Hi there . . . For sale is my pride and joy, My Volvo S70 T5 2.3 5 cylinder Turbo. Ive owned her for 1 year now and shown it the love and attention it wanted.
I paid 1700 pounds for her after waiting and waiting for the right Solid T5 to come along for me to spend a bit of extra cash on. As soon as I saw it I knew it had to be that one so I brought it. With black leathers and being manual and only 132 thousand miles on the clock at the time I couldnt say no even though I knew it wanted a bit of love. I then took it straight to the spray shop and had the front and back bumpers fully resprayed, the bonnet and boot lid both resprayed both wing mirrows and drivers side door handle fully resprayed. This cost me £750 and still have the receipt to prove. I then took her to Tint R and paid £210 to have the rear windows tinted and front windows tinted to legal specifications, Then I took her to Jakks of nottingham hucknall for a fully custom built 1 off T4 stainless steel exhaust system. 2.5 inch bore straight through with only 1 silencer and de-cated for a much nicer garggle and better throttle responce/power. That cost me £485 but worth every penny once I heard it started and boosting smile Anyway , I spent a further £550 pounds on a set of 4 Chrome/Black spoked alloys ( summer wheels ) which will be included in the sale. I also got a k an n 57i induction kit fitted ( £139 ) for more cold air intake, that also sounds very nice when boosting and after throttle release. It already had the Rica ecu chip and mapping
done by the previous owner but needed the bigger exhaust bore to fully appreciate the power , , theres also a nice aftermarket boost gage fitted to let you know what boost your pushing at all times.
This car is 1 of a handfull remaining with black leather interior , black carpets and black dash, also being a Manual making it even more sort after. The private reg RAZ 9924 ( worth £595 on the dvla website ) will be sold with the car. There are no warning lights, lamber sensor lights, information lights, abs/engine management lights on once the cars started. She has only covered 140 thousand miles which for a T5 isnt even ran in yet. My last volvo s70 R had covered 265 thousand miles and still pulled like a train.
There are a couple of things that need doing but nothing major at all, the driverside front tyre needs replacing, , the handbreak needs tightning as it lifts to high but can be tightend, And I replaced the top engine mount to a powerflex polly mount but I think its got play in it again or it might even be a lower engine mount. It doesnt effect the drive at all its just something to keep in mind.
So to recap its a 1997 volvo S70 T-5 CD 2.3 5 cylinder turbo, Rica chip/ecu/mapping , full custom exhaust 1 off exhaust / decat , k and n air induction kit , Strut brace , black leather interior, manual , full tints , 3 months mot , 3 months tax , imaculat inside and out, blue neon side lights and blue neon rear registraion plate lights, 1 spare set of black and chrome spoked alloys ( 17 inch no tyres ) almost brand new, no warning lights, 140 thousand miles , Private reg ( RAZ ) never misses a beat , never over heats, all fluids checked and replaced recently, Ready to drive away.
So this brings me to the price, , considering all the effort and money spent on her im prepared to accept £2350 .
Im only selling her as I have a new company car so its time to let her go for someone else to be the new proud owner.
