We just had a short stay with an S60 T-5 equipped with the spaceball. I haven't driven a manual version of the fwd Volvos before, especially a new one, and was excited to try out the spaceball.<P>Overall, the design is pretty cool. It's very unique and isn't nearly as big in person as it looks in the pics. The gearing is kind of tall, and the movement from 4th to 5th could be smoother. Otherwise, it's a great alternative to the automatics.<P>Now, I have to wonder who's going to put together a short shift kit.

I have yet to drive a new 60/70 series Volvo with a manual transmission. Hopefully, I will get my hands on one of them in the spring. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif"> The problem is that my dealer only gets manual transmissions equiped cars if people order them and put a deposit down. Otherwise, they would be dead space on the dealer lot unfortunatly. I remember it took my dealer almost a year to sell a black base level S70 with a manual transmission.<P>-Drew
