Hi all,

With my wife wanting to start our family soon I know that my C30 will have to be going in the near future so I wanted to see if there was any interest in it here before I looked to trade it in or sell it locally. I'm going to get some pics up today but its a 2012 T5 Auto with ~83k milies on it. I have had it since 2016 and there has been no mechanical issues with it. I've taken it in to my local Volvo dealer's service dept on the recommended schedule since I had it. It was bought new from them and I am the second owner so I could probably get a service history pretty easily. The service manager dealership said it was mechanically in fantastic condition when I last took it in a few months ago so take that for what its worth. The only repair I've had to do on it is the coolant expansion tank cracked and I replaced it.
As far as modifications on it I have:

Polestar Tune
Mototec Intake
Jetex Catback Exhaust
Eibach Springs
Koni STR.T Shocks/Struts
Elevate Rear Sway Bar

Tires are Continental Extremecontact Sport with about 15k miles on them

I do still have all the stock suspension parts and that would be included as well as a set of OEM rear lowering springs from Volvo.

As far as price goes just PM me if you're interested but I am thinking somewhere in the 9k USD range. And I am in Birmingham, AL but i'd be willing to meet someone a little further outside the south east if there was interest.

For cosmetic issues there are a few scratches in the clear coat but nothing major, I do have the Volvo OEM touch up paint. The left rear reflector on the bumper is cracked but I may go ahead and order another one and install. In the interior the only real issue is that I have never be able to open the glove box. The lock was broken when I bought the car.

Unfortunately cannot send you a PM, but I may be looking to move to a C30 since my S60 is currently declared a total loss. Can you PM me? Cheers!

Probably. I think he's going to resolve to spend more than a paltry 5K, but this thread didn't have a price that I saw easily (I see it now - LOL - he's gonna have to pony up), so I wasn't sure what the two might agree to.
Told him they're rare and he's going to have to travel. At least it's doable in a weekend drive here on the east coast!
Nice little ride. OP will miss it.
They may be a little bit far apart on price...

I'm still considering this one myself if the price comes down a bit. Basically in the market for a C30, S60/V60 T6 R-D Platinum or P* since mine was totalled.

Sucks. Must be a thing. Lots of Volvo’s have bitten it recently and mine was nearly one of them. Hope you’re ok and find a replacement soon.

I'm all good but indeed a strangely high amount of them seem to be disappearing. Hopefully we find something to take our fallen's respective places soon indeed!

Don't know about you, but often that also means good used parts (and sometimes performance upgrades at cut-rate in your local pick n pull... keep a lookout!

I know! The insurance paid out for some of my upgrades... but I'll be on the lookout to see if I can buy them back at some point haha
