Important Site Information
Sorry about the outage earlier. I was hoping to get lucky and not have to take site down, but updated to php needed an apache up-date and restart. Over the next few days I will be applying all of the updates I have been working on so expect a little site weirdness. If you have any bugs that persist after clearing cache of Volvospeed temp files, feel free to submit a bug report under the support tab at the top.
Some of these updates are moving towards upgrades I have planned for this server. I hope to have the site running mirrored on new box within a week or so. New box will be dual e5-1650s for those who care. That should help with server side a good bit, but main bottle neck is still i/o. I saw some black Friday sales pop up on drives and ram. If we can raise a little bit of money we can upgrade the SAS to RAID 10 which should help A LOT, donation link in sidebar. So if we hit our goal that is the plan. If we do not get close I will just throw another 16gb in the machine and increase cache threads. Either way, expect the site to be a lot faster in the next few weeks, and hopefully I have gotten to most of the bugs.

Wtb Ny: 2012+ S60 T5
I'm looking for a well taken care of '12+ S60 that is still under warranty, factory or CPO. I'd prefer a private party sale. Price range is under $25k with low 20's being the sweet spot.
Here's what I'm currently looking for:
T5 or T5 AWD Under 30K miles, still under factory or CPO warranty. Not Ice White, Caspian Blue, Vibrant Copper, or Flamenco Red. Beechwood or Off Black interior only. Premier + climate package minimum (leather and moonroof) A seller who can take the time to answer all of my questions using good English and is nice to work with. :-) My dream combo at the moment? Savile Grey/Electric silver w/Beechwood.
Volvo S70 T5M?
Found a '98 S70 T5M. 235K. $1900. Been told it runs in great condition. Cosmetics need a little bit of work.
I already own a '00 S70. Naturally aspirated. Automatic. Great condition all around. 138K. Should I buy this T5M or not? Should I combine my current S70 parts into this T5M and make one good car? And then sell the Automatic? Please let me know.
