Nice shots Iceman, those Thors look awesome!<P>Where in Vancouver were those photos taken? North Shore perhaps? <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif"><P>

Coastal, <P>Thanks, I really wanted the Thor wheels. I just didn't like the looks of the Orbits.<P>The actual locale is Coquitlam. It looks a lot like North Van but just not as ritzy.<P>Pat

Ahh Coquitlam... would have been my second guess. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/wink.gif"><P><BR>Looks like those rims would actually be easy to clean too. Hmmmm, wonder what they'd look like on an XC. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/biggrin.gif"><P>

Yep, we're lucky here in Vancouver. The houses in my area are relatively new. I think the oldest houses around here are only 15 years old or so. And, people definitely take care of their houses around here.<P>Coastal, so how do you like your XC? My wife and I are thinking about trading in the Explorer next year when the V70 AWD starts coming with the Haldex system.<P>

I'm super happy with the XC.<P>When it came time to shop, there really wasn't anything else that I wanted. I toyed with the idea of a 2001.5 Passat 4mo for a while but when I found out it was going to take 4 months to deliver, I talked myself back into the XC, which I had been wanting all along. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/biggrin.gif"><P>Nice colour choices too. Here's a pic of mine <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/wink.gif"><BR> <IMG SRC="http://www.v70xc.com/pics/coastal/DSCN2907.jpg">

Iceman,<P>Congrats and great looking car! <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif"> Those 'Thor' wheels look good. I see you have the rear mudflaps, did those come with the car? Have you considered getting ones for the front as well? BTW, now you can put a link to the pictures of your car in your signature. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/wink.gif"><P>-Drew<P>

Yannis, if your asking about my S60 the colour is 426 Mystic Silver Metallic. The colour seems to go well with the Thor wheels.<P>Drew, the rear mud flaps do come standard with the car here in Canada which is odd because when I was speaking with the sales guy he didn't tell me this when I spoke to him about getting mud flaps all around.<P>The reason I didn't get the fronts was because he said they didn't look good on the vehicle. Now that I have it delivered I'm going to go talk to the parts guy and get a look at the front ones and maybe get them installed after my 1500km visit since the rear ones look great.<P>By the way, I just barely got in under the wire for my dealers first two years of scheduled maintenance for free. It expired at the end of February from what I've been told.<P>Pat

I am sorry, I was asking about the XC posted here. I can tell that your beautiful AWD is Silver Metallic!<P>That's nice that the Canadian S60AWDs have rear mud flaps, standard. Here, they do not come with any.<P>Yannis<P>

The Thors came as part of a package. The specific package was the Premium package with DSTC and the 17" Thor wheels. Amazingly the premium to get the Thors over the Orbits worked out to be only $500 CAD in the package.<P>Pat

Thanks for the prompt reply. I just bought the same color S60, but the dealer would not let me do an upgrade. I'm looking into getting some new 17 inch wheels. I really like the look of your Thors but the Tethys wheels are also great looking too. Do you have any rubbing of the tires? I have heard some people experiencing this with 17 inch wheels.

My salesman told me that the only way to get the Thors was to get the whole package. I haven't had any rubbing of the wheels on the inner wheel well that I have noticed. They seem to be fine.<P>Pat
