      Wow, this is surprising. I have the IPD exhaust, as well as the their downpipe, and it has been nothing short of fantastic. No drone. My S70 GLT (may it rest in peace), had a TME exhaust and that...

      A picture would definitely help. Are you referring to the Turbo Control Valve (TCV)?

      Many cars with Start/Stop have a secondary battery. When this battery goes bad the Start/Stop feature will silently disable. '14 Mercedes E-Class is an example. This could be a path to disable the...

      Last couple of times they have taken FOREVER to process the order. Last time I cancelled after waiting 3 weeks. Ordered elsewhere and had the part in 2 days. Going on 2 weeks with my current order.

      At that mileage the vehicle would have been receiving decent care. You're not going to get stranded anywhere. Unless you want to buy a new car any other used car is going to be just as likely or...

      In addition to the Bilstein struts, IPD sway bars also helped a lot with body roll. With that plus front end parts in good repair I don't notice cross winds.

      I went with the Bilstein HD's up front. They completely eliminated the floatiness of the ride and improved the handling precision. You do feel the sharp bumps more, but it was a good tradeoff for...

      The Focus will be a lot less trouble although he probably paid a whole lot more too. I generally steer anyone with limited means to maintain their car away from anything AWD.

      You could also just rent something fun for an occasional long distance trip for you and your spouse. Save the wear and tear and hotel parking lot abuse on your car. I've had no shortage of crap...

      Check the fuse block next to the battery. This is known to be a weak point. Open it, pull the fuses, and check to see that the connections aren't burned up.

      It doesn't bother me much either. Otherwise the car would be gone.

      I had the misfortune of driving a Ford Fusion Hybrid. This was the laggiest car I have ever driven. You'd think that the...

      All things being equal a larger turbo of similar design will lag more. The R is not equal. It has a different/better exhaust manifold. The turbo design may also have some advantages too (not sure)....

      Non-existent lag until you experience the huge, overflowing, instant torque of a high output naturally aspirated engine. Certainly true that it does far better than 1980's first gen turbo cars, but...

      It's a turbo. A relatively large turbo for the Volvo world. It lags. It's just physics. I find the lag more noticeable in advanced mode. How much you notice it depends on where you're coming...

      I wouldn't think so but I suppose it's possible since you're changing the power curve a bit. Mine's a manual so I can't compare. However, I didn't notice any obvious changes like that on my S70.

      +1 I glued mine at first but it didn't look great. So I just ordered new ones and never had to think about it again.

      Just drive it and take it easy at first. A tune would do wonders for that setup.
