I'm a n00b to the Volvo community, but I'm quickly learning why there's so much love for these cars. Here's my S70 T5. I picked her up for $4k with 128k on the clock. She runs like a top, everything works, and I'm totally addicted to that 5-cylinder sound. Here are some pics that I took myself, I'm a bit of a photo freak.

I liked my 98 s70t5 till the first time I drove it in the rain. Need any parts? Let me know before mine gets crushed. I just had the windows tinted too.

Josh mentioned that you had one you were parting. I really just need interior parts, mainly seats, but I think you got rid of that stuff already.

Might be interested in the back seat. Is it tan w/ suede inserts?

Suede? I don't recall any s70s in the us that came with that other than a v70r and the import s70se

It's just tan.

Weird, mine has it. I think it was just on T5's, may have been an option, but I've seen a couple that have suede inserts.

I'll take some pics tomorrow. When I was looking at these cars before I thought mine, I saw two other S70 T5's that had the suede inserts too.

Nice S70 T5!

I have a S70 T5 as well, I don't think any S70 in the US came with suede from the factory. However, the 850Rs came with the suede inserts, that might be what you're thinking of. Someone probably swapped the seats from those for their S70.

Hmm, I went and took some pics of my interior real quick. These certainly look like they're the original seats. The guy I bought it from didn't mention anything about swapping them, and I definitely saw at least one other S70 T5 in person that had the exact same interior.

Huh that's odd your door panels arent coming apart. It's not a se because the door panels aren't suede either. Huh.

SE's don't have suede door panels. See the leather stitching on them? That's what the SE gets. Much better than a regular S70 vinyl crap that fall apart.

Hmm, ya that isn't the 850R interior, it must be the nicer trim level people mentioned earlier. Sweet.

Yeah I got lucky with the door panels, mine are in awesome shape. I've been told that's a very common problem. I just wish the seats were in as good of condition...
