It will be the new 2009 model :D 8) :D Sat-nav and all the bells and whistles you could ever need, the only thing I really wanted but did not spec was the leather interior.

Seems Volvos are the retrobiker car to drive... S70 CD 2.5T here (I prefer to let the first owner specify all the expensive extras, take the gigantic depreciation cost then sell it to me for a pittance ;-) )

Funnily enough, the leather interior was one thing I'd have preferred not have when I was looking for a car; my 850 has half-leather and I didn't fancy any more than that. Quite like it now though, with the heaters it's fine in the winter and not too hot in summer either. Only real downside is that anything that's not tied down ends up on the floor after about five minutes of driving on country roads :lol:
