I honestly haven't been this excited about a car since the V50. I have definitely found my soul mate in a machine. A truly gorgeous (near flawless design) car.
I thought the V50 had me sold, but Audi has done it. A 2.0T producing 200hp (easily chipped), Quattro, a 6-spd manual in a tighter package than the V50 at the same price. Better interior than Volvo too.
I'm sorry to leave you Volvo, but in a year or so, this car will be mine (I'll take Nogaro Blue).
