I thought those looked familiar. They probably saw no miles since the emerald doesn't ever move. LOL
those are the OZ LM's I got from SB...17x7.5 with 225/45... only had to roll the rear fenders with 15MM spacers

Nice. How does one roll these renders?

That is so cool. About 200 bucks, it appears. Wow.
Played around with my new FLIR One imager a bit
Engine bay in general:
Turbo + downpipe:
These were taken after the car had been sitting for 10-15 minutes once I got home

Got my car back up and running. I've neglected it for at least half a year. Got new tires, oil change and new battery. Cleaned the engine bay. She started right up with out a hiccup and took it to the gas station for a full tank of 91. I miss driving her. But now the fun stuff is going to happen, need to do an entire suspension upgrade. Hopefully in April.

Had Hagerty reject the Saffron R as a collector's vehicle because they don't deem it as such since it's not 25 years old...
I think someone needs to alert them as to what's happening with R wagon values.
It seems really haphazard about when insurance companies will do so and not. Maybe it depends on who you get as an agent? Not sure. Getting closer to the 25 year rule.

I've got 11 years to go, from this past Tuesday. :(

You're not kidding... P80 Rs were worthless a couple years ago, now they're shooting up like everything else. All used car values are insane right now.

I think it partially depends on your agent. My agent is an allstate agent that also brokers to other companies.

He was able to work with hagerty to get both of my 850Rs insured through them and it didn't seem like it was that much of an issue.

I think working with someone that does a lot of business with hagerty already does play a small role in getting it done.

Thanks, I’m pretty excited about it. Lots of possibilities. The FLIR One line is a lot more affordable than true standalone imagers, but as a result is more consumer oriented than pro oriented (it’s not a feature-rich)

Details on the sale?

I believe there was some “spring savings” discount code. I don’t remember if it was in this thread, but I know it’s been discussed. The code works on any dealer site.

No idea, he trade that for a Honda Civic 5 speed w 300k miles which honestly was the nicest car he got recently
he traded that for a Buick, then sold the Buick and back to Volvo
