    No rs6 tonight, but maybe tomorrow. Looks like this one is overdue for the 35k service. Anyone have an aftermarket warranty/service contract they like?

    Edit: Oddly enough, it looks like no one wants to offer a service contract on a 15yo rs6... After watching a couple of 4.2 teardown videos, I feel the same! With my luck, I'd write the check and the torque converter would detonate in the first 10 miles and the drc would bottom out while while I was pulling over. Going to pass on this one. If anyone is interested in a very fast, poorly documented RS6 in CO, I'd be happy to introduce you to the seller.

The little C30 checks a lot of boxes for me.

    Reading old reviews, seems that people mostly dinged them for basically not being an STI, VW R, or other racey hatch. Those reviews really seemed to come off to me as unfair comparisons. Kind of apples to oranges. Seems that if I take it for what it's strengths are...doing some of the things Volvo does best that is, I might be pretty satisfied.

    Crazy how well you fared in that collision! Gotta love Volvo! Definitely one of their strongsuits. Good quality to have when it comes to running around in a compact car in an urban landscape increasingly dominated by SUVs. Absolutely baffles me as to why so people here in the big city want to drive a large SUV. This place is just teeming with Tahoes and such. Screw that. I'm ditching mine as soon as I can. Was truly perfect for rural Montana, but it's going to be teh suck (and pointless) in the urban jungle.
    If you want any more details just ask. Yeah anybody comparing it to a car aimed at being a hot hatch is heading in the wrong direction. FWIW it also surprised me how well it did in the snow when I put some Dunlop Wintersports on it. It got in and out of ski area parking lots that a lot of other cars couldn't and with those rear buckets I could get 3 or 4 pairs of skis and 3 or 4 people in it because the skis could go up the center. I used it as a commuter in and out of NYC for 3 years (56 miles each way) and had just as much fun with it on the open road as in tight urban traffic and got ~30mpg most of the time. It was also the easiest car to parallel park ever with that deep drop rear window. If you get one I still have the Thule roof rack fit kit that is specific to the car if you need it.

    What did you pay for your Golf R? Thinking of selling my fiesta ST and getting something with AWD.

    I lucked out... They'd been sold out in NA for months, but I found one in KS City that ended up at a BMW dealer after 500 miles. Paid $34k.

    I might be up for selling mine. Let me know if you'd be interested. 38k, ~330hp, winter tires and wheels, thule rack. It's a sweet car... I was blasting by half the state of TX on I-40 today thinking how fucking dumb I am for even considering selling it. Still haven't found something I'd prefer.

    Cool, I appreciate it. Realistically won't be looking at trading in until summer, but if your R is still around then we should talk. I loved the Fiesta living in KY, with better roads, but living in Boston area now it's a bit miserable driving around in. Largely been parked for the last 9 months.

    Austin - I should have bought a C30 or V50 a long while back, but I didn't because under long-term MPA orders I didn't have the stability to do so and some hits came my way which depleted the savings I was making (a genius asshole Squadron CC had given away our activation, thought he'd make rank by offering to the AF to cancel our activation to save them money by doing mass MPAs instead, and predictably that was used against us while also giving no dependable structure). Anyway once I was up and running in my current career (took awhile), when I finally had the wherewithal to upgrade from my 240 wagon, the S60 was available and Volvo released a bunch of corporate car T6 R-Ds to dealers to sell used, so I jumped into that instead.

    So, unfortunately I was a bit biased when I was finally able to test drive the C30 (It kind of was between the Polestar edition and my S60 I ended up with, very clearly apples and oranges, but the 60 was kind of my dream car at the time. Happy with what I've had, just wish I'd had the 30 too). Anyway, I thought the C30's styling was kind of dumpy for awhile, needed a bit of a refresh, resembled an Audi TT for me for a long time. Finally at the last year or two they updated it. Inside it had that Volvo trademark waterfall dash console, but it was a generation previous to the S60 I'd gotten used to so monochromatic green displays vs the giant color display, just felt dated and maybe a bit cramped. Still respectable scoot and handling although since it was a test drive and I didn't buy my 60 from this particular dealer the saleman in the test drive with me was a bit of a dick, so no chance to push it to get a feel for the handling.

    Really wish Volvo had kept that whole C30/S40/V50 line alive in the US, they need a lower-end and lower-priced product to offer on par with the 240 of days old. They went through a weird SUV phase where the only wagon you could get was the XC70, and just now have restarted the lower end with the XC30. The S60 is great, but they get stoopid expensive fast, mine as equipped would have been over 49k at retail and since it wasn't the base S60 there's little ability to make a deal, dealers aren't swimming in R-d stock to get rid of.

    The forthcoming V60 is a good looking car. Do not dig the likely drivetrain options.

    Probably trading in my beauty this weekend. Going back to a truck. Sucks. Love this car. SLC mags keep an eye out.
