    The car looks good, but price is terrible. It was a loaded out C70 T5 with Inscription Package MSRP $50,075 dealer advertised price $47,550. I am debating between the C70 and G37 Convertible as a CPO in 1-2 (when i need a car) years mostly looking for a reliable car to drive till the wheels fall off. Then when it's paid off I should be making good amount of money I can have a nice condo and some exotic weekend car. While what ever car does the A-B with little operation cost.

    Not feeling the design for the S80, the only current Volvo I like is the V60.

    Winter car, I wouldn't like to commute in a DB9 in the Scandinavian winter.

    Volvos are terrible. if i had a daughter i'd give her one so she would be safe in a crash and also so that boys wouldn't want to date her

    Never! Still feels little strange from 997 to DB9, but i'm learning fast!

    Same on the 997. Did not drive that on winter that's why we have the GTS to run over all snow bro [​IMG]


    Lol, maybe it's the only way!

    A friends father growing up was a regional rep for audi so i was drinking the corporate koolaid as a teen. Couldn't hurt to have a little Quattro in the garage as a backup for those snow days.

    Well i'm thinking for some standard car aswell too work, because DB9 is one heavy drinker. I'm thinking of smart or what ever.

    How do the smarts stack up to the A1s, minis, Fiats? Are they minimal in power and really just commuting or do they have sporty/plush options?

    Ahh. Very nice DB9 Senior Escobar.

    Don't even bother with the Volvo. There are way better options out there for the price of the S80.

    I'm assuming you are talking about the the Mercedes Smart car, which is dreadful, the gearbox is like a retarded 5 year old and it goes like soggy bread.
