I had a really hard time finding a T5M. What I did was call a bunch of dealers and just ask them if they will call you if they get one in. I did that with Farrell Volvo, and they called me the morning they got a trade in, and now I am where i am now! <p>Have you considered just looking for an R? There are many more S60R's in a stick than T5M's. The price is really close to the price of a T5M now too.

calling and asking is your best bet and a little FYI most of your t5Ms are going to be 01s and 02s...<p>Also be willing to drive/fly...<p>i flew a thousand miles and drove mine home

Re: (Impulse922)

Just look on Autotrader.com, or Ebay. Those are probably your best bet, because you can filter your results so you can find all of the manual s60's. You never know someone might have one for sale around your area.

Re: what is it... (kentis19)

Usually they will post a picture of the instrument cluster in the ad. Make sure there is no letter indicated next to the odometer (e.g., P or D).

I, personally would either set your limit well below 80k, or not worry about a limit at all.<p>At 80k you will be approaching some major service items in a year or two, you might as well not worry about a mileage limit at that point and worry more about service history.

Yea i agree with the "i'd have a s60 by now if i didn't need a manual" line. Where i got mine in Toronto, there was a 2.4T there but automatic, similar km on the odometer, and a touch more expensive. I went for the 2.4 NA just because it was manual.
