Not bad for a cheap R. Definitely needs some love though.

If it is running and driving then maybe it might be worth a shot, but not at that price. Crazy prices there may be these days but a neglected 'R' is not a cheap recovery with many unique parts and a lot of the rear NLA from any source. Even the AWD lower torque mount is NLA. At least it is a 99 so no unique rear brake calipers and rotors.

Not sure what is going on with the interior though. Beige?? Black front seats and beige headrests? The beige door panels are not 'R' panels either.

So do 99 'R's have the tailpipe exiting on the left? I looked up pictures and did strangely find one with it on the left but all the rest were like V70 AWD and V70XC and exit on the right, assuming they were not updated to dual mufflers.

Hard to tell from the angle, but does not look like blue instrument dials.

So is this and 'R' or a tarted up AWD with 'R' engine covers?

Neil.

It is pretty rough, and anybody commenting over there probably has no idea how much of a basket case it will be. Current car prices are insane though, that's why it seems like a good deal. I paid $300 for my R 4 years ago, and I talked him down from $350 :lol:.

I'll have to grab it and drop a big turbo red block into it. It's no fun if it's not a death trap!
