  1. I have reluctantly decided to sell my 17" Propus (BBS X spoke split rim) alloy wheels to clear some space. (alloys only, no tyres) The wheels were originally fitted to my C70 which I bought with 70,000 miles on the clock and that's what the wheels have done. The only reason I took them off is that I personally didn't prefer them to the Canisto, despite it being a sought after wheel. Threads showing the wheels upon purchase; Purchase & Enhancements These wheels have never been repaired or painted and are true and round. There is the odd most minor odd mark (look closely at the pictures) but, for a used set of wheels, they are very good and highly presentable! Not the usual kerbed, marked and pitted/peeling wheels which are common to see. Pictures before they were removed from vehicle; (notice the minor bubble by the valve below on this one) (one more minor bubble by the valve on this one) (minor subtle paint chip under the 225.45.17 print on the one below) Taking into the account the highly presentable condition without the need of a costly refurbishment, £280 Collection/Delivery Only From : : Nottingham / Slough / Windsor
  2. Hello all, I've spent the summer working on my "new" 855 platinum. For those who don't know the platinum or "tla" was an anniversary trim option volvo offered in 1996 for the US market. Something like 500 of the wagons (estate) were made and they are distinguishable by the 3 tone metallic pearl paint, persus rims and fully loaded interior. So far I have done a major suspension overhaul, in the midst of completing stage 0, and planning for a transmission swap in the next year or two. The goal for this car is to find a balance between speed and comfort, practicality and fun, while maintaining a clean yet subdued look. Build Thread: DSC04533.jpg DSC04608.jpg New tires The biggest issue I have right now is the way my tires and suspension have worked out. I am happy with the Eibach + FSD route - comfortable stability that looks pretty good. I bought 215/55 16"s as I was told there is minimal interference with the body. My experience has been different as the tires will rub on big bumps where the front bumper meets the metal wheel arch. This has been a giant pain that may end up costing me a bunch of extra money. It's possible the FSD's are too soft... oh well. Happy to be a part of the community!
  3. For sale is my beloved Volvo V70 R FWD Manual 7 seater in Saffron. 187003 miles with lot of receipts and history New discs and pads on the back , new cv boots , new front bottom arms, new battery ,new wipers and will have a fresh 12 months mot on by next week. Has forge dump valve ,forge silicone pipes with huge filter piped into the bumper , hardpipe install intercooler kit. Bodywork is in great condition, has a tiny dint in the n/s/r door and a scrape on the front n/s bumper and rear o/s bumper and a mark on the bonnet. The usual wear and tear on the front end form stone chips but nothing major. The interior is in fantastic condition and has the diamond stitching on the half leather electric heated seats. I installed the Volvo 7 seat conversion In the boot which is ideal for smaller children. It has 18" alloys on with low profile tyres on that still have a decent bit of tread left on them. Only bad bits is the abs and traction control don't work but this is my 3 red Volvo that didn't have that working. It's usually the abs sensor on the wheel. Also not sure about the cruise control will have to check. This is a quick car, standard power is 250 bhp 350 nm on these cars and with the mods its poss pushing 260+ The last owner claimed it had a Ricca 310 bhp ecu fitted but I have no proof of this and I have had a 310 bhp T5 and it felt quicker than this although that had an electronic boost controller fitted. Anyway this is a well looked after classic car that is getting harder to find. I am located in Denton m34 postcode Manchester viewing is welcome May px for sports bike either straight swap or cash my way such as gsxr 750 R1 or open to offers or Dj equipment WHY but no cars

  5. Paid a visit to Shark Performance last Saturday for a full service and was so impressed that I decided to return yesterday for some tuning and styling. The customer service is absolutely top notch, made me feel very at home and answered all of my questions in maximum detail (there was a lot of questions). Really dedicated in setting the car for my needs and getting the job done right. I went for a milltek cat back exhaust, stage 1 remap, bilstein coilovers and rota wheels and my god what a difference it has made! The torque is unbelievable!
