Thumbs up 850R Register

I have started a T-5R register on this forum. I thought it would also be interesting to start an 850R register as well, so can anybody with an 850R please list the following details about their car:

Year
Type (854 is four door, 855 is estate)
Manual or Automatic
Colour
Mileage (optional)
Where the car is in the UK (optional)

Ex Volvo press car, probably one of the first released looking at the date of registration.
Rebuilt engine at 110K after a bit of rod bend...
19T, Rica, Racelogic Traction control, AP's & HID's to name a few alterations

Bought car new from John Cleland. Sold it to a mate at 150k. Couldn't bear to be without, so bought it back at 170k. No mods, though synchro went on 3rd gear at 190k - otherwise, original.

Known locally as the red infuriator!
