Volvo S60 2.0T SE - The Moog's £30 Ovlov *collection underway O_o*

Recommended Posts

THE FINAL FINAL* UPDATE 19th July 2018

 

Literally nothing from any of the five or six places it's currently up at. I may as well be selling the bubonic plague.

  • £Insult me
  • £8.50 per ticket?

BULLET POINTZ:

  • 2005 ('55) Volvo S60 2.0T SE
  • 5spd manual 'box
  • Owned since November 2015
  • 121000 miles
  • MOT June 2019
  • Full service history (stamps and invoices) - no need for another for 10k
  • Cambelt sorted
  • Since November 2015: new front brake flexi hose, new off-side CV joint, two new front tyres, near-side rear brake calipers and brake pads, front wheel bearing and anti-roll bar linkage
  • Strong engine with five cylinder warble
  • Bodywork and interior both superb
  • Working cruise control
  • Can do 40mpg
  • Has tow-bar
  • Slight flywheel rattle - no clutch slippage or imminent failure likely
  • Air con cold but noisy compressor - best not to use it unless you like a possible auxiliary belt roulette
  • A couple of advisories on MOT
  • Alloy wheels (particularly fronts) would benefit from being refurbished

Last night I was just looking at these! A grey facelifted, manual S60,is it black leather? With a fully working daily driver I'm not sure what box this would tick other than the sound and a nice thing to look at.

Last night I was just looking at these! A grey facelifted, manual S60,is it black leather? With a fully working daily driver I'm not sure what box this would tick other than the sound and a nice thing to look at.

 

It is black leather; I personally find (as a lanky streak) that Volvo seats are about the most comfortable around. I will admit, however, that during a heat wave, without working air conditioning, it can be a wee bit oven-like if parked in the sun. But it does give you an opportunity to drive with the windows open and listen to the engine.

 

Deleting the centre pipe is a good way of making it sound very fruity without introducing a drone at motorway speeds. Mine is bog standard though!

 

A lot of turbo petrol S60s are automatic so hopefully its manual-ness will be a plus point.

 

In true Autoshite fashion, I offer the view that a rattly flywheel is the lesser of two evils if the other is a shunting and banging Geartronic autobox. :-D

GLWTS. My S60 is a cracking car (albeit a bit thirsty, but it's a 260bhp T5) & it is a very nice thing to waft about in. it can fair shift on when required..just ask the arsehole in the Mongdeo St220 who came charging up behind me...3rd gear in the Volvo &..bye bye Mongdeo :D I must say however, the turning circle is rather poor. Mines does require some TLC now,it's done nearly 148,000 now.

There is a judder from the front when braking from speed,a clicking c.v joint & I need to get the (important on these T5's) PCV pipework changed, as I do not believe that this has ever been done on mine.

Otherwise...I like it a lot. Oh & mines has heated seats.

It really seems that a slightly rattly car with no air-con in this weather is as desirable as intestinal worms (who'd have thunkit, right?), and today on a sweaty 100 mile tour of the local countryside I realised that getting four figures was quite wildly optimistic on my part. The heat seems to aggravate the rattle and all, but of course the car behaved fine and returned 35mpg on a proper mixed cycle run.

 

So, when something's been up for sale for over two weeks in near half-a-dozen places and you've not even had a single person make a comedy low-ball offer or inform you of a games console they would like to include in a potential swap, it's time to take drastic action.

 

So....without wanting to come across as desperate (because I've successfully* hidden it thus far), I am making my final edit to this post and bump to this thread...

  • £795 is my 'not-desperate-at-all' shiter's cash-in-hand price.... OR
  • £12.50 per ticket for a ROFFLE

The car's details remain below, but TL:DR you are getting a pretty lovely inside-and-out lump of Swedish metal with a good service history, paperwork, two keys, and it'll even have enough petrol to get you home (*eyes the SVM warily*).

 

Anyone wanting to have a speculative roffle ticket post your preferred number and I'll get a numberwang going at some point.

I’d fire £8.50 down.

 

Furry boots you from?

 

I'm five minutes from 15a of the M1 (Northampton).

 

Here's the roffletree with three randoms chosen as per the last three posts. If you have a specific lucky* number let me know and I can change it.

      NOW EDITED:
      Proper funny-face Multipla
      My wife's car for last 8 years
      ELX spec, so has the twin sunroofs
      8v turbo diesel that plods on and on.  And on and on.  Did the 20 mile commute today, outside lane of M1 for a lot of it.
      Dependable to go anywhere. More reliable that was ever in the blueprint !
      Clutch 2016
      Cambelt 2017
      180k and everything still works including the folding mirrors, air con, both sunroofs, all windows, etc
      Some war wounds well what do you expect, some interior sticky plastics but nothing broken


      Some noisy front clonking to deal with -  was told it's the inner ARB bushings despite MOT man being happy.  Just been turning up the stereo
       
      UPDATE
      Now has a Cat-C marker because of this.  Grrr.  The upshot is the insurer valued it at £1k.  Stitched together with cable ties for now.   

      MOT all the way to October
      Thinking roffling at Tenner a ticket - it really is that reliable and I don't want it gone but wife is in ear about it.  Taxed and insured until end of the month, see
      We moved white goods with it last week and a whole fixed panels front end from a classic Mini (Riley Elf ectually) the week before.  So VAN status is achievable as the seats just lift out

      I don't like it. I want a small car. Suzuki Wagon or similar. 
      £350 or roffle at 6 quid each.
      Good:
      159,000 miles. Just under a year's MOT
      Leather Interior (Actually that's a 'bad' to some people)
      Bad:
      Complicated starting method - 2 keys and an immobilizer
      Likes a drink - TADTS (Plus it is Scottish)
      Smells oily sometimes - TADTS
      Tappy noise occasionally. Have been told Vanos - but hasn't affected anything. Might actually just be a loose engine cover.
      Gearbox hangs in a low gear for first 30 seconds or so of driving after cold start. Fine after that. 
      Bodywork has scratches and rust (rear arches)
       
      I don't actually have many pictures...

      Things are a changing folks, the Rover of Smoothness has to go and I think a Rover Roffle is the way for this to happen.
      You can see piccies of the car elsewhere on the forum but will try and post some as soon as I can over the weekend.
      This is really a lovely car that has had some serious money spent on her over the last few years.
      I have had a new rear section of exhaust fitted, a new brake caliper fitted to the N/S rear and it has had the CVT fluid drained and changed by the Rover specialist in St. Albans just a few months ago.  I had a new battery fitted when I bought her as well. She is a lovely smooth driving car, utterly comfortable too and she motors along beautifully. Quibbles? The heated seats don't work but seeing as the seats are velour fabric, that really isn't an issue.  A few giffer scuffs on the bumpers are present and there is a slight ding in the drivers front wing but I have a good wing that will come with the car.  The boot lid will sometimes come down unannounced but I was going to add a spring to the mechanism and see if it helped.  That's it really.  Mileage is around 58,000 or so. MOT till November I think. The old reg will come with the car and the current reg will be retained by me.  No OMG HGF/coolant loss/overheating issues whatsoever.
      She is insured under a classic insurance banner by PBIS. This is a lovely, lovely car.
      Roffle interest at £8 per number? Taxed to get you home. 
       
      If anyone wants to cross my palm with pound notes then £425 will see the car bought for cash tonite mate, no X boxes, sorry.
