So, I have recently had the urge to get a V70 of some sort. In an ideal world, I'd be at the dealer ordering a new V70R, but I have a budget, and need something I can use for work, so back to reality...<p>I don't care for FWD, so I'm looking at AWD V70's, and really like the idea of a V70R, something in a '00 model would be nice. I have a couple of questions, though.<p>Is it as simple as replacing the shocks on the Nivomat equipped cars to be able to lower it? Any lowering suggestions?<p>I generally don't care for automatics, but with the V70R, obviously, I have no choice. Anyone track their auto-equipped V70? I won't do it often, but I want the option. Also, is the automatic pretty responsive? I had an Audi A6 2.7T with the Tip, and I hated it. I always caught it off-guard, it seems, and when it would catch up, it was not the smoothest thing in the world.<p>Any other feedback is appreciated as well. Thanks.
