Hello, <P>I am new to this board. I am interested in purchasing a Volvo V70 T5 in the future (7-8 months). I was wondering how rare are the V70 T5s with manual transmissions? I know there is one on Ebay currently, and I rarely ever see them, but are they really that hard to get? Also, which transmission is the better choice for withstanding power modifications- the manual or the automatic? Finally, are there any known issues with these cars?

They are pretty rare. The even more rare car to keep your eyese open for is the T5 SE. Supposedly this car has suede alcantara interior like the 850R, though I haven't seen one in person yet.

I know few guys have manual V70. I have a manual C70...not that rare. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/wink.gif"><P>Met a lady in front of Chicken Out on Shady Grove once, she also had a C70 T5 manual...

The one on Ebay looks pretty nice, I wonder what kind of reserve price they want for it. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif"> It has the Winter Pack, so that is a plus!<P> <IMG SRC="http://images.prosperpoint.com/images/2139/107969-1957.jpg"> <P> <IMG SRC="http://images.prosperpoint.com/images/2139/107969-1952.jpg"> <P>It doesn't say where you live by your name, but there is a Black/Sand V70 T5 Manual in Cincinnati, Ohio for sale, asking $19,900 with 73,000 miles. It also comes with a set of winter tires+rims as a bonus.<P><B><A HREF="http://www.classifieds2000.com/cgi-cls/ad.exe?partner=c2k&path=Auto~Car~Details&recordid=1241176&hasphoto=0&keywordqueryid=358851200&titlesummary=title" TARGET=_blank>V70 T5 Manual Cincinnati, Ohio</A></B><P>-Drew
