    Wow. Any idea how many V70R AWD manual cars delivered here?
  • 160 / 9joined Jan 2015
    Good question. I wonder if there was a higher percentage of manuals given it was only Volvo high performance option available for sale at the time from memory. Regardless could it be more than 100?

    Still had C70T5 and T5 *70s in manual but the majority of volvo were auto, look at the price to buy new...
    What you had was well off men buying the wife a luxury car that could go very fast, faster than any other car used for taking the children to school!
    I patiently waited for my 855R manual to come to market second hand, looked at many t5s and Rs, all auto and most ex wife cars. Traded at volvo dealer for new something or other.

    The V70R is basically an AWD 850R, which is awesome. They do seem to hold their value well, too.

    No, but the cutout blank is there on the left, the exhaust loops through lhs muffler to Rhs muffler and out. I have a painted rear bar with both cutouts ready for dual outlet modification, two new nicer and smaller mufflers should be used....

    I really should finish fixing the details on my blak R and put it on eboy!

    This makes me miss my V70 so much. It also had a black interior and was a T5 manual. Why I sold that car I dont know.
  • 43 / 13joined Oct 2017
    is that consider alot of km on the clock?
    its sitting around the 5k mark, is the price reasonable? (8k on gumtree)...
    the 850r go for alot higher i.e. carsales....

  • 2599 / 47joined Oct 2013
    8k is reasonable if this is the type of car you are looking for. Also non electronic throttle is such a huge win.

    Mark thinks it's the one he sold a year or so ago, for a lot less than that...
    Makes the value of mine look good!

    Mine will be up there soon enough!
    With a kool modified auto, not that crap 5spd with its dumb ratios that annoy the feck out of you.
    Put an M66 in it from an S40 or v50 AWD if you want proper manual.

    Is this the same car? Spotted in VIC yesterday and has a rear passenger brake light out.
    Otherwise looks an amazing car and has a 'bloody Volvo driver' sticker on te back.
