      I know it's been ages since you posted this, but I put Michelin Pilot A/S 3 (yes, all-season) on my Subaru STi to replace the summer tires and they're incredible in spring/summer/fall. I have a...

      Seriously though, that's pretty incredible work. I've never seen a TMIC on a Volvo before.

      You MIGHT be able to add auto-door-lock with a DICE/VIDA programming option, or that may have only been on 2004-older S60s. There are other R owners on this forum who may be in your area and can help...

      Is there a Michelin Pilot Super Sport available to fit the R? The Subaru people have really jumped on it since it's shown up.

      Yes, the ride gets rougher and rougher because it can no longer properly control movement (there's no damping force left).

      Goddamnit guys!

      It still looks like fun though. 350 horsepower, better suspension, more rear torque, launch control, new aero, bigger brakes... too bad they couldn't get the weight down from 3700...

      I agree, at 6000 feet the car barely feels different. Driving the Kootenay Pass in BC in the R was awesome, basically left it in 6th with cruise on the entire way. Downshifted to 5th going uphill...

      What year is your R? The 5-speed auto in the early Rs is a dog in first and second gear. Engine output is electronically limited to protect the transmission.

      Yeah, I meant that it's the same as the AWD on the new Volvos, not what was equipped on the R. It's what you would get if you somehow bought yourself a new V60 (move to Europe? haha).
