    Unhappy Imported post

    Apologies for going half off-topic...

    Anyone know if it's possible to get an S60R via the overseas delivery program?

    Thanks

    YES it WAS possible. However, I understand all of the S60R and V70R OSD allocations for 2003 have been sold off. It may now be possible to OSD order for 2004 deliveries. ...but again I can see Volvo making the R car sales very restrictive as it&#39;s my understanding they make little to no profit on them. My guess is that the current R car sales to US will not exceed 5000 during their production life time. If you want one of the current R cars act now rather than later or wait around for someone to sell theirs in another 3-4 years.

    Good luck -- I love my S60R and do not intend to sell in 3-4 years. &nbsp;

    AM-

    Might be able to get one not yet shipped from your local dealer&#39;s allocation and then pick it up at the factory? Worth a check? William would know... or you can call my rep Duane.

    Thanks guys... for the record, I&#39;m quite happy with my XC, but a friend is considering a S60R...the Volvo dealer he asked didn&#39;t seem sure about OSD/TDS availability. I&#39;ll suggest that he look at www.flyvolvo.com

    AM: if you&#39;re serious about buying an S60R post back and I&#39;ll make some local inquiries wrt what LT has said. I do know there are S60Rs to be had at some dealerships who&#39;ve received their allocations but don&#39;t have buyers. This was one such case at a dealership about 80 miles north of where I live. They simply had it out the back collecting dust.
