Posted a low mileage 850 base a couple of days ago here listed in Calgary. Next day the guy jacked the price to $4500 from $3000. Fool left the original price in the text?! $4500 and an ABS fault. I think not but there are crazy people out there.

There is also a badly discolored red 94 850 Turbo sedan someone wants $3800 for. That is nuts. You can guarantee those cars will need a lot more spent on them to the point you could just buy a better newer car.

Manual v50 AWD, nice combo but with the turbo not working and the possibility of needing to drop the trans it seems a bit high to me.

There's also this manual 240 wagon project

$1000 is the new $500! That 240 is still worth grabbing, I'd make him an offer if it was closer. That V50 is a great deal though!

Unfortunately it's a 99 and the interior reflects the age in years not in miles (102k). Not even a manual. But this NA is probably mechanically good. Fix the ABS and go. Has a weird accent stripe painted on it.

'99 NAs are pretty solid. The one my cousin had was great. Really low mileage, it's a shame the rest of the car is pretty battered.

It certainly is, for someone selling a clean 850R.
