Volvo 940 Turbo: Reader's Car of the Week


Selling a car is always tough, particularly if it's a vehicle with which you've formed a particular bond. For PHer 'leeds_182', the anguish was just too much, and he bought the car back!

His particular obsession is with a Volvo 940 Turbo, which he modified last year and then sold. With a new exhaust, uprated turbo and new injectors, this PHer's Volvo is producing in the region of 230hp. With some chassis mods to help contain it (and make the Volvo look better, we would say), it should probably come as little surprise that 'leeds_182' was desperate to get the car back.

With the thread only started on Wednesday, there's not a tremendous amount to catch up on right now. The opening post says a few bits need sorting before any show outings later in the year, but it's already looking good to us. Well done on getting the car back, leeds_182, we're excited to see the adventures you take it on next!

    I had to check the date was not the 1st of April. It appears this car has completed a Halfords ram raid, drive through!

    Please point out which parts are bought from Halfords, other than the wiper blades I’m struggling to see your point. I suspect you don’t have one and are trying to be a smart ar5e.

    You failed by the way.

    Well, you're half right.

    Suspect SloaneSquare is struggling with what's cool about a fast old Ovlov. Personally, I love it, and would much rather drive round in something like that than a new Golf GTD with just 59 easy payments left to make before I have to give it back and find another 5 grand downpayment. To each their own.

    I think he was referring to

    Badly fitting / over sized exhaust sticking out the back
    silly stickers on windows
    over sized wheels with tyres that don't fit them (stretched?).

    I used to have one of these 940's, a Wentworth 2.0 turbo iron block, turned up the boost for some fun but also kept it looking bog standard.
