My addiction to cheap S70's is apparent. My latest acquisition is a 98 T5 SE, Silver on Charcoal, for a whopping $375. What a steal!









Known issues:

1: Theres a hole in the catalytic converter. Bummer here, seems a bit expensive to fix but I'm shopping around for options.

2: The passenger rear window has no regulator. It's just.... gone. So the window doesn't stay up. Also... there are two sticks holding it up. Also... the back portion of the door panel is missing. Oh well.




It's missing the Volvo slash, smells a bit like cigarette smoke, needs a PCV job, and thermostat, but thats it! The interior is in great condition, engine runs great, recent timing belt... I think I'm falling for this one.

Would like input on the cat repair though! Can I just swap in a used downpipe?

Sweet car! Is the SE panel there though? That has to be a pita if that's missing.

People who post ads on Kijiji without pics and don't know what these cars are worth I suppose?
Kijiji is the best.

I've not been too focussed on my Volvo game these past couple of months. Wanted to post a quick update that this car is officially sold!

A nice fella who wants to do some mods picked it up! He took it in it's existing condition since I haven't done any of the work I had planned doing xD! Win win!
