NICE!

I love V70s and VRs are sexy as ****.

From the sound of it you are probably running a BSR tune (or RICA) with the Eurosport Tuning intake/downpipe/exhaust set up?


Arnt you on over at swedespeed?

First car I drove was a 1995 Volvo 850 Turbo...Loved that car, but had to sell it for miscellaneous reasons (I'd still be driving it today). For a little while, I was driving a 2002 S60 AWD - Naturally aspirated and complete trash...if you ARE going to buy a Volvo, get a turbo, pleeeease...

This past October I got my hands on my 2004 S60R. Only had the time (and money) to do very minor things, but will have more in the future. We also sold our 2005 Mini Cooper (Non-S) for a 2008 Volvo C30.

For the price of a Volvo, you can buy much better performance or much better comfort...but I think the brand makes for a happy medium between the two. Regardless, there is something satisfying about a turbo-charged brick flying down the road...

BTW - I really wanna get my R on an AWD dyno...any suggestions for the Philly area? And I do have a talent for bringing dead threads back from ancient crypts...even if they are only 5 or 6 lines down...

Rob, shut up. You do not make nearly that much to the wheels. Crank, if you are lucky.

If you are really serious about it, check out www.volvospeed.com. That is a great site with a GREAT forum and really good resources. My name is Oreo931 on there too.

Look into getting a T5 or Turbo model. You will be very sorry if you get an n/a. They dont have too much power and there isnt much room for upgrading. As far as DD status, its one of the best in my opinion. Although they might not be the sportiest cars around, they are right in the middle of a sports car and a luxury car in terms of the car overall. The 95+ 850's and the 98+ s70's are great cars. Gas mileage depends on the kind of driving that you do. I get 20mpg city and 26-27mpg highway in my 850. The 850 turbo's do not come with a manual transmission, but it is possible to get an s70 t5/turbo with a manual transmission. If you have any more questions, feel free to ask, or check out that site.

I dont mind not having much power...i hope to get this strictly as a dd and not planning on modding...i would plan to buy a seperate project car to work on with this as my dd...there is a 98 s70 t5 on autotrader with 138k on the clock for $3000...i think that sounds like a good deal but not positive

PM me the link and I would be happy to give you my opinion. As long as the car was taken care of, mileage shouldnt matter too much. The only expensive problems that these cars have are tranny failures (which happen ~170k-210k if the tranny wasnt taken care of) and rear main seal leaks (can happen any time if the engine wasnt taken care of). My yellow currently has 176k and it runs like a champ!

Edit: I also have a '98 s70 n/a that my sister usually drives. It has 133k on the clock and is going strong as well.

double edit: the s70 t5's make 240 hp stock. Thats a pretty decent amount of power
