    Went for the full version. I also got a parrot S.O.T lead as it looked a better fit than the autoleads one I fitted. Been a lazy so & so that I am it also saved me making a sub harness to wire a relay into shut the centre speaker down.





    This also came ?


    Not sure why, but a freebie is a freebie & us northerners like a bargain.

    Installation was very easy,




    Used some sticky back velcro to affix it to the T.V Tuner so as not to have it rattling round in the boot.

    Obligatory gauge sweep shot


    Welcome message (used this function for service indicator)


    Exit message (service indicator again, not very interesting I guess, but it helps to keep on top of the routine servicing of the car)





    I will add the rest of progress over the weekend.
    I am hoping to take the car off of the road at the begin of July for some much needed T.L.C.

    I also replaced the horns with these


    If there good enough for the WRC boys well there good enough for me!

    Anyhows it would appear that Volvo use a 2 pin connector on the O.E horns as opposed to a pair of spade terminals.
    So as I did NOT want to damage the original harness I manufactured some adapter leads.

    So these were a tad too long !

    So ended making these with a bit of heat shrink for added protection (having issues finding stuff on my workshop as I don't get to spend so much time there now, ironically I found the plastic trunking I initially wanted to put on these the other day! Typical)


    Fitted.



    So are they any better, well they were better than the old ones as only the high tone worked and it was some what asthmatic!

    And an unbutchered airbox!


    So why have I removed this performance mod, well where I live we get a lot of rain! So this is not really ideal. I guess if you were in a warmer climate or you only used your vehicle during the summer months I guess it would be fine, maybe ?
    I believe there are a few vendors who sell such a kit. I honestly can't say that the car drives any worse for removing it.

    There are a couple of jobs left to do, hopefully have those done in the next week or so, then I can make a start on my 2003 R!
    I had to remove very similar from one of the s60r's

    ....Easier access for the CFE.

    It's a good idea but since owning my CFE, I found that you'll need to remove it fairly regularly to change settings and also when you need to update the firmware (which has been 3 times so far).

    There's enough length in the OBD extender cable to route the CFE further back and be accessed via the left hand access panel. Having it where you have it now, means having to unbolt the side trim and lot's of mucking about.
    I have mine resting on a piece of black Volvo packing foam and this prevents it from rattling around and also means I can access it quickly and easily.

    It's stuck to the TOP of the T.V tuner so all that is required is to open up the side panel.





    But like you say it is advisable to have easy access, I've adjusted the settings 3 flipping times already & still haven't got the autolock function working!

    Seen as winter is out of the way I thought I would FINALLY get the front bumper painted as the canards were scraped when I bought it & when it was on the 17" winters it got caught a couple of times



    I hopefully get it polished up ready for the summer when I get time!
