Thumbs up Seasoned (versus "old") Volvo Guy - "new" 2001 C70 & new to this forum...

Hello from Colorado!

Been a Volvo owner one model or another since 2004 (created a photo album) - just picked up my first C70 from down in Florida a 2001 with just 39K miles - SWEET!! Made the four day drive back through the snow and ice to bring her home to a cold Colorado garage... New to the forum looking forward to many tips and lessons learned in addition to good old chats!

First on my list of DIY is better halogen bulbs to include fog lights (stock does little to light up the road) and I have to replace the driver's seat cover (leather) due to Florida sun and poor repair job by dealer. Tips on either appreciated via PM or post - will share what I know about S60's and my progress on C70.

Welcome aboard! If you haven't already, post in the C70 section to get answers on lighting and leather repairs.

Congrats on that beauty!
That looks like the same seller that had a 95 silver M3 that I was drooling over.
