      Hello everyone, name is Cam. Simply introducing myself before I start posting as a complete rando.

      Iíll keep it short. I just purchased an XC90, and it is my first Volvo. I am a German car nut (I wonít bother anyone with that unless they want to get into it). But, this being said, I have always ADORED the XC90, among many other Volvo models. I have loved the styling since the first time 12 year old me saw one in 2003, and I still love the look today. These cars have stood the test of time, and you still see tons of them on the road today. To me, this says quite a lot about car. So when the time came to pick up something more ideal for New England winters, I knew exactly what I wanted.

      Anyway, here are some pictures I took after picking it up this afternoon. 2013 80k, Electric Silver, and I believe that itís a Platinum Plus, but Iím sure you all can help me out on that.

      Also, is anyone aware how long it normally takes for a Moderator to accept your account on this forum? I created mine on Friday, and it looks like itís still under review.

      Welcome to the forum and Congratulations!That's a nice XC90! There are a lot of good tips in the Sticky's that are worth reading. If you do your own work, I highly recommend getting VIDA. Besides the communication capabilities with a DICE unit, the genuine Volvo service instructions are embedded in the program. It's surprising how easy things can be if the Volvo step-by-step is available. VIDA topic is at:

      Looks like you found a really clean example. My wife drive a 2013 R Design in the same color which just turned 50k miles. Looks like you have the black/charcoal interior. Welcome to the forum. Lots of good info and owners around here to pick at.

      Thank you! And yes, black charcoal with white piping and stitching. This one was very well kept as far as cleanliness goes, so Iím hoping i donít run into any mechanical surprises.

      Welcome to the tribe. Feel free to ask questions. Use the search engine first though.
      Follow-up questions are fine.
      Many helpful types here with very little ego.

      Thanks so much! Yeah, I was stoked to have gotten into this one. The interior is in just as great condition as what can be seen in the pictures. Previous owner took great care of it.
