      Florida SwedeSpeed Chapter

      I'm living in Jacksonville, Florida and to my dismay there is no one supporting or promoting car meets. I would like to get a few of us together, even if we get a few people from south Georgia. Let me know if you want this to happen.

      Hello!

      I'm in Jacksonville as well, a freshman at JU.
      You need to join Stateside Euro, a european car forum in Jacksonville.
      http://statesideeuro.com/index.php

      It's mostly Vdubs, but there's a fair number of Volvos on there too. They meet on Thursday nights at some restaraunt around here. The details are on the site. I can never go cause I have practice then. But I've heard it's a great time.

      If you're not on volvospeed, you need to be, cause that's where most of the club events are talked about for around here. There's lots of stuff happening in Orlando usually.

      And I'm trying to get a car show put together for JU Flight Team in the next couple months. Don't have any details yet, but keep that in mind.

      That's all I can think of for now. Let me know if there's anything else you want to know!

      Well I'm here if anyone wants to talk Euro Car stuff etc. I'm new to the European car game but have been catching up as much as possible. If I'm not in the gym I'm on one of these forums just reading.

      Hi everyone! New member, as you can tell. I've had Volvos in my family since 1996 (1 960, 1 S40, 1 S60, 3 S80s), but have never needed a mechanic except for when I was in Miami. I had a nice family-owned Volvo repair shop I used down there, but now I'm basically on the southern border of Palm Beach, and I'm looking for a shop in Palm Beach or Broward counties. I'm about to buy a 1999 Volvo V70XC to actually work on and mod, so I'd like to find someone in the area I can take the vehicle to and trust that they know what they're doing. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

      New to Volvo

      Hello! I'm new to Volvo and Sweedspeed and live in Tampa.
      I just picked up a Used (Don't judge me!) 2018 XC90 R-Design w/ Polstar from The Volvo Store Winter Park, FL.
      I'm looking to make my XC90 go faster.

      Why would we judge you for buying a used Volvo,

      For answers and discussion about your car this is the wrong thread, use the XC90 2016 - (SPA) discussion thread.

      https://forums.swedespeed.com/forumd...90-(SPA-2016-)

      But, note, The T6 R with Polestar is about as good as it gets, so if you still have warranty and want to keep the warranty I would not void it by modifying anything.

      NOTE: The T8 has an extra 84 HP and 177 ft/lbs of torque over the standard T6, due to the electric motor,
