Hey...sorry to see how you got flamed on BB. So, that's why I didn't want to jump in and say anything about the KBB value.<BR>I don't know man...even though KBB is not always the most accurate one, but the value I got wasn't even close to $16K. Now I know these cars still run very well even at high miles...but any bargain buyers would just get you on the mileage issue.<P>One of the BB member did have a good point, if you did not post the ad on the classified <BR>section, they can have some fun with you like that.<P>Well, if you seriously have tough time selling the car, let me know....but with $18K, you would need lots luck.<P>

I would have done that if I had known flamers were going to attack.<P>And I pretty much am trying to just get the word out to as many people as possible about my car, so all the forums were open targets for me. It's the first week that we've had it for sale, I just wanted to give Volvo enthusiasts the first shot at a cheaper (well, cheaper than any others out there) T5 <B>and with the 5 speed</B>. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif"><P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR><B>Well, if you seriously have tough time selling the car, let me know....but with $18K, you would need lots luck.</B><HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P>Thanks man, again, $18k was just a starting point, after all, that IS lower than the retail price. Has the retail pricing of cars become a fairy tale now? It wouldn't suprise me I guess.<P>I am open to <B><I>all</I></B> serious offers, but I'm not quite desperate yet as to accept trade in just yet.<P>Thanks for your words though man, I'm glad you posted, I was beginning to think I had accidently signed the ad "call osama bin..." instead of my email.<P>If there was a way just to delete my original post over there it would probably be best.<P>Please email me if you have a chance, I was going to email you but your address doesn't show up.<P>

<BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>Originally posted by jetstream:<BR><B>What's the mileage?<BR>Daniel (Kennesaw, Ga.)</B><HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P>Hey Daniel, 139k as of today, and I can assure you those are WELL MAINTAINED highway miles. The the car has been serviced almost monthly by the Volvo dealership. ALL the recommended services pretty much every 10k was a major service. Even got all the little stuff was done at the dealer - like headlights, brakes, and stuff like that that ends up costing you a fortune to get done at the dealer.<P>Let me know if you would like any pictures, thanks!
