Hi...<P>We just bought the base model S60... and we couldn't be happier. It's much sportier than we thought it would be. Its very comfortable, and very responsive. Although we will always love our 98 S70, I think we have a new favorite now.<P>Tom

Hi<P>I am thinking of getting the 2.4 base model as well. Did you get the 15" wheels? Would it be worth it to get the 16" wheels?

If I were you, I would definitely go for the 16" wheels! The 15" wheels have 195/65/15 tires, where as the 16" wheels have 205/55/16 tires. The 16" look better, will give you better handling, and better dry traction. The compromise in ride quality for a 15" and 16" wheel is minimal. They should feel the exact same. The best part of the deal is that it is only a $500 upgrade. I say, go for it! <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/biggrin.gif"><P>-Drew<P>
