talked my VW loving girl friend into getting a volvo!

i already have a s60R and my old built 745 is now my brothers. needless to say, we love our Volvos!

2005 awd s40 t5. 6spd, passion red, t-tec interior, body kit, the peg looking rims, and fully loaded.

Did your S40 come from VT by chance? I swear I saw that for sale on CL given its rarity.

but she wants a 09 vw rabbit:(
You need to convert her! My girlfriend thought I was crazy when I first started shopping for a Volvo (she imagined a brick), then she thought I was spending too much money on my car. Now she wants a manual C30 for the weekends and an XC90 for every day! She's a keeper, I just need more money...

The wife and I will get an XC60 one day I'm sure. Keep the S40 for every day use and I'll have my E92 M3 for the joys of a V8 and styling that makes panties drop :cool:

Damn I love red S40 with body kit!!!! And also no FWD downpipe is different form that of the AWD, it sucks, you will have to go custom downpipe or pay premium to get it from Viva or elsewhere

Woah, Kyle, woah! I thought you said the E92 had bad fuel systems! And not just the fuel pumps. I scratched Bimmers out of my list because of that. My shortlist got shorter.

Just made me realize that S40 looks much better than even S60r...
It depends on the angle and lens! The S40 needs a little suspension work to make it really pop, the R needs a bodykit to make it pop....lol. Check my sig.

The S40 doesn't look good in side profile...unless you use a verrrrryyy long lens.
