Yes I think it would have to be the D5 185 and auto if poss, but not essential.  :)

I like the idea of the remap!  :y

How many pit ponies does your BMW have.......when working? ::)

190bhp.  But it's been chipped/remapped or something and it shifts!  :y

If looking at an auto try to find out if/when the 'box fluid was changed,they take different[more expensive] fluid to the Dexron stuff the Omega uses.Rear suspension should be self levelling using Nivomat dampers which are expensive but owners on the forum say they can safely be changed in ones as opposed to in pairs,or of course like the Omega can be changed to "ordinary" dampers and springs.XC70 while essentially the same car sits higher and is the AWD version.

Not really, as long as you’re willing to travel there are plenty of XC70s - mostly in Jockistan  ;)

Ahh. Essentially the same car though, just the XC version has more rugged looking bumpers etc

As is always the case, they’ve mostly been to the moon and back at least once ::)

Thar do 8)

I was watching a manual D5 AWD V70 of '55 vintage on ebay a while back, went for about £350 with a gear selector issue... They're rare, but more common than FWD XC70s, which also exist, although most of these are the 2.0 diseasal ;)

AWD S80 is a very rare beast, but could be worth seeking out for a best of both car 8) again more likely to be plod or v8  :D

FTFY LD.  :)

I find the fact that there are so many about with interstellar mileages oddly comforting strangely enough.  :-\  ;D
