Thanks guys, the S60 is a really great car and the 5 cylinder diesel is undoubtedly more characterful than the 4 pot in the S80. So I will miss her a bit :)

However, I did a 6 hour drive in the...

Considering Wowo's Crystal Sealant - anything else worth a look?

Just got a white Volvo, and my mate's got a light blue metallic one that I'll also be looking after, as my Collinite is running out it's time to look into a new product...

Priority is relative...
