      Greenville SC. On the way home from work on Friday, I nearly snapped my neck checking out a nicely modded Titanium VR heading west on Millennium in front of Humble. I was in my wife's silver Xc70 with heavy tint. The Ti R was dropped a bit with dark silver/Ti TSW type rims. Very nicely done.

      What is that, a set of driving lights in the lower grille? Looks like passenger side lower fog grille is a mod of some sort. Wrong side for an intake. Driver's side looks normal, sort of.
      I don't like the wind deflectors on top and side.

      I parked next to a '06 Titanium/Gobi GT VR at Lowes in Rochester, NH on Saturday. The owner came out as I was admiring the car and it's guard rail damage on the driver's side. The dude said his dad fell asleep scraping the length of the car. A major shame since the car only has 48K on it.

      I typically drive slow until I get to a fun road. Then anybody that has never been on a fun road with me before wonders wtf has gotten into me lol. That's one of my favorite parts about the R is that it's perfectly happy to cruise around at a relaxed pace while I turn on the Pro Logic, try to get some decent fuel economy, and dodge the potholes while I'm on the boring roads. That's the vast majority of the driving I do, so you guys are gonna have fun stereotyping me on here in 30 years as random old dude that somehow randomly landed a cool Volvo .

      I don't do that... I tried hypermiling Elsa. 15% increase in fuel economy. Not worth it. Totally not worth it. I get 21mpg normally... I

      I commit myself to getting up in the rev range every Volvo once its nice and warmed up every time I drive it. Keeps 'em happy.

      That's me. A way into my office opened up with a new road. No curb cuts or driveways. Parkway like. I loop around and take it every once in a while instead of crossing three lanes to make the left right off my exit. At 7am, I am sure the TH units all wonder why a red volvo wagon is booking along from 0-80 for a short, curvy, sloping, upward perfect pavement stint.

      oohhhh I got ya beat! I took the R out to the library today and took the twisties and did a few 0-50 WOT runs and averaged 16.2 mpg! (I haven't had it out if the neighborhood in about a month so I felt like giving it a good workout) I bet the guy in the Honda Accord I parked next to (but far enough from that he couldn't ding me ) didn't do that LOL.

      Normally around town I get 22 in the R and about 24 in the T-5R......and around 32-33 in the '99 .

      I do try to get the P80s up to at least 5k at least once every time I take them out, but I save it for the fun spots. I just don't get anything out of dragging between the lights with some dude in a Corolla S.

      Well sadly the most Rs I've seen around have weird owners. Some very young kids packed full with their friends. Some in awful shape (door dents and scrapes everywhere). When I see a clean one, I smile. They probably think I'm weird looking at their car and giving them a thumbs up in a Mustang but I still love Rs to this day.

      Today, must have been around 6pm, silver 04 SR merged into I405 N from Bothell/Mill Creek. Had red license inserts from a used car lot. You went North on I-5, I went South.

      Today, 4:50 PM. Spotted NB on West Howard St. @ Quincy Ave in Quincy, MA.
      2004 V70R. Ti Grey. Pegs. MA reg 8888 RY. Some kind of LED fog lights or something. Tint, maybe 40% or 50% (it wasn't too dark). Looks like you might have had some stickers on the back but I couldn't catch what any of them were.....or maybe it was just the salt making it look like stickers.

      Hmmm...never would have thought going that direction. Have seen/heard of Volvo peeps installing Jag wheels, but not the other way around.

      Those look like ipd replicas with winter tires on them, no?

      +1


      Maybe it's his winter ride so he doesn't have to take his real R out in the salt?

      Yes, IPD reps.

      I wonder how the F-type R's diamond cut wheels and ceramic brakes would look, if they could fit and someone was willing to spend the $$$

      Silver SR pulling out of Kundert Volvo today in Hasbrouck Heights. Was on my way home from work when I saw it. Had gobi interior, sport kit, no winglets and a HUGEE droopy lip. Older gentleman driving it. Anyone here?

      Spotted a passion red v70r at Moppert paint and body today on 322 in Swedesboro. Stomish? Who's ever it is, let me know how the paint body work goes. I plan on getting my bumper and hood painted soon and that place is right in my back yard!

      Heyyy! Yep, thats my baby! I've heard nothing but good things about Moppert, so I chose them after my car was involved in a hit and run. They were even nice enough to give me a high end rental car, a Nissan Armada!

      Saw a silver S60R on Riverdrive in Moline, IL last week. Is that anyone on here?
