SOTW: VOLVO 850 T5 ESTATE
Invigoratingly sinister looking Volvo pairs hearse chic with dump valve'n'strut brace upgrades
The perennial traffic cops' car of choice, the T5 harks back to an earlier era of fast Volvos now looking to be revived by a new generation, souped up by Polestar. Indeed, we were out and about in the new S60 Polestar earlier in the week and very impressive it is too. OK, it's got 328hp rather than the 508hp of the $300K concept we drove a short while back but it does cost a rather more reasonable £38K or so and has a pleasingly old-school turbo feel with a huge rush of boost swelling the mid-range power delivery to most un-Volvo like levels.
buy a Ferrari 599 for £599.

VOLVO 850 T5 estate manual (£850)
Here for sale is my 850 T5 manual estate.I have owned it now over 3 years.I no longer really need an estate a want to get a XJR! It has MOT up to April and is currently Taxed up to the end of September,I will have to return tax if it does not sell by mid August because this is when my insurance is due for renewal.The interior is very good with no wear to the seat corners etc! It has a touch screen radio/cd/tv/ipod plugs etc, your mobile will also work through it! Body is generally good but does have a few dings and scratches,the worst can be seen in 2 of the photos.There is a lot of paperwork history with old mots,bills and invoices etc,mileage is 157 k.Parts been replaced in the last year have been the front lower suspension arms,link arms.Water pump was also done at the same time as having the cam belt and tensioner replaced.It has had a few mods,boost gauge mounted on the A pillar,bailey dump valve and strut brace.It will need 2 rear tyres soon.Also at times the abs tracs light comes on! A common fault I have read on the Volvo forum.The car has been a daily working car but I have always kept it tidy and looked after it.Any questions or more info needed then please ask.Thank you
