      There are literally only two solutions to this issue, either your heater core or fan are messed up, or your sensors are messed up. That's it.

      ~$10k USD. Very fair price for a low milage high spec single owner car with records!

      Point of comparison, I (happily) paid a little over 3k USD for a beat to hell inside and out S40 AWD with more...
    3. Aftermarket seats? Don't want to go full race, but more support than stock

      Bought the car with seats (and interior in general) in rough shape. A shampoo will do them good but won't make them look new either, so I'm considering replacing them. Also have quite a few other...

      Agreed that an AWD C30 build makes far more sense than trying to restore this to as is was.

      I'd go check it out if I were close (I'm not), that car would easily sell for 2-3x what he's asking even with some more minor undisclosed issues in my area (SE USA).

      If it's not all rusted...

      Will this gauge cluster and pedals fit in an 06 S40? If it will, would be interested in both.

      Going to the C30 Crew's Tail of the Dragon event April 23-26 with my S40.

      Most people are staying at Fontana resort, but the dates are really filling up, so I rented an Airbnb cabin since it was...

      When I let off I get all kinds of fun noise. If I'm going to ask/pay (I don't expect anyone to work for free) for a new tune I'll want to wait till things are better established.

      I mean don't get me wrong those are cool, but they don't do what I'm looking for.

      Burble / fire tune?

      An AE86 followed me around for a while the other night. We played, and I could keep up, best I could tell, but ....

      He made fire and loud noises. I did not.

      Normally I'm fine with that - his...

      Chances are you just spent the big money. Buy new front seats (or have them re-skinned) and barring a major failure you should be good for the foreseeable future. Have it painted or wrapped if you...

      I have a S40 but same idea - previous owner put in a double din aftermarket stereo, big touchscreen and a backup camera. It's doable but make sure you do it right.

      I hope you enjoy our, but the V50, assuming in good condition, was the better deal by far, even for what you paid.

      I paid a little over 3k for my 06 AWD M66 S40 with 103k miles, seller gave me a deal and was just looking to get it out of the garage.

      At 2k you're getting that for less than half value, easy.

      If one is on the way out the others likely aren't far behind, so yeah, do them all while you're in there.

      If you can do it yourself it's really not that bad a job.

      Probably just a hose, might be the pump, hard to say.

      Cool, good info. Thanks!

      I'm down in Charleston, SC, but my take-away here is "look for a skinhead in a falling down barn with a dirt floor" -- we have plenty of those.

      Damn, good job there. Definitely more successful than the attempt made by my car's previous owner.

      Not terrible but not...

      Mind sharing what it cost to get it coated? I like the look, and if I ever stop being lazy and get some more tame mufflers I may at least have the tips done.

      Actually... I think you've basically fixed everything likely to go wrong at this point, and in my experience, based on a 2006 V70 2.5T that went to 235k miles before it was totaled, you should be...

      One of very few benefits to living in SC -- state law requires all insurance includes zero cost windshield glass replacement.

      I'll second the "pay a pro" recommendation, though. Do it yourself...

      Edit: my recommendation is irrelevant since they aren't made in that size. Good luck in your search.

      Buy it for $1k, get a junkyard M66 and VIDA/VDASH.

      Exterior looks ok, interior is worn but serviceable.

      If you're comfortable doing the transmission swap I say go for it.

      To put it another...

      Good luck.

      Yeah, about half the cars I've driven over the years have been manual, but the last 2 before the S40 were autos and it's been "like falling off a bike" going back, at times. If you're not smelling...
