Hey guys, just joined the forum, My name is Tino, And I just recently bought my 1st Volvo, a 2001 S60 T5 5spd.

I've always been a fan of these cars, but never really pursued getting one. But when I found this car I had to have it.
While it is high mileage (186k) I have no worries with the car at all. It runs like a 100k car and all that is needed mechanically is T-Belt/Water Pump, and ETM. Normal stuff for these.

I am also an auto tech for 10 years now, working with all makes and models. I've worked for every type of shop from Used car dealers, to Transmission shops, and Performance/Dyno shops. I'm no stranger to the S60s either having worked on a bunch of them.

Some of my previous modified vehicles include::
91 Escort GT- Mazda 1.8 DOHC w/JDM Mazda Familia GTX BPT swapped 200whp/223wtq 2300lbs
91 Escort GT-Mazda 1.8 DOHC(yes another one) Greddy 18G Turbo, Megasquirt, 296whp/312wtq/2300lbs
2 Mazda MX6s (94&95)- both with bolt ons, fun little cars. Nothing like 8000RPM from a V6
94 Mazda Protege- Full JDM Familia conversion... Bumpers,lights F/R,interior,Uber Rare Mazdaspeed Parts
93 Talon TSI AWD- BUILTT Engine (Wiseco Pistons/Carillo Rods/Crower Cams,Springs,Retainers etc-342awhp)

And there have been a few more inbetween lol

So the car::
01 S60 T5 M SR
426 Silver Metallic
Black Leather interior with ZERO rips/tears
5 spd
186k
17" Tethys wheels
235/45/17 Goodyear ResponsEdge (Carbon Fiber re-enforced sidewalls)
All stock other than an aftermarket boost gauge.

Very clean car, purchased from the original owner, even have the original window sticker.

I like my C30 alot, but I wish I had the space for a S60R as well.
