Fs - Nice '98 S70 T5 Auto In Nj - 115k - Only $6450!

<IMG SRC="http://www.geocities.com/xcab_99/DSC00044.JPG" BORDER="0"><p>I hate to do it ... but here goes ...<p>'98 Volvo S70 T5 <p>automatic, leather, power seats/mirrors/windows/locks, heated seats, am/fm/tape/cd, moonroof, ABS, traction control. 115K miles. Asking $6450. Call 732-961-3215 or 732-213-6903. Located in Jackson, NJ. <p>Full professional detail performed 3/14/06. Alignment performed 3/19/06.<p>All maintenance up to date. Common problems already fixed: ABS module rebuilt last year (thanks Viktor); installed upgraded lifetime swaybar endlinks (thanks Slater); recently replaced entire PCV system and air pump valve.<p>All-weather tires (Yokohama) have less than 5k miles on them. New Enkei 16" wheels installed along with those tires, as well as new shocks, struts, and spring mounts. Brake pads still have more than half their life on them. Crossdrilled Brembo rotors up front and Crossdrilled Zimmermans in back. Full tune-up (wires, cap, rotor, spark plugs, and air filter) done last summer. New Bosch battery installed 3 weeks ago. Optix driving lights installed a few months ago. <p>faults: small scrape to left-front bumper and right-side plastic skirt has a chip in it just in front of the rear tire (see pics). Both are very minor. Typical loose leather on the door panels. Otherwise, car looks great. Most folks think its much newer than '98. <p>I think that about covers it. Thanks for looking.<p>more pics here:<br><A HREF="http://www.geocities.com/xcab_99/VolvoForSale.htm" TARGET="_blank">http://www.geocities.com/xcab_99/VolvoForSale.htm</A><br>

Thanks!<p>Yeah, this is REALLY tough to give up. Its just that I have 4 cars, and one has to go. The 2 we are making payments on can't since they are fairly new and our primary transportation. The 3rd is my now-classic Alfa and has too much sentimental value ... so I'm forced to sell my volvo. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/frown.gif" BORDER="0"><p>Aside from the aforementioned Alfa, I have owned the Volvo for longer than I've ever owned any other car. And, even including the Alfa, I have never driven a vehicle for ANYWHERE near the number of miles I've driven this car.... And I STILL enjoy driving it!

OK. Geocities sucks, so I've reposted my pictures into a shutterfly account. Hope this works better for folks:<p><A HREF="http://share.shutterfly.com/action/welcome?sid=8AbMWjFm2bs2Ig" TARGET="_blank">http://share.shutterfly.com/ac...bs2Ig</A><br><BR><BR>

Nice...much better! What's the OPTX oval thingy on your dash switch area? Also any mods besides Slater's endlinks, and cross-drilled rotors, or is it otherwise stock?

the switch is for the Optix driving lights.<p>Actually, one thing I left out is the front stainless brake lines from IPD. I put those on a few years ago. So only mods are rotors, front brake lines, Slater's HD swaybar endlinks, and driving lights (and aftermarket wheels). Otherwise, its a nice stock clean slate for you to work off of. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0">

I've recommended your car to a guy who posted over on the '98-'00 70 series forum: <A HREF="http://forums.swedespeed.com/zeromodify?cmd=editpost&id=516418" TARGET="_blank">http://forums.swedespeed.com/z...16418</A><br>Although I would personally be interested in your car if my son was 16, I still have a few years until that happens, so I'll pass for now. Good luck with your sale. You are right...a great base to work off of. IPD ECU and swaybars would make this car very very sweet and we're not talking putting tons of money into it to do this. In fact, with the low miles and reasonable sale price you could do these upgrades and still get things below the cost of most T5's being sold. The scratch removal and the broken piece under the ffront door shouldn't be much of an issue (cheap to repair), though the doors pieces sagging is another issue...most are dealing with....but they can be reupulstered.

AHH! Why can't you live in Colorado? I've been looking for something like this for months! Mine's the same color, year, and even mileage, but yours is so much faster...<p>Oh well.

d'oh! posted this over in vspeed last night, but forgot to copy here. anyway ....<p>I'm shocked this hasn't sold yet. hell, i haven't even had any real bites on it. Only one test drive and it was by someone who didn't have enough money to buy it. Loser.<p>So, anyway ... here it is ... another shot on craigslist in the 13th hour before it goes on ebay later this afternoon.<p><A HREF="http://newjersey.craigslist.org/car/155316720.html" TARGET="_blank">http://newjersey.craigslist.org/car/155316720.html</A>

Re: (JRL)

well, let's see ... i'm not usually one to quote books ... but<p>edmunds private party TMV = $6200<br>KBB private party = $6400<br>NADA average retail = $8000<p>Honestly, the great condition of everything else and all of the recent maintenance and repairs should realistically outweigh the $300 damage (and then some). But, putting all of that aside, seems to me my asking price is still quite reasonable, and my taking price would be a downright steal.

Re: (Qbrozen)

Hint for Ebay, you should start the ad at $500 or less<br>When someone starts an ad at about what they want to sell it for no one bids, they know the drill.<br>I used to do that until I learned

Re: (JRL)

I also know many people don't bid when there is a reserve.<p>I'm not an ebay newb by any means. I've sold LOTS of stuff on there. <p>Besides, when it comes to cars, Ebay isn't about selling, its about advertising. Nationwide 10-day full-color ad, on a site visited by millions, for less than $50. You can't beat that.
