I have owned this car for a little over 3 years and have loved it but now I am driving further for work and I need something with a little better gas mileage (20 city 26 highway). I bought this car from California and before that the previous owner lived in Florida so it is extremely clean it has only seen 2 winters. There is a clean carfax, no accidents or incidents of any kind and it only has 63,000 miles on it. This car is very fun to drive, it has 300 horsepower and a 6 speed manual transmission, it is very quick but also very controllable with the adjustable suspension, AWD and Brembo brakes. It is very good in the winter, it has stability control, adaptive AWD and of course traction control and ABS, with good tires you wont even know there's snow on the ground. This car handles like it is on rails from the adjustable sport suspension, it has 3 settings, in comfort it has a very smooth ride, sport is in the middle and advanced is all out cornering machine. Huge Brembo brakes makes it stop on a dime. Of course it is a Volvo so it is very safe and reliable, I haven't had any major problems in the time I have owned the car. I have put a lot of work and extras in the car and have taken exceptional care of it, as you can see below, it was my plan to never sell it. The exterior is Black Sapphire Pearl but I put a coating called PlastiDip over it to protect and give it a different look, that is why the car looks satin black, this coating just peels right off like a vinyl wrap and the paint below is freshly waxed and in great condition. Any Questions email me, text or call 440.749.0121.

Any reason you didn't plastidip the interior, or the engine bay or perhaps the house?

- seriously I think you went a bit overboard.
Yes, I didnt do the interior because it would not hold up on the seats and I am a bit fond of the Orange. I didnt do the engine bay because that would involve me taking the engine and various other parts out of the car to do a proper job. The house is infact plasti dipped and completely water and windproof.

Was this rattle can or did you use a spray gun? From the picts, the finish looks smooth.

I thinned bulk plastidip and sprayed using a gun. With rattle cans the finish wouldnt be uniform or smooth.

If you want it to sell quicker I'd advise you to remove the plasti dip eyebrows on the headlights, remove the plasti dip on the tail lights and fog lights, remove the roof fins, clean up the wiring in the engine bay, and put the cover back on the air intake box. It has the potential to be a great looking car with a couple hours of clean up. No offense just my opinion.

Yeah I would actually be quite interested in the car if the above mentioned was done. Let me know if you're willing to do this. PM would work perfect.

Be interested. It's PlatiDip so it would probably only take 15 minutes to clean everything you mentioned.
