    Lowest Mileage 850 T5-R in the UK

    Any idea what the lowest mileage 850 T5-R is in the UK?

    Gul Yellow in particular. Assuming to be honest.
    Volvo 850 T5-R (Gul Yellow) 1994

    My old Gul dropped from 239k to 158k due to a new clock, but still well above the lowest...........

    There a few below 160, but still not too bad for its age. If anything the colour coded bumpers would most likely put purists off.

    Well its 159k to be exact and well she's good enough for what i paid for her. Might respray her and stick her up for some silly amount bearing in mind she is a lowish owner car and has enough service history and receipts to stretch to Vegas LOL

    I'd grab trims to put back to original, buyers seem to prefer that, but with a good history it always helps, you should do ok if your selling.

    19k seriously? That is just over 1k a year. I'm all for low mileage cars but surely there is a point where mechanically it's better to have a car that is used more regularly. Use it or lose it?

    It's sat in a heated garage with a RS200, Lancia Stratos, intergrale Evo2, plus many more. His daily was a ferarri 458 last time I spoke to him.

    I'm hoping my garage will be heated in the next year or two, I think the Gul and V70R will deserve a little warmth in the winters

    Current Volvo's 1995 854 Gul T-5R 1996 855 Olive T-5R 1997 855 Olive AWD 1999 V70R AWD and 2005 XC90 D5 AWD
    Previous Volvo's 1987 745 gle 1989 745 GL 1995 855 Olive GLE 2001 V70 p2

    The only way I'll get a heated garage is if I am living in it

    There was about a year ish ago a company near me in sussex with a showroon display a gul 855 which had 9k on it and they had no intention of selling it so assume it still there (if company is) and they were looking for other low mileage examples ...
