Re: C70 D5 on order (koen_dr)

Congrats! I got my C70 T5 yesterday and it's an AMAZING car. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <p><br>Your car will be a MY07, so you can order it with Ipod connector.

Re: C70 D5 on order (BenES)

Well, that's funny actually, that I meet someone from our regions...<br>I've got the 17" sadira wheels with 235 45 R17 tyres, but maybe in the future the 18" Draco wheels, but they are too expensive for the moment...

Like my "Nereus" rims for my XC90. They are at least twice as expensive as atlantis just because it's BBS split. And no, I never split them, but It sounds cool <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: C70 D5 on order (koen_dr)

is this a diesel? (sorry for the confusion)<p>the brown interior is not available in the U.S., which is too bad. The brown interior is beautiful on the Porsche and the BMW. I think it looks very rich - like REAL leather.

With the seat in the same possition as the old convertible it's not less leggroom. And the new one is roomier in the front. I'm 190+ and I sitt a lot better in the new C70.

Re: (After_Shock)

In Belgium it's limited to 163 hp for taxreasons...<p>You pay 1250 EUR instead of 2500 EUR to bring it into traffic. The T5 had also better the horsepower of the S60 2.5T -> 210 hp = 2500 EUR instead of the 220hp = 5000 EUR to bring into traffic <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/rolleyes.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>To bad they do everything in Belgium to promote those diesels <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/frown.gif" BORDER="0">
