This should be a <B><I>Swedespeed.com exclusive</I></B>, as far as Volvo-related fora and discussion groups are concerned.

Why would the security package be 810 on the T6 and 675 on the 2.5T? Is there something missing on the T6? maybe dark tinted windows or something?<P>

Now it makes me want to trade in my 850 and get a XC90. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/biggrin.gif"> Decision, decision...... <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/wink.gif"> Oh wait, have to wait til the end of this year or early next year, damn it. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/biggrin.gif">

But in the 2.5T, they show an additional "$194 Savings" which leads me to believe that they want to keep the 2.5T low.<P>Yannis<BR><P>

Do any of you "dealer types" know what brand and type tire is on the XC90? I would think an all season of some sort would be appropriate. One can only hope that it will be winter rated, as well.<P>

But when I went to the NY Auto Show, the display car had the 18" ATLANTIS alloys with Continental tires (A/S). I am pretty sure that all XC90s will come with All-Season tires. Actually, there is no Volvo model in the entire line up that does not come with All-Season tires. I doubt that the XC90 will buck the trend.<P>BTW, I have been called quite a few things but never..."dealer type"!!!<P><BR>Yannis<P><BR>

re: "dealer types"; not meant as dirogotory; when I was in the Air Force, us pilots were refered to as "pilot types". I think there was a subconscious bit of envy in it; so I suppose you could take it as a complement! In any event, keep up the good work and the info flowing.<P>

I hope there are other choices than the Conti tires. My experience with them has not been good. I had a set on a MB E300, and they were out of round, which in my mind, was a mfg. defect, but no satisfaction from Conti or the dealer. Granted that was one instance, but it left a sour taste. I would love it if Nokian made a M/S tire in the size for the XC90, and by the time I get round to one, perhaps they will<P>

I know about the Pirelli Scorpions but I don't know anything about the Conti's. Does anybody have any info on these tires?<P>I'm assuming the ones on the 18" wheels are almost exclusively road tires.<P>Pat<P>
