They're just jealous, that their cars don't handle like a car, but more like an oil tanker!

The same problems are here in Germany. The P1 is the best Volvo since a long time, but they - not willing to test it - point and say "crap". The only time I accept a "crap" is if the person saying that, has driven a P1 for at least a week.

Volvospeed is the new turbobricks. It's best to leave them alone and let them think their little world is "reality".

Personally, I find SwedeSpeed to be the best for tech info and such for the P1 platform.

I've barely even dabbled on C30World and already got in a heated argument with a guy who turned it into a personal attack against me and bashed things I've said on other websites. SwedeSpeed is my home and the website that has my loyalty. I proudly sport my SwedeSpeed stickers and I vote for this being the best forum for things Volvo related.

It seems that P1 owners seem to be some of the most understanding of all Volvos. Many of us here have owned or had bricks in the family and that's how we fell in love with Volvos. I think also, we respect the more mature S80 and the beastly new S60 because of the additional luxury that those cars offer. The kids with the bricks are either jealous or think our cars blend in with the crowd too much. Truth be told, the direction Volvo is headed is starting to blend in with other cars more, but the last ten years have offered some incredible cars and the P1s are still modern looking and quite rare in my area.

Heh...I saw them bashing your waterfall there. Can't really say I blame 'em. Posting something like that up is just asking for it as far as I'm concerned. That said, I think it's a much younger crowd over there. Swedespeed is probably the place that takes things the most seriously instead of making a joke of everything. They are pretty funny there usually...depends on what kind of mood you're in.

SwedeSpeed has a lot of sarcasm in the S40/V50 section, but I feel that while we may occasionally bash, there's more constructive criticism rather than flat out criticism here. I don't know, this is just the forum I call home :)

ya no for sure, THIS is the ultimate S40/V50 forum. Although I'd give 2nd place to c30 world because the car is the same platform (P1) and a lot of the same mechanical know how applies!

Most of the time when I need help on S40-related stuff, I get referred here (search engines, referrals from other websites). This is more of an S40-dedicated website. If I had an S60R, I'd be on both forums. But I'm not, so I'm here.

I beg to differ, i am a long time VSer.... SS R forum is full of know it alls. I troll SS, but i actually contribute to VS. and OP, your dash is hideous. That poor car!

On VS you actually have people that do their own work on SS R forum they pay people to do their work. I cant say the same about the other sub forums, i don't frequent them enough to give a opinion.

I was on turbobricks for a while (very helpful when I had my 745 and 244) but since purchasing the S40, this is where I need to be. You guys (or gals, really not sure) keep me out of a lot of trouble. I did quite a bit of research here and on other sites before jumping into the S40, I know I need a car that I can tinker with and get results out of......that's where you come in!

Fingerpainted waterfall, that's interesting. I can have my monsters do as they please with fingerpaint and the aluminum components and then I can get them clear coated! That's brilliant! I feel a project coming on......

Then all I have to do is get the paint removed from the hood and polish it and presto!;)

Let me guess: the Dude?

No matter where you come from, who you are, what race you are, what your job is and how old you are, he will know you better than you know yourself! And he can't leave an argument without going "below the belt".
