Another pic to keep you all entertained while you wait for my own pics. Shamelessly stolen from the previously owner.

P.S shoutTony, time to update your PH garage...

ETA: When I say 'Shamelessly stolen from the previously owner', I'm talking about the photo, and not the car laugh

In other news the Volvo was treated to a new cam belt and water pump today, and given a check over and the green light by the mechanic and proprietor of my local trusted garage. £280 later I now have a little more peace of mind, but not looking forward to the VED bill later this month...

It's replacement isn't in the bag yet - I'll do some updating as soon as everything's sorted.

Played M4 MLM vigilante duties again tonight. Only 35mpg this time but traffic was quite bad in Hammersmith, and I was doing a couple of mph more on the motorway. Still, not bad for a car of the weight and power.

Also, I've concluded that the S60 has most capacious washer reservoir...in the world. Sorry if this is sounding a bit WhatCar mag but I must have put at least 5 litters in it, and it wasn't even empty to start with.

Haha! Yes my car is the same. Book says 4.5 litres nerd but it's definitely eaten more than 5l before.

I also noticed a definite change in how other road users treated me - either they see a dark S60 going exactly 70 and assume I'm BiB, or it's just that bigger cars get more respect. Perhaps someone could fill me in on this.
I have a purple C70 T5 and I think it is the large Volvo shape that other motorists associate with traffic police. I can watch others react, slow down and only when I'm alongside do they realise that I'm in a coupe and not going to nick them...

Video looks good! What did you use to film it? Good choice of car! I have recently become a big fan of Volos and having a focus ST currently, know how good the 5 cylinder engine sounds!

Thanks on both counts. Filmed with a GoPro HD and edited in FCPX

Nice video (though we could do with hearing more of that straight 5 lump).

It's also good to see fellow youngsters in decent cars rather than the obligatory Ford Fiesta et al.

I was looking at these a while ago but think I'm finally sold on the 9-3 Aero. The styling won me over as well as the fact that I've never owned a 6 speed car laugh

I regularly passenger in a silver '10 plate V70 and do find that the more observant road users always give us a second glance.

You look far too young to be driving that! Least I look older than my years, been pulled and asked if "Dad knows you've borrowed his motor" yet? hehe

Yes I'm sure the sight of a 19 year old in an S60 is quite an incongruous one, but not been pulled over yet. I did get someone cut me up on the way into a petrol station and then ask if I was enjoying daddy's car. Seeing he'd just stepped out of an Audi Q5, his jealous remark didn't warrant much in the way on of an eloquent response on my behalf, and I left him to get on with his anodyne, prosaic, diesel-fueled life. You go and enjoy the epitome of excitement in your life that is the 2.0 TDI, I'll keep the T5 thank you very much.

People are odd aren't they! As you say, leave them to it.

Great car history for your age though!
