1997 Volvo 850 T-5

I currently have a 1995 Volvo 850 Turbo Wagon with 118k on it. The car is
almost perfect in everyway. I am wondering about going to a 1997 Volvo 850
T-5 Wagon with 149k. Any suggestions if this would be a good move. Is the
quality in one year better than the other? Is the T-5 a low pressure turbo?
If so, does that make it more reliable? Do they have the same power? The
T-5 seems to be in the same conditon as mine, what price difference should I
pay, approximately (Cdn$)?
Any suggestions or information appreciated.
Doug

The rest of the world called the 850 Turbo "850 T5". In North America
the 850 Turbo became the 850 T5 in 1997. So these 2 cars are basically
the same, same power, same suspension, I don't see any benefit to you.
You have a car with lower mileage, that you know the history of, that's
"almost perfect in everyway." You end up with a car that's OBD-II
compliant, where you need a special tool to read any trouble codes
(check engine, ABS etc.) and turn off the service light, as opposed to
being able to do it by pushing a button under the hood.

YM98 was the last year of cable operated throttles. YM99 then was the
first year of fly by wire throttle.
