Points to consider – Drivers side front wing shows signs of a small rust patch (a very common fault with the 850). Slight distortion in side of Bumper (below rust patch on drivers wing). Both front leather seats are worn/cracked, but no rips/holes (driver’s seat being the worst). Previous owner sourced a matching coloured Tailgate (Tailgate is from a V70) It’s a perfect fit, but the high level brake light(top of glass) is the giveaway, that it’s from a V70. 2 small indents in both drivers/passengers lower doors (just below door trim). Rust scab on rear of roof (size of a 10 pence piece). Drivers door card edge has small tears (I think previous owner used to catch the seat belt?). Battery is sluggish, when starting car. Scuff on corner of rear bumper (passenger side). Load cover no longer retracts (another common 850/V70 fault!)

Several photos showing some of the "Points to consider".

Rust patch on wing. Plus slight distortion to side of bumper.

Wear/Cracking to both front leather seats.

I'm offering a sweetener to this deal.

Adding a genuine Volvo front strut brace.

Getting harder to find/come by, these Volvo 850/V70/S70/C70 strut braces.

I didnt get much change out of £100, for this, when i bought it a couple of weeks ago.

I took these pics the other night, an you can see that ive just placed the brace in position, its not connected at this point in time.
