      Other than the wipers breaking 1/3 of the way home (rainx ftw), it seems pretty solid for $950.

      So, are you trying to get R wagons in every color? Next up: Black. And then the coup de grace: Olive Green.

      I have no idea lol. Right now we just needed anything else that we are ok with driving in salt now that I have a job I have to drive to and this, being a Maine car since 2000, fit the profile nicely. I sure wasn't looking for an R for this role, but this thing came up again (it's been for sale on and off since August 2016) and Will and I were talking about it and we were both like wtf what could possibly go wrong with a $1k 850R?

      Who knows what we are going to do with it after the winter. Unless we finally succeed in finding a house with more space over the winter, we'll probably have to sell it in the spring because, like Ian said,

      Yeah, there is no more room at the inn lol. Did you notice that it's parked across the street where we only put things when we don't have space anywhere else? Lol. The boat will be leaving for the winter tomorrow so that will help but still, it's pretty out of control. The R on the lawn, the T-5R in the building, the T5 SE in the end of the driveway not covered by the building, and now the 3 cars that are cleared for winter use on the street.

      Come cruise by any time and check it out. As you probably noticed it's parked where you always park when you're visiting the neighbors so I bet all the other neighbors thinks it's your car LOL.

      Yes it is! I'd say so!!! The first couple hours on the drive home while the flat spots were working out of the tires was not that fun but then the rest of the drive was like omg I just bought an almost decent 850R for under $1k??!??

      I'd love to. I need a barn first though. I'd really love to have a Turquoise/Tan 850R estate. I'm pretty sure it's the rarest of all the color combos but wow does that pop. Don't forget the Aubergine and Platinum Pearl T-5R prototypes! I don't think I'll be able to get my hands on any of those, though.

      I have a few friends who want to take a road trip through Europe next summer and I'm not sure I'll be able to find a manual yellow T-5R estate in my price range, so picking up a manual Olive T-5R estate is very much in play for that. Unless I try to find a buyer for this white estate in Europe (white 850Rs are exceptionally rare in Europe, more so than T-5Rs) and ship this there to use for that road trip before selling it.

      OK let's get down to business. WTF did we buy here.



      • Tires are absolutely terrifying. Fronts are, uh, I don't even remember what they are. I think they match but not 100% sure on that either. One of the rears is a P6 and the other is a General. So 3 different kinds of tires. Lol. Sure it was pouring rain on the drive home but I was following my dad in the '99 on Michelin Defenders (which are pretty bad in the wet themselves) and I was totally understeering on some of these corners going the same speed as him. Also couldn't go past about 1/3 throttle without breaking them loose.....and this thing isn't making full boost in the first place.
      • As mentioned above, not making full boost.
      • Brand new brakes.....so new that the parking brake wasn't even properly worn in. Drove around with it up a couple clicks for a while and it that cured the problem. Only problem is the brand new brakes are total trash. They're brand new and they're warped . So it probably needs brakes.
      • Speedometer doesn't work
      • ABS light on
      • Odometer broken
      • Interior light switch super flaky
      • Tons of lights burnt out in the interior.
      • Driver's door speaker isn't working
      • Power steering pump is HOWLING
      • Rear suspension has to be on some serious drugs to be that high
      • Both fenders are toast (one's dented, one has the classic rusted out fender syndrome from where the mud flap wore through the paint)
      • Tailgate has some awful touch ups with what looks like white rust-oleum or something.





      Sorry for the one lame-ass picture last night. Probably one of the least descriptive posts I've ever put up.........but hey it was 1 AM so I was exhausted and just kinda wanted to see what you guys would say (I actually had my finger on the submit button before I had written any description for the picture lol).

      Anyway here are some real pictures.












      Ouch






      That looks like shiit







      Interior is actually not bad at all!











      Ouch. I have a full set of this trim in stock but I'm not sure I want to break up the set to fix this.....





      Worst instrument cluster I've ever seen that's still in a car. This has definitely got to go.





      One of the better R bumper zip-tie repairs I've seen






      Came with a complete set of both R mats and rubber mats!!!





      Looks like it used to have a CD changer and someone took it out




      Also looks like the Persus are original to the car. Whatever. They're going away regardless. Probably going to put the Volans with zLines that go to the red R on here for now.

      You bought a cheap-ass car hahaha, still cool though! Interior looks great at least

      Try bedding the brakes hard, if they're brand new they hopefully are not warped and just weren't broken in properly

      LOL I thought the same thing from your first photo of this car


      Sounds like you (optimistically) need tires, an ABS module, some power steering fluid, possibly front brakes, something with the rear suspension, and the rest is cosmetic. Not too bad... But I'm sure you'll discover more lol

      Yeah pretty much. Also heard something clunking in the rear suspension but we'll be in there anyway to address that.


      Already started raiding the parts stash. Time to make that dash look correct.

      My yellow car had rear air shocks that the original owner put on it and when fully "inflated" looked like yours. I got rid of them as soon as I could.

      Another recommendation to re-bed the brakes, they shouldn't need to be replaced if they are relatively new.

      I saw it last night while I was dropping off something to your folks, and your Dad gave me the grand tour! I'm very, very envious, issues aside. What a steal. I'm actually excited to see some of the work get done that you plan on putting into it, since a couple of the problems you guys have right now with the R are issues I'm having with my 855T, so I asked your Dad to let me know whenever you guys are getting certain projects done on it so I can observe and report. (I still need to address the odometer)

      But yeah, parking them side by side gets me seeing double. Let's do a winter shoot with them both!? How cool would that be?!

      I might give that a try bedding the brakes. Never had issues with new brakes but then I'm not starting with cheap parts. Or maybe I will just go straight to 302s. We'll see.

      What I really liked was the interior. For a car pushing 300k it looks and feels incredible from the inside...

      Well, yeah, that's without saying, but you intended on picking this up as a beater, no? And you only just picked this one up about two days ago, as in, it hasn't received the magical JaredR touch yet. I'm more so marveling at the care it obviously had received prior to you adopting it, despite its current flaws.

      The interiors in all of the 850s really look pretty much the same as they did when I got them.....but, to your point, how many cars do you see with the service book this full?

      You both have got me beat. The PO had it stamped one last time before he sold it to me at 140K.

      He did keep good records, which I have continued...

      I have some catching up to you on the miles though...

      The sad part is we may never know exactly how much. The cluster isn't receiving any information about how far the car is going (neither the speedo or trip computer are functional) so I'm not sure if the mileage is being recorded anywhere right now. That would be disappointing. I'm hoping for a big number. Who knows maybe this will end up being the high mileage queen if we don't sell it in the spring.

      Most Volvo people think that my odometer is broken or was broken in the past when I show them my mileage, but nope it's correct. The good thing is I can verify it since my 855 is a '95 and has OBD I & OBD II. So the little blinking lights will tell the truth.
