Thought I'd drop in an say Hi!. I've been lurking here for a while but now I have something to post about... A new 2003 V70 T5 was added to my garage December 30. http://********************/smile/emsmile.gif

I'm hardly new to the Volvo experience though. The first Volvo I drove was my Dad's 1973 145. The T5 will join my 1988 245 and my wife's 1997 850 sedan. Looks like I'll be needing an extension on the garage. http://********************/smile/emwink.gif

WELCOME!!!


As a V70 T-5 owner I know exactly how you feel! What color? Options? Automatic or manual?

Do you have any plans for any future upgrades? I know...you just got it and here I am...But you can metamorphose your car like


Hehe! Again, congrats and welcome!

Re: Newbie member (GrecianVolvo)

Thanx for the welcome. http://********************/smile/emsmile.gif

The car is white. The only exterior option is the Amalthea wheels. For the interior I got the premium package with Taupe leather seating. (I know the graphite would have probably looked better but the dark color would absorb too much heat when the car is parked at work in Louisiana).

Beyond those options, the car came with everything I could possibly want. BTW, it's got a standard transmission, like every car I own. http://********************/smile/emlove.gif

Future upgrades?
1. Pay for it. http://********************/smile/emwink.gif
2. Maybe add the CD changer.
3. Add a tow hitch so I can trailer my GSXR to track days.

Performance mods? I know this will disappoint - but I have no plans to increase the performance except for changing the brake lines to SS. All my performance modification money is spent on my motorcycles.
