2002 V70 T5 Oem+ (feeler)

I'm just seeing if there interest in my wagon or if its just worth keeping it; the car is dead reliable and fantastic but i just need back in a manual trans. Debating finding a M56H or M66W to swap in or easier to sell and grab another manual wagon(likely a 6spd E90 touring or A4 avant b/c of manual availability). Shoot me a PM if you're interested or have questions.

The car has been ours since 2005 and 85k km(53mi), as well as being maintained by us.(Have maintenance records from us + all dealer ones prior). It was a family daily driver for many years with highway mileage to work/hockey tournaments/mountain bike races. The last few years has been used as a spare or winter vehicle to spare my BMW the snow. Its been a tank; has started up every single time and never left us stranded(actually not even a hiccup)

Car is located in Ontario, Canada. I'm be looking to get something around the $4500(usd) mark for the car.
I also have no problem working with a buyer for a far with pictures or travel. that being said I only have this opportunity until snow tires are needed and I have no other choice but to drive the wagon/no time to source another vehicle.

Nice Sled Nielv. Looks like you have done a great job taking care of it and making updateds. Reminds me of my 2002 V70 T5M. Glück with selling it. Much life still in this one.
