The bad: Failed first smog attempt because of smoking from exhaust. Opinions from two mechanics is that a seal inside the turbo is leaking and turbo needs to be changed or rebuilt (New turbos on Ebay run about $200). There is no smoke when idling but when you first accelerate it smokes then clears up when car is running. Unfortunately smog techs will not let that pass. Milage is high at 370000 but it runs strong and reliable. Been running Mobil1 synthetic oil for 200000 miles. Have vinyl wrap on hood and top but needs redo.

The good: High performance ECU – Motronic Upgrade from IPD. HD front and rear sway bars from IPD. Front strut brace from IPD. Eibach lowering coil springs. Drilled and slotted brake rotors. Sachs front struts and rear dampers. Cold air intake filter from IPD (have stock air box for smog checks). All silicon hoses replaced on engine. Powder coated Factory Volvo Volans 17" wheels with Michelin Primary MXM4 tires. Have another wheel not powder coated. Black Mesh front grill from IPD (Aluminum not plastic, new $200). Front seats are from an 850R (Black).

If you have the know how to do the work needed, this is a great wagon. Or just get it for the upgrade parts which cost me about $5000.
Priced to sell. $1500.00 Pick up only.
