Volvo 850 T5-R GENUINE UK Manual Original unmolested estate

Took me ages to find a UK manual one of these – didn't want an auto, nor an import.

This is the real deal (not just a T5 or R, but the T5-R).

During my ownership (since Aug 2016) the car has had over £6k spent on it at performance Volvo specialists (who know the T5-R inside-out) and Volvo main dealership for my peace of mind and wanting it perfect, so it's pretty much worry-free inc. new cambelt, new brake rotors and pads, new gear cables, new fuel pump, new radiator, new starter motor, new ignition coil, new battery, new airmass metre, new HT leads, new turbo control unit, new silicon hose set, new X4 Michelin Pilot Sport 4, etc. etc. (I've got the bills)

I purchased the car having loved them since launch, but now living in a 20mph zone (and getting points for 24mph) next to the ULEZ in London + my parking permit going up – unfortunately it's time. The vehicle is currently in dry storage at my father's in Hertfordshire.

As you can see, as much as I love it, it's really not getting driven as much as desired:
2016 146,131 miles
2017 148,224 miles
2018 148,662 miles
2019 149,402 miles
2020 149,839 miles

Items to note (that weren't important to me):
Air-con requires new compressor (£50 used/ £200 new)
Rear plastic number plate trim has some paint flaking (not expensive)
Front n/s seat has a cut to it's reverse, only visible to rear passenger
External matt bumper trim to treat
Front n/s window sometimes slow, have new motor but not had fitted
I've had X2 of the wheels refurbed so they're mint (fitted to o/s)
Pioneer headunit with touchscreen, bluetooth, lightning cable
Stainless exhaust fitted by previous owner
