Where can i find some cheap Volvo 850 T-5 performance bits
basicly im looking for a T5 coz all my mates say its a old mans car (semi-true coz it is a volvo) and i just want to see there faces when i drive by laughin
P.S and no they dont drive corsa's novas and saxos. try nissan 200sx s13 1.8T, a supercharced festa ST, integra DC5 and DC2and many more fast cars
I'd go to www.ipdusa.com for volvo parts. But I'm guessing you are in the uk or thereabouts based on what your friends are driving. also an 850 is waaaaay better compared to your buddies cars imo, 850 will have a better feel and style.
you can also try eurosporttuning.com. i went there and they have decent prices and good service.
I don't know about the 850 T5 being an old mans car. I would think of it more as a Old Sleeper, those are capable of some very respectable numbers out of a station wagon. As far as cheap goes, I don't think thats a good path to follow with that vehicle. The T5 is starting to become a bit of a collectors item, the people who have them like them and never want to sell them. But, your best bet would be ipdusa.com, those guys know their stuff.
cheers guys many thanks
Ipdusa.com is a good source for parts
i think you wrong about that. anyway, best source for parts is Swede, hands down. use www.blocket.se, select stockholm, and just search for t5 remember that +46 is the country code.

TRY EBAY FOR GOOS SECOND HAND PERFORMANCE PARTS THERES ALWAYS SOMETHING ON THERE
Sweden is the best place to get parts, yes. But shipping to the USA is the killer.
