Rear Cluster (o/s/r)for sale- £25 collected

I forgot I had this one in the loft! There's a hairline crack at the top front edge (depends on the light to see it) and 0.5cms chipped bit off the clear edge that sits next to the centre reflector, but there's no grey hazing. Otherwise sound. For sale due to eBay numpty £25 collected from Milton Ke...

Clear ones are on the right - 2 x rectangular "reflectors" and 2 x triangular indicator covers

Clear wing indicators and reflectors for sale

I just have one item to sell after my 480 went last month. These are the small plastic pieces that Joep Vrijling custom-makes for the front and rear wings - 2 x Rear wing reflectors (clear rather than orange) - 2 x Front wing indicators (clear ones again) The perfect final touch to match with the la...

Re: Immaculate pair of 480 rear clusters and new seals

Wasn't expecting an immediate response! If you could you PM me your email address I hope to photo tomorrow. They were brand new ones from Volvo fitted to a car that was scrapped not long afterwards. I looked long and hard to find them in this condition, and recently sold my 480 without fitting them....

Immaculate pair of 480 rear clusters and new seals

Just about as 'as-new' as you can get, with brand new seals (cost £40 made by Joep Vrijling in Holland) to go with them. Alternatively, Skandix in Germany are the sole supplier of new ones (without seals) for about £340 a pair. Selling for £220, no offers. Will email photos if you PM me with your de...

Re: O'no accident insurance.

Alex It's really worth dropping the hint to the insurance company that you would be interested in buying back from them (IF you can have repaired with used parts for what they will offer you). I did this earlier this year on a car in the family, and ended up with top money for mine plus money over o...

Re: values of 480's going up?

Not really.

Just sold mine and got three times what I paid for it .... which is less than half that I spent on it :nuts:

Spoke to a guy 'in the know' recently who reckons it will be 25 years after the last production date before they rise significantly in value. That's 2020.

Re: weather strips

That's a bit rubbish - I thought it was 15 years after the car was last made as a minimum, like Volkswagen-Audi still do.
Maybe its 10 or 12 years for Volvo ?

Re: weather strips

In 2011 I bought a couple for my 480. They were 30801209 / 537985 and 30801208 / 537929 Sealing strips at £20.40 each (£17+vat)
They have metal inserts so might need a decent small hacksaw and careful measurement. I used some clear silicon sealant to fix in place.

Re: Sell or Save?

A really personal decision to be honest. People will be split between cut your losses and scrap, keep forever and keep spending money on it, and getting the door fixed and car tarted up to sell at the minimum loss you can. I've had one for 4 years and spent * a lot * (and I mean a lot) of money on i...
