The R has the ground effects option, that puts two wings on the  lower 
valence that is known to scrape with very low clearance.  They can be  removed with 
4 fasteners on each side.  I just saw a set of these add on's  this morning, 
as the volvo shop I visited today just removed them from one of  the S60R 
because he couldn't get out of his driveway without scraping  them.  The car looks 
fine without them on the front, and adds another  4in of front end clearance.
I agree that the R I5 sounds just like a stromung.  I'm telling you,  those 
volvo boys have been lurking here!

Is your friend's car bodykitted? My stock V70R has  no problems scraping
unless you have a big dip and I go way too fast into the  dip. The "rubbing"
you're talking about are the steering limiters- they're  there to help
prevent actual rubbing. They're removable if you don't mind  risking rubbing.

Engine sounds like an Audi I-5, same warble, I'm  confused. Sounds just like
an Audi when paired with a manual trans and  aftermarket exhaust- I came
across a modded S60R while driving the V70R- when  he stomped on it, sounded
like an S-car with Stromung.
