Check that the prop shaft bolts are tight, and snug up the crimp-clamp on the boot. Mine did this last year on the front yoke and the bolts had actually worked themselves a little loose.

So they seem to be tight, Oetiker clamp is as tight is it could be from what I can tell. Maybe clean and see if it comes back.

This is the worst location of the nitrogen reservoirs, you are constantly cooking them. I used my the same way until got recommendation by Thomas from TME Sweden, when ordered springs for ohlins road kit. That was the first thing he mentioned when discussed its adjustments and shoch damper settings

Not the first person to bring this up. 

Talking with Ohlins USA "I don’t really know of a max temperature, you would prefer to keep them as cool as possible. I would say just from my track experience to have the best performance keep them around 150 to 200 would be optimum.  "

Drivers side could be easily moved, the passenger side is harder to re-position though. If you figure out a spot to place them I'd give it a shot. 

I used the temp stickers and determined they reach about 180 in there after a long drive.

With some minor cutting, those cans could be hidden beneath windshield plastic, near cabin filter for passenger side, and side by side with fuse box for driver

have to balance the cost to rebuild with the enjoyment factor of seeing them though 🙂 

Was also thinking more on this and It's certainly interesting to debate. But my recent thoughts were, these are all probably made in a similar way right? N2 + some oil + magic? 

How do these fair then on a big sexy beast like this?

Small small dent but one that I always saw when getting in the car. Especially with the motion detected lighting in the garage always perfectly lighting it up. 
PDR guy did a great job.

      Here's the story behind my new-to-me 2000 V70 R. Its gonna be a long post, and picture heavy too!
      This thread will serve as a continuation of sorts of my 1999 V70 R build, which can be read here:
       
      The conclusion to that thread will come later this summer, as I will be pulling all the modifications of my 99 R, and transferring them to the 00 R.  Now, onto the details of my new Venetian Red 00 R!
      My friend sent me the for sale ad on Facebook:

      Here's a couple of the photos from the listing:


      After spending a few weeks negotiating with the seller, I bought a one way flight to Denver, packed some tools in my bag (I did, however, forgot to pack underwear ) and went to visit some friends before picking up a car and driving it 1900 miles across the country back to New York!!!
      I landed in Denver Friday evening (May 12) in the early evening.  While there, I got to check out the murals of the Denver Airport, and see all the other bits that are the basis for a long list of conspiracy theories.

      Here's how it sat when I picked it up from the seller at a shopping center a short walk from my friends apartment.

      Shortly after taking delivery of my R, I went on a hike in up Golden with my friends.  The views were stunning to say the least.


      After lots of fun touring around the Denver area on Saturday, I packed my stuff into the car and started driving back to NY on Sunday morning (May 14th) with plans to stop at my friend's place in Cedar Falls, Iowa.  Here are some photos from the drive Sunday.  Nebraska was wide open, flat, and very easy to drive through:


      Drove through miles of turbines in Iowa (despite the picture being of a singular turbine).  There's a Don Quixote joke here somewhere....

      Cruising towards Cedar Falls, Iowa and got to watch the sun set


      Sunday's drive was about 800 miles, which took about 12 hours, and the drive home was off to a great, relatively easy start.
      Here's how my car sat outside my buddy's place in Iowa on Monday morning

      When I left Iowa Monday morning, my destination was headed to Anthony's (@apeacock) house near Buffalo, NY.  Monday held about 850 miles of driving, which was about 13 hours of driving.
      Stopped for gas in PA.  I had a hard time with card reader on the pumps though....

      Made it to Anthony's around 10pm, took him for a quick test drive, and then face-planted into the extremely comfortable bed in his guest room.
      Monday morning before I left his house, Anthony took this photo of our wagons together

      Made good time on my way back to Troy on Tuesday morning - at this point, 300 miles seemed like a short drive to me   I got to enjoy some really nice views in the mountains in western NY:

      Here's how the odometer when I made it home:
       
      The entire trip was 1960 miles, and I managed an average of 26.8 mpg at an average speed of 70 mph.  All of this was calculated from the trip computer. 
      And here's how my two wagons sat when I got the office on Tuesday at noon:

      Earlier tonight I got it registered in NY, so now the build can begin.  Stay tuned, this should be a fun project and I'm very excited to get working on it

      T-5R Wagon (1995), black, automatic transmission, mostly original with a few moderate suspension upgrades. Approximately 175k, with careful and regular service. This was a California car for most of its life, and is (from best estimates) one of fewer than 100 still on the road in the U.S. It comes with: IPD 3" cat-back exhaust; 4 steelies with snow tires mounted; trailer hitch; original parts no longer installed; and your choice of body panels and parts from a 1995 black 850 NA wagon (parts car). I am a motivated seller and will take $3,000, for the next two weeks. Contact me and I'll answer all questions, to the best of my knowledge, and send any additional pictures that you may want. The car can be seen in Delaware, near I-95.
