after about 9 months of searching for a new car, i have finally purchased one. picked up a 2006 Volvo S60R last night. has every option availiable, turbo inline-5, awd with 68k on it. not going to do any heavy mods to it, just intake, bigger intercooler, exhaust and a tune. so far i love it.

Inline 5's used to be the staple of Audi and Volvo.

Nice pickup... I think that has the GM 4T65E in it. If so, god help you. Volvo didn't do a good job of suiting them to their application and had to neuter the automatic S60R because of it. I'd save for a rebuild and then figure out what they do to get more power out of the manual versions.

Oh hai... nevermind all that. They don't have a 4T65 and they didn't have less power. They just limited torque in first and second gears and they stopped doing that in 2006 so basically everything I just said in the last post was a load of shit.

Congrats on the car!

I remember seeing that on my lot (Carmax in Naperville) the other day when it got transferred in from another store. Seemed to me like it was a really good price for a lot of car! Congrats on the new ride! Glad to see it go to a fellow member here. :)
