My P1 was Mrs. Prolix's personal ride for a time. If you look at his thread "Temporary Transportation", you will see that PxAr made a few upgrades in the NVH department that have endeared the car to me. He also fixed most of the known problems, like sunroof drains, and he even installed a brand new windshield. A neighbor has the same car in Mazda guise, and it has none of the visual/tactile appeal that is so characteristic of Volvos. You could get a Mazda 3 and spend a week adding insulation everywhere, but you still wouldn't have a Volvo, nor AWD. MNIWT made the move to WRX for better AWD performance, but I'm way over the Boy Racer look and feel. ymmv,
Ps. Still in all, speed is so addictive; anyone got a 2.5" charge pipe for a P1?
