It's been a while since I sold my R and replaced it with an E63 AMG.

But there were a bunch of us as regulars back in in 05-07 posting here.

Where is everyone now??

Oh I do have a Volvo still with the XC90 :p

Still have my 07 V70R. Gotta ask, how has the E63 held up? Do love that car.

I'm still here, just went stage 3 with Inga, not happy with results though.

And like 2006, just had ACL surgery on my other leg, so Im not driving anything. :(

I see you are in the Seattle area. We are trying to get a gtg going this Saturday at the triple x in Issaquah. Would like to see your AMG! I really want a CLS55 AMG.

I was never a big poster, but I'm still here. My '05 V just hit 82,000 and looks and runs like new. (albeit after a few repairs). Still love it.

This is so touching, you guys.
Well someday Volvo will meet your needs for crazy horsepower again.
Hope so.

Still here, just broke 90k on the R driving back from vacation in Italy. Of course, the R is a bit the worse for wear as a result... :( I'll be addressing that this weekend.

Wow guys, great to see all you folks still kicking around (although lurking) :D

So just throwing out the question while you guys are here:

Those of you that still have the R (as first owners); what do you think of the R in general and do you regret the purchase of the R(and if you have, what are you considering as a replacement) ?

The R was/is a great value. I've never regretted purchasing the R, it has been one of my favorite cars to own. Although sometimes I regret not getting a V70R.

I'm with George, I'd redo it with a VR. Not regretting getting the R at all, just would be nice to have the extra space. Also, nothing like kicking butt with a wagon. :)

just put on a new set of Pilot SS and absolutely love them! Fantastic tire!
Now Pete..........you, of all people, know that the only proper R tire is the PZero Rosso (Volvo knows best). :p

Still have my 05 S60R. I have about 103,000 miles on it and still enjoy it very much even though I have been thinking about where to go next in a few years, maybe a used Nissan GT-R, lol.
