855 = good value
that mileage = okay value to anyone who knows Volvos
manual = rare and boosts value, but not original, so the buyer would need to trust whoever did the swap.
But any performance parts... I add up the resale value of the performance parts and deduct that from the value of the car. You'll never get mods money back. But to the right buyer, it could be worth it.

Sounds like the car is perfect mechanically and still decent cosmetically considering it's age.

I would probably list it for $4k and be willing to come down a bit from there.
Starting to see T5 P1s with M66 sell for as low as $5k. So unless the potential buyer is really set on owning a P80, there are newer manual Volvo options for not much more.

Thank you for your input! Always better to start higher lol Thanks! If i get enough for it I will include the pegs and a spare b5234t from a 96 850 r that has 186 k that had just had the head machined with new head gasket valve seals, water pump timing belt tensioners etc done to it.

Is that your C30 in the garage?

I'd try selling it with the Pegs. Really adds to the car in my opinion, and Pegs are so common... Kind of hard to resell Pegs for a decent price.

I plan to list our 850 for $3k in the coming months, as is. But I'll probably come down and take Pegs off depending on the buyer.

I will probably send the pegs with the car if i get enough otherwise i wanna keep them for the p1 v70 i have but will probably go with car and yes that's my 2009 c30 t5 which is parked for winter only has 16k on it waiting till its paid off to mod it. Another reason i wanna sell the 855 is i want to get into a p2 R

I am not but will check it out. The only thing i don't like about the c30 and my p1 v70 and p2's are the fly by wire throttle they can be hard to judge it sometimes even on the c30 lol

P1 V70? Do you mean P2? P1s are only the S40, V50, C30, and later year C70s.

The stock P1s definitely have a weird throttle delay. Any tune, even P*, will get rid of that. No dead space and much more predictable.

P* = Polestar
It's not the most powerful tune, Shark and Elevate have the best tunes for building up C30s. But if you plan on keeping things mostly, stock, it's hard to go wrong with Polestar. Especially since it keeps the warranty.

Any tune will definitely wake that car up for how it should be though. If you did go with an Elevate or Shark tune, they are handheld tuners that allow you flash back to stock tune whenever you want. So you can always revert to stock before going into the dealer and they'll never know about it. Nice if you start modding but still have the factory warranty that you don't want to void.

It may just be how we slang things on C30Crew... Seeing this:


Much easier/lazier just to say P*

First on my list! Followed by that guy in Dahlonega.

Though, depending on the wheels that come on the next C30, I may put the Pegs on it... 17x8 wrapped in 255s would be ideal.
