      2015 Volvo V60 T6 R-Design
      03-30-2020 07:11 AM #2101
      Sold my A4 Avant in January, came close to getting an Allroad, but the whole Allroad ride height and wanting to lower it, which then would mean wanting new wheels etc. put me off enough that I ended up with this:



      2015 V60 T6 R-design with the Polestar optimization. Love it. Stock other than an upper IPD torque mount and some wheel spacers, eventually I'd like to lower it about half an inch and maybe look for some of the 19" version of the current wheels on it. Tempted to track down a set of Euro headlights to get rid of the amber, but, while the headlights are not crazy expensive, I am sure the 2nd hand market for Volvo V60 headlights is small so selling my stock ones to offset the cost of the Euro ones might put that on the back burner.

      Always loved those.

      I really wanted a Polestar version, but alas it is not in my budget. The only thing I'm not a fan of in these cars is the center console.

      2018 GSW 4motion 6spd manual. I love this car. I've done quite a bit to it, TTRS front brakes, GTI seats, climatronic swap, etc.... Slowly making my way to a Golf R variant clone. The exhaust tips will be replaced with OEM RS3 tips sooner than later.

      I posted in the COVID-19 thread but thought i belongs here too. Ten years after buying a loaded black manual Mazda 6 wagon I bought a loaded black manual BMW wagon. It's a 2011 and is quite possibly the only one of its kind in Canada. Partway through the 2011 model year BMW Canada introduced an "Executive Edition" 328i that bundled the most popular options together. It's standard operating procedure for BMW Canada for a model at the end of its run to do that and most 2011 and all 2012 E91s are this package. You could still get it with a manual but not the sport package or a few other options. So mine is an early 2011 with all five option packages (sport, premium, executive, nav, premium audio).

      It's a one owner car that was custom ordered and seems to have been meticulously maintained. Sits on staggered 18" BBS RGRs and the stock 17s have new winter tires on them. Only thing it needs is a new set of summer tires. Had a PPI done and the car had an oil leak which the owner got fixed. Comes with all maintenance records and has 175k km on it (about 110k miles).

      I don't actually have the car yet. It was in the Ottawa area and normally I'd have no issue with flying there and driving it home but due to COVID I would have to self isolate for 14 days when I got home and I didn't want to do that, so I'm having it shipped. It was dropped off at the shipping terminal Friday afternoon and I'm not sure when it will get here. I had someone in the area test drive it for me and he said if I didn't buy it he would be tempted to (and this guy already has a brand new manual Golf 4motion wagon).

      Nice! I’ve had three E91s, they’re excellent cars. One of them was a manual xDrive 6mt like yours, but it wasn’t a sport package car like yours.

      Make sure you change the transfer case fluid, you’re about due for the second change (due every 60k miles).

      Any suspension plans? The current shocks are probably done by now, and the thrust arm bushings are probably finished too if they haven’t been changed already.

      Also, you can swap the three stage intake manifold onto the N52 in your car and get something like 40hp after the tune, they artificially limited the 328i for reasons unknown.

      No suspension plans yet, I'll have to see what exactly the owner did or didn't do. I suspect if anything was worn out and was affecting the ride or handling he probably already fixed it.

      I do think it would look great with a slight drop and maybe some wheel spacers.

      Incidentally, replacing the outer tail lights with European ones will give your car amber rear turn signals. They are plug-and-play.

      Replacing the headlight switch with the correct European version will enable the rear fog lights. It is also plug-and-play.

      I've always had a soft spot for Passat wagons and that one looks really nice.

      Back in the '90s my dad was shopping for a replacement for our POS Caravan and the local Ford dealer had a '91 five-speed Passat wagon that we checked out. He really liked it but the A/C was broken and he ended up buying a Taurus wagon that was three years newer at 2/3 the price.

      Wow really nice looking.. I have a similar plan once my wagon is relieved of daily status.

      On another note did you used to have a Matchstick (I think) MK4 GTI?

      Thanks man. The only mk4 I’ve had was a Canyon Red Jetta on color matched BBSS RF. I had that car for 15 years, among others.

      Ah ok. I remember driving by a house between Worcester and Gardner area when I lived in Worcester back in 2009/2010. Can't remember if it was on 140 or what but there was almost always a clean VW parked in the driveway. Must be thinking of something else or not remembering the right car...
