Goes alright, smooth power. Bit big though and can't say I'm keen. Doesn't help that I was driving on back roads in the pitch black with wet roads. It will do for now though. Rather be driving than biking in the rain!

Went on the motorway with it for the first time yesterday and it managed 43mpg. Has good mid range too. Checked the engine code and turns out its a 170, I thought it was a 140 for some reason.

I know its only a 500 runaround, but the worn leather on the gear gaitor and arm rest were annoying me. Replaced the gear gaitor and broke the pin securing the gear knob in place so thats now loose But I'm not looking forward to replacing this -

Probably needs an old-school Cellnet sim

Tbf Marc, i'm surprised you haven't had a play with it; it would have been one of the first things i'd have done if i had an in-car phone

I only have an iPhone sim, otherwise i would have!

Only got the sat nav working the other week! TV pops up out of the dash board and the screen has been taken out and a sat nav unit put in its place. Not designed for it so was dificult finding the on button.

Is the Sat Nav unit a Volvo unit or is it an aftermarket job?
