Does anyone have pics to the 2004 S40? I just heard some rumors about 5-cylinders including the HPT with manual transmissions at some excellent prices. The only thing I've seen to date are some initial drawing.

Here is what I posted in another thread

Can' tell you in detail but I have had access to what to the car is going to look like. A sportier version of the S60, a little smaller but with as much room in the rear seat or a tiny bit more. It is very unique in regards to the exterior; from the top it looks like a sailing boat...very streamlined in the front, "fat" sides and tapers sharply in the rear....VERY NEAT!<p>ANd in a couple of years you will a drastic redesign of the in;ine engines... Which will enable some pretty neat packages like a...T-6 engine in an S60 engine bay... <p>Yannis

Re: Here is what I posted in another thread (GrecianVolvo)

Would you know how it compares in size to the Audi A4. My wife really likes the A4 and is thinking about that car when the lease is up on the S60. I would prefer to remain within the Volvo family. The main reasons we did not go with an S40 this time around were its size, lack of a manual transmission and that it didn't seem as solid as the S60. If these issues are addressed in the new model and the ride is as sporty, if not more so than the current S40 and is competitive with the A4, then I think she'll stay in the family!

I have nothing to base my question for you upon Yannis, but are you certain the S40 will be larger than the Audi A4? The new A4 is a direct competitor to the S60 and the S60 is not all that much bigger than the A4. Plus, being Focus based, I'd imagine it'll be a little smaller. That's just a guess mind you...
