Been driving my S60 R-Design for just over a year.
Great styling differentiates this car from a standard A4 or 3-Series.
Motor is smooth and powerful with very little or no turbo lag.
Interior is clean and comes off like a German car with a little twist.
I actually use the on-dash dial pad often.
It's not simply a gimmick.
All in all, its a nice upgrade from my G37x but leaves me wanting just a little more.
Maybe I'll consider the new Limited Edition R-Design if it isn't cost prohibitive.
The brakes could use an upgrade.
They're adequate but on a car in this class they should be better.
If you're used to Audi, VW or BMW you'll be disappointed in the stopping power.
Also, on an R-Design model I wonder why we need a speed limiter at 130.
If I wanted to be limited, I would have purchased the T5.
The transmission is 6spd when it should probably be a 7spd.
Would love to have a DSG type implementation.
