    Thread: First Volvo

      First Volvo

      Well the wife and I finally took the plunge and traded in the C-Class and my Camaro SS convertible for a V90 CC. So far I'm insanely impressed and super excited. Someone told me heaven is owning a Swedish Staton Wagon and it's probably fairly accurate. Can't wait to take it on the 2300ish mile road trip to Seattle this summer.

      Welcome to the Forum! Congratulations on your first Volvo. I see two holes drilled on to the front bumper. Do you live in a state where you need the front plates? If not, either use plugs or do what I've done. Put up a Swedish flag plate up front!

      It looks like it has one big goofy grin across its face. It must be just as happy for you to own it!

      Congrats!

      You're right, there is something special about owning a Volvo.. station wagon in particular.

      Enjoy!

      Congratulations from Seattle, and welcome to the funny farm!

      First purchase was a pair of bars for the roof and second was bumper plugs. I live in TX currently but like to live dangerously without a front plate lol.

      Congrats on the car. If you want to use the front plate without mounting it to the bumper, you can always go with some like this

      I had planned on doing this before I found out my dealer had already mounted the bracket for mine.

      Congrats and welcome! The V90 CC is the perfect road-tripper. I could drive it all day without a complaint. My wife drives it for business up and down the Northeast, and loves it.

      Nothing like seeing a New Car finding a Happy Home. All she's missing is a bow on top and a puppy to make the awe factor go off the charts.
