Long weekend, for some

Here you can talk about the joy owning a Volvo 480 brings. Non-technical discussions take place here, like what is the difference between an ES and a S version.

Long weekend, for some

Post by Captain Slow » Fri Apr 22, 2011 3:06 pm

So, with all the bank holidays I wonder how many people are spending it looking after their 480's and how many are driving them?

Personally I'm on a 450 mile each way journey in it from St Andrews, down to Doncaster then Cromer/east anglia!

The CEM is above the handle for the hood release, behind the plastic cover.

I have vacation from my 480 :D

Turbo was reliable for half a year :shock: and get bored. As a result we have dead starter motor. A few days after passing the warranty period :kill:

Now car is in the workshop.

ES have small hole in coolant hose and no MOT :roll:

Now I'm forced to use v40 :cryhard:
