I'm selling my non abused, bone stock 1997 Volvo 850R due to a divorce (I could keep my 850R, but the ex-wife took my V70) so I need a SUV 4x4/Mini Van so I can drive my daughter in comfort. It's a clean title and I have the pink slip on hand. Looking to sell around $3500 OBO
VIN: YV1LS5820V2364628

I bought this R from an elderly gentlemen from Menlo Park back in 2010 who has really taken care of it. I returned the favor by keeping it clean and maintained. It's currently my daily driver, but I have been taking the lightrail for the past year and a half to get to work and really used the R as a weekend car.
The odometer has stopped working at 138xxx and I believe I put about 15k miles since then (I did not want to spend the $300 to replace a $7 odometer gear).
I did a tune up in Jan of 2011 (purchased from FCP Groton OEM kit).
I also have the original radio that I will include.

I have maintained it from two independent Volvo shops in the past two years I have owned her.
All Volvo and Swedish Auto Factory in Santa Clara, CA.
Swedish Auto Factory has the brakes set at 70% and the front tires are about 90% and the rears at about 70% (I purchased them brand new from Wheel Works in 2011)

Recent maintenance done:
2012
New Left wheel bearing
New alternator
New front shocks (OEM)
New CV axle boots
New Fuel Pressure Regulator

Cons:
ABS/Tracs light appears on and off. I read from the forum it's likely loose since I had the front bearing fixed
Sunroof does not work. I don't know what the problem is (motor?)
Headliner in the front is slowly coming off.
Small stain on the passengers side (courtesy of my little girl)
Two small crayola stains in the back seat area (again, courtesy of my little girl)
Trunk struts are no longer working
Passenger side headlight has a crack
Front portion of the dashboard is flexing.
Small oil cooler hose leak (added 08/06/12)
Front engine motor mount needs replacing (added 08/06/12)

I was going to put her for sale next week, but I thought I might not have the time to properly show her to interested buyers. If you have any questions, please feel free to email me and I will do my best to answer them to you (I am not mechanically inclined, so please excuse my lack of knowledge if I can't answer your questions).

I am also throwing in a set of 18x8 Borbet TD's if the R is sold for the asking price. I originally bought these for my wifes V70, but I put on Pegs instead. I never got to finish the wheels so I just ended up boxing them. From my thread on Volvospeed, these wheels are discontinued and from what I gather, somewhat rare (correct me if I am wrong). If I don't sell my R, I will end up keeping her and then finishing the wheels and try to sell them at the Carlsen Volvo Car show in 2013.
