      S60/V60 Sightings Thread - No Racing or Kill Posts Please

      ... hello to the fellow driving what looked to be a lowered rebel-blue R-design V60 with a SwedeSpeed sticker in the window on Lawyers Road. Very nice ride, and I think I saw you a number of months ago in a parking lot in Sterling.

      All RD's are lowered. It sounds like one of our moderators, Chris. If he has the 20" gray wheels on, they are filling in some of the fender gap giving you the illusion that it's lowered beyond stock RD.

      Yep -- that was me! Thought it might have been your car at first, but reconsidered when I saw the Ixions and had seen your car on the 20s in the "What did you do to your..." thread.

      Quite sure I saw you in Sterling over the summer in the parking lot near Spokes, Etc. -- I was just finishing a road ride on my bike, and that's often our start point (I lead outdoor rides for Lifetime Fitness). So if you remember seeing a guy in spandex admiring your car, that would have been me.

      Saw a sweet looking V60 RD in Rebel Blue yesterday heading southbound on Parkwood Blvd near Sam Rayburn Tollway in the Plano/Frisco, TX area. I must admit I'm a bit jealous!

      On Friday, the 19th of May, in western burbs of Chicago on 290 headed west, a red 2015-2016 V60 T6 R-Design. First one I have run across on the road. Had a dent in the front passenger fender and the passenger-side side skirt was hanging off a bit Anyone on here?

      Saw a nice facelifted black S60 T6 on South Blvd. in Charlotte on my way home from work. I couldn't tell if it had the sport chassis or had actually been lowered. It looked good. I let you pull out in front of me but you didn't seem to notice what I was driving.

      I see the same white T5 S60 (2014+) a few times a week getting off the same exit as me after work. It's tinted pretty dark. Nice and clean.

      I want to give a big thank you to the guy in the white face-lifted P3 S60 who pulled alongside me to give me a thumbs up on Independence Blvd in Charlotte, NC. It definitely made my morning. I'm not sure if you saw me return the gesture, but I made sure to downshift and speed ahead to give you a show of the Elevate exhaust and Polestar-tune acceleration.

      Just passed a pre-facelift S60 in Vibrant Copper (that's the color, right?) On I-90 East bound before Colbleskill exit this morning. Looks like it head upgraded Xenons and DRLs. I swear as soon as you get a new car you see that model everywhere lol.

      You could have kept it up, see if anyone else spotted it. They are very similar in size to a V60, the V40 is a lot thinner on the inside though. I was almost going to buy one but the interior waterfall felt a bit cheaper as did the rest of the car.

      Based on the Ford Focus platform as well, so they handle pretty well.

      For some reason, Volvo never felt the need to sell them here. Not sure why. I do like the look of the 'em.

      At a stoplight in Beaverton, caught a glint of Rebel Blue in my rear view today. Nice S60 with a sweet exhaust grumble as I turned the corner and it rumbled off straight. I was in a silver V60CC.
