2004 Volvo S60 R 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 6M)
I traded my 540 in on a Volvo R and it's hard explain my enthusiasm. Sure, a Bimmer is performance - and Volvo stands for safety - until you drive it. Total performance all the time. Going for groceries has never been a faster trip and what a sleeper. One of the faster 4 door sedans on the road and the "R" emblem seems to disappear at a red light to the unsuspecting teenie racer with the lawn mower exhaust next to you... Great car so far - hope it's BMW reliable in the future... :))
Classy Looks - normal group effect package. New Aluminum interior trim in 2005 model - A lot better than previously. 6 Speed stick looks super cool w/ no leather boot. Very functional 4 door sedan with good gas milage and tons of Bang for the buck.
Interior lacks normal storage - no change holder or ashtray (To hold change). Window ticket holder is worthless (unless you use it as a sunglasses holder) (Which it also lacks). Front map lights have toggles behind the cluster - should be push on push off. Did anyone mention turning radius???
