Oh nice! What do you have done to your car (if anything)?

Also, if you ever get a chance, check out Eurowerks. It's a local European forum, and we need some more Volvo representation lol.

I haven't actually modded my car hardly. Right now I'm just looking to do a little fixing and tweaking so that I can sell it soon. Need an 850 wagon?Ha. Plus I don't really have any facilities to do any SERIOUS work. All I can dois whatever can happen in the driveway without ramps.

Next, I'm looking at getting a '99 S70 T-AWD, I think I'd be more likely to put some time in to working on that?

Farmington here, just picked up another 240....no mods yet.

Short term is to fix what's wrong. Long term is to do an ls1 swap.

Burnsville Here, looking to buy an XC90. Getting a little disappointed with all the possiable problems with them. Tranny issues, tire problems, poor mileage. Plus there isnt a handy Volvo dear south of the river.

Hey I'm in Minnesota, in the twin city's. I don't know how to post a now thred so sorry if this is in the wrong place. I have a pair of Volvo 850r seats black and in very good condition. I took them out of my Volvo when I totaled and been tryin to sell them on craigslist but then thought what's. A better place there on here. If you would like to know anymore about them I would gladly send you the pictures. Thank you for reading. Also if this is the wrong place to post this let me know so I don't just annoy everyone.

And got a pair of clear corner lenses. Btw.

Good alternatives to dealership service in the Twin Cities? Maybe less $$...?

What is "Cars & Coffee"

You should post that Independent shop for "Speed60" he was asking for alternatives.

Did you go to the "Cars & Coffee" meet? How did you like it ??

That meeting looks good. Too bad it wasn't on Saturday like it says. I didn't get the email until it was already over today. Well that and the snow. I just can't believe three days into may and there is thick snow sitting on the ground. We actually lost power for a few hours Wed eve and Thur morn as it must have taken down a distribution wire somewhere in the area.

My thunderbird won't even get out of it's own way in a little snow. With this stuff I can't even get it the 20ft to get it into the garage and I'll be damned if I'm going to shovel. I can't stomach it's been here for two days now

The volvo has the stock tires so it walks through the stuff pretty easy.

I have never been here and have no idea of their prices. I live nearby and they always seem busy.
