      This weekend was a bitter sweet one with the W124 going to a new home it was the ideal excuse to take the 850 out since it is just back from having a timing belt, water pump and cam and crank seals (not leaking but made sense while belt was off). Belt was said to be done 15k miles ago but couldn't find a receipt of the work so for peace of mind had it done using all genuine parts.

      ​​​​​Had to take a picture while it was parked at slane Castle today...... Definitely a car that makes me take a second glance when walking away from it 😂

        Have just been putting up miles on the 850 lately and it has just clicked over 160k. Had a rattle coming from the rear and discovered one of the rear pad retaining clips missing so replaced the clips and pins and while I was there cleaned the wheel arches.

        Really solid underneath and has been undersealed before but might go full hog on cleaning the underside and have it minty fresh but I'll wait until I take it off the road for the winter.

          Lovely looking car Marko!

          I spotted a lovely '00 reg S70 T5 in traffic today & then learned that not all T5s are 2.3L, this one was 2L. The estate gets all the touring car cred, but I always liked the saloon, theres something nice about the proportions

          I remember a smashing yellow 850 T5R saloon with dark grey wheels knocking around the place when I was in school. My dad had a 460 at the time. This particular T5 looked like it was turned up to eleven. Which it was really!

            Cheers its definitely a keeper. I do love the saloon but it was always the estate that I wanted. Took it to work today to give spice up the commute......sun shining, 5 pot sound track..... bliss 😊
