    Welcome! I've learned so much about my '04 (Petrol) XC70 on this forum- especially from member JRL. Though, it helps to temper his posts by reading them in a pirate's voice!

    I've had mine for about a year, and they're great. No signs of wear whatsoever. I will say one thing, though: they're slippery devils. You really have to crank the clamps down HARD. I've blown my...
