Default 97 S70 for Sale: 10V, sport exh+susp, Dynaudio, Leather, LHD

Hi,

I have to sell my beloved S70! I cannot believe it myself, but we are moving continents so it is impossible to take it with me (otherwise I would have).

First of all: this is a LHD vehicle, imported by myself from Germany (in 2008). For me, driving on the left has its advantages (safe for entering and leaving the car) and disadvantages (overtaking). I have driven the car in the UK for over 10years now and never had any problems regarding driving.

The car comes with a complete service history booklet and I have receipts for almost all repairs under my ownership.

Km/miles: 267.000/166,000

Colour: Anthracite (427)

Wheels: Continental Sport Contact on 17" Comet rims (anthracite)

Modifications:
Egg crate grill
The car has a lowered sport suspension (not Volvo)
Jetex sport exhaust (lower grade stainless steel) fantastic sound.
K&N air filter.

Interior: dark grey/black leather, wood trim.

Other: manual, TRACS, ACC

Stereo:
SC-901 unit and the corresponding Volvo amplifier.
Original Volvo DYNAUDIO loudspeakers, which I fitted.
Alpine 6-CD changer
A very unique and genuine combination with absolutely fantastic sound.

Repairs:
yearly inspections
will get front brakes done next week;
MOT til October 2019;
new clutch @ 262.000km
Timing belt @ 260.000km
had PCV replaced a few years ago
new thermostat in 2016
rear brakes and discs @ 240.000km
lock cylinder @ 240.000
Serpentine belt @ 208.000km
...

The car has been serviced at volvo dealerships or specialists (and lately at one of the best Volvo specialists I can think of: Volvomax Glasgow).

Ownership history: my father bought the car from a Volvo dealership in 1998, owned it til 2003, I bought if from him and have owned and driven it since.

The car has some dents and scratches.

I would like to achieve a price around 900, but am open for offers.

The car is located in Glasgow and would need to be collected.

Looking forward to interested PMs and comments/questions welcome.

(Will post more recent pictures soon.)

Another picture showing the front of the car. The headlights and indicator reflectors are relatively new. Indicators have LED bulbs installed.

More to follow...

Thanks for viewing.

Thank you all for the encouraging messages. I really hope to find someone from the community to sell her to and am open for offers.

Today the car is with Volvomax to get front brakes checked and probably replaced. They felt a bit stiff, so there might be a problem with the caliper, let's see.

The car now has its own Twitter account under the name Volvoforsale. I will post regular updates, so please follow, like and retweet

Cheers!

Hi,
Have the car a good wash and wax yesterday and took some pictures yesterday.

For anyone who is seriously interested: I will consider offers, so please do not hesitate to contact me. I have to sell this car rather soon and would prefer it go into good hands. It will go on eBay either today or tomorrow, but I am still open to offers from people on here.

Hope you like the pictures (please remember that odometer shows kilometres).

Will also post pictures of service history soon.

The recent service resulted in the brakes getting cleaned, but otherwise they are good.

The courtesy light in one of the rear doors doesn't work and that same door doesn't trigger the interior lights. Volvomax changed locks to see whether it's the microswitch, but that didn't make a difference. Might be a broken cable.

Thanks!
