you guys are a great group of people !! and very helpfull along the way,

maybe some day i will pick up a polestar down the road =>

here is the old car, 2012 volvo s60 r design, i ended up tradeing it in with some aftermarket parts still on the car,
lowered the price 3 times to even 2,000.00 below kbb with not one single phone call or email! was on autotrader, ebay, cars.com, and craigslist

dealership trade in was a joke also, 2 dealership offer 18k for it, most were at wholesale prices around 22-23k this dealership was able to get 24k for trade in plus a tax credit

also lowered the price of the parts to a 1/4 of what i paid for them and could not sell those either after a month,

after trading the volvo in i have a bad taste on resale value on these cars is really bad,



if any one is intrested in buying its at the dealership now listed for 2k more then i had it for plus 800.00 dealer fee's

moving onto my new car
2014 corvette stingray in cyber grey
this car is a monster with almost 500hp with the after market intake and tune and good for mid 11 second 1/4 mile times, and still neted 29mpg on the way back
its a big difference between the cars,

Sorry to see you go. Your car gave me some inspiration to lower mine and put some wheels on it. You're gonna love that corvette though, I drove one last month and it's a rocket. Resale has never been strong with Volvo.... part of the reason I bought it was because the value to $$$ paid was really good but I'll pay for it when I go to trade.

Wow.. .what a difference... I'm sure I'll feel it when I eventually trade in the S60, but I'm pretty sure I'm keeping my 11 for a few more years and we're paying it off in just six more months... For all I know I'll keep her til she dies.

The Stingray is a beautiful car, I hope you enjoy it.

As for the trade in value, that really isn't a bad value for a 4 year old car.

Very nice upgrade! Loved your S60, and wish I could have picked up those wheels from you. Best of luck with the Vette!

Sat in the 2016 Stingray at the Tampa auto show a couple weekends ago--nice--love the functional louvers--did you get the monochrome flag wheels (don't know if they had them for the '14?) Enjoy your new ride...

thank oki,

this is the base lt1 model non z51, i really wanted the lt2 model with the z51 package but was out of my price range used,

im planing on upgradeing the wheel ASAP ,

the ride is surprisingly smooth, i just have to watch what im doing when the roads are wet,

the new a8 stingrays run 11.80s @ 118 stock, and the z06 are much faster then that ,
