      Thanks for sharing. I've seen some X7s on the road and I really dig the large and in charge look. I can only imagine how beastly the M50i spec is.

      Depends on what's important to you.

      I personally have been getting CPO/used cars because I value more features and quality concerns and usable life issues can be mitigated.

      I'm no audiophile but I'm smitten by the B/Ws...it sounds too damn good and it got me to buy a couple of their headphones to listen while working.

      I paid $700 at an indy shop for 60K service, it was cheaper than the $900 at the dealer. But this is SF Bay Area where everything is expensive.

      I feel much the same way. There's definitely a mismatch between brand, car and ownership experience. Volvo was in turmoil for nearly a decade prior the SPA cars coming out and they're trying to...

      Given that traffic isn't much of an issue now, I might cross-shop service between my indy shop and McKevitt or Palo Alto. Can advisor recommendations?

      In 2020, I personally would not recommend a new XC90 but would say a CPO MY18 or lower is great value. In 2017 when I got my XC90, it was amazing, there was almost nothing like it for the price and...
