Only considering selling it as I've got my eye on a couple other specific Volvos at the moment. I'm only willing to let it go if it works out but I wanted to get feelers out there to see if anyone is after an S70 like this one.

Quick run down --

135,XXX miles on the car
Factory manual trans
IPD/MTE ecu tune
IPD turbo back sport exhaust
Euro Sport Tuning RIP kit
SNABB turbo inlet hose
Mishimoto silicone radiator hoses
DO88 silicone expansion tank hoses

Refinished Volans -- painted professionally with PPG paint
Kuhmo tires with less than 5K miles on them
IPD sway bars
IPD lowering springs
IPD HD upper spring seats

V70R front bumper
E-code glass headlights
Amber side marker lights
XC eggcrate front grille

V70R door panels
IPD aluminum gauge trim rings
3 gauge A-pillar pod with RalliTEK boost gauge and RalliTEK oil pressure gauge
Full LED conversion on the interior -- white/red including all switches, climate control, etc.
Sherwood Innovations genuine carbon fiber center console dash kit
Redline Goods leather shift boot and ebrake boot
OEM Volvo leather wrapped shift knob
Custom made iPod Touch cradle with 32g iPod touch included with car
Kenwood double DIN head unit
Alpine speakers in the rear doors (matching Alpine components for the front doors/dash included but not installed yet)

Did the timing belt less than 10K miles ago
Did the heater core a couple thousand miles ago
I have all the previous records from the previous owner as well going back to 83K miles in 2005.

Car needs nothing mechanically. It's fast, handles well, clean title, etc. Couple small dings but this car is about as clean as you're gonna find for a '98. This is 1 of only 331 S70 T5 manual trans cars imported to the States. I looked for months before I found the right one (this one).

Serious inquiries at asking price only please ;) Below are some pics -- email me at [email protected] for further info or for more detailed info or pics.

Sure, if you pay gas to get there and plane ticket home :) I have some friends in Philly -- I could use it as an excuse to visit them.

Thanks -- which trim do you mean? I assume the center console? That is a genuine carbon fiber dash trim kit from Sherwood Innovations. Well, part of a complete kit anyway. I special ordered just the center pieces as I didn't want all the vent trim and glovebox trim and such.

Ha -- should be good as new after washing the bug collection off the front of it from the journey!

Last time I drove to Seattle (straight, 65mph highway) it did 30mpg. That's the best it's done. Typically does high 20s on the freeway. So more likely a touch less than $500 in gas. By that point and with a return plane ticket you're rivaling cost to ship it by transport company I think.

Truly a gorgeous car. Very reasonable price considering condition and what you'd be getting. GLWS.

Thanks man. I think it is a very fair price for the car as well considering the condition and the upgrades. To name a few -- ECU tune $600, Exhaust $995, Sway bars $400, Springs $250, RIP kit $400, R bumper $400, Wheels + tires $1000, etc.
