I thought I'd be keeping her for years to come, but I fell in love with a C70 T5m, and so I'm selling my V70 T5m.

So much has been done to make this the most reliable a Volvo can be, including full stage 0 and much more! I have a stack of records from previous owner and tons of stuff done by local Volvo specialists this year. As you can see I put thousands of $$$ into the car and while I'm losing a lot I love the C70 so this has to go.

It has V70R seats that are very nice, charcoal interior, trip computer, fog lights, etc. Comes with a set of snow tires too since the Conti's are summer only. Has a factory hatch spoiler, rare option and they still sell for $150 sometimes.

Also installed an 850R 200W factory amplifier to the radio which really sounds awesome.

Oh yeah, and OEM Thule roof racks too!

New parts and labor THIS year 5k miles ago or less:
- OEM R Clutch kit and RMS done by Volvo shop
- Full tune up all OEM plugs, wires, cap, rotor, filter
- Timing belt, water pump, idler, and tensioner
- Full OEM PCV system
- Rebuilt 16T stock turbo
- Silicone intercooler boost hoses
- New spark plug seals and cam seals
- Snabb intake manifold spacer
- New MAF sensor
- All vacuum lines replaced
- Oil changed 500 miles ago FULL SYNTHETIC
- NEW Continental W rated 17" Summer tires on OEM 17" wheels

Other recent work:
- ECT sensor 2009
- BARO sensor 2009
- Ignition switch 2010
- Heater core 2010
- Front motor mount 2010
- Radiator hoses 2010
- Both sway links 2009
- New radiator and condenser 2010
- Full brake job last year

If you want a V70 T5m, heres your chance, they only made about 150 of them and this one is probably the only with R suede seats! Has 217,000 miles on it but runs perfectly and for a Volvo with this good maintenance is nothing.

My name is Bob, I'm in Trumbull, CT and I'm asking $5500 OBO for the car.

Call/text 201-245-9961 or email nicksonbob{AT}gmail{DOT}com and thanks for looking!

anymore pics? this the one for sale a few months back for $3k right? Has it been wrecked...fender/door looks a little off in the one picture. Also is the rear suspension bent, look like the wheel has a lot of negative camber?

I love that interior and the T5M combo, but no AWD to worry about... and was thinking about making the trip the first time this one got listed

I can send you as many pics as you'd like, email me at the address listed at the bottom of my post (or text), right before the pics I posted up.

Never wrecked, I have a clean Experian Autocheck (like carfax but not $50 lol) I printed like a month ago. The fender and door don't look off to me... Definitely original paint on both. And the rear suspension is fine afaik, I had a FWD wagon before this with the same wheels and tire size and it looked the same, probably just the angle of the pic?

It's a great driving car, all the most important stuff was done to it, and done by guys I trust more than anyone else. Chris, the guy I bought it from poured HOURS of work and tons of $$ into making this full stage zero and more, not to mention the stack of previous records he gave me. Then, since it slipped once on the test drive, I immediately had an all OEM R clutch, RMS, etc installed by a specialist shop who'd already worked on this car for years.

So yeah, email (or text) me and we can talk more. I can go on for hours about it, haha you'll be able to tell how much I love her.

This car, I fully went through to make my daily driver. Stage 0 to the max, rebuilt 16t, plugs, wires, cap, rotor, cam sensor, maf, newer IAC, Gates timing belt, water pump, timing accesories, i put on a snabb intake mani spacer, new pcv. re-sealed the cam cover, new cam seals. Then went ahead and did a full r interior. I know im forgetting stuff as my wallet says i spent over 1k just to stage 0 the car.. When i bought the car both autocheck and carfax were clean. Oh ps, this car did come with Fogs, they just need to be installed.

I think that's VERY reasonable for this car. GLWS.

Thanks guys! I agree wholeheartedly!

Not to mention I put over $500 into Continental summer tires only 5k miles ago, plus the amp, the R seats, and the wheels are like 500. Theres an easy $3k put into the car THIS year and I'm only asking 5k! Needless to say the new owner will be getting a completed car, a turn key drivers car, set to go for 50-100k miles with no issues whatsoever.
