Hey,<br>Finally after looking at many different S60's i finally purchased one. I cannot wait to read up more on these cars and see what all i have been missing out on! Woot, upgraded from a 94 POS jeep.<br>Few questions tho,<br>1. Im taking it to the dealer to have the ecm reflashed, is there anything else i should have them do like turn that neutral swich off for better driving? ( its got the geartronic)<br>2. Are there any good volvo s60 magizines? <br>3. Are there any good sites where i can pick up some OEM parts for the car? My air box has a chunk missin from some A-hole. Or any aftermarket sites that might be a better choice?<p>Now for some pics;<br>I payed $11,300 for it with 74k and all the options its an 2001 T5 with black leather interior. Also took it to a large volvo dealer and they said nothing was wrong. Is that a decent price for that car? Thanks!<p><IMG SRC="http://i31.photobucket.com/albums/c398/casej18/Picture119.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://i31.photobucket.com/albums/c398/casej18/Picture110.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://i31.photobucket.com/albums/c398/casej18/Picture109.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://i31.photobucket.com/albums/c398/casej18/Picture106.jpg" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">

It was very hush hush at the time as you weren't supposed to have that done.<br>They (Volvo) finally had the light bulb go off when they realized that it (stop neutral) sucked and was the way to fix the clunking 01 trannies was to remove it

All of them lose the stock cold air intake and give you a big heatsoaked cone.
