    New to me Flash Green V70 R..........from Japan.

    So my local indy brings a few cars in from Japan and he mentioned the flash green V70 R to me. When it arrived, i took a video for someone else who was looking for one, but all of the time I really wanted the car too.

    Anyway, the other guy found one somewhere else and I decided to go for this car. Flash Green, 2005 geartronic.

    So far, sunroof needed fixing and I've replaced all the coil packs.

    The cleanest car that I have ever owned except for brand new company cars.

    Thanks Adrian.
    You mean because of fuel prices that you wouldn't have one now?

    Thanks!!

    I think that we get a lot of car for the money in most cases, and we're just addicted to them. If my local Volvo indy hadn't have brought the R in, then I probably wouldn't have one now.

    Always wanted a p2 R after several p1's, but it was basically love at first slight.
