      Buy one in Canada. You'll probably even save a few more grand. They do the options/packages differently up here. vw.ca for info

      I'm picking up my PP with sunroof/cloth tonight!

      FYI, most if not all extended warranty contracts will not cover struts/shocks. They're considered wear items.

      Just bought a GTI with DCC today and one of my specific questions was about strut replacement. Coming from the Volvo world I was very wary of future cost of replacement - Volvo "4C" struts run in the...

      It's that time of year again.

      Packed & loaded my V70 to take my three kids and two of three dogs to our place in Windermere BC for the Canada Day Weekend. Wifey is on the West Coast with our other...

      Paddle shifters are a gimmick. We've had them for a couple years now, and the take rate is very low. The vast majority of Volvo buyers couldn't be bothered with them.

      The 2017 changes are looking pretty sweet. T6e AWD :thumbup::thumbup:

      I've seen one bad READ drive since the SI6 came out in 2007. That's a lot of SI6's.

      No, Alberta isn't "rust belt". We don't salt the roads either. Still a much harsher climate than WA though.

      Swedespeed clientele are a special breed. So much face palming when I read posts on there.

      My bad. I was looking at the steering wheel controls and thought I was seeing the buttons for adaptive. On closer inspection it's standard cruise.

      Flush is probably ~$300 range. Call your local dealer for a quote.

      I'm pretty sure that thing is fully loaded since it has Nav, adaptive cruise control, Dynaudio, etc.

      iPhone 6 should work...

      Differential Electronic Module. The Haldex control unit essentially.

      Drive trains are stout other than the pinion issue I mentioned above. It's rare though.

      Angle gears are great. Some sweaty...

      Not on a 2010. Never seen a problem.

      That reminds me though that we've seen a few bad pinion bearings in the rear differential. It's not serviceable through Volvo, they'll only sell you a $4000...

      We recommend transmission fluid every 50k. Volvo says lifetime. Use Volvo fluid only, and I recommend having the dealer do it as the procedure is a bit wonky.

      This has a timing chain, so no...

      Possibly a sway bar link rod. Could also be an upper strut mount. Front end noise isn't very common.

      :thumbup:

      Pre-2012 R-Designs also didn't come with the Polestar tune. Stock 281hp/295ft-lbs. Polestar tune will take it up to 311/354. Check with your local dealer for pricing. It goes on sale...
