      Friday I took my car in to get the recall done for the door latches and was given an option of which loaner I wanted, the XC60, XC90 or "that sporty one over there". Went with the sporty V60 CC T5 and was impressed. Yes, it didn't have the power or handling of my R-Design, but it was enjoyable and I loved the wagon part of it. Liked the instrument panel and center display although thought it was a lot of steps to get the forward camera on as compared to the one button on my car.

      Had them do a realignment while there since I've hit a few big potholes so wanted to make sure they were tracking right. Went to pick up my car in the afternoon and was told that the front passenger window had slid down the track while doing the repairs and had scratched my tint. But before I had time to register that, he said they had re-tinted the window and I was good to go. Looks good and matches very well with the rest of the windows so not a problem.

      Another bonus is my auto lock/unlock handle on my driver side rear door works much better now. It would open but not lock before, but now it works as it should, so overall it was a good day.

      This is the tool to use if you're rolling fenders. There are other methods but if you've got a nice car it's not worth risking denting the body side, IMO. No idea how this guy did it but it sounds like he didn't use this tool..

      Well where the plastic was covering the lip, that part is rolled up now. Trimming the plastic does allow some road debris to get by, but probably not as issue unless you drive on alot of dirt/ or snow covered roads. Mine is a fair weather car no I'm not worried. No cracked paint but was careful and slow and kept heat gun on it, and fender about 150 deg. I used a similar tool to the eastwood, a copy probably that had good reviews. Watch a bunch of vids, gives you a good idea how its done, thats what I did, and this was my first go at it. Went perfect.

      Thanks. Tempting to have them rolled. May need to do that unless I find the perfect height and tire combo that lets me run close to flush without rubbing

      Still waiting on bolts from Tasca to do my suspension....................................
      Did my first oil change myself after reading up on the T5 Drive-E piston ring issue. I got the Liquimolly 0w-20 kit from FCPEuro and a Fumoto drain valve with the extension and right angle bit. Oil shot out a lot further than I was expecting taking off the original drain plug. It made a decent mess as it completely splashed off the top of the oil drain pan I had. The Fumoto valve should make this significantly less messy in the future. I cut a small bit out of the skid plate (I have the cardboardy-felt stock one) to access the oil valve. I wasn't sure if I really wanted to cut a big circle out to allow me to do a full oil change without needing to take the skid plate off. I will figure it out in 5,000 miles I guess.
      For those that may be wondering, you need the extension on the Futomot valve as the valve "handle" hits the oil pan when you try to screw it on. Also, it ends up tightened down so that the valve "handle" is pointing towards the ground, meaning it sticks down just a tiny bit below the bottom of the oil pan.

      After watching some of the videos, now I'm thinking that cutting the fender instead of rolling it might be the best scenario. You get more clearance so the tire can sit closer to the fender for a more flush look.

      Thats a bad idea...you end up with a sharp edge , and a bare edge that can rust. And its going to be very weak. The back is actually inner and outer spot welded together.....so you will be cutting apart the removing spot welds. If you take your time and roll it well, its quite thin anyway

      Finally got my new DO88 intercooler installed. Waiting on the 3.5" DP from 8EightFab then I will have it tuned and be back with results! This intercooler is well worth upgrading by the way. You won't be disappointed. Also, the only thing hard about the install was reaching the screws on the hose clamps to take the oem intercooler off. I had to remove the crash bar in order to get to them. Be sure to put the new hose clamps on in a way you can access the screw easier if you ever need to mess with it again.

      Nice. I posted in here after getting the 850 race car, but I haven't been able to find the Superfast V60 yet (to be fair, I've only checked 2 places). Where did you find it?

      I found it in Target, my 5 year old was looking at toys and so i decided to see if they had any Volvos. They only had 1 of each, so grabbed them both. The Superfast one cost 5 times what the 850 did, bit stupid considering fundamentally the only difference is one has an extra box in the packaging, but, i had to grab it.

