I've read most of the reviews and most are very favorable. Now I'm asking the owners. What's your honest opinion? Is it worth it? Should I wait for the BMW retractable hardtop that is scheduled for next spring? Now that you're driving it, what's your honest opinion of the new Volvo C70? I'm getting close to making a decision in the affirmative.

Re: opinion (basirico)

I think this car is awesome. Although it's not blazing fast, but it's enough to get you in trouble. The stick is definitely faster then the girltronic I test drove and a whole lot more fun. Latest C & D said 0.85 cornering w/ the 18's and I have found it does handle better then I expected with very little cowl shake(specially compared to my J-H). Took my 70 something old parents for a drive today both top up and down and they even said - this car rides nice. I guess it depends what you want in a car. Had to laugh, as we were getting back into the car at a restaurant(quite an ordeal w/ the 'rents), a guy in a Ferrari 430 stopped to checkout my car-go figure. Order the Dynaudio! For the price, I am very happy. Thinking about a chip. JMHO.

I have a 2006 330xi and its a POS. I've had two external trim pieces fall off/come loose, A/C has this weird ticking sound when first turned on, sound system volume adjusts on its own (even if standing at a light) and some bad rattles coming from the back seat area. Next year I'm either going to buy a C70 or the MKV R32 coming out to the US in July.
