PoC XC90: Saw it in person

<IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/gallery/generated//FWD%20and%20AWD/XC90/Pirates%20of%20the%20Caribbean%20XC90/010__scaled_600.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>As luck would have it, I was driving past the back lot at a local Volvo store when I saw a black XC90 with large black rims and a funny looking gold graphic on the back - nah, couldn't be it? I turned around and sure enough, it was the Pirates of the Caribbean XC90. The one time I don't have my camera!<p>Wow, what a great looking XC90 in person. No graphics on the passenger side which really lets you get a feel for the mods. The 20" wheels look just right, the suspension looked to have been lowered slightly, the tinted headlights were very slick, as are the tinted rear lenses. <p>Lucky part 2: the service advisor comes out with the key- 'it just got here 15mins ago' <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> They did not know they were getting it. We proceeded to check out all of the "little" things Volvo did to it, he said "lets see how it sounds" - he fired up the V8 and wow did that Borla sound fantastic - very deep! Volvo needs to offer this as an accessory or one of our advertisers needs to talk with Borla and make this system available!!<p>We hope the owner makes an appearance on SS - it is a fantastic looking and sounding XC90.

I like it (without the graphics of course). I wish they would have offered that color.<p>I think volvo should have offered that as the 'sport' model. It would be cool if you could get back there and get closer pics of the rims, painted calipers, the lowering, the stance from the front and rear, etc. <p>What confuses me is that when I look at the pic of the 'pirate' vs pics of other members lowered XCs with 20 rims, something 'seems' off <p>Either the pirate is only minimally lowered and the tires are huge to fill the wheel well or it's really lowered but they fixed the stance to keep the tires aligned properly. Seems like in members pics, the wheel well opening still looked huge, the tires are squatting, etc .<p>

I was able to see it again today - man, it is a bad.... looking XC90. Before I post a bunch of pictures we are going to try and get a hold of David.<p><IMG SRC="http://www.icstew.com/volvo_misc/poc_xc90_02.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>

OMG.....those rotors look way too small for the wheel. I guess that I am used to Brembos filling the gap.

I personally like the blue ocean version!<p>Now give me a blue ocean edition version with a D5 engine and I'll be all set! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0">

Hey, the XC90 and V8 badges are in the wrong place! Actually they look kinda good moved in, right above the pipes.<p>Tom.

I am assuming it was the closest dealer to the winner's home.<p>
