That's a handsome car, but the cut down number plate spoils the look IMO
I think cut down plates look fantastic. Each to their own I suppose.
I like a cut down plate to a point, but that's been taken too far and it just looks odd IMO

This has been the perfect combination for me for nearly 6 years and I really struggle to think what to replace it with.

I thought all Volvos were 4 pot dag dags these days. Evidently not. What's that got? A turbo 5?

Some of these cars give me the horn, I love a fast estate.

Well they are the standard 20" Rims. With it having 6 pot 371mm brembos on the front You cant really use anything smaller.

Yeah I did have it mapped its doing 385hp Not as high as I hoped but apparently its quite a low reading dyno. But torque went up to 420lb/ft from 2850rpm right through to 4400rpm. So pulls like a train :-)

Fair enough. Just looks odd.

I thought that the gap in the arches looked a little odd. I do like that car though.

Cool car! Needs hitting with the lowering stick though; or would this negate the 4wd aspect? I think to get that arch gap down, and getting that rim size a little more balanced
