    not much else? you should drive it too, thing pulls pretty damn hard. i actually drove the v70r, not the s60r but i m sure they are almost the same. oh yeah, check out the interior, great seats and beautiful gauges. its a pretty fine car all around. i dont care much for s60 looks though. definitely cool suspension.

    i raced my friend's a couple of times. we went from a 35mph roll and up to about 100 i started taking him, but not by a lot. This happened every time. maybe hes not a great driver, but he has been driving stick for 3 years, and i have for a month. he had an extra passenger in his car and so did i. i would like to see how i would do against him from a stop, but we havent raced yet. i will when i return to the states.


    ps. this was in my r32.

    I had a semi run in with an S40 today. I was going really slow because I was behind an SUV on a one lane road with double solid yellow lines. This S40 comes up behind me and almost clips my car as he passes me and the SUV. I got pissed off and went after him once the road became 2 lanes and passed the SUV. He gets caught up in light traffic and as soon as I'm about 5 cars back, he flashes his hazards and turns off the road. What a tool.

    I do love the seats in those , but I think my car pulls a lot harder.

    where are you in CA? I had a run in w/ a brand new grey S40 the other day when I was in the loaner C240 they gave me. I let off the gas when I pulled ahead by half car length and he kept going and flashed his hazard lights.

    This was in Diamond Bar CA btw. maybe we ran into the same guy. Or people who buy S40s think they're all that...lol

    The biggest problem with the s60r and Volvo's in general is an almost total lack of steering feel.
