Hello & Welcome. They look nice, especially the 850 T5 estate. Is that a manual or an auto?
I also run a Volvo, an S60 T5, it's currently waiting to in go for some major surgery on Monday, it requires a new clutch slave cylinder & clutch assembly etc.
Fine cars though, especially the T5's.
keep posting your pictures & stories etc.
They are both Autos, whilst i have owned several manuals over the years, i always opt for an Auto. Back/disc injuries/problems means its so much easier to drive autos for me now.
Yes, Volvos are great...but when it goes "tits up", they tend to be expensive to fix. My arguement/offset for this situation was, that they dont go wrong that often, an they/their parts outlast many non Volvo, mainstream cars.
Your S60 T5 sounds very nice, i hope you get it sorted, with not too much expense to you. I dont have any experience with Volvos younger than the year 2000...I have always owned pre 2000 cars myself.
I have many Volvo stories, thats for sure.
Here is a lovely V70 (P1) 2.5 10 valve wagon. I bought this in Essex several years ago, because it had stupidly low mileage (65 000 miles). It was that lovely "pink" in places, but i soon sorted that!!!
I like to do things the hard way!...so i T-cut an polished the whole car by hand!!! that took me 2 Saturdays (16 man hours). It did come out real nice though.
Some pics. Its sporting 16" C70 Alloys here.
I pulled over the side of the road here, to take a pic of the mileage!!! i couldnt miss this one.
You gotta love all the 6's.
