Hey all,

I wanted to introduce myself to the community. My name is Nick and I am 23 and live in Brooklyn, NY. I kept on hearing about Turbobricks so I figured it was time to join! I currently don't have a car in the city but plan to fix that in the near future. Growing up, I had both the first and second generation S60 and I absolutely loved it. I'm currently looking at getting a V50 R-Design, so I joined this site for advice anybody who is familiar with the model is willing to give.

Nice to meet you all!

The FWD/AWD hate is dying off here. Along with the cars. And the RWD diehards.

i've said it before but to John's point, the p80 and p2 vehicles are now the ones at the "turbobricks" price point for what we do.

I'll never be able to accept it. The state of car design is so bad that the idiots put all the engines in sideways nowadays. How did they forget which way is the front of the car?

Seems like plenty of us have whiteblock daily drivers to go along with redblock project cars these days, anyway. Such is the state of the mellower, older TB.

I'm also watching my old SAAB contacts showing up in Volvos one-by-one. It's a game of attrition!

Say, I've seen a couple of these threads since making an account. Should I have made one?

I guess I don't need one. I'm here to learn more about my brick, and try to help others keep theirs running.

Hey Nick - welcome to the family

Have fun, don't sweat the tongue-in-cheek good natured ribbing that goes on around here.

May not always be the best place for FWD info (a lot of the cats here are RWD guys - but plenty of us FWD folks around) but you are welcome and we are happy to have you.

Let us know if you need anything.
