Look for the lens flare in the last photo. It's there, and it's in a hilariously coincidental spot. I only noticed it b/c I walked away from my laptop, and saw the screen from a crazy angle.

Sweet looking car, too. :-D

WOW, that's a great car, I'm so jealous. Good thing it's not a 5-Speed though or else it'd be missing in the morning.

Enjoy it, that's a great car!

well, the way my dad explains it, he basically took the money out of my college/post college money that my parents have set aside for me, which is fine by me, as tuition is taken care of by bright futures scholarship

Changers are key, the Bertone has a 10 disc one. It's really nice to just switch around without taking your eyes off the road

Nice car btw, I love 8 series wagons, and the turbo makes it all the better


on an unrelated note, theres a Volvo specialist shop near me run by an idiot. He got a Volvo 850 turbo in, same color, same wheels, and claimed it to be an R. Also claimed that his new set of Volans he got in were from a t-5....he also wanted to remove my anti-lock brakes unit, because he claimed it was aftermarket. I don't know why I mentioned this all, but your new car reminded me of his new "R" :rofl:

In my own defense I think a race is now in order. It's my job to make sure F+T defeats "down payment."

PS, allow me to act the statesman. Nice car. I'd take it.

Hehe, nice ride. Just got a 95 850 turbo sedan for my sister. (i cant believe its my sisters car) 6 months looking and found it at a dealer. All i had to do was serivce the trans and A/C. I love my 765 dont get me wrong, nothing wil replace it. But that FWD brick is pretty trick. Everytime i make a wide left and punch it (bone stock mind you), and let it light up those 16's i think to myself..This is my sisters car!!?? Its as fast as my car!! well, wel will just have to fix that now wont we.

Cab-forward design! Wouldn't trade it for the world!

I'm joking... But traction isn't that big a problem. Multiple people have gotten 2.1's with regular old joe schmo tires... The handling isn't too bad for a FWD boat either.

Christ, quit looking at the car long enough to ogle the young lady's nether regions like the ditry old bastards in the thread.

Nice car, we got a 855T5 a few months ago, and really like it. The 5 cylinder has a sweeeet growl. I was in love at first boost.

Fantastic. I bought an 850 wagon about two weeks ago too.
Do you guys actually have them in the US with 'T5' badging or were they all (with the obvious exception of the T5R) sold as '850 Turbos'?

I bought a 1995 850 T5 here in Australia, very similar, 6 stack cd, electric sunroof, traction control, climate control, leather, same wheels, slightly different bumper bar with factory driving lights (but not the R type), headlight wipers, with 176000kms.

Im now curious to hear what the subtle differences are.

Anyway, enjoy your new toy. It will be ideal for hauling around 240 parts.

Cheers,
Ash

Eric, is the car in the pic yours?
Have you removed all of the mudflaps?
If so do you have a side on pic? Im contemplating doing this to the T5 i recently bought and am still undecided as to whether it will look any good.

Cheers,
Ash
