Outstanding. Welcome to the R club.

My wife is finding the most relaxed setting on the adjustable suspension is not soft enough over the rough roads here (is there any region in North America that has good roads any more?). I told her new tires (coming in 2 months or less) will somewhat mitigate the rough ride, but "don't expect miracles".

All the treatment I've given the V70 has REALLY woken up the engine. Night and day compared to my test drives. It was no faster than my 850 T5 in those test drives, but I knew a dragon lay sleeping under the hood. Just needed a little tune.
Help keep MVS on the web -> click sponsors' links here on MVS when you buy from them.
Also -> Amazon link
