    It needs de-barrying a little and the ecu sending off to noobtune but it's a solid old bus and it's a colour I've never seen before.

    My latest purchase has had this done, they also managed to paint the wheels red in places too, I'm not driving it until I've repainted them as I don't want to look like a chavvy bellend

    Jazoli reacted to Shirley Knott in Volvo V70 Phase 3 (2007-2016) What do we think?   
    It's lovely that you've taken the time to share your insight here, but given the modern subforum caters to "Vehicles under about 10 years old" and Phase 3 V70's started production in 2007, your point is nul and void.
    Do you have anything useful to say?
    That was pretty much my understanding too, although I had read that the Phase 2 cars were to all intents and purposes designed by Volvo with very little Ford involvement?
    As you say, the Phase 3 cars are based on the Mondeo platform and use a large number of Ford parts. I wouldn't like to speculate whether that's for the better or worse, I've never driven one, much less owned one.

    Loads wind me up, leapers on modern Jags, Chrome initials on the front wings or boot, chrome arch trims etc.
    Its not just giffer mods that get my goat, there's the odd car on here that are stereotypical barry wagons, I'm sure the owners of the cars are lovely people but the cars are generic family wagons and look like a complete dogs dinner with headlight eyebrows, manufacturer sun strips, questionable vents, too many badges on every panel etc, its almost forgivable if the owners were 17 years old but they aint  They definitely qualify for the thread title.

    The thing is, APR is APR. If you finance a £10,000 car on 4.9% APR it's not suddenly going to have a REAL cost because the balloon payment is due, it always had a real cost.
    And on the flipside, yes, if you think that a £38,000 Mercedes C-Class is £299/month for three years and that's the price and somehow the PCP is ripping you off, then you really need to go back to school for a while. If you finance a car on 0% you've still got to pay for the damn thing?
    And most excess mileage charges are between 4.9ppm and 15ppm unless you've signed a really vicious deal.
    Every PCP deal I have been involved with the car has been worth more than the final value fee. Even a Citroen C3.
    IME if you can spend less than £3Kpa on a car, excluding fuel, including tax and maintenance, then you're doing okay. £2K per year is a more sensible level if you can do it, but that's surprisingly limiting.
    By all means, avoid finance if you want to and can do so, but be realistic. A Golf with some fancy bits is £35,000 these days. Want a nice Skoda Scala? Up to £29K. That white amorphous blob of a CLA Shooting Brake I've been testing  is £38,000 list price. Even at 0% APR that would take 100 months at £380/month to pay off.  I am sure this will spark a rant about the number of people driving fancy cars they haven't earned or don't deserve, but fundamentally new cars are a thing you subscribe to, lease, treat as a monthly payment; they're not a status symbol or an asset, they're a device.
    People spend more to get fancy ones, but you could lease an Audi A3 e-Tron for £237/month inc. VAT and the value of a 12 year old Focus - there are always deals like that. The real cost is of course the number of cars that get thrown away rather than maintained - the lack of servicing, the state of these not at 3 years old, but at 7 to 12 years old; how many 56-plate cars do you see that still look great? Manufacturers have to encourage them off the road to stay in business...
    The Dacia is unusually good for a car you could realistically buy with savings though - I am looking forward to talking about it properly elsewhere
