As Brad said, BIG aftermarket Volvo supplier. I didn't realize just HOW long they've been around(1963 !), but I bought stuff from them for my then-new 1980 240 GT. Back then, that car only cost $10K, but I would have spent >10% of that every year to keep 'er on the road! Went from the frying pan into the fire by trading the Volvo on an Audi GT('82). Lost my shirt(and then some) after the 'unintended acceleration' fiasco presented by Sixty Minutes...couldn't GIVE away an Audi for years after...never mind trying to insure one!IPD has a kit??? I'll have to check on that. Oh, and, ahem, being new to volvos, I have to ask who is IPD?
With all the other problems I've had with this car, I have abandoned the idea of changing the trans fluid. Rear control arms, front control arms, CV boot, rear view mirror, trunk lid, and a few others. I plan to sell the car in the spring.banjo bud, did you end up deciding how often you'll change the transmission fluid? how muh is the "kit" from ipd and what does it include besides transmission fluid? my commute is 30mikes round trip with lots of stop and go.... i plan to keep my c70 a long time so was leaning towards changing the fluid.
