      My P1 was Mrs. Prolix's personal ride for a time. If you look at his thread "Temporary Transportation", you will see that PxAr made a few upgrades in the NVH department that have endeared the car to me. He also fixed most of the known problems, like sunroof drains, and he even installed a brand new windshield. A neighbor has the same car in Mazda guise, and it has none of the visual/tactile appeal that is so characteristic of Volvos. You could get a Mazda 3 and spend a week adding insulation everywhere, but you still wouldn't have a Volvo, nor AWD. MNIWT made the move to WRX for better AWD performance, but I'm way over the Boy Racer look and feel. ymmv,

      Ps. Still in all, speed is so addictive; anyone got a 2.5" charge pipe for a P1?

      What is this? SB actually approves of a P80 AWD vehicle? It truly is the end of the world, LOL! I think the price is completely acceptable.

      I don't think I've seen a cleaner interior for one of these in a very long time. The leather has so little damage. (Mine has less wear to the front seat inserts, but that's because Fred had them restitched.) Has to be garaged it's whole life, right? The e-brake has some flaking, but easy replacement. Missing the front bumper inserts, but also not a big deal. If I were to make it mine, add a spoiler, jewels, front strut brace and maybe delete the towing package.

      I always said if I bought one on the east coast, I'd have you get it where I wanted. You want to fly all the way to San Diego and drive it back? That's some trip!

      I said YOU buy it. I prefer my cars wrong wheels and end driven. For now.

      However I do know a lot about p80 awd so while it doesnít scare me I choose not to proactively do maintenance on them.

      Manual it along the way, the rest is just p80 dialing in.

      If I had the $ and didn't have my 850R, I would buy it and just delete the AWD lol. And then throw in a FWD M66. Would be epic.

      LOL, I know you meant for me to buy and you to "dial". I'm saying I don't think I'd drive it from San Diego to Connecticut, and I certainly don't think you'd do that for me. Cuts into H2O projects for you. I guess a trailer is the way to go, but that's extra $$$.

      For me, manual could wait until the auto fails eventually. This is all crazy talk, of course.

      It's just so goddamn beautiful.

      Uh yeah. And if I knew when I started that project what I know now, it's the platform I would have been looking to build on for my 850R project.

      Weird question... Did these originally have the cargo mat in the back with the little rounded edge the same as the floor mats? It doesn't quite fit right, but maybe it's not aligned right after they moved it to open the third row. I don't remember ever seeing one of those.

      It was an option. Iíve seen one before. Itís not exactly in right especially with the 3rd row belts out.

      That one may not even be still at the dealer. Was listed a few weeks ago. A member reported a long list of needs, IIRC.

      Went looking for the original posts about that 855 Turbo, but couldn't find them. Did see the price on this one was lowered to $6,800.

      I thought he said he had a 15k offer? Does that mean he rejected it or what

      Ahhh!!! Somebody save me from myself!

      2000 V70R Laser/Black 90k - $8,600
      https://sandiego.craigslist.org/csd/...088705388.

      Something seems off to me. Either scammer or flipper. If you really knew what you had, you would take car of the little things like wheel center cap, bumper grill inserts, align headlight wipers, PDR dent on hatch before posting what appears to be a beautiful R. Has anyone reached out and heard from the seller ?

Missing the front bumper inserts, but also not a big deal.
      Closer look seems like a small ding just behind the passenger door on the driver's side, and another one/two on the right side of the tailgate below the window. Both seem PDR ready.

      ALL CAPS ad, definitely almost always means flipper. I sent him/her an email with several questions. I'll let you know what happens.

      Edit: Plus, any enthusiast owner would put this up on BaT and/or here, not on Craigslist. They probably "know" what they have, but are just looking to make a quick profit. Real question is why the original owner traded it into a dealer and didn't sell it outright.

      Yeah, thatís why I put the word ďknowĒ in quotes. Ugh. I sent a link to a friend because heís a ďcar guyĒ that was interested in mine. If he decides to buy it, it would be in good hands. Works as a dealership mechanic (non-Volvo) and currently has a total of 16 vehicles in his herd.

      I donít know what was said but Iíll give my PSA.

      Itís totally just the flu.. Italy always deploys the army every flu season, right?

      I love yíall, youíve been my volvo buddies for years. I canít believe Iím saying this but you probably need to stop looking at Volvos for sale and start paying attention to whatís coming.

      This little virus is everywhere and itís spread is measured in exponents. Sure, youíre young, youíre healthy.. but what about your mom and dad? Your grandparents?

      The world you know is about to get upended for a little while. Volvos will be for sale after this too.

      LOL, donít let the ramblings of a madman bother you.

      You know what crazy is? Crazy is majority rules. Take germs, for example. Uh-huh. In the eighteenth century, no such thing, nada, nothing. No one ever imagined such a thing. No sane person, anyway. Ah! Ah! Along comes this doctor, uh, uh, uh, Semmelweis, Semmelweis. Semmelweis comes along. He's trying to convince people, well, other doctors mainly, that's there's these teeny tiny invisible bad things called germs that get into your body and make you sick. Ah? He's trying to get doctors to wash their hands. What is this guy? Crazy? Teeny, tiny, invisible? What do you call it? Uh-uh, germs? Huh? What? Now, cut to the 20th century. Last week, as a matter of fact, before I got dragged into this hellhole. I go in to order a burger in this fast food joint, and the guy drops it on the floor. Jim, he picks it up, he wipes it off, he hands it to me like it's all OK. "What about the germs?" I say. He says, "I don't believe in germs. Germs is just a plot they made up so they can sell you disinfectants and soaps." Now he's crazy, right? See? Ah! Ah! There's no right, there's no wrong, there's only popular opinion. You... you... you believe in germs, right?

      Edit: +5 hp to anyone that can name the reference without Google.

      Derek- life is so precious, too short. I know you love your Venetian you got from Fred but you have been talking about lasers for EVER. Here it is. You need to try and make it happen. This is the one. Venetian can make it to another enthusiast who will take good care and offset the purchase.

      For me, manual could wait until the auto fails eventually. This is all crazy talk, of course.
