Traded in my 04 V70R after owning it since July 2003. I didn't post much, but I learned a lot from reading this forum. I kept everything stock except for swapping the 17" for 18" R wheels when it was new. Recently, I started having problems with the GT transmission. The dealer suggested the updated software, but couldn't guarantee it would solve the intermittent shifting issues. A very costly transmission repair/replacement may have been required. So, after 111K miles I decided it was time to let it go.

Thank you to all who posted very helpful information over the years. Farewell

Not a bad nugget of a car.

Almost as much power as the M5, but without the S85's issues. Of course, without the V10 sound as well...
