      I'm not an expert, but could possibly be related to the Turbo Control Valve. They're prone to failure on P1 cars, and could cause the wavering boost symptoms that you're experiencing. It's where I'd...

      Thanks Rodney! Yeah I saw that thread in the S40 forums as well. The only reason I decided to make a post here in the C70 forums is that we have that pesky rear-cup holder that prevents us from...

      Don't be daunted by the effort! The job is more time consuming than it is difficult. A lot of the trim pieces are pretty durable, and if you're careful, you won't break anything. Invest in an 11pc...

      Absolutely! I mentioned in Step 8 as a 'note' that it'd also be feasible to take the rear seat out. I didn't do that, but if I have to do this again, I'll try the rear seat removal method. Since this...

      Hello All!

      Honestly, I had the feeling before I found out it's only a 4cyl. It feels great, the power is really good, but the experience is a little more sterilized.

      Man.....thats a bummer. The S60 is a sweeet ride, I can't complain about it. It doesn't feel like its got the same life that my C70, or any of my other 5Cyl cars had. It's a different feel!

      Yeah! They don't normally have C70's, but there's usually a selection of S40's from my year range, so it's all good!

      I think that's a very astute observation. The face lifted C70's definitely look a lot more classy and luxurious. And the pre-face lifted models have a more sporty-looking stance. The Black Stone...

      Short-Term Memory Seats

      Hey All!

      I've got a 2008 C70, 93k miles now. (Do you think it'd also be ok to post this on the S40/V50 forum too, since our platforms are basically the same?)

      I've got the memory and power...

      I think the aftermarket head unit looks alright. I think 'clunky' is a bit too strong of a word. It's different, not amazing, but not bad looking.
