Did you make that grille? If project stuff is still on the table you definitely won't regret the M90. It turned my 944T into an actual fun car versus the somewhat dull taxi it was before. I wish I had a less aggressive rear axle, though.

I did not make the grille. I'm on the fence about putting a 5-speed in this turd because right now it's my only automatic transmission vehicle, and it behaves just fine.

At the moment I'm working in Fairbanks - got this text from back home:



edit: have another hatch (grey), wondering if it's easier to paint and swap a hatch ($not much + labor) or find replacement glass

Finding a rear window for my car that someone was willing to ship was a huge pain, but that was new/on insurance's dime. It ended up coming from a dealer all the way in Minnesota and took about a month.

Call local glass companies (local to the car, not to you). I had a similar issue on my 2004 V70R (rock kicked up by a bro truck when my wagon was parked at a tire shop). Glass company had OEM glass panels going back to the early 70's for Volvo out of a Phoenix warehouse. Cost to the insurance company ended up being less than $200. Well worth it IMO.

Thank you guys. Just liability on the car so the cost will be out of pocket. I might step up my game and do a special Hagerty (or whatever, using state farm at the moment) policy on the car in case dumb **** like this happens again in the future, since the wagon pool is drying up rapidly.
