5 months shopping, 5 days driving

Greetings from a reforming Volvo-lover and Land Rover dealership boat payment specialist. After searching for an E320 wagon for the last 5 months, I found one: older than I wanted, but lower mileage than expected. It's a '98 E320 4-matic wagon with 133,000 km (~83,000 miles). Five days of ownership so far, and it is proving a real pleasure to drive.

At the moment I'm trying to sort out the best iPod integration to use. Not having a rack of spare Becker head units at my disposal, I'm resisting the solder the motherboard trick mentioned here.

The forum has been helpful for months during my search - thank you. I look forward to being part of this community!
