so i drove an 09 T5 today to check it out as a possible replacement for the 07.

http://turnervolvo.com/new.inv...=7484 Yes, the website says 2.5T but it's a T5.

Holy CR*P. it's a totally different car. not only are there changes to some of the switch gear inside, but the seats and seating position, noise level, brakes, steering, etc etc are worlds apart from the 07 2.5T.

i may stick with the volvo family after all.

because I'm getting a buy back and need a car before then.

Plus I don't know if you want to buy a first year model just after a re-design.

Re: WOW! T5 (ExBimmerBoy)

Kevin,

So, what do you think of the Sport Chassis? Did you get an explanation of 'automatic levelling' and what it does?

My '07 S80 hasn't had any major problems yet. So it *should* be okay to buy a first model year.

Re: WOW! T5 (Penguin)

no no explanation. I'm not sure that's really a feature for the US models to be honest.

But it was like..ALMOST... driving a BMW again.
