<br>The local Volvo dealership just put their 2006s on sale - I was checking their inventory when I noticed one of them didn't have a transmission listed. I've been looking for a Manual for some time now ... so I contacted them to double-check the tranmission - bingo! Premium Package, Sport Package,<br>Audio Package, and even the leather color I wanted!<p>Walked in, test drove, filled out all the forms, and drove it home! <p>Now I just have to break it to my '99 Jetta that I need to sell her. Poor gal. <p>They said I should take it easy for the first 500 miles .... so now I have to<br>restrain myself from zipping around. Sigh. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/frown.gif" BORDER="0"><p>First things I think I may want to do - door pins, a bit of a sportier shifter,<br>and a clean no lines/no logos grill. Plus a debadge. I like clean, clear lines<br>without a lot of noise. <p>Yay me! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0">

<br>Just took a couple of pics. I hope to get more after it gets washed, waxed,<br>and the protectant coating that Volvo offers. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"><p> <A HREF="http://angui.sh/108_0882.jpg" TARGET="_blank">http://angui.sh/108_0882.jpg</A> <br> <A HREF="http://angui.sh/108_0883.jpg" TARGET="_blank">http://angui.sh/108_0883.jpg</A>

Protective coating that Volvo, or the dealership offers?<p>Most of those are simple dealer profit generators. Also, you couldn't apply it over the wax.<p>I would suggest using a quality protective wax, like Zaino or Klasse.<p>I prefer Klasse All In One myself, as it's easier to use and (IMHO) works just as well. Wipe on/wipe off is about as simple as it gets. The sealant is a little more difficult (on par with Zaino), and just lets you stretch out the interval between application.
