Re: couple of questions (phuz)

First off I dont know how you dad only put 16,000 miles on a 6 year old vehicle pretty amazing (the average is 75,000).<p>Trade in value would be: $12,525 if it was in excellent condition.<br>Private Party resale would be: $14,925 if it was in excellent condition.<p><br>Your 16 years old, I doubt you will like this car and there are no mods for it....sell it, buy a used s60. You will have more fun, I myself perfer the luxury and size of an s80 but if I had the chance/money I would be at the dealer buying an R.<p>anyways thats what I would do If you wish to have a safe, sporty, car which you could mod. <br> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0">

I have never met someone close to my age <i>(ALL my friends are at your age Phuz and only one of them likes the 80 over a 60; and BTW 4 years in a few weeks lol) </i> But if I had a choice I would get an R. The thing is this kid seems like he wants to do a lot of mods for the s80 and it cannot happen....he would have more fun modding an s60 due to its various tuners and available options.<p>If you do go for an s60, make sure its a T5

IPD still carries a lot of upgrades, and i used to like these cars a lot. this would just be for car racing. turbobricks.com is really into these cars so there is a lot of good enthusiast support. i would just love to have one with RWD big wheels, and a nice rake to it. with a gawd awfully loud paint job of course <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>have fun!<br>Sky<br>

Re: (JRL)

Keep the S80, I had a 2000 T6 as my first car when I was 17, I bought another as my second as well. I LOVE Volvos <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"> ...hang onto the S80 esp. with 16Kmi on it! Theres absolutely no mods to speak of but who cares, its not a rice-burner, it doesnt need them.

Re: (evoldarnoc)

Came late to the party<p>But both of my daughters 18 and 21 are fighting about who's getting my 2000 S80 2.9 with 120K miles on it next year, when I am getting a new 2008 S80,<p>They both drive it with love on every opportunity.
