      Welcome to C30 ownership!

      1. Not necessarily a common problem, but with the horns sitting right in the front grille, it's likely that water has gotten into them and caused them to fail. Volvo made...

      No, this is for P1s only.

      I'm open to offers. I'm just basing pricing off the (terrible quality) Ortiz pod, who based their design off mine and charge $190.

      Make me an offer, otherwise I'm throwing it away.

    7. SOLD: MNIWT P1 A-Pillar Gauge Pod

      It's hand made, so it's not perfect.
      There is some minor cracking appearing near the top (picture), but could easily be patched with some filler.
      Textured black finish.
      Built in glare hoods. ...

      The WRX is hands down the fastest in a straight line, the Porsche is the slowest.
      But the Porsche is by far the best handling and the lightest, so it's the quickest through the twisties.

      This is a V1.0 body trim (not R-design) so it will have the most sloppy suspension.
      It's also a 2.4i. So don't bother.

      *2011 was the facelift for North America. 2010 was the facelift for Europe.

      As mentioned, avoid the 2.4i. It's slow and gets worse fuel economy than the T5.

      Sorry to burst your bubble, but tunes are VIN specific.

      You can sell the handheld, which has an average resale price of $150. I've sold multiple at this price.

      I have weighed a lot of the major parts to come out, so I'm at an estimated 400lbs in weight savings.
      A stock C30 weighs just over 3200lbs. So the car would be around 2800lbs if it were FWD.

      But...

      It doesn't have to be, you can pry out the switch block with the airbag in place. But it's one million times easier just to pop the airbag out.
      You don't need to disconnect the airbag, just pop it...

      A stock C30 weighs just over 3200lbs and a stock pre-facelift AWD V50 weighs nearly 3500lbs. The facelifts AWD V50s got all the way up to 3600lbs.

      Of course, the V50 has a lot more weight from...

      I weighed the major parts as they came out and it was about 400lbs in total. But that doesn't account for all the little things, which can also quickly add up.
      I hope to weigh it soon.

      No, this car hasn't had airbags for like 3 years. The steering wheel airbag was only there to hide the nest of wires.

      Looks great!

      Once you get the ABS sensor swapped out, that'll fix the manual shifter lockout for Reverse when driving.
