Hello everyone, decided to sign up for these forums since the new car I will be picking up for myself today is a new Volvo S60. Im really really pumped about this car and cant wait to pick it up around 3pm.<p>I was originally going to get an S40, but ended up dealing with the internet sales people at the dealership, and got a better deal on the S60 than the S40. Hopefully I didnt get hosed, I thought it was an awesome deal considering how expensive an S60 is. One left, got it in black, just your base model though, no bells and whistles. Free bluetooth in it, except I dont even think my phone is even compatible, ill just put it in there and turn the speaker phone on so I actually look important or something.<p>First thing I really noticed is that its EXTREMELY comfortable, maybe too comfortable I dont wanna fall asleep on the road you know? I was slightly disappointed that I didnt get the neat centre counsel that the S40 has, but I guess im just a sucker for that kinda stuff, but the car is beautiful and I love it.<p>I just graduated from school and im going to be going to grad school pretty soon, so lets just say, im not going to be going out for awhile when it comes to money, and im going to buy myself a 2 year supply of ramen noodles <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Theres 2 things I absolutely love though and that's Hockey and Cars, so those are the only 2 items I really splurge on. Well, just wanted to introduce myself and tell you all about my car im about to get.

lol, k.<p>My car's previous owner was Daniel Alfredsson. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/tongue.gif" BORDER="0"> Not really a hockey fan myself, but it's still cool to see his signature everywhere in my car's record book.

Re: (C70drvr)

Thats fricken awesome I want Alfredsson's car, its way better than George Costanza driving John Voights Lebaron (The Dentist).<p>In other news, first day with my new car, I almost get into an ACCIDENT. <br>Im going 45 in a 50, some jackass turns left into a plaza RIGHT in front of me, like RIGHT in front of me. I SLAM on the brakes, I miss the back end of his car by an INCH it looked like, everything just seemed to be in slow-motion. Unfortunately, I was too dumbfounded to think about turning around into the plaza and chewing him out, I just couldnt believe I was so close to crashing my car after ONE day. I have no idea what I would have done if it happened.<p>Seriously, for anyone in Michigan, Michigan drivers are terrible, never move over in the left lane. Im about 20 minutes from Canada, and everytime I take a trip to Toronto or Ottawa, the drivers there are SO much better overall. This is just what I notice here anyway, since I spent my entire life here.

Re: New User Here Saying Hello (Pez)

Heck I would shop at IKEA if we had one here and im not even Swedish, were actually getting one soon though. I hear for the grand opening they give out free swedish food or something, no joke. Thats worth it alone.<p>Plus, imagine how cool id feel pulling up to an IKEA in a Volvo.

Saw a V50 there too...<p>If that theory holds true then I think Toronto either have a lot of Volvo drivers, or just a lot of Swedish ppl. There are 3 IKEAs within 25 minutes drive of each other here in TO.

Re: (Pez)

Yeah Pez, all my family grew up as big Red Wing fans, when I started following hockey when I was little there were two expansion teams, Ottawa and Tampa, and I picked Ottawa as my team, got their jersey and stuff.<p>Just never had any interest in the Wings, wanted to be different, etc. Ive been to the Corel Centre for 3 games, 1 playoff game included. Ive also watched the Sens play in Detroit, Pitt, Buffalo, and Toronto, and plan on going to see them v. Philly if they play in the playoffs this year.<p>Cant imagine cheering for any other team.

They just changed the name from Corel Centre to Scotiabank Place a couple months ago.<p>So I'll keep an eye out for a lone Sens fan at those away games then! The line up's getting pretty thin tho with all the injuries piling up. Practically the entire starting lineup's in sick bay now...
