Its nice to see that they are coming out with an intake, but I wonder what the price will be.

Those seats are insane... I wonder if they have side curtain airbags though?

Best I can tell, seats are not for USA due to loss of side airbags and somesuch. I'd really miss my red leather and heated buns too

I do needs me them brakes, the short shifter, the intake, the exhaust, the steering wheel, and the winning lottery ticket though.

Can't wait for prices so I can go cry.

Holy schniekies...same style intake for E46 on ebay for around $650. That's gonna leave a mark if it isn't less for the E92. Here's hoping demand brings that way down.

You are the type of guy I was trying to describe with my example of discussion with Volvo management. I'm not surprised you didn't understood what I was saying.