      I just wanted to drop a quick update. After changing my oil at about 7,500 miles (will be doing it every 5,000 myself from now on) and going from Castrol 5w-30 to Liquimolly 0w-20 Volvo Spec, the engine feels SIGNIFICANTLY smoother. I recently put in the race (black) powerflex torque bushing and had a lot of vibration, mainly in reverse which was almost entirely gone immediately after the oil change. I did not know if it possibly could have been from having the car jacked up or anything like that, but it is still significantly smoother feeling in drive and especially reverse. Oil did not look terrible when I drained it, but was definitely used. Still waiting to hear from Tasca about bolts I ordered to FINALLY get my suspension changed out (currently 4 months later than I planned on doing it). I think I just need to order the parts from one of the volvo parts web stores and try to cancel the Tasca order. I am absolutely tired of waiting to get this suspension work done.

      Put in a new air filter, the old one looked pretty much new, but since I have no clue when it was last changed by the previous owner, I figured it was about time to change it. Will likely tackle the cabin filter at some point soon, that looks to be a pain in the ass of a job from everything I have seen, especially just to change a filter. Almost time for the first oil change since I bought it as well!

      It takes less than 2 minutes to replace a cabin air filter. I'm not joking. It don't see how others thing it's difficult. It just in a weird spot.

      I'm sure you're right, I've had that lower cover off a couple times (removing glovebox) and could see where the cabin filter goes.

      2 minutes to replace the cabin air filter?!? I would say at least 10 minutes if you really don't care about bending stuff out of the way and really jamming the filter in there. The length of the filter means it has to bend right at the entrance lip in order to get into the "rails" correctly for it to slide in. Too me about 15 minutes wiggling it and trying to get the bend just right so it would start to slide in. I could probably do it faster now that i know how it is supposed to go in, but 2 minutes is definitely a stretch I would say. Definitely worth the cost saving over the dealership.

      What's there to bend (besides your back)?

      I'm serious. In the time it takes to drain the oil out of the block (which is typically when I do it), I fold the carpet over, pull the junction box away and take the filter housing cover off, out with old and in with new filter. You pre-warp the filter a bit so that it slides right in the rails.

      I spent the last 2 days installing my Heico suspension as well as new end links, new outer tie rods, and replacing brake fluid. Unfortunately, I have had massive problems with the front left which means the car is still not done. I hit a massive pothole that bent a rim on that corner about a year ago. I am not sure if it is the cause, but my other tie rod to knuckle bolt was completely seized and unable to be removed. I had to cut it off with a hacksaw. Then I tried removing the outer tie rod from the inner tie rod, and it too was impossible to move. With some extreme leverage, I was able to turn the locking nut back about 2 threads before it became jammed. I was still unable to turn the outer tie rod and ended up stripping all the flat parts off the inner tie rod and rounding off the teeth on my vise grips. I'm currently waiting on my new inner tie rod kit to ship and I hope it will come off the steering rack easily.

      The front strut replacement was a bit of a bear, but I was able to do it with just the front on Jack stands and did not end up removing the ball joint. The real trick is to leave a screw in the top of the strut so that the wheel hub will pull away from the strut. Have someone stand on the top of the wheel hub just in front of the strut mount to push it down. With the sway bar and tie rod removed it will drop very far. It went almost all the way to the ground and was jacked up maybe 2 ft. Another person then needs to guide the hub backward (or forward as I did the second time) and rotate it towards the ground. The strut should just pop right out and remain suspended by the bolt at the top.

      Putting it back in was shockingly easy the second time. I first maneuvered it up into the top mount and put 1 bolt in loosely. Then I had my helper stand on the top of the hub again but this time I angled the strut hole towards the front of the car. Once I got it around their foot and aligned with the hole, I rotated the hub back to vertical and the strut just popped right in. I recommend applying anti-seize to the part that slides into the hub, really lubed it right up for easy slide action. Also, you absolutely need something jammed into the back where the strut hole is split to keep it split open enough for the strut to slide in and out.

      Honestly, if not for the tie rod issues and then spending 3 hours trying to locate a pass-thru socket set in stock on my side of town, the total job is probably a day's worth of work if you go slow and steady. The rear shock and spring are insanely easy to replace. To get the rear spring out, just remove the outer, lower control arm bolt.
      Hopefully, I can get the new parts quickly and test my car out soon!


      EDIT: referenced the wrong bolt and typing errors.

      New tire set up: 245/40/18 Extreme Contact Sport

      Might drop the rear down just a tad bit, but I am finally happy with how it drives and looks (and no rubbing finally!). Not super aggressive fitment but definitely an improvement over stock offset!

      What rims are those? That is the look I am eventually going for, minus the red center hub.

