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.

KGF Celebration

Post by doingitsideways » Thu Jun 18, 2020 6:44 pm

So, the recent KGF Celebration is now in a video by one of those annoying youtubers.

The presenter gets on your nerves almost instantly, but it does show the car in a non-showroom lighting situation.

Those rear lights look they've seen better days, obviously better than many, but for a getting on for £5k price tag?
(heard he didn't pay £5k for it, but how much less I've no idea)

Also, claims to be all original paint.
Guess he didn't test the front bumper then lol

Thoughts?

Hammers can't fix a 480!!!

I have mixed thoughts on that one myself - I understand why the buyer wanted it but equally I'd love to know what he actually paid for it!

If you search you'll find a thread where we were "analysing" that particular car, and the missing black stripe was something I picked up on with Jeff: as you say, something's been done to that front bumper...

If you're lining up to be a seller I guess seeing pressure on values is a good thing - it's what we've all been saying needs to happen. But it's such a mish-mash at the moment - quality cars for not a lot of money, rubbish being offered at premium prices :crazy:

I thought as youtubers go, He was alright, and he seemed not to slag the car off, which was a welcome attitude :D
