Picture to come. This was in my 1988 244. I love this car and want to drive it another 200,000. I only put the last 48,000 on it, but I want to drive this car for a very long time. It was kind of cool seing the odometer roll over to 200,000! I will need to contact Volvo and get my 200,000 badge, hopefully I still can!

Got about 339,500 miles on the '83... Probably another 3 days, and it'll be at 340K... Original block and tranny. Head was replaced, due to broken studs on #4, and turbo was replaced, due to a crack on the previous unit, which lasted about 245,000 mi...

My odo just started moving again for the 2nd times since I bought the car. 1st time lasted 23 and 3/10ths of a mile before the cheapo speedo cable from groton busted. Shows 215k but is probably around 240-50k. Stock everything with exceptions being a VX cam and K&N air filter as far as I know.

I'm sitting at 259,923. Should hit 260,000 on Monday. Right now I'm driving about 5k a month, so I should be over 300k by Christmas.

It only comes on when I turn the headlights on, but there's no lights out, that I know of. Well, unless it counts dash lights.

it cant be a light out for the light out light, because then the light would be out

different bulbs, corrosion in bulb holders, anything that would create different resistance in circuits, or a bad relay itself
