  3. Iain, good to see the R this morning, the car is a credit to Nick - it's immaculate and sounded fantastic as you drove up the approach road to the car park!
  4. Ashok, I'm sorry - due to circumstances outwith my control I cannot attend. PM sent. Iain
  5. Edit due to double post!
  6. Hi, I have a 7.0 Comet in silver bright in very good condition.PM me and I can arrange getting it to you. cheers
  7. Driver's side headlight for a 2004 V70R wanted! Cheers
  8. It's a pity that this didn't work out, it looked like a good solution at first! Hope that you get a buyer for your T5 exhaust!
  9. Sounds interesting!
  10. Hi Hedley, not heard of this car up in Scotland! The best of luck in finding out about this R. I agree with yosser, after all you know more than most about Rs having had a V70R from new!
  11. Hi, my '03 S60's boot lock stopped unlocking and could only be opened with the key. I took the car into an auto electrician and he found that it was the lock itself that was faulty. As a temporary solution he has somehow disconected the boot lock solenoid from the main circuit and the lock now locks and unlocks as normal, however the boot light does not come on when I open the boot with the handle.
  12. Hi, have a look at the first post as a new discount for parts has been negotiated: "It is inevitable that the parts and servicing discount scheme I negotiated years back will also come to an end, but I’m pleased to say that I’ve managed to negotiate a new scheme with Simon Chiu who is now the aftersales manager at City Motors Volvo in Bristol - parts sales, in particular, appear to be far more competitive. Servicing appointments at City Motors Volvo can be booked by contacting Simon on 0117 9723030. If anyone is after parts quotes, please contact me directly by PM."

  14. Thanks for letting us know. Wishing Tony all the best in his new job at Kings- he will be an absolute asset to the garage.
  15. Hi, I have a boxed silver bright 7.5 Comet in excellent condition as well as a 7 silver bright 0 Comet if they are any use to you as I see that you're looking for a full set, these alloys are both good alloys to have in reserve because of their good condition! Cheers Iain
  16. Max, what car is it for? I have a new one for a '98 S70/V70 somewhere.
  17. The standard Volvo air filter seems to be the best choice as it's well up to the job!
  18. Hi, just to let you know that the advanced chassis setting is not green but amber (red?). Sport and Comfort should be green - the amber serves as a warning, that's why it's a different colour! So should have nothing to worry about!
  19. Has anybody used this company's caliper paint? I want high-temperature paint that matches my R calipers: http://www.brake-caliper-painting.com/high_temperature_brake_caliper_paint.html Cheers
  20. Thanks for the info guys.
