<b>Volvo S70 T5 SE Manual</b><p>I just wanted to say, what a <b>very</b> rare and nice car this is. A 1999 S70 T5 SE with manual transmission...all it needs is an ECU upgrade!

Re: Volvo S70 T5 SE Manual, How Nice! (The_one_n_only)

<BLOCKQUOTE>quote:<HR>So, SE with manual is hard to find?<p>MY99, eh? Hmm....<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><p>Yes, I think they are. This is only the second manual tranny S70 SE T5 that I have seen yet. I think that there are a lot more S70 GLT SE automatics out there...<p>-Drew

Yup yup, all the SE I've seen out there are GLT only. I think I might have come across some T5 ones, but I doubt they were ever manual.<p>Overal manual T5 is just not common in the US.

<BLOCKQUOTE>quote:<HR>Drew, is that car for sale? Where is it?<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><p>George,<p>The car was on sale, but has been sold already. It was in Belvidere, IL and was purchased for $17,100 with 33,961 miles on it. If the time was right for me, I would have loved to pick up that car, but I am going to keep an eye out for this particular model when I am ready.<p>-Drew

I like the seats seude/leather setup <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> I bet the wood/plastic on the steering wheel gets hot on summer days.

Hey Chris, is your wheel alcantara? I noticed that in pics of a '98R on ebay. How does it seem to hold up?

no, it is full leather...I am glad, I've seen some '98s w/ alcantara on the wheel and they were in rough shape.<p>

Congratulations on your new car, its awesome! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emwink.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>I got a great deal on the silver S70 T5 manual I bought in June. It had 32,000 miles on it, in perfect condition and I paid only $16,500! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emsmileo.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>The top end power that you can tap on the down-shifts is incredible and so addicting! Once you have a turbo with a manual tranny everything else seems so boring. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>I was told by the guy that I bought my car from that only 1 out of 1000 S70s sent to the US had manual transmissions.<p>I suggest that you check out the array of nice bolt-ons at <A HREF="http://www.easternaerospace.com" TARGET="_blank">http://www.easternaerospace.com</a><p>By the way, what does SE stand for?

If they only had 1000 S70 with manual, they probably only have 200 of us C70 with manual out there. They should have more than 1000 V70R in the US anyway...and I would assume they have less R than a manual S70.<p><BLOCKQUOTE>quote:<HR>I suggest that you check out the array of nice bolt-ons at eastern aerospace<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><br>Yeah, the infamous 500 hp bolt-on parts from EA. I would suggest you NOT to suggest others to use their stuff until you have actually tried their "performance" upgrades. EA probably has the worst reputation around the Volvo community, and I'm surprised to see their name pop'd out among some bimmer forum. That proved that much about bimmer owners. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emwink.gif" BORDER="0"> <p><BLOCKQUOTE>quote:<HR>By the way, what does SE stand for?<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><br>I think it means Special Edition.

Re: Volvo S70 T5 SE Manual, How Nice! ([email protected])

Hey, that's my car!!<p>I normally hang out over on the volvospeed boards, but have been on this one a few times. The car is Canadian, mph speedo though. I'd never seen a black on black t5 manual so I had to jump on this one, got it for a little less than the ending ebay price.<p>I'm taking it to VMP (virginia motorsports park) next friday nov. 1st with our car club to get some baseline stock runs. Any predictions??<p>The car has a happy home and will be well taken care of, can play with it's older brother the '84 and live a long life. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emwink.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Thanks for all the compliments!!

musterdbom,<p>Welcome to Swedespeed. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emwink.gif" BORDER="0"><p>Very sweet car indeed! I am guessing maybe a 14.8 in the 1/4 mile. I am very interested to see what you get. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"><p>-Drew

hmm, sounds like I need to take a trip down 81 and see how the R stacks up against a manual T5. I'd hope I could stay somewhat close. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emwink.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>congrats, it looks really nice!!

Come down to VMP Nov. 1st, you're even closer than I am to the strip! That would be so awesome to have a video of our two cars lined up against eachother! All space and time will cease to exist when two VOLVOS battle it out at a strip in VA. I'm sure the announcer will talk a lot of crap......until, well we'll see. I'm shooting for 14.8, hopefully it will be a nice cool night.<p>
