      FS: 2004 BlackSaph / Gobi SR, 145k, SF Bay Area, Stage 2+, $9k OBO with lots of extras

      === Price reduced to $8k obo ===

      What started out innocently a few weeks ago as just "cleaning out the garage" has turned into me deciding to sell both of my Volvo projects: this car and a 122s to be listed soon. I loved this car from the moment I bought it in 2010 and even now it's hard to sell. It's still a blast to drive and will be a lot of fun for whoever the next lucky owner is.

      Asking $8000 OBO (price updated to reflect additional parts/labor put in to resolve known issues) with all spare parts included that are listed below. I want to sell the car + all the parts together so I don't have to deal with them separately. If you have the time to resell / list the parts on swedespeed it just makes this car even cheaper for you. I will not sell parts separately at this point.

      She has just about every bolt on mod except for tuning for water meth and putting in a new turbo.

      Here are more details. Pictures will be posted within a week or two after I get the car detailed. Wanted to get this listing up first with all the information so people could get in touch ahead of time if interested.

      THE BAD

      Interior is not in great shape (7/10)
      - Passenger side door panel speaker grill is cracked
      - Some stains in interior carpeting
      - Backseat and passenger leather is in good condition, driver's seat is worn.
      - Center console scratched up, should get a repaint or be replaced with an '05

      Exterior:
      - No front winglets.
      - Rear valence has many chips from city parking
      - Front hood paint is in rough condition
      ... Great candidate for a really nice wrap (I was considering myself but figured the buyer would rather see the original paint ...)

      Electrical:
      - Stereo works but input selection is very twitchy

      Transmission:
      - Had a new clutch installed at ~40K, probably coming up on another soon (no specific issues yet though)

      Check Engine Light:
      - Shop diagnosed this as an O2 sensor issue, I'm not surprised given that it is running an EST DP and high flow cat. I'm happy to pull codes / run VIDA to show no other issues.

      Finally got a chance to get her cleaned up and detailed. Exterior has held up surprisingly well for a 13 year old daily driver in SF.
