That was the rich's Dyno record holder 336.9 bhp, although usually more like 350-360, you can see my v70r and one of the t5r's in the back of the pic

It was worth more in parts than as a car (a lot more), I've broken 4 this year, I deal in Volvo parts as a byproduct of having my volvos, I.e ill buy a car for bits I need then sell off unrequired parts to cover costs.

Hence breaking the bx would be a real option, but ill probably put it back on the road if it doesn't sell.

Neighbours help usually and it's on drive and broken down and squared away in 2 days.

I usually strip interior, then drop front and rear subframe off the shell, then a hiab cranes it off, leaving running gear and I just store away,

So no real mess and its quick, It's easy for me as I work from home and have the daughter full time, where as most people have to do it in there spare time, so sometimes things drag on for them. Plus I have a 3 car drive which makes things easy.

I had a look today and its the front sphere thats causing the problem with leaking fluid, i tightened it as it was loose and the leak is now just a drip.

From speaking with Rich i guess the seal has gone, so nothing serious.
