Hey people!

I just spent my first 24h with my new s60r 2005 with 44000km. It has an auto box and nav system.

I'm coming form 3 mazdaspeeds ( a 2007 MSP3, a 2007 MSP6 and a 2010 MSP3) so it is quite a change for me. So far, i went from, I should have bought that s4 with 130 000k on it to, you know, this is a great sounding car. I used to own a Mazdaspeed 6 that I sold partly because I thought it was too big and it was a gaz-guzzler... I'm not saying the s60r will be better, which I think it won't...but the interior feels more intimate. Anyway, any single forum I've read on the car had 3-4 posts saying '' don't buy the car, it's a money pit''...and I bought it anyway,,,it is my 25th car (and I'm 37!) and it's my first european car...i kind of expect to put money on it but at the same time wish it won't happen.

What I'm happy to discover is the passion I read from all these owner on swedespeed and other forums... can't beat passion for a brand.

Here is a picture of my car at the dealer. I negociate it so I would get replicas of pegasus mag wheels on it also.




I'm happy with the car....altough I'm still half-expecting my dashboard to go christmas tree on me. Already I have to level up my headlight (found how-to on this website) and have the car properly aligned....and I can't get under 13l/100k

but I love that engine sound.

And the understated look. And the fact that people think I made a ''logical'' choice going with a Volvo!!!

Welcome to Swedespeed, Philippe.

Looks like you got the last Volvo R at Volvo Pointe-Claire...

Edit: Sure looks like that ES is pulling a chain!

ES

Yes, I saw that car on their website and was kind of expecting to see it at the dealer but it was nowhere to be found.

I think that the ES is an acquired taste and I'm only making my first baby steps in the Volvoworld.

having said that, I used to own an Mg Midget and a '76 Mini and I can see some resemblance in the front end and the front fenders.

Also, The MGB GT has always had some sex-appeal on me. I can also see that car in the Volvo.

Anyway, thanks for the welcome.

I really appreciate reading posts on this website. Thanks for being part of the people organising it.
