hey SS members,

I'm a lot more active on c30world, however, I mostly browse and read haven't posted in a very long time. I'm atl_cruisin over there. come to SS a lot to browse and read techy posts.

I just wanted to post a brief update of the car after 6 years. I have not been modifying as much as I used too but she still looks just as good as she did on day one :). I gave her a bath today and took some crappy cell phone pics so...well...here you go.

Pics don't show! You have to link them differently...
You can't do it as a gmail attachment.

6 years of ownership? The C30 was introduced end of 2007 in the states. 2007-2008, 2008-2009, 2009-2010, 2010-2011, 2011-2012 = 5 years!?

My car (one of the first series made for Europe) is not even 6 yet!

I bought my first NEW Volvo(240GT from Dick Dyer) in Atlanta in 1980 and went 20 years before buying another Volvo(S40 from Nalley nee:Chris)...plenty of vehicles in between, however.

I'm curious for the C30 drivers, especially long-timers...What, if anything, has really caught your eye as a replacement or substitute for your C30? Have there been moments of "I wish I had bought___ instead" or "For sure, the next one will be a ___" (could be another C30, natch ;) ).

Except for our desire for a convertible, our 'small' car could certainly be a C30(although the C70 is darned nice). Hmmm...what IF the next Volvo convertible IS a C30?!?!? The XC60 is the perfect size 'utility' vehicle...we went TALLER but shorter by trading the XC 70 for it.

Anyone REALLY excited about the 30/40 variants that 'appear' to be coming down the line? OR is the C30 a vehicle unto itself and a five-door version isn't even in the same ballpark?
