Good morning, folks. I've been a Volvo owner since 1997 and a Swedespeed contributor since 2003, but because a new V90 just found a home in my garage, I had to relocate my forum presence.
V90 Inscription, Mussel Blue w/amber interior. Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous! Why America doesn't love these cars is beyond me.
Pretty impressed with what they've been able to do with that little 4-banger, but I've never warmed up to the thrum of a four-cylinder. They should pipe in the lovelier sounds of an inline 6 or V8 through that excellent sound system. It would be Fake News, I know, but I for one would be happier.
I noticed a huge improvement in the refinement of the stop/start system compared to my previous V60. So much smoother and less obtrusive. I'd like to know how they accomplished it.
Looking forward to contributing.
