Re: (Schweder)

Friggen site's been down all day. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0"> <br>Picked up the car today. As represented. A REAL NICE R! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <br>Very quiet, no noises, 1 speaker may be a bit so so. Really couldn't tell much about the suspension as it's riding on snows. (Titans all bagged up)<br>The interior is near perfect. 3 seats look as if they never were sat in and the drivers seat is VERY VERY good.<br>All body panels perfect (except the rear bumper which the owner said needed repainting) and the hood which has a couple of normal Volvo chips, etc.<br>Will get it in for a service in a couple of days and give it a real good going over and check up, have to state inspect it anyway<br>Oh and the seats are to die for <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> (comfort)

Re: (JRL)

Ah...cool. I ended up going to Pegs on my 850R. Still have the Volans, but a couple are out of round from potholes...they aren't very strong wheels. I agree with you on the Volans as I've never really cared for them (and I've had this car since new!).
