    Hello all,

    Just wondering the above as I cant for the life of me find a first gen s60 from 2008 or 2009 in this country!

    Thanks for any help.

    Absolute nadir of new car sales due to the recession, so there wouldn't be many to begin with.

    I think they were quiet high on the newer co2 motor tax system which would have made them a less attractive purchase at the time. I think they were something like 1200 to tax annually anything that was registered after 1st July 2008.

    :( so my only options really would be to import or settle for an S40 of the same generation?

    Thats unfortunate. We cant have nice things in this country without paying well for them! 😟

    Sorry for reviving the thread again, but any reason why there seems to be more s80s than s60s on the market? Or is it just a case of more s80s being sold back then?
