      2006 Volvo XC70 - White / Atacama - R Goodies - 171K - Long Island, NY

      It's time... My "Unicorn" is being put up for sale. It's my daily driver, and will continue to be until sold (or until I find something I'm looking for). I've decided that it doesn't make sense for me to go through with the manual swap that I was planning at this point, so I'll be going with a different car. Here are the details:


      Make/Model: Volvo XC70
      Year: 2006
      Mileage: ~185,000
      Color: White / Atacama
      Transmission: Automatic
      Condition: Good to Excellent
      Option packages: Cold Weather, Convenience, Premium Audio (upgraded), Navigation (upgraded), and MORE (see below)!
      Location: Long Island, NY
      VIN: (pending)
      Selling Price: (asking) $8,500
      Contact Information: emails are the best way - Adam - athruc (-at-) gmail.com

      This was a car that I purchased to daily drive, and to turn into a white "V70R" or sorts. It has all sorts of "R" goodies, including (but not limited to)
      -Brembos
      -Cluster
      -HU850
      -Factory Subwoofer
      -Navigation
      -Charcoal Dash
      -Atacama Interior (with charcoal carpeting and Atacama floor mats)
      -Steering Wheel / Airbag
      -17" Pegs (wheels shown in some pictures are long-ago sold)
      -Rear spoiler

      Modifications included (but are not limited to)
      (PH)MIC
      -IPD V70R Sway Bars
      -HD end links
      -GIAC tune
      -IMIV
      -Folding Mirros ("R" style)
      -TKi rear toe bars
      -Poly bushings...
      -QBM strut bar conversion
      -Aluminum door pins and rings
      -S60AWD Eibach Springs
      -LED interior downlights, white cup holder LED, front door handle lights, etc.
      -"Hidden" Hitch (not so hidden) and factory Volvo trailer wiring
      -"HUD"-style IMP Concepts boost gauge (5-25psi)

      Recent maintenance includes (but is not limited to)
      -Spring seats and bearings
      -Hubs/bearings (all 4)
      -PCV
      -Timing Belt (was done at 110K or so - it's in the service history from Volvo)
      -Oil changed with full synthetic every 3-5K
      -Ignition Coils
      -Spark plugs
      -Motor Mounts

      I am sure that I am forgetting quite a few things, and will add as I go through my records and remember.

      This car is a reliable and consistent daily driver, but I don't have the time to take the project through to where I wanted to, and I'm going to be looking for something, well, different. I'm open to possible partial trades (turbodiesel, Wrangler, stupid small and sporty, etcl)...

      ...and some more pictures (sorry, I didn't use the tripod for the majority of the photos:



























































      Props to Joe from http://detailersworkshop.com/ for the uber slick exterior detail.

      Now wait a minute here...


      Seriously, it's very nice.
      I got this for Adam several years ago and it was a VERY nice one to start with.
      I've seen it in person with the Atacama and it's awesome

      I had been considering that side-sill for a while Jim - nice touch.

      Some (poor) pictures have been added. I'll be trying to take some proper shots this weekend or next.

      What are you going to replace it with? I'm tempted to put my FG S60R up for trade/sell to get a Unicorn like that and then complete the Ocean Race trim treatment. GLWS (bump)

      I'm really interested to know about the suspension set up. What did you use to lower it?

      Car looks absolutely stunning...!!!!!

      It currently sits on S60AWD Eibach springs and V70 shocks/struts. It's at a good height now (could go for another 1/2 taller maybe), and sits a tad higher than in the photos I posted. Weather and time have kept me from posting exterior photos as she sits.

      TKi rear toe bars in the back, IPD rear camber kit at full tilt, and some stepped drill bit action on the front struts to try to keep camber at bay.

      Gary, the way you go through cars, I'll probably still have this for you when you're ready for the next one

      Just put on the summer tires and figured "what the hey, I'll put on some fresh brake pads." Nitrile shims = no more brake squeal!

      I forgot how easy it was to change pads on R calipers

      Still available! Updated mileage and pricing. The trade with Gary has fallen through (he's been completely MIA, I hope he's alright), so I'm looking to move on to something either bigger or more fuel efficient.

      I also made a trip to a PDR guy for some minor (and one major) ding and the sheetmetal is better than when it left the factory!

      For the suspension, did you only change the springs to get it that low? My 19" HECIO Volution VIIs would look really nice with this.

      S60AWD Eibach springs with V70 shocks/struts. Are you trying to sell me your rims in my for sale thread Chris? I'd go with some 18" VST Monoblock R's if that were the case

      Rich, I forgot you were a Volvo guy again. They're pretty in white, aren't they?
