I think it'll be tough to sell that car for 20K to a non-Volvo enthusiast. The average buyer doesn't want a 6 year old car when the same money can buy a new (albeit economy) car under warranty. Or if they're looking at used, 20K (+ maybe a little more) is enough to get them into a decent WRX/Evo/s4/3 series (which to be honest, are all going to drive better than the V50).

Only problem with those cars^ , they are all great--i'd like to own all of them-- the german cars will be more costly to maintain and the japanese may inflated prices due to demand. A friend of mine just spend >26k on an 06' STI with over 50k miles. An evo of most years are about the same price or more. Yes, a WRX is cheaper but many are molested and still bring high prices.
You can get a decent N54/N55 or B6/B7 for under 20k but A high-mileage example is just not something people without a ton of cash and time to spend bringing the car to the shop want to deal with.
I do agree with you though. for 20k, theres not bound to be many buyers. I'd rather have a $20k sti. I think what i love about volvo's is the quality, power, and reliability you can get in an older volvo at an affordable price, so for me, volvo's are best with 100k miles and a decent price... I want to buy p80R :) what you can do with a few thousand dollars is awesome!
GLWS- hope you get close to what your asking!

Thinking to sell my '10 V50 Wagon AWD Manual R-sys T5 White/ elevate lowering...

You should post this on the car classifieds section if you haven't already. Will probably get more views, and, most importantly, will be from Volvo enthusiasts.
