Just purchased a Sapphire Black V70R AWD With a Prinis VSI 1 LPG conversion and the family pack rear seats plus monitors in the headrests and the seven seat conversion as well. She has 123,200 miles on the clock but the car has a lot of recent work done to her.

I tested her on Dartmoor on a patch of grass and the AWD is working on all wheels Video soon

She is not immaculate and will need a good bit of tiding.

Things that NEED FIXED

Key Fob is duff but comes with two new spares that will need need programming
Interior Mirror glass needs replaced
The car needs a really good clean out and valet
Front and rear bumpers need some small repairs and refinishing and probably a back bumper chaff guard needs fitted
Minor touch up on both front wings
One Headlamp wiper is not working (both blades need replaced)
A/C not working hopefully a Re-Gas will sort that.
SatNav not working (nothing in the wee box in the boot)

Will be doing a LONNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNG post purchase test drive tomorrow....500 miles to get her home to Sunny Motherwell.

First V70R I've seen without R-Line silver headlights. The black xenon headlights were an option for non-Rs. I have heard of someone on another forum with a blue R changing the R lights to black.

2004/53 Reg V70R Manual
Titanium Pearl Grey
Nordkap blue interior
113k miles

I bought it from a friend who had upgraded to a Jaguar XF-R. During his ownership it had basic servicing and nothing else, so there was a growing list of niggly faults.

So far i've replaced:
Front disks (Brembo)
Front drop-links
Rear 4C Monroe Shocks
Cat-back exhaust (BSR stainless)
Front fog light
Rear wiper motor
Mirror glass

Next on list are:
Air filter
Spark plugs (to Genuine Volvo)
Haldex filer / oil
Rear trailing arm front bushes
Rear drop-links
Wheel refurb

And when an offer price next comes along, the front 4C shocks.

It's getting there!

Volvo V70R
Manual gearbox
134,000 miles
Black with beige interior
Standard car

Owned since March 2017, bought as an 'honest' cars but in need of TLC.

Thus far...
Full machine polish
Wheels refurbed in anthracite
Full service kit and all fluids (gearbox, diff, Haldex, power steering etc)
Volvo cambelt kit, water pump, aux belt and tensioner
Upper strut tops and drop links
Poly trailing arm bushes
Reconditioned DEM
Angle gear sleeve
Rear ride height sensors
Outer CV gaitors

On the to do list... or at least the significant bits...
4 x 4C shocks that have been sat gathering dust
Front and rear discs and pad... again been sat waiting
Front bumper and rear bumper trims repainted
Lower steering joint
Rear anti-roll bar drop links

Also debating selling the car before winter... lack of use, it's criminal.

Extensive work carried out, I'd go as far as to call it restored and its almost complete now, few jobs left but getting there.

Just re-instated it as my Winter runabout (crazy I know). Runs extremely well, about to give it a good Waxoyl underneath. Few jobs still to do.
