This is it, 2013 C30 T5M, a car I've always wanted. I'm planning on closing the deal tomorrow, it came in on trade in and I did the used car inspection. Surprisingly little rust for a PA car, but it needs tires and maybe new wheels. Got a reasonable deal to trade in my seldom driven non-turbo S40. It is not an R Design and seems to be pretty basic other than the climate package. I already have a fast manual wagon, and this seems like the perfect second car for me. Some might recognize it, been flying around facebook groups here and there but I think most enthusiasts were ran off by the higher than average list price.
The car has 134k miles but has been dealer maintained for most of it's life, my dealer has serviced it for the past year or so. I'm not too bummed about it being the normal trim other than not having a damn wing, why Volvo didn't make it standard is unbeknownst to me, these cars look wack AF without a rear spoiler to help finish off the roof line. It also needs a nice tint, and maybe some 18 Midirs or Atreus.
Here are my plans:
- Wing ASAP
- Tint (probably 20% same as my Wagon)
- Do a quick muffler repalcement for a little more 5 cylinder joy, not wanting to go for a full catback on this car
Overall I don't plan to mod this car much at all other than maybe cosmetic. P1s have proven to be reliable in our shop for the most part, I'd like to keep this car that way so I can keep building my wagon further.
