Quote from: Denis on 24 January 2006, 07:40 AMHey hokmanA Volvo 240 turbo can produce real power when the engine passes 2700 rpm. Volvo has those alloys fitted with 195/70 x15 Michelin, Pirellis or equivalents for a GOOD reason : it keeps the car doing well at all times. Beware of lesser tires !The Volvo 240 turbo has a great steering (better feel than a Mercedes) but that rigid axle is what got me back into a Mercedes !It is not entirely bad as it can be made to do much better with a good set of autocross Bilsteins. Yes, I know, all this costs but that is the only way to get good performance out of the old swede. OTOH, I once bought a 220D (W123) that was utterly scary to drive : poor braking, steering, roadholding !!! the cause : cheap tyres !DenisParis, France
