    I have seen this setup behind a set of 17" Tethys......not sure whether they were using spacers tbh.

    Should fit, I know for a fact they go under 17" amaltheas, comets and pegs. There's about 15mm gap between the caliper and wheel weights with amaltheas.

    Currently in the process of refurbing a set of XC90 Rear calipers for the S60. A small upgrade from the current solid 288mm discs of the S60 to the vented 308mm discs from the XC90. Probably offer very little noticeable improvement but my rear discs need replacing so thought why not

    Been using Xc90 rears on p1's a while they work quite well, you should notice it.

    I have another question. Which brake lines do you use, stock ones or Xc90?

    The xc90 calipers' pipe attachment is actually slightly closer to the body than the standard one so your current lines will do fine.

    Anyone know if this would work the same for a S40 II?

    I also did this upgrade, front and rear. I was expecting a massive difference, since the rear discs are now larger than the stock 286mm front discs. However, i find it a bit disappointing to be honest. Sure, the pedal responds a bit earlier but it doesn't really feel much different. Or does it take a while before the system really performs to it's full potential? I've driven about 200km / 120miles and went for Zimmermann sport + Ferodo Premier (front) and regular Zimmermann discs + Ferodo Premier (rear).

    To the best of my knowledge the front brake set up of the now discontinued Focus RS with the Volvo 5 pot came straight off the old XC90. The problem might be that the clever front suspension on those RSs might have different spacings, bolt diameters etc. to the old small Volvos that otherwise shared the Focus platform, suspension etc.
