Re: (S60AM)

I'm gonna be pissed when I put a Volvo OEM part on my car and it's stamped "Made In China" <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/mad.gif" BORDER="0"> <p><br>One of the cool factors w/ this car is the European post cards on every part - france, germany, etc...

It might be financially right for Volvo, but the side affects are not desirable, and sometimes more important. I understand Volvo is a company who wants to make money. We'll see, the article said they just want to go "window shopping". Hopefully one day, a european company will buy Volvo. Why did Volvo AB sell Volvo Cars in the first place anyway?
