Volvoteers - I'm a long time car enthusiast (classic BMWs, but mostly, I'm a wagon guy) looking to make the jump to Volvo land. New BMWs are gaaaarbage, so I need another reliable and fun brand.

I'm willing to travel around the country for a car. I'm getting a bit frustrated with my search because I find a car that's great, plan a weekend to see it, then it sells before I travel there. I've missed 3 cars so far that I would have purchased.

I'm in Wisconsin, and need the AWD. I love the look of v70s and v50s, (no XC70s, though - the plastic cladding is a sin.)

In an ideal world, I'd have a white pre-facelift v50 2.5t AWD 6-speed with black interior.

Need: v70 or v50, AWD, 2.5t
Want: White or Red exterior, Manual trans, pre-facelift
Do Not Want: R-design or other special aesthetic packages, XC70
Have: My budget is in-line with real world prices

Anyone holding?

more cars have been sold before I can get to them LOL

so if you had to pick between:

1. Auto AWD w/90,000 miles
2. Manual AWD w/170,000 miles

Which one do you think will go another 75k with less maintenance? Or is it a moot point and they'll both get there swimmingly?
