      i was just admiring one of these yesterday at a stop light. i love the way these cars look, and the orange scheme works great for me.

      but the rest of the car doesn't. too bad.

      I wish more cars came with this color combination.

      I wouldn't buy this, though.

      I wouldn't do the orange leather. Orange stitching? Sure.

      Would I buy one? Nope.

      I'd consider it (or any C30) if they offered AWD as an available option. C30R, please?

      This is how Volvo is using social media?

      I have a better idea than a C30 in bright orange over orange--how about a C30 that's $4,000 cheaper.

      I'd consider it with the manual trans. I loved it when I took one for a spin two years ago.

      Or an R model that isn't just an appearance package.

      I'm all for improved color palettes, but that interior combo looks tacky. Give it a black interior with tan/white seats and you've got something.

      ^^^ Can't do that with orange paint. It'll look like a Creamsicle from the outside.
