So I just got back from the bank to sign off on the loan for the car, and I got a call from my agent friend at the Manheim Auto auction..... WE WON THE CAR!!!!! :mrgreen::mrgreen::clap::clap::woot::woot::bow::bow::thumbup::thumbup::beer::beer::beer::beer::beer::beer::thumbsup::thumbsup::cheers::cheers::cheers::banana::banana::banana::stig::driving::driving:

It's a 2005 Volvo S60R Black with dark blue interior, 48k miles, Premium, Convenience, and Comfort packages- still under warranty.

I have pics, but they are from the condition report and aren't the best. The car is gonna get trucked to Keystone Volvo (great group of guys) and get a thorough once-over. They're gonna send me more defined better pics then and I'll post them here.

The best part was the price I got it for. Based on the Kelley Blue Book value (I know, I know... inflated and all that), I saved a great deal of money. :mrgreen:

Oh and sorry I started this thread without pics or the actual car, but I'm just so excited and relieved. Plus I figured all the threads in the forum are constant works-in-progress examples and are constantly upated.

Yup, 6 spd manual. The '05 had a little faster processing computer than the '04s and upgraded suspension software to combat a bat side hop that plagued the early years. Plus the '05 has a few different and subtle interior trim pieces that makes a nice place to be even nicer.

This must be exciting for you No Boss... congrats! I'm glad you held off for the Volvo... a Mazadaspeed3 wouldn't even be in the same league in any aspect.

I am a little peeved to see how cheap such a nice car is in the US, but enjoy it and post some pics soon dammit! :D
