These V50's are expensive second hand for a reason. They do no depreciate as much as other cars do. Good reseller value too.

Sometimes you can find them with all options or multiple lines. No bad deal. And comparing that with a Polo.. come on :lol:
On the other hand, Polo is cheap in parts and maintenance.

But Volvo has the seats... :mrgreen:
If you grab one, make sure it is a turbo version.

The Dodge Hellcat is plenty for normal road use.
But it still is kinda cool that they build these insane cars like the Dodge Demon. :twisted:

Every Mustang should come with this, then maybe less Mustangs would make burnout fails leaving car meets and not drive into people.

But no, the Dodge Demon should not be road legal, it is track car made for thing, going on the dragstrip.

This is just sick, why people would clean up old used tires and sell them as new, and then put them at risk as of a massive tire blowout.

Same thing with those idiot truck tires who has a wear belt on the outside of the tire and then on the highways they just blow and sent rubber bits flying.

So always buy quality rubber even though it hurts the wallet big time.

Tires with a renewed surface are very common in certain parts of the world. It can be dangerous for high performance cars. But for slow driving cars it can be done. I would never buy them. As used tires are done for a reason.

I moved it here, as it is no petrolheads material. 8-)

Which car colors do you think is the best, mind colors you can actually get on highend dailies?

For me i'm stuck between Audi's SepangBlue, the darker version of Nardo grey, i think those are my favorite colors for cars at the moment.