      BBS RE-V, forged wheels from BBS Japan. I special ordered them from the tire rack. You should also be able to order them directly from BBS USA. They come with black center caps and three finishes, silver, diamond black and matte gray. I went with the matte gray to match the kpax anthracite trim i installed.

      Those are some nice wheels. The price always scared me away.

      I FINALLY finished my suspension installation, only 3 months later than I originally planned... Got the new inner tie rod and tried to use the loaner removal tool from O'Reilly's, but it did not work. Even though the 38.4mm insert would fit tightly onto the flats, when I would push the big tube onto the insert it would lift it off the flats as it centered the insert inside the large tube of the tool. It was a very small amount but it made it so the tool would just slip off the flats as soon as you tried to break the inner tie rod loose. I ended up buying the universal type tool that clamps down onto the but part of the tie rod (it can also be used on tie rods with no flat parts) and a couple 3/8" extensions. It was a little difficult keeping the teeth of the tool on the flats of the tie rod and not slipping outward onto the round section, so there is some slight "damage" where the teeth dug in slightly. After I popped the new inner and out tie rods on, I installed the sway bar end links and got the wheels back on.

      Then I decided to try out doing a "string" alignment. I forgot to take any pictures of this but I put the front of the car on ramps so I could access the tie-rods. The alignment is theoretically within spec (~1/16" toe-in on each side) and the car tracks at least as straight as before. However, somehow, my steering wheel sits at the 10 o'clock position to drive straight, but if I let go of the wheel it only has a very slight rightward drift, but it did that before. I will be getting a real alignment asap, but I wanted to try it out myself. I would say it was a success minus the lopsided wheel. I had my helper hold the steering wheel straight while I adjusted the tie rods.

      Overall the car feels a bit tighter in turns and with a bit less body roll, but bumps are definitely sharper. I am going to let the springs settle for a few days before I take my "after" picture as the ride height is currently only ~1/4" lower than stock. So far I honestly can't say if the suspension was much of an upgrade, it feels more like the car did when I first bought it, so there was definitely some wear-out after 38,000 miles. But it's not really the night and day difference I was expecting from going to stiffer springs and significantly better shocks. I am hoping as the springs settle more it will feel better, plus I have a day trip planned to get in some nice mountainous driving to really feel it out. Additionally, my front and rear end links and outer tie rods were completely shot. The joints would move around just from gravity. I think that outer tie rods were the cause of my wandering steering on the highway. Didn't feel it anymore after driving around tonight.

      Also, I got my Chinese Dice clone today after 3 months of shipping... I plugged it up and ran Vdash to reset my service indicator. Worked perfectly, also let me know why my ABS service light was on, a ground fault in the front left wheel. I unplugged that sensor, noticed the locking clip was broken, used my air compressor to blow out both connectors, and plugged it back in. No more ABS light. Now I need to read up on Vdash and also find a time (and battery charger) to crack the CEM.

      Sold it!
      After 8 years and 8 months of ownership it was time for a change.
      This forum and everyone here is great and helped me so many times. I'll still check it since I'm addicted and it will take some time to let go.

      Gave my car a good scrubbing and tried out Meguiar's hybrid ceramic wax. Took about 2 hours for the full cleaning, really wish I had some shade to dry the car in, still had a few water spots on the hood and roof. For the 5 years i have had the car I have only ever done a soap rinse, foam brush, rinse, wax at the car wash (not automatic). I really should have gotten some sort of ceramic coating when i first got the car and maintained it. I have some rock chipping on the front of the car and a messed up bit of paint on the hood. The water spots on the hood and roof seem to be baked on almost. Took multiple cleaning passes to get rid of most of them.

      You can also see the results of the lowering from my Heico suspension. The 3rd picture is from before the Heico suspension and washing. The true color of my car is a mix between picture 1 and 3 (black ember).

      I was curious if that hybrid ceramic wax is better than the regular wax of the same brand? How does it compare and wear?

      Sorry Ilovedoughnuts, this is the first time I have applied a ceramic wax coating to my car. Picked the hybrid simply because it claimed to go on easy and rinse off (however it still needs to be buffed/dryed with a microfiber cloth). Honestly. I only do a deeper cleaning of my car once a year and just use the "manual" car wash every few months or if I get bird poop on my car. I am hoping the water beading holds up for at least a few months.
