So this is a bit of a story and an introduction. TLDR: I got an R again.
Several years ago, in a galaxy far away (California)
I bought an 2005 S60R (Titanium grey w/ auto and body kit) and it was good.
My wife (at the time) and I loved the car and drove it with great abandon.
Sadly the warranty ran out (8K+ of work on 3K warranty in 2 years)
With great sadness the car was sold to Carmax.
The R shaped hole in my being has never healed.
Fast forward several years (No wife but 100 series land cruiser added)
Have been searching to fill the R shaped hole.
Checking Carmax for 5 years (Thanks Jalopnik and Doug D) to get the warranty.

Pick up the R at the beginning of FEB in Sacramento.
It is everything I remembered and more (6 speed instead of 5)
S60R with ~68K miles
Carmax Warranty 4 years or 125K miles
A special shout out to:
Dave, Craig, Wendy @ Performance Techniques in Campbell, CA for the buyers inspection. Great service and Carmax is now fixing many things under their 30 day warranty. ☺
