I also have a v8 XC90, superb engine I must say. Did very well in a blizzard as well. The only thing the XC90 would benefit from which it does not have is a good air suspension like the Land Rovers. <p>854T5 my comment about your comment was that your comment brings nothing whatsoever to the discussion. Except leading to my comment which again brings nothing to the conversaiton. And no, I am not sensitive or unhappy with my LEASE. I have had many many cars, some fancy some not and I am quite enjoying my R.

I'm hoping for a 395 hp 340lb of torque 3.5 litre TT I6 unit with a rear biased AWD although the V8 wouldn't be bad either I wonder what would weigh more though???

Re: (zigger)

If we're talking automatic vs. automatic my money is on the S80 V8. It may be close 0-60 but eventually the V8 is going to out run the 2.5 liter turbo setup. I have both and dream of the V8 (preferrably blown) in a future R.<p><TABLE WIDTH="90%" CELLSPACING=0 CELLPADDING=0 ALIGN=CENTER><TR><TD><i>Quote, originally posted by <b>zigger</b> »</i></TD></TR><TR><TD CLASS="quote">I don't think the S80 V8 would be able to take the R. Its heavier and has 8 Hp more..</TD></TR></TABLE>
