      Sweet mate! Looks really good!
      Do you plan on lowering it a bit?
      I'm unable to decide if I try and source the spoiler for the wagon.
      I think it would look good. But I don't want to mess with the drilling and stuff

      Got my car back after leaving it in for a 10,000 mile service mechanic found some problems. So service wasn't done in case I didn't want it done.

      So he found out both rear brake callipers are ceased needs rear discs & pads both sides, hand brake cables, front R/H inner tie rod with track rod as it's knocking plus tracking & service.

      Total cost is coming in at around €1500 plus or minus. Hand brake cable is main dealer part. Anyone reckon it's worth putting money into it? I'm really tempted to as it's a nice car to drive & want to keep it going.

      So a couple updates:
      So my Volvo has hit the 100k mile mark.
      Had to splurge money on getting it right last year it was the ordeal of the dual mass flywheel & clutch that took 3 weeks to do, this time was rear discs & pads along with rear calipers on both sides & hand break cables plus a service & outer tie rod plus tracking. Mechanic had to take it back in cause he ordered wrong side tie rod. After he said it was knocking I could hear it & after a while of driving it's knocking again I reckon it's the inner tie rod that's gone now as it was done before with a cable tie holding the boot onto the inner tie rod & not a metal clip.

      Changed both indicator lamps in the wing mirrors as they were cracked & fail on our car tests here in Ireland which is mandatory. A crashed 2012 S40 came in with front end damage & was wrote off so I took them along with the both wiper blade arms as mine were starting to corrode & didn't look nice, was tempted to take the rear bumper & rear bumper brackets, tail lights & boot lid moulding to give it the facelift look but didn't.

      Going to be colour coding the textured plastics on both front & rear bumpers, both sill covers/side skirts & 4 bottom door mouldings on my own time in work. Gonna take a while to do which I don't mind.

      After that hopefully get tints on the back of the car & maybe lower it 20mm give it a bit of a sporty look.
