We took delivery yesterday and I'm still on that new car "high". When we drove into the dealership, it was poised right in the middle, shining in the sun. I knew it was our car as soon as I saw it(plus the mudflaps gave it away). Everything went fairly smoothly and she was finally ours. I drove it home on the expressway and wow, what a rocket! This is definitely a highway cruiser. Later on that evening, I installed both the child and infant seat. Yes, this is a family truckster. I also got the rubber floormats and the cargoliner in anticipation of future spills. I'll post pics ASAP....Bob

Bob,<BR>Congrats and welcome! I, too, got rubber floormats for my (now-four-months-old!) S60, and they're great. Also, I see that you have little ones riding in back, so I think I might have some cool tips for you on how to keep your nice, new Volvo (oh, yeah, and your kids) clean, safe, and happy. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif"> I'm hoping to get around to writing up a little kid-proofing article shortly -- already took the digital pics, just have to get around to typing in some text, which I'll then send to George to post if he/they see fit to do so! If not, I'll just summarize and post for you at a later date. Welcome, again, and happy motoring! <P>

Thanks everyone. I smile whenever I think about it(the T5, that is). All of a sudden, running errands just got a little more exciting. Bob

Congratulations! <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif"><P>What options (besides 17" wheels and graphite leather) did you get? I don't care about pictures... I want specs!<P>Did you get the integrated child booster seats? I highly recommend them. And so do my kids. I was able to get them added to my car before I bought it.<P>And yes, it's all about the rubber mats.<p>[This message has been edited by daimoni (edited 08-03-2002).]

Daimoni,<BR>The options: leather seats, Touring package, geartronic(wife has to drive it too), cold weather package, integrated booster seats(kids aren't quite old enough yet), and 17"Amalthea wheels. A nice touch is the memory seats for each car alarm. I also plan to tint the rear and side windows. Bob

I'm thinking about adding mudflaps before winter.<P>And I can't say this enough... I <B>swear</B> by the integrated booster seats... when your kids are old enough, they'll love 'em.<P>Happy motoring!<P>(now get off the computer... and get driving!)<BR>
