Soooooo embarassingly enough some of you may know that ive been on the forums now for some time and yet havent been a volvo owner, although ive been buying parts for one <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/rolleyes.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Well the day has come and i have found my T5 volvo. Its an 06 with 40K miles on it still under factory warranty. FWD as the AWD in a 6 speed has been a chore to find. Interior still looks new and the body is near perfect. Im very happy with the purchase although doesnt have heated seats which the wife wanted. <p>Car has been preplanned trust me so the mods will be done as the cash rolls in (or my track car sells).<p>Enjoy... i have <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> <p><IMG SRC="http://i107.photobucket.com/albums/m311/ForceFed_Motorsports/DSCN0544.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i107.photobucket.com/albums/m311/ForceFed_Motorsports/DSCN0542.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i107.photobucket.com/albums/m311/ForceFed_Motorsports/DSCN0543.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>Sorry bout the lame pics.

Oh man, a prime candidate for turning into a beast! Jealous! I was sooo close to pulling the trigger on a car last winter, but the SELLER backed out at the last minute(fell in love with the car again), leaving me with not enough time to line up another car before school started <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/frown.gif" BORDER="0"><p>Sweet though! Looking forward to following your progress!

Good to hear you found one finally. I know you were trying for the one that was modded, but look at this as a clean (and more importantly, unmolested!) canvas.<p>AWD would be great, and you sure do miss it some days, but there are advantages to not having it. You're lighter, and have more trunk space. This is what I tell myself when I start kicking myself for not being patient and finding an AWD.

Re: I'm new!!!!! (ForceFed Motorsports)

Since your a newb and all, before you ask any stupid newb questions, do a search first. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Congrats on the New S40 T5. You already know this but you will love that car!!! On the brighter side of not getting the AWD, the ATP turbo kit is plug and play. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> I think you will be one of the first to seriously mod an S40. And I for one can't wait to see what you have in store for that bad boy!!! Congrats again and here's a <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/embeer.gif" BORDER="0"> to you for becoming offical.

Re: (kpsingh0)

10th of May? Push it back to June and I am more able to go...Sana told me about a big volvo thing down in Phoenix on the 16th, I don't think I could make two trips that close to each other...

Re: (kpsingh0)

Guess that makes me a somebody!!! just kidding lol. But seriously sponsors are easier to get than most people think. My track car was fully sponsored by Corbeau. Just sold off the free stuff they gave me too this last month <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">
