...one more thing. As I have learned from this site, there is no comparison between a current V70 (based on a wagon version of the current S60) and your C70 which is based on the older S70 underpinnings from the 1990's which is based closely on the even older 850 platform from the early 90's. Obviously Volvo is learning from earlier platforms like our convertible's and applying better engineering to more current stuff like the S60/S80's and even more recent 2004 1/2 S40 which I have driven and like alot! I can't wait to see the retractable hardtop version of the S40 to see if it will be a worthy replacement to the C70.

going to be called a C70, not a S40.

Actually, I thought the jury was still out on that one. C70, C50, big, small, mini sized...no one seems to know for sure and Volvo corporate is very tight lipped about it all. They certainly aren't telling their dealers anything they can pass on to their consumers. I have taken to calling it "Volvo's next convertible" as that seems to be the only sure thing! I think I am right when I say it's based on the S40 platform right? No matter what they finally end up calling it, I'm still looking forward to seeing it and driving it. I visit this site alot so when something definite is known I will surely read about it here!

For the record.
It will be called C70.
It is based on the S40 chassis.
It is also at least 1 yr away.

Wow. Finally a photo that is not 'computer generated'. Looks like they had this one out on the road...or two since I notice the interior colors are different in the two photos. Makes me wish I could read Dutch. Nice treatment on the tail I think, I was wondering how they were going to work the S80-like taillights onto a roofless car. I think I like the back view better than the front. Thanks for the link.

I'm new to the forum and read you message. I have a 2005 V70 with memory seats and mirrors, but haven't figured out how to program the key fob. How do you do it?

I am afraid I cannot help here since I have the C70 convertible that does not have that cool key-fob feature like your V70. Your salesman should have included this info as part of your new owner delivery when you picked up your car. If it is not easily explained in your owner's manual, I would just give the salesman a quick call as he or she probably gets this question a lot. Good luck with the new Volvo.
