    Only the 3rd 850 R I’ve seen in this country. Only wagon to, oddly. Childhood memories of whiplash and terror are all rushing back :pac:
    Ha ha did your father have one? This is an 850 T-5R, they were made only in 1995 and then the 850R came out in 96/97

    That's cool Dar. By any chance did I buy a B8 A4 TFSi off you about 5 years ago?

    Might try borrow one and give it a go, cheers.



    I have it about 10 months so I hope not :D I'm thinking of swapping it out after I renew the NCT though.

    Thought it was this one. Remembered the towbar on it

    Haha that's gas. Whatever happened the mad Toyota you bought? I sold the A4 to a mate who had it for a few years after. It was a good car. Bought a new Fiesta ST after that, then a mk7 GTD and now in a Golf R. I think I'll be keeping this one!

    I sold it about a year after. Was great in theory but couldn't leave it anywhere and was always paranoid about it. Ah that's good about the A4. Yeah I seen your posts about your Golf R. Looks like a beast. Best of luck with it.

    Thanks, still getting my bearings with it but very impressed so far.

    That 850R looks very similar to the one Jame May drove on the Top Gear Africa special a good few years back:

    That episode made me physically sick. In years to come when they are worth a bit that episode will be banned. Mine is a T-5R which has the 5 spoke wheels. 850R have different wheels

    Always liked them....

    Always loved getting to drive a Volvo as they were proper sleepers....

    Not all of course but use to get to drive lot in the trade and loved the turbo and power


  • Registered Users Posts: 16,771 ✭✭✭✭ MEGA BRO WOLF 5000


    I learned to drive in a Volvo 340 back in the day... and when I say learned to drove...I mean I learned how to do 70mph in a field and pull the handbrake. Always had a soft spot for them and always wanted one for real but it’s so hard get a “performance” one. The one above is perfect but so expensive!!


  • Registered Users Posts: 24,686 ✭✭✭✭ punisher5112


    I had a 1990 240GL had some great craic in it for a good few weeks of a summer on the farm....

    Took over 2 fields, absolutely destroyed them but it just kept going, kept it going with old used oil, rear wheel drive was such a laugh too.


    Pity a tree ended her life a little too early.... Don't know where it came out of but ramming a siera didn't help...

    Ha, well spotted but mines the 2.1 twin turbo.

    So we've only gone and bought a Skoda! A "lengthy" 10-12 week wait for collection but can't wait, never owned new before.

    Cheers man, said to myself if I ever went new... I'd make sure it was anti paddy spec and mandatory automatic.

    All well and good for the missus and the (soon to be 2) kids, I'll be in my Corsa to work during the week so it's more like a weekend car for me.

    Can barley see them but I got a set of Heko window visors fitted yesterday, it will probably be the only exterior mod I'll ever do. Loving the 320d power but would love a bit more, the auto box puts it out lovely though. Jumping between mine and the aul fellas I think his must of had a minor re-map by a previous owner at some stage, feels more nippier like a small petrol in the low rev range.

    Took a spin into Limerick Cars and Coffee Sunday after giving the car a good scrub. Great turn out as always but a bigger one this month, I think a lot of people are embracing dry January! I was really surprised at the attention the car gets, maybe its not as understated as I thought.

    A young lad with a fancy camera took this pic, managed to track me down and send it onto me couple of hours after the meet, kinda scary how easy he found me.

    Only 80HP more then your Golf Hooch and a much bigger Tax bill! Paint was flat as fcuk on this when I bought it but I'm working on it all the time. Thought hard about exporting it but taxed it for another 3 months last week.
