    Haynes says 30k for a 850, prob same for V70. I'm sure my Volvo specialist does them at 20k though.

    Check vs change! Change is 30k AFAIK. Check, every time you service?

    Mine went off at about 20k. Car was spluttering during high speeds. A change of plugs (Volvo Turbo Originals) solved all that. Will be going for DENSO Iridium Tough or Racing next.

    I've got a set of Volvo Turbo plugs - are they worth the money ?

    I'm currently using NGK Iridium, but they will be coming out at 100k and the Volvo Plugs will be going back in.
