      Wow, that's cheap and crazy low miles for a 36 year old car! I like the contrasting piping on the seats - must be a GL thing. I wonder how bad the body rot is?

      I was thinking the same thing about that interior. Wouldn't surprise me if that interior alone is worth $400.

      Happy new year indeed. Heading out into 40ish degree weather to do a few things before rain tomorrow and because 40ish is better than 20s. And because why not start the year off right?

      Not much on the local CL. Jared- is this a 901 black face premium? Seems cheap.

      That's the one I put in my T-5R - Pull a Part had them for $25 and I called the dealer to get the code. The OCD in me could not deal with the gray face 901 that the car came with. I also have the OG cassette deck as well.

      My resolution is to enjoy 2020 because it's the year I been waiting for.... The year I can go buy a Yellow T-5R wagon and import it. The year of the 25 year old rule for 1995!!!

      HAHAHAHAHAHA yeah I was on that plan too until mine fell in my lap.

      Now the question is how many people are actually going to do it? Gotta pay to play with the big boys in the EU market.

      The Shop is still making adjustments on my S60, but had to order another valve body gasket since they've gone back in enough times.
      I want it fixed.
      I also miss my car lol.
      Guess I'm keeping it a few more years.


      I do all my own stuff, so besides some early warranty stuff, this is the first time a shop has done stuff, I guess I shouldn't complain about a little maintenance, but I wanna

      Unfinished thought there.
      Punch something?
      Cry?
      Flip out?
      Scream?
      All of the above?
      Absence makes the heart grow fonder. I feel your pain. Iíve been very lucky and just ran across the receipt from last October 2018 and almost threw up again.

      Anybody interested in a project XC90 for under $3k? Gotta wonder where they pull their copy for their ads. ďAsh Gold Metallic exterior with light taupe/tan interior.Ē Iíve never seen Willow Green/ Oak Arena described that way before!

      Ď04 2.5T, 113k miles. Door cards are beat up, typical seam split in the front passenger seat, and shift boot peeling (unusual, in my experience). But headliner doesnít look bad, so I suspect the sunroof drain fix was done early on this one. Engine bay is shiny though, and not in a good way.

      https://www.carmaniausa.com/2004-Vol...ndd6BjDIFNU%3d

      If anyoneís interested, I could possibly give it a look with my VIDA/DICE. Itís nearly identical to my former XC90.

      I have a real hard time leaving my car over night at a shop. Iíll even pay in advance for all the known parts needed and make sure they arrive before Iíll drop the car off, at 7:30 am. Then I show up with or without a call to pick it up.

      Iím hated in sure lol.

      Absence makes the heart grow fonder. I feel your pain. Iíve been very lucky and just ran across the receipt from last October 2018 and almost threw up again.

      I want the car back but more importantly I want it back right, patience is not my strong suite.

      At the moment I'm driving the wife's old 2003 CRV, interestingly I find the rudimentary awd actually kinda fun since you can feel which corner is clawing for traction No abs and minimal technology, actually makes for an engaging drive.

      Although it's starting to feel peppy which means it's been too long

      They told me it would take at least 2 days to get it done and adjusted so I was prepared. New years also added a delay, fingers crossed for today.

      It's in good company and inside, if anyone's gonna break in and steal a car it's not gonna be my Volvo lol.

      Now the question is how many people are actually going to do it? Gotta pay to play with the big boys in the EU market.
      Been playing for the past 12 months in the other market. Not Euro one. Lost two auctions for the ones I wanted. One auction I lost by $225 dollars because I fall asleep at 330am when it was going on and the broker tried to call me to see if they could bid higher with the price I told them to limit at.

      Was wondering the same thing. They must have some type of rolling lift that gets the cars up there.

      I don't know (sorry those were just 2 quick stock photos I found online).

      I'll ask when I pick up my swede, I can't imagine having a giant forklift just for that like I used to use to unload equipment at an old job, has to be a lift.

      I have no need, but kinda wanna Dyno my car while it's there lol (assuming it gets done)

      My 98 AWD manual EX CR-V was loaded, had ABS. No ABS in 2003, five years later??
      I kinda enjoyed it for the same reasons, but it was hard to drive on long distances.

      When I first started dating my wife I said the same thing, no way a 2003 Honda wouldnít have ABS, sure as ****, she was right, she bought the base awd model new off the lot in So Cal in 2003.


      No keyless entry (weíve replaced like 4 door lock cylinders)
      No ABS
      Cloth seats
      Steelie wheels
      Single CD & Tape player

      And the picnic table in the trunk, she loves this lol.

      Sheís driven the hell out of this thing, 225k miles, surprisingly low in maintenance costs, sheís a little sad to be selling it (sheís now in a 2014 MDX chock full of tech)
