Default V50 t5 awd m66

Looking to find the unicorn that is a V50 T5 AWD M66 (manual)

Plan is to rebuild and modify

Ideally silver with the R Design body kit but will consider this as part of the modification for the right car.

Again preferably 2006 onwards and around the 120k mark or less but again this is only preference due to the rarity.

If anybody knows anybody looking to get rid or has seen any for sale let us know on here and i would be eternally grateful. Thought this might be the place to ask due to people having a love for these cars.

Cheers pickup.

Just noticed that post - out of curiosity, found any?
Having owning said unicorn I am interested if I will have twin on this forum? :>
btw - never seen pre FL model with R trim, SPORT package like mine are easier to find but not sure if R was an option for 05-06 model...

Not so great really i have seen 1 Auto and 1 Manual AWD but neither right mileage nor spec. Went to look at a FWD T5 the other week unfortunately sold when i rang back... Any tips or know anybody on here selling one?

Yes maybe used the wrong terminology for R Design as in the body kit, but presume now that means the seats and trim. As for the year unsure what year they introduced R Design Trim?


Been running a 2.0D R design sport for about a year now as a daily so was looking to buy the T5 as a bit of a project.

How long have you owned your T5? What sort of mileage you on now? Looks great by the way!

Found Project V50 on YouTube and since then been on the lookout for an M66 AWD.

Cheers pickup.

Have mine since May 2016, got it with 93k miles, on 145k now. A lot of effort&money went into it to make it running as I want it (with my car OCD it is really a no ending money pit) but condition and drive feeling is now closer to 5 not 15y old car. AWD makes it even more unique and more usable on any surface, just gotta love it when it catapults you with 4wheel spin, hew hew

Project v50 is a car owned by Michael (MNIWT) from Swedespeed forum, a real fan and a fountain of knowledge regarding those models, he helped me a lot with some issues and if you get the car you should join SS forum as T5's are much more popular there.
Im not sure about R-design trim on those, I thought only 08' were available in R-design but then Im not sure if AWD was available in UK after 08, its just a lot of market variations and specifics (like S40 AWD not available with RHD etc..).
