Just had a look on auto trader and someone right near me in Blackpool is selling a V70R Flash green JDM with loads done to it. Seems to have spent a good penny already. If you do an auto trader search round Blackpool you will find it. It’s a 53 plate.

Also if you really want a full run down on what mine has had replaced with costs I’m happy to have a phone chat.

Hope this helps

Thanks for this, very much appreciated! I think I'm looking for an 05 onwards to be honest. The research I have done all seems to suggest that they are a much more sorted vehicle in terms of driveability and function. An 06 would be nice for the 6 speed gbx but I think they're out of my budget.

I may take you up on your kind offer however unless it's easier for you to simply type a few bullets in a PM? Whichever is easiest.

Hi Matthew

What are the main jobs would you say for a manual V70R ?

- Timing belt
- Service histtory for engine and haldex

Are there any others you would look out for?

Thanks to all who posted for your time and advice. I have looked at a few and now purchased what seems to be a fundamentally decent 2005 (registered on an 06 plate) silver with biscuit coloured interior. There's plenty of work to be done to get it where I want it but I've factored that in to the decision and purchase. First on the list is to get the language changed then for a major service including AWD system and gearbox.

I dare say you'll see me on the forums in the not too distant future picking people's brains for advice.
