This 850 was actually very similar to my car when it was in stock form. Mine has a 2.4 and a five speed. This car gives me some ideas, but don't tell my wife!

It's ok. It is all flash and no dash.

I like the black grill in your car.

I don't know about the orange paint, but I like it all the same. The wife has given me pretty much the go-ahead on some mods, I think the wheel and spring upgrade is in the near future. I have the 98 V70, basically the same engine just different body. I didn't notice what was different under the hood to give it a boost, i was too distracted by the color scheme on the valve cover. Which wheels do you think were on that 850? 17s?
I like the front bumper on your s70 (s70driver) I may want to put that one on my v70, i think it would give it a bit of flair, and probably some downforce too.
Cool video nonetheless, everybody thinks i'm nuts to want to mod a wagon, but i think they are cool, plus they ride great.
