I picked my xc60, 05/19/12 and it's one heck of a car. A true beast. Stomp on it and it responds. I had a 10 xc60 with 281hp, it was alright, but this is driving an entirely different vehicle. I absolutely love the way this car rides.
The pop of the motor. My R-Design gets up to 80-90 without a break or hesitation. Makes me look for Q5, Range, Infiniti, Lexus to eat for lunch.
Lower the R-Design, keep it stiff, but bring it down. That's the only knock, appears to ride high.
