Hey guys,

I am here in Geelong. I get the Great Ocean Road and the Otways to drive my XC 70 around. love the car. Came from a V40T and a V40 before that.

I'm here! Total newbie to this community too...

I'm a Brisbanite, and I know of (but haven't had a chance to meet yet) one other local S40 owner, and have met (and bought a set each of KW suspension) a fellow owner in Perth.

I'm fairly new to the whole Volvo ownership thing, having had my S40 (Phase II 2.0T) for a few months now. I do, however, have two Volvo-powered cars; the other is a Focus RS... ;)

Welcome Dan and Smokehead. Driving much?


Thanks knut! Yeah, I'm driving a bit, but splitting the mileage between two cars - so as to not rack up 50,000km a year in the RS...

Love the S40 though; it's sooooo much more comfortable for around town - and highway work, as it actually has cruise control. No fast (Euro) Ford has that little feature...

How many of us here are in Sydney?
There is a strong chance we are moving over from Perth before the end of the year.
Would be cool to liaise with some Sydneysiders for help :)

New 1998 V70 owner here in Sydney hoping to find some info on my project

Hopefully someone will see this..

New volvo owner here.

Picked up a 2009 XC90 3.2 LE as the family barge.

Question: Where in Oz can we get parts at reasonable prices?

I'm about to call my local dealer/workshop - just installing VIDA so I can get part numbers. But I'm expecting they'll be insanely priced. I want to get fluids for the Haldex and rear diff, as well as a bunch of filters, so I can start off ownership knowing its all been done :D

Import them from America in shipments of less than $1000 each. Prices over here are stupid. I looked at ordering Ixion 19" rims for my S40, Over $900 each over here, or $440 USD each, I could get four shipped from the US for the price of two over here. Madness!

Yes, I'm doing a 'Lazarus' with this thread. :)

Thanks to the Swedespeed admin(s) for recently cleaning out 3 pages of spam. Now we might hopefully see some more genuine Aussie traffic in here.

Many Aussies are also over on www.ozvolvo.org too.

Welcome. Being an international board, this site is excellent for finding technical information.

Socially, you'll find many OzVolvo-ites are also based in Melbourne.

Currently have a 2004 v70 2.5T which is doing the family car job.
Previously had a 2001 V70 2.4 NA, a 2001 XC70 2.4T and a 2001 v70 T5.

Happy to share any knowledge I may have.

Hi All

Just bought a 2015 Black V60 T5 FWD Drive-E with the Polestar optimisation. Picking it up next week.

Ill be interested to see what the optimisation does to the car but it might be hard to judge after the rather short test drive.

Looking forward to learning some more about these cars and seeing what they can do

Cheers
