      those are some nice rides.
      I bought the 2013 almost a month after the 2015; it was a customer cancellation that I kind of stumbled on. I have no idea how long it sat at the factory, but it did come from there brand new with about 10 miles on it.

      Thanks for the comments everyone!

      Awesome ride(s)!!! Is your XC RD Ice White or Crystal White Pearl? Not to nitpick here, but Cosmic White is/was the best of the 3, I don't know why Volvo did away with it!

      Thanks! It is the Crystal White. I went back and forth with the Crystal and Ice, but I am really glad that I went with the metallic paint.

      Cosmic White was fantastic. However, Crystal White is more appealing to people (since Cosmic White had a bit of grey in it) and it is by far a color with more premium look. One is sporty, the other exudes luxury.

      Nice rides, the white looks great with R Design wheels. That would have been my second choice of color for sure.

      I registered the vehicles in NC this week since that is where I will be stationed next. Their tax was only 3% instead of 4% and I have a year to get the vehicles inspected. Getting the inspection stickers off of the inside of the windshield was a PITA.

      Thanks! Silver was actually my first choice, but my wife convinced me that we should go with white...and I am glad she did.

      I would love to attend one of those sometime. Unfortunately, I had to come back to Okinawa to finalize my move and won't be back to NC by then. I will keep up on tracking the FB page for future events, though...thanks!

      I registered and ordered one for each. I thought that at least the XC60 was going to have it already, but I was obviously mistaken.

      So this is the side of SwedeSpeed you're hiding in.

      Just wanted to pop in and say hi.
      Is your R the same color code as the XC60?

      It is my new hangout...
      Yes the color codes are the same on both vehicles so I can streamline my paint inventory now!

      Beautiful car! I just got a '13 RD in the same color combination. How to the '14 sport seats compare to the '13's?

      Thanks. I can't comment on the seats because I don't have a 2013 year to compare to.

      Are those the 20" rims from the XC60? They look smaller on the XC90.

      They look better on an XC60. :-(

      The Cratus wheels from the 2013 XC60 RD's will look really good on your XC90.

      Thanks for linking those Melvin.

      I just recommended those to a friend with a new XC70 as I think they'd look great on that car as well.

      Looks great.

      Love Sapphire black on the XC60. Makes all the lines come together even more nicely.

      We obviously love black (all 3 of our cars are now black) but I have a real soft spot for the Java Brown XC. My wife was dead against it, so it was a no go, and I suspect an unusual color could affect resale value, but that color really pops and shows off the line beautifully.
