Re: Help me choose a wheel colour

Silver for me too! Looking forward to seeing what the Volvo Forumists have to say on the matter. :shock: :lol: How many limbs is this exercise setting you back Welters?

Re: Undecided

Hello Highroller, The HPi Executive Estate that Jasper rescued and subsequently passed on to his brother was mine. I bought it 6 months old in summer 2002 and ran it for 10 years, it's a wonderful car. It was very reliable but suffered the odd niggly electrical issue with sensors etc, the only reall...
