Re: 2006 S60R Conti EC DWS in snow?

My older DWS were terrific when new in snow up to about 4-5"
After that no one should be out in heavy snow without dedicated snow tires and AWD (if possible).

My current V70 2.5T FWD has newer DWS06's. I'll let you know if I get stuck out in snow (I try not to go out in snow these days, if possible).

Oak-Arena is a two tone
The darker color is Oak, the lighter Arena is a light Taupe
Your door panels should be 2 tone and the seats the darker color.
However...this color changes with age and sunlight and you need a professional who can mix their dye on the spot to match your color

Re: 03 V70 Ride Height Questions

No
They're supposed to have a slight rake unless you play with aftermarket springs and adjust the rear lower
(Looks a bit odd when done that way)

He's nice. Swedish, moved here a year ago
I think he's going to use it, (VERY YOUNG) kids and all, and it will probably be thrashed in a year or so. :(
Not my worry anymore

This just got sold, paid for and delivered within 9% off of the above asking price.

Local sale to boot.
Most of my buyers are out of state.

Re: 2005 V70 NA clutch job Topic is solved

Many have called me many things but EVIL has never been one of them (thanks a lot)! That's not very nice, you got a real nice 5 speed and to this date I've only seen one other for sale. That had 150K miles and was a real POS. At the time I really should have kept the one I sold to you, done the susp...

Re: Ooops, I did it again! A 03 V70 T5 comes home.

It has to relearn for 500-1000+ miles AFTER the adaptions. Drive it for a while some more.
Yellow flashing in the adaption process mean that shift is good and move on to the next gear

Re: '07 XC70 Comes home

ALL these A pillar trim pieces are coming loose now everywhere. Bad Volvo glue and sun for 10-13 years! Don't think about the side curtains they're fine. Replacement cost at Volvo wholesale like Tascaparts.com will set you back a hair over $100 for the pair, 5 minutes to replace them. Fixing them i...

MVS is probably the wrong site to advertise this, however here it is! 2000 S70 GLTSE. She's most likely the lowest mileage and the nicest one in the world... with collector status. 30,005 original miles Below is the list of what I installed in the past 7 months and a slideshow Slideshow: http://s732...

A 5 speed manual should average over 30 MPG on the highway
