I have now picked up my brand-spankin' new V70 R. Yes, pictures will be forthcoming. Too busy figuring out reasons to drive it right now to take and post pix. <p>Love the power, love the steering wheel, the overall "feel" of the car. I don't have the subwoofer, and still find the premium sound system to be dandy.<p>Don't like the slightly rubbery shifter-feel and the suspension hop. However, I've been spoiled by the short-shifter and H&R coilovers on my Audi.<p>Overall, I'm *very* excited and happy. Seriously, the V70 R is the *only* new vehicle sold in the US that does what I want a vehicle to do, so I'm just thankful that it exists in the first place. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"><p>Further updates as events warrant!<p>mds

I also just purchased a MT V70R and I am puzzled by the rubbery shifter feel comment? Perhaps it is just because I am so happy to be in a MT again, but I really like the feel of the clutch/shifter in my V70R. Clutch is pretty light and the shifter is very precise, almost kind of notchy feeling. I guess it all depends on what your use to.<br>Have a good one and get those pics posted.<br>Jim
