      Holy shiit I think you're right. Definitely a SC-816....could be a busted 901 got replaced but that sure does look like the IR receiver from a RTI unit, and the gap where the flip up screen would start. Also what is all that stuff below the glovebox? Looks like a bunch of electronic equipment? Is that where the RTI stuff goes?

      I saw that one at IAA the other day. Something weird is going on there since the VIN isn't valid, and the VIN plate was not original.

      When I enter the VIN into My Carfax it yields an "unknown vehicle". Also, that the vehicle was "exempt" from emissions testing back in 1999.

      Attn Magnus. Have it shipped, and by the time you finish buffing it back into shape and detailing the inside, the virus (if any on it) will be gone.
      Question: Is this a little steep?

      Needs a detail. Never knew black could look so...charcoal.
      Throw some polestar wheels on that and it's a winner.

      Wow, nice car and pretty well loaded, miles are decent for the year. That's Savile grey in low light.

      Price is not far off from where I'd be comfortable.

      Well shiit. Was freaking out when the trans digit was correct but that didn't tell us anything. Could be a DOT or ECE spec VIN. Either way it's a valid VIN.

      My money is on press car. Any hint where it was reg'd in 1999?

      Bored with nothing to do but ration toilet paper? Spend your spring bringing this 850 turbo back to life. Looks like he was going to refresh
      the interior but bailed on the project. I messaged him about what looks like bullet holes in the hood and he told me it was a reflection from
      the light.

      This one may have been posted here already, but one of the cleaner P80ís Iíve seen for a minute. Rare color, Dolby, and SE trim, to boot. Console trim around gear shifter looks to be different color than the rest of the trim, and some piling on the Alcantara on the driver seat, but otherwise looks great.

      Right? Only 125k miles and cheap, too! I bet someone could walk up with $3k cash and drive away. I donít like that the engine bay is armor-allíd... I dislike when dealers do that. The intake manifold looks clean, and thatís always the one thing that those engine cleanings usually canít fix. Cali car. Iím so tempted here.

      I did not know such things existed... this should to go to an enthusiast. I always wondered why our SE's were so different and sort of blah compared to these.

      Also, who buys that and only keeps it a year? Second owner knew what the had with 17 years of ownership

      I had a Canadian market SE - they were much more common there. That's the one car that I regret selling the most.

      I would probably regret getting rid of it too. They were nice and there were a lot of well done up T5 SE's back in the day.

      Didn't know we had American T5 SE's. Thought they all came from Canada ? I would have bought that red Canadian model here in Utah a year ago but it was too far gone.

      Note that it's not badged SE. I didn't realize that there was a carfax before.....looks like a normal order for inventory. I have no idea why a dealer would option that interior in a car for inventory.

      Here's the thing about T5 SE: They are a Canadian market only thing. That interior isn't actually SE specific, but it is essentially nonexistent in North America outside of those Canadian S70 T5 SEs so we have come to call it the SE interior. When I was in the Netherlands, everyone was calling it the "Monza" interior, and it was appearing in everything....T5s, NAs, TDIs, etc. My friend who has the twin to my dad's 97 Frost Green T5 has it in his. Neither were badged SE but both had the "Monza" interior. Took me a while to dig it up but there is actually reference in the Volvo parts catalogs to a "Monza" interior. I haven't actually found any positive confirmation in the Volvo literature of what exactly the "Monza" interior is, but I have no reason to doubt a community that collectively knows FAR more about these cars than we do.

      It's not clear to me what the availability of that interior was in the US market. Given that it's appeared now in this car and one or two other oddballs that didn't have clear ties to VCNA, I am suspicious that it may have been available here, but for some reason was not marketed and nobody knew about it. I believe it was available in Canada since it has appeared in a few 99 T5s not badged SE, and I think there was a GLT that had it, too. Perhaps someone who worked for Volvo during the P80 era would be able to shed some light on what exactly the story is.

      Well I was thinking Volvo exec car until I saw where Smithtown Volvo is. Someone sure was driving it a lot those first few years. Bizarre.
