      Yes, the Volvo calipers are a direct bolt on. You need the 320mm caliper brackets as well, which can come from Ford or Volvo.
      Usually, used calipers will include this bracket.

      All of my S40s, V50s, and C30s have been this way. Same camber and toe on both sides. I can only assume it was a design with the subframe to maintain optimal balance when just the driver is in the...

      K16 is the preferred turbo upgrade for a handful of reasons.
      1. It fits with a mostly stock setup.
      2. Tuning isn't too tough, though there are still only a few K16 P1s actually running without...

      Center Caps

      A bunch of the old black style Volvo center caps.
      Some have metal rings, some do not.
      Four appear to be about 55mm in diameter, the rest appear to be 58mm.
      All are used condition.

      The first thought I have would be to buy this paver edging. It's really sturdy and sits at a 90 degree bend for easy mounting. You can use a heat gun to flex it as needed.

      I would advise only going OEM with the efocus mount, especially for only $45.

      Yep, lots of mounts to choose from for any of the C1 platform cars.

      You have a V2.0, not an R-design. R-design for the Classic C30 was just cosmetic bits, so you're not missing out on anything.

      Just thinking out loud here, but if you're noticing this vibration in a straight line at highway speeds, the haldex is likely disengaged anyway and you're running in FWD. So it probably would take...
