215-962-nine five seven six
Coraopolis, PA 15108

2004 S60R
Black Sapphire
Manual Trans - shifts perfectly, no bad synchros

Every single thing works. There are no mechanical or interior issues whatsoever.
Interior 8/10 non-smoker
Mechanical 9/10
Exterior 5/10 Way too many dings from soccer moms at the super market. Also front bumper is cracked which you'll see in the photo. That costs $900 from Volvo pre-painted.
Clutch doesn't slip at all.
Boost gauge shows stock boost but I can remove it if you want. The old IPD mount sucks.

Picked the car up CPO in Sept. 2009 with 60,001 mi and I drove this car 60,000 trouble free miles since. Obviously mostly highway miles cruising on the turnpike between Pittsburgh and Philadelphia.

All power and heated seats
6 disc cd changer. No blown speakers.
Keyless entry (I have both keys)
All tires less than 1 year old (They're not identical due to 2 punctures over the past year)

In the past year my mechanic did:
Timing/accessory belt and water pump
tie rod ends
4 wheel alignment
All 5 ignition coils (1 went bad)
Rear rotors, pads, and parking shoes and front pads
IPD turbo control valve
Coolant was flushed
Oil changes every 3000mi

Let me know if you have any questions. This is a spectacular car I'm letting go for $8000 due to the nose and door scrapes. Dealerships are offering me $6500 so I think this is a fair price.
I do still owe money on the car, I don't have the title in hand. The process of buying the car is identical except you'll need 2 checks with you; 1 check in the amount of the payoff and one check for the additional value to me. You can still drive away that day from the notary. All titles in PA are handled electronically by the DMV as of this year so it is hassle free.

I would highly recommend spending a couple of $$ for a full detail, then posting new pics.

...and you are incorrect
The bank must be paid off first, title signed off, handed to you and THEN you can bring the title in to a tag place.
Penn Dot CANNOT transfer a title they don't have in hand plus with a lien on it

JRL, that is not what my bank explained to me even though we all know this is how things have always been done. They said that PENNDOT has all of the titles in electronic form as well as the paper copy as of this year (some new law, my bank does not have it!) and a transfer can be done at a notary same day.

For an extra $400 I'll throw in the Glock 26!

FYI it is on eBay and attracting a good amount of attention but I'll end it early for a Swedespeeder.
