I'm going to buy a new V50, sport supension. Pretty sure. My biggest concern is: Am I REALLY going to miss not having/not getting AWD? <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/confused.gif" BORDER="0"> I had a '98 Sube Outback, currently a 2000 GT wagon, both from new. In all those years, I wonder how often/how much AWD added signifcant value to real world driving. Is Volvo's AWD worth the penalties of extra weight, increased cargo floor height, increased ride height, lower fuel mileage, mechanical complexity, and higher purchase price?<br> I note that you can't get Volvo's 'body kit' on a FWD car with sport suspension. Is that because it sits too low...might be a bit likely to be tearing off plastic parts along the way? I'm wanting to do Heico's 'kit' anyway but perhaps the 'too low'(FWD) logic might apply here also?
