I love the IS300 and was planning on getting a manual one next year until i saw these pics of the new S60 with a body kit.. Apparently Volvo will put its concept S60R into production as a S-60 T-5R w/ a turbocharged 300HP engine, 5spd tranny, All wheel drive, and some other goodies.... All at under 40K.... And it's coming by around next January..
take a look

hmmm...it is a Volvo.....enough said.

You guys simply are pecker heads. Quit trolling so damn much...you won't convince any of the IS owners to regret their purchase. You need to move past this fixation.

Talk about the car's performance etc that is fine...but what is your deal with beating the IS? Damn kooks.

~250 hp, not 300. Under 40K, maybe and/or barely. Good deal, hell yes but it's still going to handle like a Volvo despite the awd. A definite consideration, though.
VR6, you are a small little boy.

Looks like a grandfather mobile Chris. Make sure to hold your dentures when you accelerate and try not to cut too many people off when drivin 20 mph on the freeway.

Go drive a volvo. Go drive a lexus.
If you can't figure out which one you're supposed to buy, you wouldn't know how to appreciate even if you had it.

I would rather drive a GSR anyday which will both out handle, out accelerate and flat out out class that pile of **** overpriced Toyota Camary called IS300 anyday. When the hype over some ****box rebuilt Corolla dies down, you will see where real performance is at.

Sophie very true, a car that outhandles, outspeeds yours! Nuff said. Oh but wait you got that cool dash ..right? Please flaming on my car doesn't affect me one bit. The fact is you spent alot for a little. Just pointing out the facts not flaming. Funny how I know "your" car better than you did.. Let me guess you bought the yellow one because it matched your finger nails at the time? LATEZ

Not too worry Sophie,

"GSR" was on the Hyundai forum trying to convince them his GSR was better than an Elantra...

GSRsobe,
Your little acura maybe fine for a 16 year old. But this is a man's car.

I drove a 2000 5 spd every time I went to lunch for 3 months. Sure it may accelerate fast. But if you put a lawnmover engine into a plastic bottle with wheels, it'll go fast too.

Next time Tyco makes a car, I'll be sure to tell you about it so you can go run and put your name on the list. Check your piggy bank.
