      What you are looking at is Dark Blue Clan cloth - as far as I know only available in 2013 and only through the Overseas Delivery Program. Not just that I believe OSD for 2013 was a shorter year...

      Ok, let's tackle this together:



      The base price for a C30 R-Design compared to a GTI or Focus ST was $2k-$3k more; maxed out in options they were very similar in price. Mazdaspeed 3 was at...

      Well this sucks :nono: Up until 2013 I admired the C30 from a far and probably would have never purchased one had Volvo not discontinued it. That said, I went into the purchase thinking that in the...

      OP: I was contacted by a Volvo dealer through direct mail a few months back. They offered me $10k for my 2013 C30 T5 Base w/ 6 Speed Manual and no options; At the time around 46,000 miles.

      What I...

      Final year 2013.

      So two things: After removing a bunch of debris from the top of the engine bay I haven't had a repeat for the flooding. However I did discover that there is likely small leaks...

      I would love to use the air conditioner but I have not. It has been unseasonably cool.

      It's not been leaking from the passenger side or from the rear driver side - just driver front footwell. ...

    8. How long are you going to own your C30?

      My 2013 C30 is almost 7 years old now.

      I'm not interested in selling but I've been keeping an eye on any V40 development and not liking what is trickling out. Everything from a raised SUV coupe...

      I don't think people are scared of the Chinese factory not meeting tight tolerances. I think they are afraid they will spec sub par materials and parts in order to put a few more bucks in their...

      Out of curiosity with Belgium getting hammered with XC40 orders and generally everyone moving to CUV's, is there a possibility the upcoming V40 will be order only ala V90; For the US market atleast?

      You are probably correct. But let's say all cars have this in a few years - I will do my research and buy the car that is the most easily hacked to permanently turn it off.

      I've been a first time Volvo (C30) owner for 6 years now and had recently written off this brand if they were going to "start-stop" everything. But if there is a slim chance that the V40 might get...

      I liked either pre or post updates.

      My biggest issue with the R-Design is the limited things you could do with the interior. Even through OSD you couldn't get Cranberry Leather nor the really...
    16. 2016 S60 questions (Inscription, 2.5L AWD, Start-Stop)

      I've got some questions I hope you can help me with.

      As far as I know the Inscription (S60L) 2.5L AWD trim was only available in 2016; 2017+ was 2.0 only.

      1. I seem to recall the 2.5L AWD...

      Most of the enthusiasts were aware that the Saturn Astra was a rebadged Opel. It didn't last long [I believe only one model year here in the US] as General Motors was declaring bankruptcy and...

      Keep in mind this was back around 2007-2009; though the specific timing eludes me now. But imagine going from $1.79/gallon to $4.25 in a span of a year. Yes it may be "cheaper" in the US but when...

      With the XC40 retailing for $34k+ is it safe to say the V40 will start over $30k as well?

      I don't mind the 2.4 being slower: I fell in love with the C30 because of the aesthetics. As long as its 0 to 60 is under 9 seconds I'm ok with that. Also, even though I've had ZERO problems with...

      There were many reasons why the C30 didn't sell well:
      - The C30 was born during the Great Recession.
      - Gas prices - at least in my area in Chicago - were a little over $4 a gallon for the first...

      My dealer who is rated #1 by DealerRater in my state also had a facelift but it's very blah. My wifes Mazda and inlaws Kia dealer puts it to shame.

      TL;DR: I'm jealous of that Lynk&Co showroom.
    25. Before the C30 experts move on, can they assist those staying for the long haul?

      I noticed that a few expert/enthusiast C30 owners have been putting their cars up for sale. Before they leave can they help create a list of things that can be taken care of with aggressive...

      I agree with pretty much everything you said but please realize the C30 was released at the worst time possible; the economy was collapsing so I doubt that helped ANY car released at the time.

      Not for about 15 years. My 2013 C30 is only 5 years old and by 240 standards is still an infant.

      It would be nice to have an alternative if something unfortunate should happen to it.

      I wish I could be one of those individuals that has never had a flat tire - because if I were I'd probably agree with you.
