I got a Volvo V60 PE. It’s essentially the hybrid T8 with tuning, big brembos, ohlins shocks, some fascia changes, and yellow seat belts. It’s 9 inches shorter than the E series wagon, so probably closer to a 3 series wagon in terms of size. It’s not as fast as an E63 or RS6, but 0-60 in 4.3-4.4 and 33 combined MPG is fine for now.
I looked at the V60. The size is right but it’s only offered in FWD if I’m not mistaken. Has that been an issue?

The perception here is that the Audi A6 wagon, BMW 5 wagon, Merc E wagon and Volvo v90 wagon are in the same league size wise. Same with the A4, 3 series, merc C series and V60.

although the V60 can be seen as sitting in between the two as its slightly larger then some I believe.

I thought V90 is in between 5 and 7 (at least S90 definitely is, as it comes in long wheel base only in the US, so definitely larger than 5 and E).

Not sure about V60

Albon crash in practice at the Bahrain GP.

This is why you always get track day insurance.
And then Grosjean with the most horrific fiery crash I’ve ever witnessed. Happy and impressed that he escaped serious injury despite being trapped in a burning wreck. At the same time, what the fuck was he doing when he caused the crash??

Mclaren P4 and P5 and no points for Rscing Point means they’re in decent shape for 3rd in Constructors

I think it’s unanimously agreed upon that the Sport Turismo is an exceptionally good looking vehicle. Saw my first RS6 yesterday and in my opinion didn’t even hold a candle to the ST in the looks department.

RS6 in my opinion too aggro for a wagon.

well, people park Escalade in manhattan garage too, so I suppose no sedan/wagon is ever going to be "too big".

E34 and E39 wagons >> anything after them. For smaller cars, the E30, E36, and E46 were great, and the E90's not bad. The peer MB wagons of that era especially the E classes were great too: the W124 looked amazing.
