Since this is one of the only forums I bother looking at anymore, and just happens to have the largest collections of Volvos, I thought I'd share a full thread of my latest acquisition with you lot. So if you look into my deepest, darkest history on here you'll see I have a Toyota GT86. And whilst its a great car, I wasn't enjoying my new commute in it. Besides the fact it isn't that great for long mileage, I also started associating the car with a boring daily drive rather than something fun to enjoy at the weekends. So, enter this. £650 of Volvo. It's done 175k, is a 2.5 TDI with an Auto box, and just about everything works. The only issues I've discovered since picking it up last week are "meh" in my eyes: Faulty thermstat, so it runs cold. Noisy wheel bearing, and the fact it seems to have too much oil in it. I also seem to be doing only about 30-35mpg, although that may just be a rubbish trip computer as my calculations seem to give it a 45mpg average. But oh well! Serves its purpose, and its nice not having to refill the tank 3 times a week! (GT86 is fairly frugal, but has a shot glass for a fuel tank) Anyway, here's it in all its glory.

And thats about it really. Before anyone asks, the previous owner put the coilovers on it. I think it looks alright, but is rather bouncy. So I'll probably use this thread to document its life. So if any of you out there want to get involved in some Shed-esque activities, you can use this thread as reference for "Reasons not to be so foolish". As for the GT86, well I'm either going to keep it and sharpen it up a bit (Coilovers and the like, since I don't have to worry about every day comfort). Or maybe chop it in for something a lot more silly.
