      I had powerstop drilled/slotted rotors and Z16 pads front and rear on my Volvo V50. Quite and not too much dust, stopped the car equal to OE. Great value but not performance in any way.

      I believe from prior posts that the TDI has torsion beam rear suspension vs. the TSI's independent. Someone will have to fact check though.

      Love the choice of wheels. I had my mind made up to pick up a set of those, but a brand new set of BBS CO with tires fell into my lap. I still want those wheels in silver or titanium.

      I won't expect the dealer to catch the headlight bulb issue, but they should have caught the suspension/end link/axle problems. Are you sure all those were issues? usually its either endlinks -OR-...

      It never a good thing to have a bad experience esp. when you are in a "foreign" environment. Perhaps taking something from this - if the car is 2/3 the price, there is a reason and never buy a car...

      Be very careful when washing the paint - basically stop towel drying. You will need a "real" random orbit buffer (like a porter cable) and a light compound (menzerna FF 3000). The key is to use a...
