      I used to be, but moved. I think the others I knew (not that there were many) also moved or ended up selling their R's. I've seen one or two post since who live in Utah, but they don't post much.

      There is an '06 VR in Layton and I've seen a couple SRs as well but I don't think they're enthusiasts. There is (fairly recent) Passion Red VR owner that is on here but I don't think he posts much.

      Yeah I see R's pretty frequently but didn't know if any of them were car guys or not

      Are you the guy who bought his friends R super-cheap? If not, there is at least 1 other, but I forgot where on I-15 he stops.

      There is another guy floating around that has a clone sonic blue V70r of mine that posts from time to time.

      Burr and Spinall are referring to T8fanning. He's still around, but is working on a sweet 242 turbo, but he still has the V70R. I have pictures of my caR next to his to prove it. I've never spotted Burr, but I keep my eyes peeled. What part of Utah are you in? I'm in Provo. There's a flash around here too and another titanium with Chromey-pegs.

      There are 4-5 of us in Park City, mostly V's, two Ti's, one Red, 1-2 S60R's. And another friend with a V in Bountiful. I think the other Ti is the only automatic.

      Rich, been awhile. Cool that you still have your VR. How many miles now?

      I used to live in UT (relocated to WA a few yrs back). We had a few meets back then with about 4 people showing up each time.

      Hey Justin, 130,000 miles and still can't find something I like better. Maybe we can make your M5 in to AWD. I'm considering having Platt or Seat Cover Company do a refurb to the front Atacama seats. And I need new summer shoes (the new P7?) for canyon carving, we may need to do a Ruth's diner meet this summer with the folks on this thread.

      Nice. I'll keep my eyes peeled. I'm in the local Volvo facebook group if you want to join. There was a big euro meet at IKEA last Wednesday. We had 8 Volvo guys there. Every Wednesday at 7 there's a smaller meet at in and out burger in Orem that a few Volvo guys go to. I might make it this weekend.

      Cool. I remember your ATACAMA being more durable than on my SR. I'd be curious to see how the refurb goes.

      Rumor has it the next generation M5 will have AWD (Bimmer keeps that stuff close to the chest). Already have almost 8,000 miles on the ///M. FUN car.

      I am totally down for a meet at IKEA, it's a bit of a drive for me but not too bad. It's a nice central location for everyone.

      I'm in Orem in a silver VR with black Pegs and tinted windows. I may have to hit up the IKEA meet sometime.

      I'm not currently living in Utah, but I am originally from Salt Lake City and visit quite often. Heading up this weekend, as a matter of fact! Can't wait. Planning on moving back this year.

      7:00PM at IKEA. They are once a month. There is one this week. I'll see you there. You can meet the local Volvo group. We got a few cool cars. One made two pics into the IPD photo contest. I'll likely be leaving Provo around 6:30 or so. This meet is for all Euros, so you see a lot of Golfs and Beamers.

      Ah crap. I thought I posted that it was tomorrow. It's on Wednesdays. I was keeping an eye out for you. That's totally my bad. I won't be there next month, but you can meet other Volvo guys. Tonight we had a small turn out. I think we only had 5 cars.

      When I wander around the intermountain west, I pull through Ken Garff for an oil change.

      There is a black 1995 T5R (yes, a tad rare, I know) that has a lady driver. I believe she works downtown.

      Hi Utah folks. Old thread, but I'm looking for advice on experience with Ken Garff SLC. My red v70R lives up in Jackson, WY and I've taken it to Ken Garff in the past for simple service things. They have a truly amazing detail guy too.

      Unfortunately, this time I'm in need of a body shop for some simple work from a fairly minor (phew!) rear-ending while I was at a stop light. Does anyone have any experience with the Ken Garff body shop, specifically? Or has anyone had their R worked on at Ken Garff at all? Good experiences?

      I'm 5 hours away so trying to decide where to do. Billings and Boise are also in similar range. Thanks!

      The local Volvo expert is Roy. He used to do service for the SLC dealer. All the local Volvo guys like him. I would ask him. This post is likely 5 months late, but it may help someone else out.

      Also, I've mentioned this before, but I thought that I'd bring it up again. 7:00 PM on this Wednesday there is a large euro meet at the Ikea parking lot in Draper, Utah. There will be several of us Volvo guys there. Come meet us and if you think that we are not scary, join the local Volvo club. It has a monthly membership of $0!!! It's just a Facebook group.
