Check it out, this car has "Volvo Certified Mods"! How come no one told my dealer about these?<br><A HREF="http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/S60-R-With-Mods_W0QQcmdZViewItemQQcategoryZ50456QQihZ010QQitemZ200021676692QQrdZ1" TARGET="_blank">http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors...QrdZ1</A>

Re: Volvo Certified Mods (Reno R)

I like the fact that it comes with a VOLVO CERTIFIED:<p><br><IMG SRC="http://images.google.com/images?q=tbn:YjgkINpA_lphAM:http://www.harunyahya.com/kids/pictures/wallpaper1024/parrot.jpg" BORDER="0"><IMG SRC="http://images.google.com/images?q=tbn:pQazrqvZhvygjM:http://works.artsig.com/works/77/04/40477-48b22bf701b854ea.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>as opposed to the inferior Volvo supplied:<p><IMG SRC="http://images.google.com/images?q=tbn:VDgfQWo90gHwRM:http://www.km77.com/marcas/renault/clio_01/motor_1.5_dCi/gra/motor.jpg" BORDER="0"><IMG SRC="http://images.google.com/images?q=tbn:wCIVlN4cyybDjM:http://people.albion.edu/kmi10/OLA%2520LOGO%2520copy.jpg" BORDER="0"><IMG SRC="http://images.google.com/images?q=tbn:pQazrqvZhvygjM:http://works.artsig.com/works/77/04/40477-48b22bf701b854ea.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>

Re: Volvo Certified Mods (Reno R)

Who care's if the mods are certified... my dealer can't even figure out how to change the cracked power steering resovior. What I'm more intrestead in is the 20mpg in the city and the 26 mpg on the hwy with a 350hp chipped car. I barley see 21 mpg with the power I got now. <p>More hp and better gas milage. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: Volvo Certified Mods (Reno R)

I "whant" "I family mobile" with Pirelli "Zero" tires and a few certified mods from my dealer, too (a different "intak" for example). I'd also like to have the five speakers he swiped. Is it just me, or does it look like the guy snaked his Parrot cable right through the CD slot (what the...!!!)? <p>Actually, it appears to be a sweet car. Especially since the nimrod forgot to place a reserve price on his auction. Only $1.25 as I write this... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>- Tryg

Re: Volvo Certified Mods (Reno R)

Quick, somebody email him and ask for a copy of the "certification" for his turbo, "intak", and chip. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/zeroforum_graphics/screwy.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: (R Salesman)

I'm surprised no one yet commented that this was a scam....<br>Pretty obvious...<br>0 feedback... Doesn't know car...<br>That's why no one is bidding on it...
