    Hi!

    I am new to Volvo and this forum. Found it at altavista.com.

    After a few years with Audi and forums like Audiworld.com, Nordicaudi.com and Audizine.com I am now to try Volvo.

    My car will be delivered in feb/mar this year.

    This is the spec.

    XC70 2,5T
    Automatic Gear

    Silver Exterior
    Graphite Leather Interior

    HU-603 Audio System with AMP
    Subwoofer
    Bi-Xenon
    DSTC-system
    Rain Sensor
    Rear Skid Plate
    Rubber Floor Mats

    Do you know if there are any replicas on the 17" Sentinal wheels?

    Sorry, no pics yet!

    Welcome aboard. Like yourself, I am relatively new to the site. You will find the folks open and courteous with lots of helpful hints should you have a motoring problem.

    We are still in the planning stages for our next car, but hopefully it will be the '05 model version of your XC (released in Canada around June).

    Enjoy and fell free to participate. The webmaster is in BC Canada, but the mix of participants is truly world wide.

    Welcome!! Drove through Stockholm after picking up my '04 back in May....terrific city. Went to the "J" club near Sony / Ericson office complex, outside Stockholm.....very nice, right on the water. Enjoy the vehicle....sounds nice

    Welcome Silent and Congrats on a great choice!

    I'm currently not aware of any wheel replicas, however, there are a number of wheel refinishers that offer O.E.M. alloys at substantial savings over new factory wheels. Probably doesn't help you out a great deal considering your location, but thought I'd toss the link in anyways.

    FYI, the Sentinals are listed in the 80 series category.
    Look forward to seeing pics of yer new ride!

    silent: YOU'RE WELCOMED.

    Your listed options for the XC70 are excellent choices. If you intend to do any serious off-roading might I suggest the addition of the 4 mm thick aluminium engine protection plate. It replaces the plastic stock one and if anything else will last the life of the car as plastic tends to become brittle with age, deforms and can drop off at any time. I'm on my 3rd one with my 1986 745 GLE. When the plastic engine grate drops off it gives you one hell of a scare.

    Nice colour/color combo choice as well.

    Thank you all for the welcome&#33;

    The 4 mm thick aluminium engine protection plate? Is it the same as front skidplate?

    In Sweden the front skidplate is standard.
