FYI, the ebay pictures didn't load. I changed the "\" to "/" in the URL and they worked.<P>Good luck with the sale.<P>

I've lowered the price to $15,000 obo. The ONLY reason I'm putting it this low is because I need to get rid of the car to buy the house. info about the car is at <A HREF="http://volvoaddict.turbovolvo.com" TARGET=_blank>http://volvoaddict.turbovolvo.com</A> <P>

I'm not sure why, but is it the price that is keeping people away? I'm curious...if anyone has any feedback, it would be appreciated.<P>Thanks,<P>

Alright guys, I've lowered the price again. Mind you I wouldn't do this if it wasn't for the fact I <I>need</I> to sell it to buy the house. <P>I am now asking $14,500 obo

Nice car. Try listing it on the IPD site if you haven't already. I love Swedespeed, but I think IPD still draws more people regularly to their classifieds.

volvoaddict...I'm not sure if it's the price, but the color may also add to it. The red R's do get snatched by the cops a lot. Either way, If you were selling it at around 11 or 12k (though that's quite low) I'd take it in a heartbeat (provided I get my insurance check now and sold my "restored" integra)<P>Anyhow, good luck selling it. I saw your post on BrickBoard and IPD as well. Someone is bound to take it.

The red looks gorgous! I would be honoured to get a speeding ticket in that car <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/wink.gif"> I'm not sure your R price is unfair either. I think it is only select people who buy cars off the internet considering it is a somewhat new way to do it. Seeing a car in person is usually the easiest way to make a sale. I suggest advertising in your local autotrader, that is what sells cars privately here. For me I would just look at ebay cars for a price reference and continue to find something in my area. I certainly don't speak for everyone and ebay and forums are free advertising space. On the flip side you could potentially get a bidding war on ebay and get a sweet sale price! <P>

Actually I am so desperate that I'd be willing to sell it for $12k. What do you think drPheta? email me offline if you like and we can talk. <P>And Spearzy, I've had it in the autotrader for a couple months now. Jacksonville is just not a Volvo town like CT or WA/OR...<P>none the less the car is now for sale for <B>$12,000 obo</B><P>

Present company excluded off course. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/wink.gif"><BR>Thats strange man, Your car should go like pancakes at the svedenhouse buffet on saturday morning. It truly is a wonderful car from what I can tell. I simply can't explain why it would be tuff to sell in your area, especially taking the normal efforts to do so. You know, I see people every where, even on these forums saying 850R wanted, email them. Your pics look great, If I could I would buy your car but I simply don't have the means right now, young and building a career. Haven't made big cash yet. When your ready to sell your S60R I can pretty much garantee an easy sell to me then!! <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/wink.gif"> <P>

Ok guys, check this car out if your willing to buy the most notorious and future classic volvo ever. The 850 R model high pressure turbo. This guy needs the sale and it is obviously nogotiable due to new mortgage circumstances. The car looks well loved and this is the jelously ride for many. I can already say I am jelous of whoever can take this beauty. But that is small potatoes in comparison to its turbo power, agile handling and stunning profile. Get this guy into another Volvo buy making it easier to sacrifice his current one but into a good home. All shots and vacinations included <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/wink.gif"><P>

Yeah, I'd love to have that car...red is a hot color. But volvoAddict was a bit to late in bringing that price down. Also, I've located a manual R (Woohoo) and the guy said he'd hold it for me till I was able to get the insurance check.<P>volvoAddict, good luck selling your car. I'm absolutely positive it'll sell. And if the guy backs out of my current deal, I'll look into your's if you still got her.<BR>

Yeah, I was told by friends in the volvo business that the prices I was putting on the car were resonable. However, the more I started talking to people that are looking for the car, the more I realized I was pricing it too high. Better late than never...and drPheta, definitely keep me in mind, but if you can get that manual, go for it! I'd love to have the manual instead of the auto, but oh well, that's the states for ya...<P>
