No, he dropped it by $100. Said we can look all we want but couldn't take it to the Bimmer specialist next to his home for an inspection. Decided to pass.

Metal dog guard for a P2 wagon, Minneapolis. Overpriced, $150.

These things are great for dogs and for keeping cargo off the back of your head in an accident. Disclaimer this appears to be aftermarket so not sure if it matches the high quality of the factory ones. They definitely got the model years wrong in the instructions (says 2000-2007 V70).

If you frequently haul stuff that sticks up over the back seat, give it a thought. You there, abscate?

I see these VERY rarely at junkyards, it looks like a great thing to have. The genuine ones have struts on them to fold them up and out of the way. Pretty cool to have, and very useful.

P2 S60 cars really don't bring much on the used market.

They really don't. You can even pick up an '09 for dirt cheap usually.
