Thought I d start a project thread for my newly acquired V70, I was in need of a 7 Seater car for my ever growning family and couldn't find anything even vaguely interesting amongst all the Ford Galaxies and Zafiras. I had seen a view v70s with seats in the boot so decided that was the way forward, I knew I wanted a T5 after doing my research and I found this old girl on ebay for £895, four hours on the train and £850 later she was on my drive, with a full service history, and 12 months MOT.
I m not at all put off by its 204k mileage, it autobox is silky smooth and it drives like a 50k car, I may remap it, not sure if such a high mileage car is worth it yet.
I spent today fitting the seats in the boot, another ebay find for £100 delivered, one of the seatbelts appears to be knackered so I m on the hunt for one of those.
Theres not really alot that needs doing to the car, its just been serviced and has new brakes so I m mainly going to be concentrating on cosmetics for now. I m currently looking at lowering it a bit more (looks like its already a bit lower than normal? I m not sure can anyone tell?) and I m looking at options for alloys too.
More updates coming soon!
