Default Buying S60 R (need advice)

Hi everyone.

Im new to the forums and have a couple of questions.

On Monday, I might be closing on a S60 R but am still a bit hesitant due to lack of knowledge.

At our local Volvo dealership, there is a:

2005 Volvo S60 R
Performance Package
Sunroof
NO navigation
NO seat heaters
120 Miles (pretty much brand new)
Silver
With Premium Sound (bose)
5 yr 50 thousand mile warranty
3 Years of Free service (oil changes, check ups, etc...)

They are asking $37,950

Is this a good price? What do you think I should offer?

I belive this is a pretty sweet deal, but know you enthusiasts would definatly know.

Anyone have any insight that might help?

Greatly appreciated!

-steve

Use these to find out what the going price is in your area

Is that price the window sticker or already lowered from the sticker. The reason I ask is u can use the fact that its an '05 and got 120 miles as some leverage.

There was no performance package. Premium or sport body kit maybe? Manual or auto? And 17 or 18" wheels?

Hey! Thanks for the quick response!

To answer your questions,

Automatic Transmission
17 Inch wheels
It has the body kit
And youre right, "Premium Package" is what it has.

Seems like a good price to me. Although if 18 inch wheeles are availabe, I would have to get those...

But does 37,950 sound reasonable?

That sounds really good with that equip. My guess is the sticker is around $43,000?

Well...I bought it. Plain and Simple. Also, it came with 18inch wheels, so thats a bouns.

I live in Texas, so im not too dissapointed that it doesnt have heated seats. They are nice, but not a necessity

Cheers,
