I'm a loner, it seems, in the Southeast PA area. Every so often I see a 2.4i or I get the pleasure of seeing a "RARE" T5 driving around, but it's usually driven by a family of uppity, angry looking people. It's so rare that I see other Volvoites, when I tell people what I drive, I hear "oooooh, you drive a VOLVO," then upon seeing my little box-o-fun on wheels they change their tone to "wow, yours is 'different' somehow!"

Am I the only spirited P1 driver in the Greater Philadelphia area???

I'll check out that Carlisle thread.

I need some Volvo friends so I don't feel like a Lone Ranger anymore!

To be honest, I doubt that I've seen you. I've only seen three v50s around, each has a soccer mom at the wheel, and none have been T5. I'll have to look more carefully the next time I go through that area, I'll be the white s40 driving 2mph looking for the T5 badge haha

I've got a silver v50 t5. I'm no soccer mom. I'm over between Frankford and Northern Liberties. New Kensington(not as bad as the name suggests)

Are any of you that are near philly t5 with a manual? I'm kind of curious how others similar to mine sound. Not much to compare to drive driving around.
