Well, circumstances are such that I will need to sell the R. Just getting the final cleanup done , making sure it will be in perfect selling condition.<p>When I throw it up on ebay...Ill send out word. SHould be an easy easy sell cosidering the condition, history of who this car was made for and the price.<p>Not sure of the replacement yet.... maybe an AMG or M series

Re: Sadly Leaving the R family (fergs60r)

Is it just me or was that a very odd message...<p>Statements like "circumstances are such that I will need to sell the R..." are usually accompanied by things like someone's inability continue maintaining or paying for their car (e.g., loss of job), or adding a 3rd or 4th kid to the family, thereby necessitating a bigger car (e.g., big honkin' SUV or Minivan).<p>Statements like "not sure of the replacement yet... maybe an AMG or M series" -- when it comes to the R, are usually accompanied with an interest in trading up for any number of reasons.<p>So, out of curiosity, do you <b>need</b> to sell or just <b>want</b> to sell...or is it that you <b>need</b> to now and hope, someday in the distant future when the time is right for you that the replacement will be an AMG or M? Either way, best of luck with your new car...whatever it might be.<p>-Eric

He never said he was looking for a <b>new</b> AMG or M, could very well be grabbing something used and is scared to go along with a car like the R that's out of warranty.

Your R, while nice, does not seem to be very special considering the equipment you have listed in your sig. A ti/nordkap R with body kit is not all that uncommon, and your mods are bolt ons that anyone has access to. If someone famous did order your car specifically, just be sure to have a lot documentation for proof, otherwise it would be just like George Costanza ending up with "John Voight's car".<p>

Re: Sadly Leaving the R family (I Roll)

For some time, <A HREF="http://forums.swedespeed.com/zerothread?id=24388" TARGET="_blank">Ahmet Zappa</A> (or someone pretending to be him) was on this board but that was a long time ago and his car would have been older...oh, and it was a V70R.<p>Regardless, unless Elvis owned the R in question, whomever ordered the car might be a cool tidbit in its history but it's not likely to get a seller much in the form of cash.<p>-Eric

<i>Whatever</i> he gets or doesn't get for a specially ordered/built R (If that's even the case here), I think there is simply some curiosity about the R. I know I am simply curious about what makes it special. I'm hardly going to chime in and say "Yeah, forget about your R being special", after all, I'm not in the market for an R at the moment.

Maybe Britney Spears farted in it and you can still smell the stench.<br>That might make someone interested. Especially the guy who bought her fart in a jar on ebay.<br>Or maybe there's a nice stain of some kind like Monica Lewinsky's dress.
