      New V50 AWD T5 owner

      Hi to all, I've been lurking for one for long time. After debating if a 2008-2010 would be better, ive found a nice 2006 T5 AWD for about 4200$CAN (3300US$) full equipped :

      - AT
      - AWD
      - T5
      - 184000km on counter (that's 114k miles)
      - new Haldex pump
      - new alt
      - new radiator
      - 162000km timing belt updated
      - no rust, been treated
      - heated cloth seats (my choice, no leather seats at -30 in winter....)
      - 17in wheels with new summer and winter tires
      - OEM rack with cross rails
      - cargo cover and Volvo rubber mats
      - no tears, no fading liners

      Here it is!



      Now, I am in for a rear trunk lip spoiler!!!

      Will have some questions. Thanks for helping!

      When you say "in for", are you looking for one? I have an extra spoiler and dynamic trim for the rear bumper if you're interested

      Hi Muppet, I mean am ready to buy. If this is the R spoiler on the top of the trunk lip, what's your price? And what is dynamic trim? Thanks!

      Nice looking car! I wish mine had no rust haha.

      I'm not sure if you are in Canada (listing km first...) I ended up getting the spoiler already paint matched from volvo of Toronto. I think it was a bit over $200. If you can get a cheaper one from someone here that is even better.

      PMd you. Dynamic trim is the body-colored ground effects that was offered before R-design was a thing:Attachment 66469

      Congratulations on the V50. I'm looking to buy one myself since my greyhounds are tired of being crowded in the back of my Passat sedan.

      I am wondering if you wouldn't mind helping me out with getting the measurement of the distance from the roof to the cargo bay floor? I would get it myself, but there are no V50s around me for 300 miles. I know the measurement of the hatch opening but not the interior height of the cargo bay.

      Many thanks if you wouldn't mind. 😎

      Very nice! Looks like a clean car, with my favourite P1 wheels (I swapped that style wheel from my S40 to V50 before I sold the S40).

      @ Nathan

      The trunk opening is roughly 26 inches from base floor to inside edge of trunk lines. Then, inside is roughly 28 inches floor to liner. Hope that helps.
