      Very nice, and shiny! Congrats! Keep us posted on how it compares to the X3 after some more seat time.

      Traded in my 2011 S60 T6 for an 2016 XC60 T6 R-Design.

      The R-design is a 2.0L T6, and although I was apprehensive, it's quicker than my wife's 2010 XC60 T6. It's also quite modular in throttle response, although I have to get used to it a little.

      The supercharger wine is guite intoxicating, and the rush and sound make it feel like a four pot diesel than the lovely I6 I had before, but it's going well so far.

      It's a CPO with 7500 miles, so pretty happy with the purchase.







      IPD Sway Bar and End Links are on their way.... Considering changing to Eibach progressive springs and Koni FSD shocks in the rear.

      ^^ Very nice! Congrats! Keep us posted on more comparisons with the old T6, like MPG, repairs, etc.

      Let us know if you are able to source the Eibach springs. There are several manufacturers who make lowering springs for the XC60; however, many (including myself) have not been able to find a source for the Eibach springs.

      Congratulations on your purchase.

      Hi all!

      Just dropping in to introduce myself to the XC60 forum as a new owner of a 2017 T5 AWD Dynamic. I've owned multiple Volvos in the past 15 years, coming to the XC60 from a 2015 V60. While very pretty and wonderfully fuel efficient, the V60 had so many obscure/esoteric issues unlike my previous Volvos that as it approached warranty's end, I really just wanted off the rollercoaster. After working with Volvo customer service and arriving at an equitable deal, I was willing to give them another chance with this one.

      This time around I figured I'd do a slight size and ride height upgrade from the V60, and go AWD. Otherwise, the mostly identical interior layout feels right at home. Sport seats were definitely a must, and I've always loved the two-tone leather since first seeing it in the early R-Designs. The Altais wheels are a cherry on top.

      Looking forward to many years with this one, hopefully!

      2012 XC60 R-Design

      Hey all! First time Volvo owner, although I've coveted 850s, V70Rs and others for a long time, and have been lurking on the forums for a LONG time. Finally came time for a new(used) car, and found the perfect thing - 2012 XC60 R-Design Platinum. Although it has close to 80k on it, this was about as pristine as I could hope. There is literally not a scratch or blemish on it, other than a couple scrapes on the wheels. I'm not even sure anyone ever sat in the backseat! Wasn't sure about the red, but once I saw it and drove it there was no question. Only 10 days in, and I love it so far.

      The toughest thing so far is with all the safety features (BLIS, City Driving, Lane Departure), I realize my car thinks I'm a crappy driver.

      We turned off Lane Departure on the test drive and never looked back. Blis and City Safe are easy to ignore, once you get used to them. We tend to drive a bit more aggressively than they like. The adaptive cruise is the big surprise, we thought we wouldn't like it but we really love it! Of Course, we have the distance set to the smallest setting.

      Wow so this is how my D5 AWD would have looked like, pretty mean !!
      I had this identical car specked and ordered back in May but walked into my dealers to firm up on a few things in June and there was a demo XC90 sitting in the showroom also in black that just I just couldn't pass.
      Very happy with my choice as I already had 2 XC60's but that is one mean car. Enjoy.

      Thanks! I really liked the standard 18" black Leda wheels on the initial XC60 I was considering, but next to it was this one with the Altais wheels at comparable price and I quickly changed my mind toward getting this one, instead. Even at 20" there's more sidewall than I was expecting, which is good given some of the rough roads in my area.

      Can't blame you for wanting a change, especially after already having had the same car twice before. I've always liked the XC60, but didn't have as much need for the extra space and AWD until now. Enjoying it so far, thanks!

      Welcome back, looking good! Curious, what did you have before that you're coming back to Volvo from?

      20" isn't that bad on the xc60. I had to avoid another car that was going wide in the parking lot last night and scrubbed and then went up and over a bit of curb. No damage except some yellow on the tire sidewalk. If I had done that in my S60R that would have been a bent rim and bodywork.

      I traded in my 2007 V50 18 months ago and bought my wife a Mercedes C250. She got a new car, I got a different car - her VW Jetta Sportwagen. (Happy wife, happy life).

      But now the Jetta is gone and I love my XC60!

      Thumbs up First Time Volvo Owner

      Newbie here. Been on the forum a week or so and made an impulse switch from a CPO RX350 to a CPO 2014 XC60 T6 Platinum 23k miles
      Wifey will be driving and she is a wrecking machine, so figured the Volvo is a better bet
      Will get some pictures when i am back at home base.

      I am a litle bit hands on with my cars(oil/filters,ignition coils etc, but nothing more). Driving an 03 camry 210k miles, 01 rav 4 165k miles both brought brand new and never spent a dime on maintenance other than regular. Both run as smooth as silk.

      Had a 5 beemer for 5 years in between. Well that was another story . Fantastic driver, but MONEY PIT

      Safety is first priority with the family and so we are at Volvo now. Great forum this and i hope to contribute whatever little i can.

      I see that you ordered you XC60 in Ice White. That color scheme is not available in South Carolina.

      New owner to a 12 XC60 AWD T6 R DESIGN.

      This model was purchased with every available option excluding backup camera and premium sound. I ordered the 20" R design "Candor" black wheels from Volvo of Sweden. I'll use the 20" "Cratus" stock wheels for winter with some yet to be determined winter rubber. I changed the back half of the exhaust with Magnaflow, including tips and dropped in the K&N air filter. Ill be adding some big brakes with Volvo Blue calipers, and possibly the Snabb intake (still on the fence about that.)

      My First Volvo 2013 XC60 RD w/ P*

      First time Volvo owner, long time admirer, and lurker on this board. Picked this up earlier this week. Passion Red is new for me! Long line of black/gray cars my whole life. Looking forward to putting it through its paces and joining the conversation on this board!

      Here are a few quick snaps -- First, with her older brother, Paddywagon. 2003 VW Passat. Served me well. First new car, many road trips, camping, bike trips, baby transport, countless Lowe's trips, hauling band gear.



      My 7 year old named her "Cheri"


      need to take off the dealer badge and add a polestar badge I think
