SOLD!!! - 2001 Volvo V70 T5M w/ 5-speed manual transmission

For sale is my 2001 Volvo V70 T5M w/ 5-speed manual transmission (M56). The car has 132k on the clock and is in excellent condition. The engine runs great and the gearbox shifts smoothly in all gears. This car was previously a single family car with regular maintenance before I bought it approximately 3 years ago. This car has been my daily driver since then without an issue outside of regular maintenance. We also recently took the car across the country to Wisconsin without a hitch. The car has always been adult owned (non-smoking) and was driven conservatively. In addition, all work I have done on the car has been to improve its handling and feel, with only a few conservative upgrades. Here are some details on the car:

Car Highlights:
- T5 "High Pressure" turbo 5 cylinder engine, producing about 250hp
- M56 5-speed transmission - Very rare option in the US.
- All leather interior in great condition w/ dual front heated seats. No rips in seats or door cards, no cracks in dash, very clean headliner.
- Exterior is in great condition and is straight with no dents.
- Clean title in my name with no accidents.
- 17x7.5" "Amalthea" multi-spoke alloy wheels
- Factory rear spoiler/wing
- Factory tow hitch and integrated wiring harness
- Automatic dual climate control with working AC.
- Rear cargo cover - pulls out to cover items in the rear cargo area
- Electric glass sunroof
- Electronic stability/traction control and ABS
- Front/rear fog lights.

- Work outside routine maintenance was done at M&W automotive, a great local Volvo shop. Nearly all the parts were sourced at IPD.
- Regular oil changes with Mobil One full synthetic high mileage oil and Mann (OEM) filters.
- Recent spark plug (Bosch copper plugs) and air filter change.
- 105k Service done at around 100k miles at M&W, included: fuel filter, cabin air filter, timing belt and tensioner, serpentine belt and tensioner, water pump
- Major suspension overhaul with new shocks all around (Bilstein HDs with lifetime warranty), new control arms, new strut mounts, new tire rods, and new sway bar end links.
- New front brake rotors
- New tires (Goodyear ComforTred, 80k mile warranty) with only about 1 year / 10k miles on them. Rotated every 5k at Goodyear dealer.
- Alternator and Battery replaced by previous owner.

- Suspension was upgraded to Bilstein HDs shocks for a sportier ride. These shocks have a lifetime warranty and are very high quality, much improved over the relatively soft OEM shocks.
- Suspension also upgraded with thicker IPD sway bars (front installed, rear included but not installed). Cornering is now very flat and the car is more composed on the road
- Boost controller replaced with IPD's HD boost controller. This has provided better boost control and throttle response.
- Replaced failing OEM stereo with a Jensen VM9324 Touchscreen HD radio, installed using a Volvo OEM adapter plate. This install looks nearly stock with the adapter plate and the radio gives has both HD radio and bluetooth capabilities.

Extras included:
- OEM Volvo Load bars: easily attach to the roof channels to handle a couple hundred pounds of equipment. We have also used them successfully to mount bike racks as well (not included).
- IPD rear sway bar which I haven't had a chance to install yet.

Asking $7500 OBO, given the excellent condition, new tires/radio, and rare T5/M56 combination. Please give me a PM if you are interested. The car is in Sherwood, OR outside of Portland. Thanks for looking!
