hmm... the orig poster fails to see that we are only trying to help by figuring out what his car really is :-\

Sorry guy, but we mean no disrespect but we cant help you based on the fact that it has an R badge and some other things that the dealer told you. Remember we are trying to help, with out proper info it is impossible.

Do I misunderstand or do you not want me here? :(

Hey man....don't bail on us! :(

You just have to realize,to us 70 series owners the S70R is like the holy grail.They were not imported to North America so there are none here.For that reason many S70 owners have purchased an R emblem and "made" a S70R.Most of the time when a noob from this continent shows up and claims to have an S70R,it's just that the car is badged as an R,and the new car owner doesn't have enough knowledge yet to know the difference.Don't take any offense personally,we're just trying to see what it is you actually have there......but you are a welcomed member no matter what the case. :)

Here is what I can say. The car looks basically like an s70. The seats are leather with a diamond pattern sewn in. All the leather is 2 tone. I think thats what its called, and the doors have silver trim that say R when you open them. Would getting a new charge cooler be worth it?

I see. Wife has the car but I asked her to pull the number off the windshield. She said it was "hard to understand" but she believes it is, YV1LT58AXX2593618. I will pop the hood and check the engine number when I get home

The "X's" in the VIN are a problem. As a result, my copy of the volvo parts program is showing it as an invalid VIN. Re-post an accurate VIN, and we wil be able to tell you more.

Cheers,

An aftermarket intercooler always is a great performance upgrade if you spend the money on a quality piece with less flow restriction.Be prepared to spend $$$$ tho.

The S70R has alcantara seats. The passenger seat is electronically adjustable like the drivers seat and the speedo is BLUE ! Grey speedo = T5 or others, blue speedo = R (S70 and V70). The R has also the 305mm brakes and a different chassis. Of course he also has a different front :) the R front

Best luck on your R !

Another good check would be to see if your rear seats are heated, check for a button next to the 12v plug in the tunnel console....I mean if its an R its probably equipped with everything, but I don't know, you're in mexio, maybe no cold weather package

Its also something I don't think anyone who wanted to make an R that bad would mess with
