Re: Is anyone still alive ;-?

I am truly saddened by this, he will be missed. He helped me so much, my 340 would not be anywhere as complete and working if it were not for mac. You will be missed. If my memory is working correctly i’m still about - older, crumblier and much grumpier. Mac (I think). We are still here, my dearest ...

Re: Duchess The Volvo 340 CVT

I've put it: here . It now has some tweaks that should improve it a bit and has been virus-checked! It took 1.5 hours to upload to Google Drive after midnight, so I would allow a similar amount of time for downloading and it'll probably take about the same amount of time to unzip it!

Re: New 340 owner

Hey folks... Just thought I'd say hello.
