The March European Car does have some excellent stuff about the new S60. The most interesting thing was to read the opinions of other manufacturer's engineers like Mercedes and others. They all seem to really like the S60!<P>-Drew
I like how they do the differing opinion thing from other manufacturers. Although, knowing they are getting printed publicly, I don't think I've ever seen a really critical writeup. That's okay though, you have to hand it to EC for doing that feature on styling.
Ransom--I bought the magazine and also looked for the website through Yahoo search engine.<BR>Couldn't find site. (My mag is at Ofc, I'm home). Maybe a poster could look and index/<BR>credits page and see if there is a site.<BR>Or I'll try to contact you tomorrow. Yes,<BR>the mag is called 'European Car' and the<BR>referred to articles are very insightful.<BR>Or try another engine---Lycos, Excite, etc.
Ransom & bobmac...<P>You can read the S60 article online.<BR>The site: <A HREF="http://www.europeancarweb.com/" TARGET=_blank>http://www.europeancarweb.com/</A> <P>Here's a great search engine I use: <A HREF="http://www.bos2.alltheweb.com/" TARGET=_blank>http://www.bos2.alltheweb.com/</A> <P>Enjoy.<P><P>
Thanks Rob---<BR>I might just add that readers should click<BR>on the 'this month' tab so that they can read the 2nd article in the same magazine-----<BR>background information as to 'how's and whys'<BR>of the S60 design and some quotes about the<BR>S60 from CEOs/heavy weights from competitors.<BR>Good stuff!
I think that Euro Car is not as good as it used to be. My impression is that most of the articles reiterate the corporate blurb, there's always very little substance and plenty of holes in their testing procedures. There are a limited number of tuners which appear all the time and the other tuners tend to get overlooked or downplayed.<P>And nearly 85% of the pictures in Euro car use the same yellow gel gradient filter.<P>I am still trying to figure out what the hell they are talking about in the S60 article, first page picture caption, which says the "S60 2.4T is a low-pressure turbo normally aspirated engine, and the S60 T5 is a high-pressure turbo normally aspirated engine". What the heck is that supposed to mean, the turbo is blowing into the atmosphere? yeah I know it's a typo but there are lots, and MaxPower is even worse, I counted at least 20-30 typos in one issue.
