C30 final pictures, not a shop of the concept?

Kinda screwed up with the topic title, but who cares:<p><IMG SRC="http://img150.imageshack.us/img150/4102/volvoc30200601kl1.th.jpg" BORDER="0"><A HREF="http://img150.imageshack.us/my.php?image=volvoc30200601kl1.jpg" TARGET="_blank">http://img150.imageshack.us/my...1.jpg</A><p><IMG SRC="http://img213.imageshack.us/img213/8199/volvoc30200602pg5.th.jpg" BORDER="0"><A HREF="http://img213.imageshack.us/my.php?image=volvoc30200602pg5.jpg" TARGET="_blank">http://img213.imageshack.us/my...5.jpg</A><p><IMG SRC="http://img155.imageshack.us/img155/9140/volvoc30200603ld0.th.jpg" BORDER="0"><A HREF="http://img155.imageshack.us/my.php?image=volvoc30200603ld0.jpg" TARGET="_blank">http://img155.imageshack.us/my...0.jpg</A><p><IMG SRC="http://img225.imageshack.us/img225/2605/volvoc30200604xy1.th.jpg" BORDER="0"><A HREF="http://img225.imageshack.us/my.php?image=volvoc30200604xy1.jpg" TARGET="_blank">http://img225.imageshack.us/my...1.jpg</A><p><IMG SRC="http://img225.imageshack.us/img225/7028/volvoc30200605af7.th.jpg" BORDER="0"><A HREF="http://img225.imageshack.us/my.php?image=volvoc30200605af7.jpg" TARGET="_blank">http://img225.imageshack.us/my...7.jpg</A>

Almost every European car maker does this. Introduces a new model with plastic moldings, then waits 2 or 3 years and puts on painted moldings. Which cars you say? As far as Volvos go: Previous gen S40, S60, V70 (including R versions), S80. Other cars I can think of: B5 and B6 A4, E46 3 series, 5 series, X3, etc. It'll probably happen to the current A3 and GTI. Same goes for the exhaust. They start out crappy looking and small and eventually become big and shiny. Mercedes C-class comes to mind. Car makers plan refreshes from the start I think. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: (Shomare)

Note also the exterior rear view mirror has the new "BLIS" blind spot camera...interesting this feature should appear in the new "base" model Volvo.<p>Then again....Volvo just realized for this new year that given their safety image which is fast loosing ground to the competition, they'd better not lag and make "safety" an option.<p>I like the new C30..see it will evidently come with T5 and offer a sunroof. As others have said, I'd be cautious of potential torque steer if LSD or AWD isn't offered..especially if we see something in the nature of 260hp.<p>Rick

Keep in mind that the picture car is a fully outfitted model.<br>Doubtless some of the equipment will be optional.

Re: C30 final pictures, not a shop of the concept? (Thom)

That is such a good looking car in every respect! A3 and Golf owners eat your heart out! I was worried they would tone it down too much but that front, though S40-ish, looks more aggressive and and sporty and with 18's, this car is hawt!!!<p>Pending on available performance mods after the first MY, this might be my next new car <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

Wow, it's so beautiful. I love its 18" rims. They look better than the 18" on new C70.

Re: (sR-71 Blackbird)

I do not understand why they did not stick with the exhaust from concept. It should not be any problem make them triangle... Also new Honda Civic has them like that. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/confused.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/frown.gif" BORDER="0">

Save a few $$.<p>Also, for the triangular tips to really work, they would need to keep the rear bumper from the show car.<br>I liked the triangle tips too.

Re: (miata13)

BLIS will not be available until later in production.<p>The body kits seen on the concept cars will become available (in modified form) later in 2007 production (ex. two tone)<p>AWD will not be offered sue to restrictions in the load floor at the rear.<p>Unlilkely to see a "true" T5 engine in the car (ex. B5244T5), although an R version may surface eventually. It will have the S40 T5 (ex. B5254T3) and the 2.4i engine.<p>Great looking car!
