Any more information (or just speculation) on the 6-speed auto for the T6? If you want the T6 & are not in a hurry and/or avoid first-year vehicles, this could be a very significant upgrade.

CAR magazine had a favorable review in a comparison test w/ X5 and Allroad. But it left the authors in a "quandry" as the handling didn't match stature of the rest of the vehicle (body roll, etc.). Sounds like a sports handling option might be a fix, has Volvo ever offered such a thing before?

I think someone in this forum mentioned that the 2003 Jaguar S-Type uses a new, more compact, ZF Friedrichshafen AG 6-HP-26 6-speed automatic transmission, which is also on the E66 7-series.

Since Ford owns both Jaguar and Volvo, it could be possible that the tranny can make its way to the XC90.

A bit more info on the tranny can be found at http://www.zf.com/MTAusgabe/MTA2.asp?lang=1&mID=15&mtID=41&mtListID=0&rsc=/zf_group/aktuelles/zf_partner&section=
