2005 V50 T5 AWD M66 or 2011 C30 T5 M66

Post by Skkele »

Hi All,

I might have the chance to sell my 2005 V70 2.4 auto and pickup either a 2005 V50 T5 AWD M66 121k or a 2011 C30 T5 M66 28k salvage title.

The V50 has a few issues (AC, rear hatch doesn't want to open, minor body damage).

The C30 looks amazing but salvage title...

I could do either for a size standpoint. I don't really need the AWD but it'd nice/cool.

Any advice?

Get the history on the C30. You do not want a flood car.
Help keep MVS on the web -> click sponsors' links here on MVS when you buy from them.
Also -> Amazon link
. Click that when you go to buy something on Amazon and MVS gets a kickback.
