The Office - Lecture Circuit Episode<p>I would have highlighted the car, but I figured everyone could spot it on their own. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0"><p> <IMG SRC="http://lh6.ggpht.com/_NF_7E5UWYkI/SlfIQSdFheI/AAAAAAAAB5k/ANEYCJy1QUQ/s800/volvodar%20small.jpg" BORDER="0"> <p>Who else has spotting skills like I do? <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"><br>I know that Dr. Wilson on House has driven a silver 3.2 and green (Willow Green?) V8 (both are '07 or '08 based on the trunk label). Any one else have second gen S80 spottings? Post 'em up!

I knew I saw an S40 in a Billy May's commercial for this handsfree phone device. <p>Okay. Back to topic. S80 spottings. Hmm.

How about while on the road? My "<I>Volvo-dar</I>" is far stronger and sharper at night compared to day time... especially when I'm approaching them from behind. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/tongue.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>The rear light profile is practically unmistakable. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/cool.gif" BORDER="0">

From behind, Volvo's are unmistakable. But from far, it is a little hard to differentiate S40's from old VW Jetta's (I think they're Jettas), and from the side, the back brake light profile of Civics is quite similar to S40s (Only from the side). <p>But Volvo's with xenon's from the front are easy to spot, but they are very few of those 'round these parts.

I can easily spot one coming in the opposite direction. It's a shame they aren't standard for the V70 though...
