why cant we have ?

There was a time many moons ago when wecould have a really good dig at each other and discuss likes and dislikes etc. Now we are in most cases forced to use social media Twitter FB etc to discuss something which personally I dont have either of and have no intention of starting either. (privacy I take very seriously). BUT, whi cant I read others and my own blog on the quote without sending another message?

Green or Brown?

It will be interesting to see what Co2 figure Volvo will be able to achieve with their efficient new D4 engine when combined with AWD and Geartronic?
It could make an appealing combination for those wanting 4WD but put off of an SUV by high Co2 and the subsequent BIK penalties.
I also think it would look a lot better in alternative colours to White or Brown!

Was about to saY

i wasabout to say how Chinese this barge looks side on, and then I remembered it IS Chinese now. In Russia we receive a bucketload of Chinese models you never see or even hear of in mainland Europe (or USA come to that). Lifan company is the biggest copy cat designer of them all. Oh well sorry Volvo - I never had one - and I doubt I ever will
