Throttle Body Contamination on '03 S80 2.9
Can anyone advise me on wether or not to make this purchase. I have reviewed the service records of this vehicle and it indicated a TB contamination. I have done a search on this forum, but would like personal advise from any current or previous owners of this same vehicle. Mileage on the car is 54,000KM, and I am intersted in buying today!
Please help me out!

Contamination? I take it that is just the ETM problem that 99+ models have. If I am wrong please correct me someone.

The ETM problems are in the 1999-2001 cars. The 2002 and newer have a different setup.
The Contamination they might have been talking about may have been a dirty throttle body.
