guys, if u have a family with kids (like me), u would definitely go for
black interior, as kids love to eat, draw, and do whatever beyond your
imagination inside the car, and light colors definitely makes it more
difficult to maintain.

by the way, can anybody tell me why does XC90 T6 in BolehLand comes in 4
speed auto? for God's sake, a kenari is running on a 4 speed auto!!!

Not using the original michelins? You not using the original rims?? How
come so expensive for rubbers?

Eh, XC90 has a 4speed autobox?? Because here in HK even the 2.5t has a
5speed box.. the T6 and V8 even better with the 6speed boxes.


I actually like that light cream coloured seats like that on the V8 model
has here. It is also a soft leather material.. real nice.. but I've seen
cars with even better leather seats.. I am quite satisfied with the grey
seats in mine.. What I don't really like is the actual headrest itself..

I think is because of a cost issue.. if it is CBU then in order to keep the
car within price range they have to 'decontent' the car and sell a lesser
spec vehicle.

No wonder rubbers don't come cheap for you.. 20" wheels Shock
You are using a low profile tire on that as well??

Never thought about changing anything on mine, though today I sent it to
get the windows tinted.

Finally fueled it up today.. did 430km of mostly city driving with a few
highway runs.
Cost nearly HK$1000 to fill it up Shock
Waiting to do first service so can change the oil to run on synthetic.

Lucky most of it can claim back Big Smile Tongue

pokitiang: I only use my XC90 for long journeys and find it very
comfortable. Did KL to Phuket & back four times in the last 12 months.
In August drove from KL to HuaHin (just south of Bangkok) in one day.
1300kms in 13 hours including border/refuel and food/toilet stops.
Very comfortable, and didn't feel tired at all. Could have continued all
the way to Bangkok (about another 2 hours) but was only going to HuaHin.
Just turn up the music and those 12 speakers will make you think you are
at a concert;-)
