      Originally, nuts and bolts hidden behind the diffuser fins and the sides were just held in place with 3M VHB tape.
      I think I eventually epoxied it on, but I can't remember now...

      Forgot to mention that I recently replace the MAP sensor. Quick swap with my bumper.
      I lost high idle on initial start and would occasionally throw a CEL for a failed IAT sensor. New MAP fixed those...

      The rear bars of the roof racks are different on the C30. You need the C30 bar, which is slightly shorter, and has a piece that fits between the rear windows and the roof.

      Yes, all FWD P1 springs will fit all FWD P1 Volvos. The rear spring rates will be slightly different depending on if the springs were designed for the weight of the S40 or the lighter C30. However,...

      Congratulations! I was always surprised how much more nimble the C30 felt than my S40s, despite not being that much lighter.
      I definitely suggest getting that rear chassis brace that goes behind...

      Not in my area. It's treated just like any other modification, because the car's VIN is still the same.
      We don't have emissions or inspections here. I just pay $30 a year for the renewal.

      I will also say, with the solid torque mount, you quickly learn where the clutch engages and get out of the NVH zone real quick. Idle is a little more noisy, but the car is modified to be sportier,...

      I actually respect that about FCP. If they don't have the part in stock, they'll have it direct shipped from their own source.
      If Tasca did that, it could have been to my house in about 10 days.

      Of course. Any aftermarket tune can remove the limiter and give you more Stage1 power than Polestar would with all stock parts.

      1. It fits with a mostly stock setup.
