Default 2003 Volvo S40 1.8 Petrol Sport Lux

Hi all I have a 2003 S40 1.8 Petrol Sport Lux that I am sadly selling as spares or repairs. It failed its MOT and because I am not using it very much it doesn’t make sense to spend a lot putting it right.

It has only done 62,000 miles and been serviced every year by an independent garage. It is my Dads car and he has owned it for the last 17 years. Bought from Dundee Volvo when only a year old with 5000 miles on it.

Will sell the whole the car if I get a reasonable offer or will break for spares if someone wants a reasonable number of the parts.

It is the Sport Lux model so has a good spec. It is garnet red with an immaculate black leather interior and 18” Arcadia alloys.

Any questions just ask and thanks for looking.

Hopefully this car can be saved by someone as a full car, however at 12 Volvos at present, I sadly can't take it on. If you do ultimately break the car, could you post some pics? I'd buy bits and pieces that catch my eye.
