      I don't care for the look of the 2014 XC60's, but in the RD, they look fantastic! I like that they retained the "old" exhaust tips on the RD! The color is actually perfect to go along with the (most likely) off-black interior. Black Sapphire Metallic looks kick-ass as well on the new RD. I always liked the brushed aluminum covers they put on the RD. I put a set on my last XC60, and when I traded it in, I had the dealer swap them onto my 2013 XC60 I traded for. I think they complement the Electric Silver Metallic perfectly! I believe they should put them on all models, they do on the XC90's (?)

      Congrats, love everything about it. The hood lines look so sharp (the "U" as it curves back toward the cabin).

      I had to check my driveway to make sure my RD was still there. Even down to the window tint that my XC60. I saw my Savile Grey RD parked in front of the dealer and when I went in I just said "I want that one" and picked it up the next day. The XC60 RD is one quick SUV. Enjoy!

      I'd be interested to know the MPG you're getting off of these?

      First tank scared me with 17 mpg mixed driving. Second was 19. This one is currently over 20 so it seems to be getting better as she breaks in.

      Really nice! I'm considering buying a white 2012 R-Design with 49K. High miles but for $30K it's a pretty sweet car. Or I may go with a new 2014 Premiere. Nothing to exciting except it's a new car. Thoughts?

      I too was hardcore Subaru. They are good cars. We've had three over the years. I traded in my 2011 Legacy 3.6R for my wifes 13 XC60 w/ Polestar and I inherited her 2011 S60. Subarus are great cars, but if you don't get a WRX or STi, they are all boring and not particularly fun to drive.

      So we used to be an all Subaru family... now we're all Volvo. The S60 is just so much more fun to drive than the Legacy.

      Here is my 2013 T6 taken at night the day I bought it, a little grainy, but that silver looks awesome at night!

      Nice car.
      Silver actually hides dirt a lot better. I had a silver S40 and would not wash it for months, but it looked clean!

      New member and new XC60 R-Design

      New member, traded in my 2010 Subaru STi Hatch to accommodate our growing family. Bought a 2015 XC60 R Design and have to say i am officially a Volvo convert. Very impressive car and i am now looking for a second Volvo for me to use as a daily driver and to tune on the side a little bit. Being in Germany i am also trying to find something cool to bring back to the states.

      Here are a few pictures of the XC60 we brought home 2 weeks ago.

      Thanks, I am very happy with it. The way it looks and drives. The only thing missing is the polestar badge which is in the mail.

      It is beautiful. It appears to be the same color as my wife's 2013 XC60 T6. She loves hers as I'm sure you will yours.

      Thanks guys. I really was upset at first when i found out the Rebel blue was discontinued, but after receiving the vehicle at the factory i was very pleased with it. The whole experience at the factory was amazing....especially the museum. Highly recommend to anyone thinking about overseas delivery.

      Going to look at a few cars for a commuter/project this week. Tonight i am checking out a 89 740 Turbo, Saturday a 74 145 and maybe a 65 122 Amazon. Will keep everyone posted.

      Love the color- same as our '14 T6. If you have a choice, go for the 740. As a 945 owner, I am partial to that body style. I am getting ready to start bringing my '93 945 back to top condition to use as a commuter. The other candidates you list are great as well (I've always liked the 140 series), but probably not the best for an everyday commuter.

      Thanks for the advice. I'm torn because i'd love to have a 145 or 122. The 740 was very nice, in great shape for how old it is, Turbo still pulled hard, no smoke and extremely clean all around. Every service record and paper from day 1. Has 137,000 miles, it's German spec, but i'd bring it home.

      Finally took delivery... :)

      I was able to take delivery of our new Volvos last week here in VA. We ordered our 2015 XC60 RD through military sales on Okinawa pretty well spec'd out, and we lucked into a great deal on the 2013 S60 RD after another customer ordered it and cancelled. The delivery experience at the dealership was nothing special, but these 2 vehicles are simply fantastic. These are our first Volvos ever, and I am wondering why we have never owned one before. We really couldn't be happier with our new rides, and I am extremely impressed and pleased with both. I hope to do a small review of each here in the future (I will post the S60 one in the appropriate area), but in the meantime here are a few pictures:

      you bought 2013 at the same time as 2015? or did you have 2013 for a while now?
      those are some nice rides.

      Welcome to the Volvo family. Awesome rides for your #1 and #2 Volvo! We got our XC60 from James Brunt as well, picked it up last summer in Alaska and drove it down to the lower 48.
