      SOLD: 2005 v70r m66

      I bought this V70R in November of 2016, and it's now time for me to pass it on to the next enthusiast. I had plans to turn this thing into a beast of a wagon, but I run my own company and don't have the time or money to do such. I'd rather someone enjoy it than me hoping to 'complete' a crazy build someday.

      2005 V70R M66 with about 120k miles (I'll get an exact mileage later tonight)
      Interior is Nordic Blue
      Located in South East Idaho
      Clean title with no known-accidents

      I had purchased it from DLR Nordic in Portland Oregon, who had done the following at about 108,000 miles:
      • Timing Belt with Tensioners
      • Spark Plugs
      • Air Filter
      • Fuel Filter
      • Cabin Filter
      • OE 4C Struts - Fronts
      • Front Rotors and Pads

      I did quite a bit of maintenance/upgrades to complete and surpass a "Stage-0" with the following items done:
      • IPD cat-back exhaust
      • IPD “HD” lower control arms – L&R
      • IPD Strut Bar Mount Conversion Kit
      • IPD Poly Subframe Bushing Kit
      • IPD Endlink Kit Front and Rear
      • Lemforder Balljoint L&R
      • IPD Boost Gauge Kit
      • Silicone Vacuum Hose Kit
      • Hutchinson Upper Engine Stabilizer Mount
      • Hutchinson Transmission Torque Mount
      • Forge CBV Upgrade Kit
      • High Performance Turbo Control Valve

      For maintenance, the following was completed:
      • Xemodex refurbished CEM
      • Genuine Volvo Right Front Axle Assembly
      • Manual transmission flush – Genuine Volvo OIl
      • Angle Gear/Rear Dif flush – Genuine Volvo Fluid
      • Haldex Flush – Genuine Volvo Fluid
      • Seafoam Engine Flush
      • Routine oil changes every 5k miles (Mobil 1)

      The following items come with the car:
      • 17" Pegasus rims mounted with Michelin Pilot Sport 3 x4 (about 6,000 miles on them)
      • 17" Pegasus rims mounted with Hankook Winter i*cept iZ2 (about 6,000 miles on them)
      • Privacy cargo screen
      • Factory roof rails (never installed)
      • Factory Rubber floor mats
      • Diagnostic computer with OBDII adapter (VIDA DICE)

      The car drives and handles very well and I've had no faults with the 4C. The engine pulls strong with the boost gauge showing steady boost throughout the RPM range. I really can find few faults with the mechanical side of the car, with the exception with of the clockspring giving an intermittent fault. On the cosmetic side, the hard surfaces (dash, etc) are in good condition, transmission tunnel has some typical paint flecking off. The front seats are in pretty standard condition for the S60R/V70R of this year/age, with the rear seats being in very good condition. The exterior is in good condition, other than scratches that were present when I bought the vehicle. The previous owner was attempting to pull something off of his roof rack (I think a bike?) and scratched the passenger door and a-pillar (visible in photos).

      **Edit**
      There were a couple things that I've forgotten about the car. In the photo link, there is a photo of an oxidation spot on the roof. It looks pretty minor and should be able to be buffed out easily. I'll probably have it buffed out anyways.
      Another issue is the radio. I believe there might be a blown fuse inside the radio as it will not turn on. I've tested the power and constant, and they both have the necessary power to them.

      I am wanting to get $11,500 for the car, however I am open to negotiations.

      Do you have any pics of the interior? A buddy saw the post and wanted to know, but doesn't have an account.

      I do not have any available right now. Wanted to get it cleaned up and personal items out before posting those. I'll update this post in the next couple days with the interior shots.

      Is there something up with the hood? 3rd pic looks like clearcoat issues, or is just dirty?

      I thought the same thing! Typically people stare at you weird if you're not a Chevy/Dodge/Ford truck lover in this area! You are correct, I'm in the Idaho Falls area. I'll have to keep an eye out for your S60R

      It's just dirty. Had a good frost in the morning and then the wind blew dust everywhere which made the dust stick in a weird pattern. Gonna get it clean tomorrow and pull into a warehouse to get better shots of overall condition.

      I have been looking for something to replace our Audi S6 wagon. Have you had a pre- purchase inspection done? Can you send/ post the vin number. I am also very interested in interior, engine bay, and underbody photos.

      I've got a BMW currently, so I think I'm going to stick with them for a little while. Nice having a dealership locally if anything goes awry, otherwise there isn't a whole lot of good Import/Volvo specialists around this area. Unless I can maybe get my hands on a V60 Polestar, but I have a total itch for speed and most Volvo wagons are too slow for my liking.

      The car has been sold to an awesome enthusiast, who came down today in some nasty snow conditions to check the car out and ultimately purchase it. Couldn't be happier that Han Volvo, the V70R, is going to a loving new home. He's a great guy, and hope to see him on here when I lurk the forum.

      I appreciate all the amazing people on this forum, it has been a wealth of knowledge during my short 3 year tenure with a Volvo, and it's been a great community!
