Nothing yet....I got this car from a wholesale dealer in town, and so one seems to know service history and I can't find the T-belt sticker,So I am sending it out next monday for timing belt, water pump, seals, new plugs wires, cap and rotor, and new serpentine belt.The place I bought it from does specialize in european cars in particularBMW, Mercedes and Volvo, so they went over the car thoroughly before I bought it.I figure before I start doing things to the car, get that done first. Someone on here has a picture of a white Volvo with 17 inch wheels (volans) on here as a signature. That looks so good, that I am looking for a pair. Besides that, maybe window tint to try and preserve the leather, which has taken me a few weeks worth of work to stabilize since the previous owner(s) probably never conditioned. I also changed out the AC dash control unit, thanks to "Turtle" and "Tech" for their help with that . Don't really know what other mods to do though, so If anyone has any advice let me know. So far this car is a joy to drive. I knew there would be a reason it would take me 3 years to find the right 850. So far it has paid off!!

Keep searching for the rims you can find a set. Also look on craigslist in the surrounding areas as well.
One time I saw a set for sale in Tampa for $300.00 for the 4 of them with tires. So you can find them.

Nice looking. Agree that a larger wheel would look better. Put 16" Mimas from my S60 on my sons 850.

Sweet.
For future reference, check out this link for a bunch of aftermarket sites: https://volvoforums.com/m_38610/tm.htm
IPD, EST are two good companies.
Good luck and have fun with her.
