    My 2006 Magic Blue 2.0T V70

    Since it's turning into a bit of a project I guess I should make a thread about it here.

    It started off last year as a 'have to buy a new car quick' because my old S60 T5 was in a crash and technically totalled.

    I could salvage a lot of parts that are slowly making its way to the V.

    So far I have done the following;

    - Silvervision turn signals
    - Replaced upper engine mount with a PU one
    - Nebula Wheels
    - Vacuum lines
    - combined the V70 grill with an S60 grill
    - Carkit
    - BC Racing coilovers
    - spacers to get the wheels sitting right (imo)
    - Remap, should have about 220-230hp now
    - 3" downpipe
    - Mud flaps
    - new xenon bulbs
    - xenon in the fog lights

    So it went from this when I bought it:

    to this now:

    Next on the list are
    - XC90 front brakes that were on the S60 (will probably also find a set of rears)
    - replacing the headlight lenses and getting rid of the orange reflector
    - Paint the rims in the darker shade from the Titan rims

    Possible things for later
    - swap the 16T from the T5 & the injectors but it's gonna need a new clutch first because that'll be smoked quickly with more power
    - R bumper or S60 edition bumper
    - Have the plastic on the bottom painted in the cars colour.
