My new DD(855 T5)

Sold my 940 in favour of this.
1994 Volvo 855 T5(222hp). Picked it up cheap and neglected. Gave it a quick wash, although it needs a wax job bad. Good things are, no rust, decent running condition, and Mint black leather interior.

Here are some things I took care of:
-Stage 0
-All new front bushings/ball joints/tie rods
-H&R Blue Lowering SPirngs-~1.5"
-Brembo cross drilled/slotted Rotors at all four corners. Performance brake pads
-De badged/blacked out grill
-Yellow High's
-225/16's Flaken Tires at all 4 corners
-Boost gauge(need to get it installed).

What I want to do in order, as soon as money allows (damn other project) .
-Remove muffler, replace section with straight pipe and get new exhaust tip.
-Tint all lights
-Re=spray the trim black
-Inmotion tuning(+55hp/trq)
-HID's, 6000K
-Tinted windows
-spoiler
-etc etc etc

On to the pictures.

Nope, they're the OE rims on the 850 Turbo Wagon as you can see on mine too

Great, now I have a potential autocrossing buddy

Yes, I am. Plenty.

Axxe. You are right. FWD FTL. 222hp(with ability for a lot more) FTW.

My G/F called me an old man several times already, before commenting on how nice the car looks.
It definitelly is unique, stands out, and I will definitelly bring that out to the meets or my dads, even faster, S70.
