I forgot, I have one of those covers too. I was going to try to fit it to the V70 but no such luck. Didn't expect to ever see one of those.

It was a stock fabric colour which happens to match the black/grey R-Sport covers. It's not an R-Sport one as such...at least not the ones I've seen, anyway.

Those lighted switches come in looooads of cars. 940s, 960s, 850, S/V40s, and (here) the 400 series. They are pretty sweet, though.

cheers

James

Yup...red piping and all. It's in the late accessories catelogue. There have been a few on eBay here...and I've never seen seat covers for sale here.

cheers

My 93 945T came with a stock towing kit. It had a stock trailer hitch (now sold), rear air shocks connected to an air compressor in the rear. I'll have some photos of the compressor soon and will be selling it off. The tail lights were recently replaced, but I had noticed that the passenger side had something weird going on as the following images will show:





The plastic over the bulb socket is part of the mold and not something glued in or attached in any way. There's no wiring routed to it either.



It's for sale too, so hit me up if you'd like it. The plastic bit can be routed out with a Dremel.

After a certain date, almost all cars only have one foglight. On cars previously equipped with both, one is blanked off. My Dad's 1998 940 is the same, as is my S70.

Why? Was it so that they don't get confused with brake lights?

probably.


i used to use the dual fog tail lights on my 740 to get people to stop tailgating. didnt have front fogs...just the rears, so when i flipped my switch, it looked like i hit my brakes, especially to someone whos RIGHT on my bumper.
i've thought about hooking it up in my 940 to have both, cause i miss that awesome feature.

I have a slotted K-cam. I had to ask like 7 different places before someone slot it. One place even offered to reshape the lobes of my slotted T-cam to make it into a K-cam, but would not just cut a slot in the K-cam...

Yeah, I imagine it's to stop being confusing fogs with brake lights. It looks rubbish, if you ask me!

What's up Yall?
Kinda new to TB. My ettiquette could use a lil port n' polish. Anyway...here goes!
I have a 1985 244ti (actually 1984.5) it's a canadian spec car with 228,xxx miles.
I guess my rare goodies, judging from everyone else's responses, are a 5 bar oil pressure gauge, oil temp gauge, Group A wing, decor panel, front & rear fog switches...I used to have an eggcrate turbo grill until 1-18-08 approx 8:30pm when I ran over it accidentally. Will I have to fab a new one? It will have to depend on whether or not I can find another...can anyone help?

Give a Brother with a Brick a Break!

A 1983 242 full euro spec with B21ET (not sold originally in Belgium)
A 1990 740 with B204GT
A 1993 960 with B204FT.

No rare accesoires though. Had a set of Polaris rims but they didn't fit because of the IRS on the both the 740 and 960.
