Great purchase man!
I really like the Volvo S60R. They offer a great blend of performance, luxury, comfort, etc... Very similar to a BMW 540i
As for stats, they run 13.9-14.0 @ 101/102mph.
get some pics up!

I love the S60R. My dad has a black 04, but unfortunately he got the auto . Apparently the 6-speed is a good deal quicker (having the auto drops the torque nearly 40 ft-lbs ). Still pretty fast though. Awesome combination of luxury and refinement, power, and handling. Is the ride on the STi seriously harsher than the R on 'Advanced'? I've actually never ridden in an STi, so I couldn't say from personal experience, but if it is, that'd get annoying really fast. It's a ton of fun for 'spirited driving', but with the crappy roads down here, I find that my CDs are always skipping from potholes and joints in the road when it's on Advanced. Just yesterday I hit a small hole/seam in the road, and it sounded god-awful (horrendously loud bang that shook the entire car).
I haven't seen much about modifications. I know that there are a few companies over in Europe that have put out chips for them, but I'm not sure if those have made it to the US yet. I remember seeing an R a while ago, in the U.S., that put down 300 WHP with intake, exhaust, and a chip. Not too bad.
damn guys, thanks for all the mod sites....looks like there's some work to do :-)

Ever since my wife and I attended a Volvo 'driving event' and had a chance to flog an S60R around a small autocross course, it's been one of our top candidates for our next car.
I like the power, AWD, looks, and rarity of the car. I seem to prefer cars that are somewhat 'unknown' to the great unwashed out there (hence the WRX), and this one qualifies. I'm excited to hear they might be discounting.
Only downside I have found so far (other than the strange looking shifter) is that it is primarily a FWD car, with the rear wheels only coming online when needed. Other than that, it's just about perfect for our purposes.
Great job on the 30k deal on an almost-new R!
