So happy to find this thread! I thought I was the only one who wanted to drive to the moon, and thought I hadn't made it yet, but I was using the average distance (238k). 98 V70XC, 234k and change, no longer AWD. Most of the way through a Stage 0, excepting doing the vacuum lines. I love me a good harvest moon! Thanks to all the folks on this forum that'll keep ol' nordic thunder running all the way back to Earth.

1996 855T. leather is fine, turbo is good. Replaced trans at 180K. Also replaced windshield, all front end components, mounts, rotors, fluids, reservoir, heater core, hoses, seals, belts. White ext. Grey int. 280K miles. I'm on my way back.
Radiator, alternator, starter, ignition, timing belt, water pump, new leather, double DIN, usb ports, IPD bars, mounts, inserts, slotted rotors, cleaned injectors, sound insulation, roof rack.
Although "harvest" and "waxing" moon are more appropriate, I'm going with "Sailor Moon"..The aftermarket one.
Life is like a box of chocol- make that an engine compartment. You never know where all the hoses go. Unless you read the diagram on the hood. When all else fails, follow the instructions. Do it right the 2nd time.

Well I have 21,753 miles to go! I hit 200K on the beltway in my S80 today. Probably next year before I get to 221,753 miles :lol: . She still runs effortlessly down the highway! Hopefully she has another 200K in her... June
