makes it an s60R...it's the magic of movies... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/embeer.gif" BORDER="0">

I know it is an S40, I am more interested in knowing how you edited your thread title, any time I have made a typo and go try to change it I get a "you are not authorized to edit threads" thing...

I would assume that this thread started in the R forum, and then the title was edited when a mod moved it over to here for some reason. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/confused.gif" BORDER="0"><p>I mean... this is old news.
