850 T5 or V70 T5

can i surmise that you guys feel that the extra RM30K for the V70 is not
worth the while.

The price drop of the 850-T5 has more or less saturated whereas the V70
prices will keep falling still, so tendency of losing more is forseeable.
The dashboard rattles can be caused by broken clips during unprofessional
air-cond repair/service, can also happen to the V70 if not careful.
Tweaking of the absorbers to provide softer ride is my next project,
nothing is impossible and like most guys here said, 30k is a lot of
money, can get you a good holiday and car repaired.
Anyway, don't rush but again how many are there in the market which is
for sale ?

is because the trimming around the car is the same color as the body
unlike the 850 where the strips are grey. makes the the v70 look very
engine on the v70 puts out 250hp while the 850 is 225. the v70 also does
not have the boost meter on the dash unlike the 850.
personally still prefer the 850 though

I like it too but fear of its age. But for its age, it still LOOKS FIERCE
especially if you see one coming from behind in your rearview mirror.

but listen to the sifus..30k is loads of money and you might end up not having any
budget to do up the V70. I did some changes to mine and the hole in pocket can be
speaking of rear mirror and bug...the T5 is really unique.
everytime i stop traffic light, i get 3 kinds of stares
a. what car is that? waah...never see before....big but look very sporty, stylish...
b. eeh...Volvo got station wagon meh? wahh..must be good car..
c. aiyoh...look like a box...ugly (yes, got people really dont like the T5 shape)_
but what i like is when some of these people try to overtake you immediately when
the light goes green. (they have this pre-conceived idea that this must be a slow
sluggish car and it will block them). I will let them overtake me and
then.....VROOOOM..the turbo comes out and fly past them...i tell you...the shocking
look on their face is priceless....especially when you do it to a Benz or
