Glad you stuck to Volvo Bryson! Is that you in the passenger seat?
No sadly, I wont be taking ownership till after the holiday weekend. It's up at Re-Volv I believe. Ben hooked me up big time!!! And thank you, glad I stayed in the community too, I honestly meant what I said to you back in the other thread about loving it here. But let's be honest, after giving away my goodies it was time to move onto and R!

I HAVE to go to Carlisle next year, missed 2 years in a row because of work. I would have loved going and meeting some forum members in person along with showing off my S40... never got a chance. The S60 looks like it's gonna be a crazy comfy car to drive whereas my S40 wasn't! Never know what kind of numbers she was putting up, ugh, oh well. Just would have been nice to know what 16 months worth of my time(learning auto work from knowing nothing)and money culminated to. I was really hoping for 250whp, I will have to make this next car fun!

When you pick up your R. You will have about 250whp...so it will have the horse power you were hoping for.

Before I say anything I admit I have a ton of research and threads to read about this car, learn the weaknesses and strengths. But I have every intention to do my fair share of modding, I'll try squeeze a lot out of the stock turbo and if anything starts to fail internal-wise just buy reinforced replacements ;-) I will have this car for a long time so it should be a fun summer-fall!

First order of business will be to replace the spaceball!

That means I must have seen this caR in person then... I didn't take many pictures this year either though, spent most of my time just catching up with old friends.
