Looks like an excellent example of a lateish model Volvo.
It's a bit sad that some supposed 'Volvo enthusiasts' are so harsh on your friend's car , but I am sure a discerning buyer from SEQ will appreciate the good points you make about it.
Not sure what your on about
Like mark I buy and sell these weekly
They don't sell for what they should because the trans was and is a lemon
The etm is also a lemon
The rest of the car isn't as much of a lemon but parts are hard to find and very exxy compared to s60 or s40
Thus most discerning people avoid them like the plague
Thus the resale is pretty poor at best on them
The car is in excellent condition if not the best I've seen visually for months which should help
I'd vote to take it around to used car places and see what they might offer for it
Asking 7 and taking the first offer above 4 should see it sell quickly
