Hey everyone, im going to look at and hopefully purchase a replacement for my old 850 t5{rip} on friday. Its a 99 s70 t5 with 92k original miles, no rust or rot, clean title, no dash lights, runs and drives fantastic according to the seller. the suspension was replaced all around and to be honest its gorgeous and im smitten from sight. ive got a bias because of losing my 850, but what should i look for when i got to check it out? what the ture litmus test on its quality. its listed at 3200, im going to try to get him to 2700 as a fair price for both parties is that a fair counter offer barring it having any flaws?
