Yahoo - took just over two months, but our new 2010 XC90 V8 finally is here. Picked it up tonight and have put a whopping 12 miles on it so far! Got a ton of user manual reading to do, as there ARE changes from the '04 T6 we used to have. Sure rides differently than the '07 XC70 we gave back to Volvo Leasing. One thing that surprised/disappointed me is that there is no longer a "V8" badge on the front grill. Oh well. I hope they're all like that and that we didn't get hosed! OK - got a couple pics - excuse the "not so cool" background!<br> <IMG SRC="http://www.pbase.com/w6jhb/image/115823028/medium.jpg" BORDER="0"> <br> <IMG SRC="http://www.pbase.com/w6jhb/image/115823133/medium.jpg" BORDER="0"> <br> <IMG SRC="http://www.pbase.com/w6jhb/image/115823025/medium.jpg" BORDER="0"> <BR><BR>

IMO, it's insignificant to drop the badge. If I've got a Volvo with a V8, I don't have to have a sign saying it's got one. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emcocktl.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: (1sttimevolvo)

The V8 badge is a seperate piece. It's a clip-on to the gill.<p>I took out the V8 badge front and back, 4.4, XC90, and awd in the rear. Heck, I've even took out the volvo badge at the rear. I like the cleaner look and it's easier to wax. <p>I don't need badges to tell/prove to others that I have a Volvo brand SUV with Model XC90, a 4.4 V8 engine under the hood with awd system. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> Like a Civic with a windshield tint band says "Powered by Honda" <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/tongue.gif" BORDER="0">
