      Danny, who bought my '06 R, looks to be busy transforming it. Here is what the car looks like now:

      I can't recall the name. Damn nice wheels though, but I did prefer them better before he painted them. Expensive wheels as well. I believe he's changed the grill out as well....let me see if I can't dig up the picture from Volvospeed.

      Oh man, those VSTs look terrible... Swedish Yellow would be better than those.

      Silver is the best color with Sonic, even titanium looks ok. But Gold? so sad...

      But why didn't you keep the Swedish plates? Well, at least they are still being used.

      I gave him one and I kept the other. I don't want to put the Swedish export plate on the E63 though. Plus I still have two on the XC90.

      LOL, I like the wheel, but I preferred the silver color. But to each his own. I haven't seen the car in person since he put gold wheels on.
      He knows what he is doing though, so he'll make my old R a great ride.

      Maybe the buyer wanted an STI instead?

      Next time you guys have a GTG, let me know! I'll pop down in either the XC90 or the MB.
