    Will try and get some pics up when it is cleaned up. It's only a SE so doesn't have the back lights but has a front splitter.
    Good to see its not just me had to leave the petrol behind... For now anyway!
    Thanks for the comments..
    They are nice cars, I've managed to get my wheels balanced this weekend which has sorted my high speed wobble. I'm waiting on a wind back tool for my calipers & then hopefully have my rear brakes sorted this week as my peddle is pulsing like crazy.
    Managed to establish that I have no boost leaks, gave it a service (although it looked like it had been done yesterday) a full tank of nitro+ diesel & some reddex.
    Acceleration is still very poor but improved a little. I really have to thrash it to get it to go (killing my mpg) & as stated between 1200 - 2000rpm the car is shocking. So much so that I'm scared I'm going to cause an accident! I've been sticking to the A-roads for my commute.
    Any ideas what the best way to test the actuator would be?
    I need to get this car sorted as its really an effort to use it at the minute.

    I miss my V40. Had hlm remap that made a great difference. Rear calipers I used to wind back with the pointy ends of long nose pliers :-)
    Enjoy the car mate.

    Made a bit more progress today, changed the rear discs & pads & happy to report my brake peddle no longer pulsates like a black mamba. Good work.
    I have stuck fuel additive in the last 2 tanks. It does feel much better but still have flat spots between 1500 & 2000k, also about 3k in 5th. I've changed fuel filter air filter oil filter & full oil change & cleaned the Egr. My mpg is bad, about 35mpg but I have been giving it some welly on the odd cold morning.
    Walking the dog tonight it dawned on me I've not yet unplugged the maf.
    Will try it tomorrow to see if it makes any difference.
    The car drives 10 times better than it did. I need to get my dads easy bleed kit & bleed the clutch & brakes now. The clutch is a tad high.
    As its my birthday on thurs I've asked everyone for money as I need a new head unit & possibly some upgraded speakers & cabling. How far I go depends on how well it sounds with just speakers, I have a Phoenix Gold 12" sub, Jbl 400w amp & a power cap. How good a sound I can get from the saloon body I don't know, I could possibly port the arm rest recess like i have in past cars.
    I'm half tempted to loose the wood inside. It does give an old man feel with the grey/cream interior.

    The fact the flat spot moves dependant on the gear I'm in.. My old v70r was the same.
    Read a bit about maf cleaning spray, I will try that first then chuck on a new genuine one.

    Lol cheers for the offer mate but it's my sons first birthday or I'd be on the Evo triangle run. Where is the walk?
    Disconnected the maf today & it feels more responsive up to 3000rpm.
    I do think it's maf related.

    Went to see our friendly maintenance man today in work & "borrowed" some electric conductor cleaner to blast the maf with.
    I can report no flat spots up to 3k but I couldn't open it up to see how she went due to the fog & 60mph being my limit.
    The cars been great for cheap fixes & is saving me a fortune. 145 a year to tax too!
    Now the mechanicals are sorted I hope to sort some tunes as I'm driving in silence or with my headphones in. 60 mile round trip is getting boring but at least I don't have any annoying squeaks!

    If you aint too fussed about the type of head unit, I have a reasonable one ( cant think of make or model ) that I removed from my soon to be sold/scrapped Audi A4. Send me your address and I'll post it out in the morning. I will post later tonight what it is as it is rattling around in the rear of my Avant A4. Reckon I should get my T4 back from my mate and let him use the Avant !!

    Thank you very much for your kind offer! I've already got a brand new alpine head unit compatible with my phone. 36 delivered is not to be sniffed at. I'm in need of a facia which is cheap enough & the adaption loom. I'm a bit puzzled as to whether it has an amp or not as it has the plug.
    I am now enjoying driving it, it's not what I'm used to performance wise but I like it. My wife's golf is much quicker but I can work on that in time. I would love to try a t4 now I've had this. You should get it back.

    an seen you was in about the stereo. there is a total of 3 adaptor cables needed depending on the year 1 is for radio ariel 2nd is 2 cables 1 for power an 1 for speakers an 3rd cables is for the built in amp other wise it will all sound flat. i still need the 3rd cable myself but im to much of a cheapskate as its 18 alone on ebay an with my sub i cant really tell an the other 2 cables are about 12 altogether
    an a local remmaping company near me will map the 115bhp upto about 155bhp with no other mods
    not sure what im currently running without a map at the moment but i can keep up with a mk4 golf gttdi 130bhp
    ive upped the boost 4psi
    removed both cats
    blanked egr
    if the roads are wet it will spin until i hit 3rd an im currently running 205 40 17
    also ive currently got 40mm springs all round less than a year old which will be up for sale soon as ive got a set of coilovers to go on an would only be looking for 50 for the springs
    Volvo v40 115bhp tdi

    Cheers dude! From what I can see on my phone you car looks bang tidy!
    To host pictures your better off using photobucket as its probably the easiest way. Be great to see some pics of yours, wheels look right up my street! Have you started a build thread?
    Us v/s40 owners are rare although we have a slammed v40 with huge wheels local to me.
    Definitely be interested in the springs in the new year, although not sure what difference mine would be being an s40?
    From what I've read about 145bhp is my max with the standard set up, as much as I'd love to decat it & remove the egr I'm trying to keep it sensible as a daily so I can eventually get another t5 to add to the fleet.
    With the head unit, I have an amp adapter lead off my old v70, it's the grey & green plug I need. I'm hoping my double din to single din adapter fits from my old v70 also. I'm still unsure whether I have an amp, I've got the plug but can't find it in the boot where I have read it is. My car is well spec'd so would of thought it has got one.
    Cheers for the response.

    So I have my new juke box....

    Next up I need the wiring harness to connect it to these plugs.

    Found one on eBay for 9.99 but it's for an s80. Surely these plugs must be the same.
    Pictured are the plugs I think are for the amp, if it exists?!
