Since I'm new to the V70R of this generation I'd thought a project thread or something like would be a thing to do. I've only had this car for a week now and I'm in love, a Flash Green MY04 with beige soft leather and a space ball. A high mileage car but well maintained and the previous owner took well care of it and also took it to couple of Volvo meets.

A lot of parts are fairly new or fixed, but theres is also some issues. Since this is the new daily, at least thats the ambition, the fixings will have to be done when possible and so on. The main positives are: it has all four Four C struts swapped out in the last five years, the clutch, the exhaust with cat and the drive shaft are just a couple of years old. The exhaust that were put on is a Simons 3" from the cat, it sounds pretty nice but not too loud. Cambelt and waterpump was done just a month ago. It has Brembo slotted discs all around, Powerflex bushing in the engine mount wand the strut brace has some parts from IPD. Powerflex bushings in the rear control arms aswell.

So, I bought it for a fair price and the things I al ready know needs to be done: both the VVT:s... yay. And the crank case ventilation, no surprise there either. New brake pads in the front. And I've changed the oil and filter already. So, lets se how this trip goes.

Congrats! That’s a gorgeous R - in my dream spec too! Can’t wait to see what you do with it.

Thanks guys! :) I really love the spec and the color, just as seen on the first press release driving photos and as soon as I test drove it was a done deal pretty much.

Right now the first thing is to fix the winter wheels, 17" Pegasus with Goodyear, having them painted today. Havent decided on the color yet, 936 bright silver or 932 anthracit grey.

So, I went with 714 Osmium Grey, for some reason our Glasurit system couldent find the recipe for 932 so I went for this instead, with a semi gloss clear coat. Still a bit shiny in the picture. It might not be a factory color but I think it's going to be a good look for the winter season.

They should look great! I honestly really like how bright silver looks on Flash, but I’d reserve that for the summer.
