Hi

I have been lurking around here for some time gathering information, tips, tricks and so on...

Two weeks ago i bought a 2005 V70 R AWD!

Just put the (17") winter tires on!




"Key to happines"


It`s a 2005 fully loaded with sunroof, rti, phone, atacama, trailer hitch, electric passenger seat, hu-850, atacama interior and the list goes on..

It has 190.000km on it (~120.000miles?).

It`s former representative veichle for Volvo Cars Norway and thats why it`s fully loaded.

This is from a car show here in Norway with my very car exhibited at the Volvo Cars Norway show booth. And I was there :)



This is the "Volvo Car Club Norway" that I am a member of.

Very nice car.
Sent from my rotor-dial phone with the help of Cortana.
Thank you!

Once I get home from work in a week or so, I plan on doing a lot of maintainance and detailing. Checking the overall condition of the car.

I just had it for a couple of days before I traveled to work.

Silver with Atacama, nice!!

I'm so jealous of those lights and that V70R front plate is awesome. I've always wanted one of those.

Agreed! ;) I don`t have that fornt plate bru I would love to get it reproduced or something and use it for car show`s and so on! Any ideas on where to get a plate made!?

Mine too! Thanks! :) Electric silver is maybe even better but as far as I know there where no one with that combo sold new here in Norway.

Kan du norsk!? :D Takk!

VCCN is a fairly new Volvo club here in Norway but it`s growing in members and activity! The highlight of the year is the trackday and meet at the Norwegian track "Rudskogen"!

This is me driving there in july with my 1993 240 Turbo:
