Volvo V50 v. Alfa 159 wagon

I've put on around 8,000 miles in the six months that I've owned the V50. I have really enjoyed it. It's quick, utilitarian, and solid. And I got such a good deal on it, I think I can put on another 20,000 miles and still break even if I were to sell it.

I only have a few quibbles. For some reason, there is a slight brake dust build-up on the rear wheels but none up front. I also wish my car had iPhone/iPod integration and Bluetooth. Ed (US) once posted a DIY solution, but it looks daunting, considering it took me over an hour just to replace a headlamp bulb.
