Oh you wouldn't believe the aftermarket for them... IPD is a good start. http://www.ipdusa.com/
Guess the BD owner was just BS'ing. Congrats on the new purchase!

Yeah :( I contacted him twice, and then his user and thread disappeared. But I believe I'm going to enjoy this wagon quite a bit!

The place takes a picture of you when you buy their cars...I look like Im looking away, but I had an exhausting week and day. So probably why I look more insane than usual (And looks like I have a bowlcut :smt021 :smt011 )

At least you have a car to get around while the wagon is getting a new heart!

I have always loved the tail lights on those V70's. never really saw a modded(even lightly) volvo. cant wait to see what you do with it(and of course the legacy)

Let the modding begin!
Fiddled with the STi lip from the Legacy, decided not to run it on the Volvo.

Looks terrible. Take it off. Don't spend time and money on the Volvo when you could be putting that toward the Legacy.

Yeah, I didnt put it on. I just had it clamped to see how it would look. Not going to put it on

EXACTLY. THANK YOU.

I mean, I love Volvos to death, and I have nothing against them, but you know very well which group of owners is far better :grin: You have to get back into the Legacy scene. That thing is way to far along to let sit now.

Yeah, after thinking about it all, I really dont need to do anything to the Volvo, was going to lower it, but that would be 300 I could put towards the Legacy. So I highly doubt I will do anything to it.

leave the volvo alone my brother has a 97 850 t5, than thing was pretty good back in its glory days in winter mode could outhandle quite a lot of awd cars now its just slowly dying. good car if you can just do maintenance it will serve you well.

Thats awesome haha. I can imagine that being a pimp-mobile.

Whats with the photoshopped trophies? Haha


-edit-
They look photoshopped, but the reflection in the car says otherwise.

Prices from different Volvo meets.
Two or three of the guys i work with are tubocharging their 240's
My best mate is turboswaping his 79 245.

They got a special vibe that gets to some people.

Cruisers, rallycrossers and redneckmobiles :P

So what made you sell this so quickly? I admit I love Volvos, but mainly the older ones, like my old 244 :)
