Did a headlight restoration on my '06 V70. White compound, 400/600/2000 sandpaper, water spray bottle, carnuba wax, 3hrs., and a lot of elbow grease and they almost look new.

Yesterday I center the steering wheel on both the 19 Atlas and 08 C30 T6 while adjusting the Toe alignment.

Does that C30 have the 3.0T like the similar years S80 T6? The few C30s I looked at back then were T5s. For some reason the C30 reminded me of the Pacer. In a cool way! June

I'm one of those who can't get their left and right to East and West. I remember distinctly looking up what is a P2 and in forgetting again I think I drove the 30 into the wrong forum :oops:!

It doesn't really matter P1, P2, P100, or whatever to me. It's a Volvo and that's what matters most. I'm genuinely asking if a six cylinder was available? If so I want one!!! With a six speed preferred. I know a Polstar was available, but none ever came to my dealer and after hating my 850 I'm gun shy of ordering a sports model without driving it first.i prefer my fillings to stay in my teeth.
