Gosh I've been itching for a new 2006 S60R with body kit in the electric silver. Right now I have a 2004 S60R that's a CPO with 28k on it. I've been contemplating selling it and buying a new car uggh.<p>I just think those Electric Silver cars are beautiful :::sigh:::<BR><BR>

I'm not going to try and talk you out of it. I just drove by the Volvo dealership and saw the same car you described and it looks great. If you can afford it then go for it! This way it'll hold you over better until the next R comes along.

Cars Direct.com has the V70R asking price at $6400 below sticker in my zip code. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> Does anyone think it will go lower in July? And, does anyone with a crystal ball know what the '07 V70R "Final Edition" incentives will be? <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/confused.gif" BORDER="0">

But I would have to say it is all in your negociating powers (Jedi mind trick) with the dealer at the time of sale. I just picked up my LOADED 06 S60R w/46 miles on the OD on 5/30/06 and negociated $38k for the car. List was in the high $47's and i took a chance a threw out a low figure and they bit. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/tongue.gif" BORDER="0">

Sean - Your car is nothing to sneeze at - You have done uniqie & tasteful mods to your car, it is one of the nicest red Rs I have seen (no offense Frank - yours is beautiful too in an over the top ghost flame way <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> ) <p>I doubt you will recover your expenses if you sell but, I too am partial to a Silver car! You only go around once so if it makes you happy GO FOR IT!

Re: Talk me down from the ledge (bschurr)

I originally ordered a silver wagon. (For those who were here 3 years ago, you know the story) but would up with big RED.<br>I would LOVE to now have a Sonic Blue (or Silver) but it makes no sense with only 22K on the clock, never damaged (the body, can't say that about the wheels <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/rolleyes.gif" BORDER="0"> ) and 3 years or sweat getting it "just right"<br>Heck, the ipd flash still isn't even out for 06's yet, you buy an 07 and you won't be getting anymore hp for a year and a half if your lucky.

Re: Talk me down from the ledge (Quick Brick)

If you get the electric silver, you could do the blue window tint <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>go for it. I just traded my '04 for an '06 and am soooo happy. Start searching around the country for your car. You might find it.

I have an 06 Electric Silver with every option, folding mirrors, and the body kit. LOVE IT!<p>Just know that the body kit does not come factory painted like the other colors. You have to buy it and have it painted and installed. Even on the website it's not an option in Electric Silver. I know why, too - because of the nature of the metallic paint. They have to match it perfectly as every car is ever so slightly different. Costs more than a few hundred over the stock ones. But it's worth it.<p>Who knows...maybe a dealer will have one they already added it to?<p>Go for it!<p>-s-

Sean, I have to agree with bcshurr..... do you really want to start all over on another car when you have done so much tactful work to your "R"?
