    Trains, food, Volvo. And finding tunnels to floor it in. .
  1. Hi chaps, Got a couple more bits up for grabs. Mint condition XC90 4 spoke steering wheel in black leather, no airbag or buttons, but the horn/internals are there. Completely mint condition from a 2011 car, as new. £20 2006 S60 airbag, black 3 spoke. Fits all S60s and some XC90s. Mint £15.00 Plus postage or free collection.
  2. Hi chaps, I'm swapping to XC90 336mm fronts and XC90 rear brakes within the month. So my existing 320mm setup will be up for grabs (I'll throw in the standard rear callipers too if the buyer wants them). This is for the callipers and carriers as removed, the discs have minimal life left and will go for scrap. Removed from a 2.4T5 with 79k on the clock, very good condition. Will be available in around 4 weeks. £150 posted, or welcome to collect as they're rather heavy!
  3. Pair of mint condition 2006-8 S60, 2008-12 XC90 facelift sport buttons with the silver trim. Straight swap into all steering wheels with these buttons from earlier cars, so all P2 S60, and V70R steering wheels aswell. Nice easy upgrade. Standard controls with cruise, no phone. £35 posted
  4. Has anyone had their steering wheel re trimmed on here? I've acquired a knackered 2008 S60 sport wheel, but Royal steering wheels have refused to do it because 'It's too complicated', fair enough. Just wondering if anyone on here knows any other companies that are good. (or has a wheel that isn't knackered) lol
  5. Bump
  6. Any chance of contacting said friend with lights would be much appreciated ?

      Always limited - especially as Tim Williams is about to do a head gasket for me - Dunno what to offer really - Would love it to only cost £100 but imagine it will be more. If you could ask for me ...

      He wanted £350, but one of the lenses had gone so I said no! To be brutally honest id buy them in bits from volvo to spread the cost. They're all getting tired now so unless theyre a bargain it's not worth it. £60 indicators and £180 headlamps from FRF with discount. Each..

      Ok thanks for asking ...I will keep looking


  7. They work, worth every penny. Secondhand will usually be knackered. New they're £190 per lamp, and £65 per indicator. I may have a friend with a full used set in decent condition..
  8. Has anyone got a steering wheel from a 2007-8 S60 sport? Black, three spoke with the little silver inlay in the bottom. Preferably with airbag and must have satnav controls. Found on higher spec 2007-10 XC90s I think too, but I can't currently find one breaking. After a bit of poking around on the net I've found they're (99% sure) interchangeable with my '06 V70 which has the almost identical wheel to a 2005 volvo/scania bus. lol want rid of it for something nicer! Never liked the standard V70 steering wheels. Also after the two Black (not dark grey) steering column cover panels for S60/V70 if anyone has those. And a pair of S60/V70R interior front door handles. Not sure about colour option on those tbh just let me know what you've got
  9. Rare as hell. New they're around £400 i think
  10. Ah yeah! These aren't in too bad condition but still refurb fodder.
  11. I've decided to let go of my set of 18" genuine BBS Nebulas. Bought them a year ago after hunting for over a year for a good set to have refurbished, and all they've done is sit in the garage (in the warm and dry). No tyres, and in need of a cosmetic refurb. Minor kerbing but the main issue is flaking paint around the edges and on the barrels, a trip to TWS the wheel specialist or similar will make them better than new and this was my plan, but I need the money for other things now so they've got to go. Collection preferred from Derbyshire, but PM me if you're interested. £350
  12. Thanks, that seems to be the exact problem. I'll try that first as it'll cost me nothing!
  13. Right, absolutely ridiculous problem.. Got back into the car at the petrol station and the key would only insert into position one. Positions two and three are mechanically locked out and the key will not budge more than the first position. So, car has been recovered to my driveway by dragging it on and off the recovery truck (car was stuck in park) which seemed really bad. Anyway, I've tried grease, spray lube to no avail. Obviously there has been a mechanical failure with the tumblers or similar. Has anyone ever had this and sorted it out? Terrible timing.
