crazy the bid has gotten that high on that thing. That wheel design looks great but does anyone else think they are a tad large for the body?

Yes. Personally I'd want a bit more sidewall on the tires (i.e. smaller rims, higher profile/aspect ratio). But that's just me. Still think it looks pretty killer overall ....

I agree; there’s not enough sheet metal for 19s. Looking back at my 2005 S4 with 19s, those wheels looked too big.

Bad airmatic struts, or self-leveling, I see it more on W220 S-Class around here more frequently than others.

Can also happen after sitting for a while. Start the car & it gets itself back in shape.

I agree, the wheels look great but IMO are a little too big. And looking at those tires all I think about is that I couldn't go 2 miles here without hitting a pothole and blowing one of those tires and damaging the wheel.. I see it has AZ plates so I'm sure you could get away with it there, but here, GOOD LUCK!

Speaking of Volvos, I do have to say, I do still have lust for my first love -- the V90 -- before I decided to go with the S5 because of the price difference and my worry on reliability...Still, I think the Volvo is gorgeous...

You guys see what ADV's rendition of the RS6 is like...?

Gave it a military flavor.

I for one actually really like that. Might like a battleship grey color better but don't hate that green either. Love the roof basket and they left some driveable ground clearance as well.

I'd probably go V60 over V90, just because I like the more compact car. Both are gorgeous.
E63S > RS6 for me. but wouldn't turn either down.

T8/Polestar?

Was behind a newer V60 this morning, may have been an XC, didn't get a good look, but it had the fender cladding & looked almost Outback tall.

Not sure on the T8 being US-available, but there were 20 S60 Polestars available in the US
