Thoughts on the '04 S40?

I kinda like it.

Available 5 cyl. 218hp engine, not too shabby for a Volvo.

All it needs is a set of horns and it will look like a bull...hehe. Sorry, but that's what the front of it reminds me of.

I think it looks sporty.

I like it. Looks better than the current one, which is kinda plain vanilla. I applied for a job at a local Volvo dealer, maybe I'll get to check them out up close.

I really like what they've done w/ the styling. And it's a Volvo, so you're practically invincible -- the UK guys will understand the humor there.
