Ok, thanks for the explanation.

I'm on the right track in that I put things in the cart but may not pull the trigger for a couple of days.

I ordered this mouse yesterday afternoon and it was at my doorstep this morning :? :shock:

I'm a Prime member, but overnight? Hey I'll take it.

I'm using the mouse right now and it's very good. Tracking, scrolling, feel, and plug-n-play all excellent. Under $20. Amazing.

Twenty years ago when MVS was a twinkle in my eye, a mouse like this would have been a dream. Not available at any price.

Thirty years ago when I got my first modern computer, this mouse would have been considered Sci Fi... like flying cars and travel to other solar systems.

Buy it and help MVS https://amzn.to/3lGX7Ck (the MVS affiliate link is embedded in that URL... no need to do anything except click on it)

Thanks for posting this thread.
For years, I've been using the link - http://www.amazon.com/?tag=matthewsvolvo5-20
The first post SAYS to use - https://www.amazon.com/?tag=matthewsvolvo10-20
But the URL in the HTML is - https://www.amazon.com/?tag=matthewsvolvo3-20
Now I'm all mixed up. What's the real URL for USA members to give you the kick back?

Good question. Any of those. They all are children tags to my Associates account. When I got it 10 years ago, they handed out ten children tags, and I use them for various purposes like if a MVS user comes in off the Home page or a forum topic page.

I wasn't strict with their assignment, so you might find overlap in their use.

Thanks FireFox!

Hello again Matthew1,

You and I spoke some time ago so please allow me to thank you once again for your help. I’m at another possible ‘DIY UPGRADE’ and potentially have the opportunity to snag a complete set of alcantara seats from a 2001 V70R that I’m hoping I can transfer into my 95 850 Turbo Sedan.
My biggest issue is that I am unable to drive/transport my 850 to where the V70 is to tryout some component swaps. To your knowledge is this a transfer that can be done?
Also, the alcantara seats would rate a 7-10 in their current condition.. what do you think an appropriate offer would be on wanting to purchase them?
Thanks again Matthew! Can’t thank you enough!

1995 Volvo 850 Turbo Sedan Only 110,000 kms and factory painted 420-22 Amethyst/Aubergine
:? Sound familiar? It certainly didn’t to me but I’m no expert in Volvo Paint Codes. (( Share you’re thoughts if you have any info ))

A 2001 R?
I thought there was an R gap between 2000 ( P80 ) and 2004 (P2).
Could it be that you're looking at a 2000 R?

YYC850, I'm not aware of that color. Did you mean Atacama? See https://www.matthewsvolvosite.com/volvo ... lor-codes/
