That is crazy! Those brakes are amazingly...uh...large. The C30 is a car I keep forgetting about. I wonder how long Volvo is going to produce it for?

After 2010 Volvo will be terminating the C30 from its lineup. Mostly for it's low demands in the market. Out performed by both Mazda 3speed and Honda Civic SI. Plus its SUV'ish gas mileage with a hefty price tag all contributing to the eventual distinction of the C30 after 2010.

Volvo had the right idea with the car, but it was poorly executed. It was far too expensive, so much more could have been done to the motor, and they should have made the R-design/V2 only...otherwise it looked like poo. If you like the Evolve C30, check out the Evolve S40...it looks German and badass.

I about threw up at the first post! I LOVE Volvos, but theres such thing as going to far with a car. 19x14 rims crosses the line, lol. My opinion.

I've seen the S40 photos before ... man that's nice too ...
I think they should have left the engine and design (taken from the Euro Spec Focus ST) and left it for Ford US to work with. It would have sold better I think as a focus. Because the focus name is more widely known.
But Volvo dropping the C30 in the lineup ... finally ... I can probably get one for dirt cheap soon. ... it would make a fairly good Daily driver,
