Hi everyone, I'm back...sort of. I took a very long break from the forum for various reasons. Lots of things happened in life. When I heard about Alex, it prompted me to check out the forum again. So here I am with a small update.

And the update is that I acquired another Volvo. It's a 2011 XC60 T6 R-Design. 300hp, AWD. We've already put 7-8k miles on it and is currently sitting at 121k miles. Everything works as it should and the twin-scroll turbo is pretty potent. From a standstill to about 50mph it just takes off. Midrange is a bit flat, which is why I'll probably get the Polestar optimization as a Christmas present. Here are a couple of pictures:






...and yes, I still have the S70. It's still running strong at over 170k miles.





Oh yeah, and we moved to Georgia.

Looking at those photos, are you living in Savannah by any chance?

Thank you all!

@MWF, I'm in Athens.

I haven't really switched to the SUV side, it's primarily my wife's car, and we drive it on road trips occasionally. I'm never getting rid of the S70. In fact, I might be picking up a 98 C70 manual in a couple of weeks with 285k miles. Just want to save it from disappearing into oblivion.
