Windows replaced. That's it. All other parts I've had off are marked either late '95 (some interior panels/parts) or some time in '96. If you actually do things yourself, you'll see little paper "price tags" scattered around with production dates on them.misha wrote:All windows replaced for some reason....no chipped key....something isn't right here.How you can be sure that other things are stock?!
My car is original,bought back in 2000 from a familly friend with 69k km.
It have Motronic 4.4 pretty rare for 850.
It came from the factory with 16" Persus wheel...also pretty rare....usually they come with 15" with n/a engine.
It came with front fog lights(spot lights) from the factory.
Car is not manufactured "by order".
I also thought that all 850s came from factory without chipped keys....i found out that i was wrong....they actually had them...like i said....from '96.
You will find out that you're wrong too....if you want to accept that.
Sounds like your car is more out of the ordinary than mine, buddy. M4.4 is not normal on 850s, at least not European ones. Mine has the regular sized T5 wheels, stock everything except the windows, and an R model wing and bumper.
Why would the cars not be manufactured "by order"? Are you saying that you couldn't order a car with various accessories (like immobilizer, alarm, rails, wheels, etc)? Or that Volvo couldn't customize both interior and exterior for you?
I've had 3 850s, none of them with immobilizers. The fact is that the immobilizer is in the accessories catalogue, and that it was an option. I.e. you could order it when you bought the car, or have it installed at a later date. It was by no means standard.
