The current C30 front end is a lot better looking than the newest S40/V50 front end, IMO. Something about the one long grille on the bottom just doesn't look as good as it could...
Or, something like this: <IMG SRC="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_FoXyvaPSnVk/Sih9oCgxg7I/AAAAAAABzuk/hjL0r3V7fWA/s1600/2011-Volvo-C70-8.jpg" BORDER="0"> <BR><BR>

Not really digging that ^, something about the lower front bumper just doesn't seem powerful. Needs a nice aftermarket lip (I'm sure Heico, etc will have a nice option) to give it a more aggressive stance...
I've ordered the 2010 C30 T5 R-Design (Titanium Grey Pearl) with U.S. specs. My order sheet says that it's AWD. Has anyone heard if they have started taking orders for the "limited edition" C30 yet? It is priced at $29,000 USD and I have it fully loaded with all options except the Navi system. This sounds too cheap to be an AWD 300hp C30. Can anyone confirm or deny this price? Am I the only person that thinks this is too cheap for an AWD version? My car will arrive in August. I'll make sure to post photos and specs as soon as I get the information. I'm like alot of you in that I can't find any REAL photos or specs on the 2010 models anywhere yet. The only photos I've found are of the 2010 Concept C30.
I think it must be a mistake as there is no AWD option at this time.<p>Also, I'm not sure what concept photos you are speaking of. Never seen them myself. Are you sure they aren't photos of the original C30 concept.<p>
It sounded too good to be true. But I was expecting to get a FWD car and that's what I'm getting. Can't wait. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"> AWD would have just been an added bonus. As before, I promise to post pics when it gets here.

I figured I would share my findings since I recently placed an order for a 2010 c30r.
