    S60R 2003 Silver/Nordic Blue

    Hi everyone. Can anyone give me an idea of the value of my S60R please? It has 74,000 miles and is in good condition for the year. Everything is original. Thanks.

    Pre-face S60R even with low mileage won't fetch a great deal unfortunately....a few enthusiasts will break them as they're worth more in parts. I'd say £3000-£3500

    Many thanks, Stephen. Any suggestions as to where would be the best place to advertise it? Just purchased a 2011 S60 T6 (with body kit and Polestar upgrade) and my wife won't let me keep the S60R too, lol.

    Facebook pages seem to be the best place to sell these cars. I help run VT....feel free to join and list the car. There are a few other groups worth joining too, the more the merrier and better chance of selling. VPCUK also has a Cars For Sale section....

    I stand corrected lol ..... still a nice one. Knew it didn't have the "R" wheels but appears to have the R front spoiler and looks like an R logo on the grill too. I've had my one since 2006 and kind of hate to see it go but I just love the T6. Had a BMW M3 an inch from my tail last week at 50mph. I was in the outside lane of the A1 approaching a 50mph speed camera. Dropped it down a few gears and gave it the boot after the camera. I may have caught him by surprise but he was a good 3 seconds behind me when I reached the traffic lights about half a mile up the road.

    Yup .... and they just HATE it when a Volvo beats them. He had a mate in the passenger seat too. Was in the T6 not the R though. The R comes in about 6 seconds but the T6 is even faster as I have the Polestar upgrade.

    If you break the car and the engine, Gearbox, Haldex, rear diff etc etc are all OE and in good working order, then you could easily make £5000 - £6000 in parts! FACT!!

    As a car, even though you mileage is very low, it's at that sort of age (and mileage) where many things that cost loadsa money will start going wrong, especially if it hasn't been religiously serviced every year. Saloons are nowhere near as desirable as the estate and typically fetch around 30-40% less in value than the V70R models. Of course, yours is a Silver (Very nice colour) with soft Nordkap leather (Nice if you like dark interiors) but not as desirable as the Attacama but still much nicer than the Gobi.
    I think Stephen is spot on with the estimated value of between £3000-£3500.

    Do you mind me asking why you want to sell it?

    Keeping the car will mean spending around £5000 - £10,000 in 5 years completely refreshing the suspension, failing parts and upgrading the essentials, like the IC, remapping, replacing the shocks and renewing all the bushes with poly etc...not to mention servicing costs (typically £150-£350 a year).

    If you plan to keep then you'll need to be very understanding and accept the fact that these cars are not cheap to run. If you can't do that or expect to run it on a tight budget, then the car will fall by the wayside and let you down, ultimately affecting its value.

    The good news is that S60R/V70R prices are on the up after stabilising around 12-18months ago. Happy days!

    £3500 ish, more in parts, but for how long itís worth more in parts is soon vanishing, as an example V70Rís are already generally easier to sell and hold money better to the point itís not worth breaking one.

    I broke one recently for manual conversion parts and popular parts go fast and your left with stuff that doesnít sell.

    Hi Lee. Thanks for the info. I need to sell it or my wife will leave me (I know what you're thinking and it has crossed my mind lol), as I currently have an S80 V8 Executive, S60 T6 (3.0l) with Polestar upgrade and Volvo body kit, XC60 , S40 and the S60R of course. My best mate is THE top Volvo Mastertech in the country and he maintains all my cars for me. Can't see it costing that much to maintain over the next few years as it has been fairly well looked after ..... the adjustable dampers even work which I believe is unusual for this model.

    Many thanks for the info, Ettienne. Not an option for me to break it for parts. Would break my heart to do that anyway. Have owned this car since 2007

    Hi .... sorry but she has gone now. Went to a Volvo enthusiast, so happy about that. He is a young chap but this will be his third S60 (and certainly the fastest lol).
