When you spot a 480 and wonder if it's someone from the forum: ask it here! One rule: do NOT post registration plates.

that rear arch looks a bit squiffy, but nice to see another one out there.

Nice to see one out being used - I have still never seen another one on the road (except once in Bosnia, also my discovery of the 480)

Afraid I don't like the wheels, they don't complement the car's shape, much like the celeb wheels, they just don't fit the car for me

Nice spot though!

You mean the 15" Cetus alloys?


They were sold here in NL with model year 1995 480 2.0 in ES trim, unless you really wanted the poverty spec, then you got 14" steel rims with plastic covers. GT trim (which is different from the UK GT trim) got Taurus as standard. Vesa was optional and is very much sought-after in this part of the world, Vega rims with their metal hub caps is almost the Holy Grail of unobtainium.

Present cars: 1994 Volvo 480 GT 2.0i Vase Green, 2010 Volvo V70 2.0F Momentum Mystic Silver
Past: 1981 Talbot-Matra Murena 2.2 Rouge Mephisto, 1995 Volvo 480 GT 2.0i Paris Blue
