That is true. The car shown in the pic, however, was built during their ownership. Doesn't have the black mouldings of the early S80 models.

They are yeah, 15x7 Weds Bavaria fins in 5x108 with 205/55/15/ Direzzas, I like smaller wheels, and when I had the tires off the rims for refurbishing I weighed one at 13.8 lbs on my bathroom scale, not bad at all.

Back to the E-codes in the 245.



242 with the Yakima rack installed. Needed to get the rack out of the way, so threw it on the roof of the 242. Gave me an opportunity to replace the mounting hardware for the basket with some NOS hardware I picked up from ReRack on eBay.

A few days later... Just the usual walkaround of the car, at Marymoor Park in Redmond, WA. Photos are from the 23rd, so pics were after last Sunday's wash.




My car is probably 30 years older than the other three vehicles shown in this shot.
