      Smile Free Carfax through end of April

      Hi all, I signed up for the 60 day unlimited pass during my hunt for the next car (which turns out to be a C30 R-design).

      If you're buying or selling on here and would like a carfax, please PM me the plate # and state.

      Sorry, I know this isn't a for sale thread, just figured it was most relevant here.
      -Allen

      Disregard the below, no longer needed:
      **since this thing is getting so much attention, if anyone knows where I can find reasonably-priced 18" Midirs for this C30 I'm buying, that'd be swell!

      One sent, just keep in mind it needs to be plate # and state, not VIN (unlimited package only gives you 5 by vin)

      I may sent you one later today. Going to look at my first Volvo this afternoon.
      Thanks so much for offering to share.

      Can someone that's taken me up on this please let me know which link works without requiring any login/registration?

      Actually, I guess anyone without a carfax account can click these and tell me which (if either) lets you see the report?

      Thanks! Just contacted him. There's a local place that will recondition my janky ones for $185 a piece but at $380 with tpms I'd rather start with a new set.

      Awww, he's unwilling to ship
      Any chance there's a volvo enthusiast convoy taking place from CT any time soon that would be willing to move some wheels?

      Are you going to Carlisle? Maybe post up in that thread if you are and see if anyone going there is willing to bring them there. That's probably your best shot.

      I mentioned it to him. Hopefully. It is a good time, and maybe parts movement via ss user methods works for this instance.

      We should start up a new subforum for parts transportation wanted.

      Use the myCARFAX app, no subscription required and you enter plate and state. Can see all records of the car. My workaround that's FREE!

      This is amazing. Maybe it's finally time to buy another phone that has space for more apps.

      Installing now. Wow, this is going to be fun. I was already considering buying a subscription but this is pretty great.

      @Jared what do you have, is it rooted? I have a decent S3 I'm not using, that can be all yours if you like. However, it's Verizon, not sure if we have to unlock it. I can do that for you!

      According to Verizon, any 4G phone is unlocked so all you would have to do is take it to a Metro store and get the sim card in there. The screen IS however cracked and I haven't used it in a long time but it's probably decent, I don't think a glass replacement is too 'spensive. Lemme wipe it and hand it over.

      Aack, why do all these northeasterners refuse to ship?!
      (I mean, I totally understand it, honestly)

      I'd be more than happy to pay someone extra to ship these for me if they were local to LI.

      I don't think myCarFax is a full blown CarFax record. It's primarily for maintenance records. It's super useful for that, but it won't show accident reports, the date the car was manufactured, the interior/exterior colors when manufactured, etc. Just have to understand its limitations.

      Manufacture date wasn't even reported for either of my 850s. My T-5R was built 7/94 and the first entry on the carfax isn't until 12/94.....took 6 months from the time it was built to land in 'Murica.

      Interesting. The CarFax is typically one of the easiest ways to determine build date and for cars which are preliminarily posted on dealer sites without any color details, the CarFax often offers this helpful piece of information.

      Your car must have ridden over on the slow boat. lol

      Well, to be fair, my T-5R is kind of a bad example being a pre-production T-5R and all. The fact that it took 6 months to get here is about the least weird thing going on with its history.

      My R was built 9/96 and had landed in Maryland by 10/96.
