          some vinyl/carpet dye spray i found at local autozone.

          the carpet really soaked it up, took 2 whole cans to get it dark black and all even. cost about $10 for both cans.

          came out really nice. i'll post before/after pics in a bit. last coat is still drying.

                Still doing the m1.3 b23, but I'm not letting that 885 head go for a penny less than what it's posted at, r3vvers are cheap, it's not going anywhere I thought it might be fun to build a carb'd 2.7 and drop it in an e21 or 2k2

                Edit or maybe the 5er.....

                              Yeah guys, it's my car. I think the price isn't too ridiculous seeing what other people ask. considering the engine only has 57,XXX miles on it, I think it's a fairly reasonable price. I'm open to trades and other offers; I just thought this was a good starting point. Especially considering I see cars not anywhere this clean that are only M50 swapped go for like $8,500 sometimes on R3V. But if some people are stupid enough to think that the Volvo lip devalues the car and negates S50 swap costs, that's not my problem. I've already gotten 2 very tempting offers on it just today. But thanks for the constructive criticism, I appreciate it. And Wschnitz, you have no idea what you're talking about. You've never seen the redrill before, and the wheels are totally fine. I'd like to think that I have a little more knowledge than you do about my car for one good reason: 1) It's my car. But anyways, thanks for the words. I'm sure it'll sell for a reasonable price soon.

                                the car looks clean in general. good luck on the sale.

                                why are you selling it? just curious. i'm currently rebuilding an s50 to swap into my e30.
