Re: Non-Volvo car chat megathread

240Z is the car to get. Those are bonkers great.

And to be clear, THIS 280Z above will not be worth much without tons of work and money. But it's a still a great car. It has side pipes(!).

Re: 2015+ XC90 Catalytic Converter Theft

I don't have any experience with SPA. But muffler shops I bet are doing a handful of these every day. Around here they're getting stolen all the time off of every type of SUV and tall crossover.
