Nice car and a great thread

What bulbs did you replace the indicators with, normal Orange coted bulbs or the Diadem/Silvatec bulbs?

Just read all the updates there, and you've really resurrected the big Swede. It'll last for years now. Great work.

Will your mum be keeping it?

Just standard orange bulbs, got them for free at work so no complaints here!

Well I will be starting a new thread soon for what I will be driving next, job related, so will make a bit more sense as for the swap.

But for the foreseeable future the car will be staying and even when my Mum wants to change I think I would like it back. For the cost of the car, comfort, power and reliability considering the age and miles I'm not sure it would be worth selling financially. I only covered 2700 miles in the 4 and a bit months I owned it and it sat around for 6 weeks. Its cost me just over £1700 and I stand in at around £0.63 PPM. So hopefully my Mum will do a few motorway trips up north and get some use out of it and bring some value back to the car.

Sorry to resurrect this but I loved following this thread and it in turn made me go out and get one of these big swedes for myself!

In all my 30 odd years of owning cars, Volvo has never been in the list, but I do admire their build quality and engineering.
