      Yeah, they look like they've been dyed, painted, re-coated, which is fine I'm sure they needed it. 17 year old atacama doesn't look that good.

      The person you replied to last logged on 4 and a half years ago. I don't think he's going to respond, lol.

      What he meant to say is "due to clearance between the bent crash bar and the misaligned hood". I mean, look at that fender gap between the pass side fender and the hood? Seats have been sprayed and...

      How are the strut towers? We've seen a few early P2's on here from the northern states that get a little soft.

      If you're looking for more sidewall to help soften the ride, going from a 45 series tire to a 50 series will increase the sidewall height by less than a half inch, all other things being equal.

      It came with the multimedia package on 2011 V8's and was a dealer installed option on other years, assuming you had the pop up screen navigation system.

      I think the dates above are a little off. It failed the inspection on 5/27/20. Certainly all of the fail then pass safety inspections would warrant some investigation. I'm glad I live in a state that...

      No worries- in your original post above you called it a "parts store" so I was thinking an auto parts store like NAPA, not an auto paint/body shop supply store. Still a hassle, compared to getting it...

      "Dark states", lol. Thanks for the link. I haven't gotten around to removing the front plate on the P*.

      Other thing to check is the transmission serial number as I thought early '07s had the valve body issue still.

      Yeah it is.

      I like the one up in MA that was like $500 more and less than half the miles that I posted earlier this week.

      For filters I always use Mann or Mahle which is the Volvo filter without the blue box. I have never used any additive or done any type of engine flush.

      I have the Motive tool and have used it many times - works well.

      I haven't bled the brakes on a P3 car yet. Just make sure you do your research and have the order down - traditionally it was...

      That's a tough one - how many miles on the car?

      I'm wondering if it's maybe the right side half shaft. I would check motor mounts too.

      Congrats!

      I saw that 10/10 difficulty rating to install the hitch and was a little surprised because it seemed much easier than that. Just take your time and a spare set of hands is helpful when...

      Wow, that's too bad. I've been buying Volvo touch up paint for decades. If they're concerned about shelf life then centralize inventory like they do with other parts, ie, keep less on hand and...

      No disagreement here, an appropriately large range reflective of varying condition/work that's potentially needed on a 16 year old car.

      All versions of the five cylinder in the P3 cars are subject to TJ's related to oil burning unfortunately so I don't know that I'd recommend them.

      Car looks nice. There's nothing really out of the ordinary to be concerned about these cars, just normal stuff.
