      On Sunday, the weather was amazing, cool and the warmth of the sun was radiating. Decided to take the car out for a drive on my favorite road and give her a little photoshoot.




      ^ Picture is a little over exposed












      Also, someone threw a ****ing golf ball at me off a bridge on the highway before I passed under it. I saw it as it was thrown and hit the brakes in time and got lucky it hit my front bumper. I took the exit ramp and raced to the bridge it was thrown off of. Was gonna kill someone. Glad they didn't do any serious damage though. Even the hexagons of the golf ball's design can be seen on the bumper. What the **** is wrong with people?!

      Ive been debating getting one for a while now. What do you think of it in terms of fitment/modification? It looks like there are parts of it that dont quite match up with the lower bumper, like you can see past certain areas and the ground below.

      Youre at stock ride height right? How is the scraping with this thing in everyday life-going over speed bumps and things.

      It looks really awesome on your car and makes me want to do it that much more!!! But I dont wanna destroy my front end on a raised manhole or something lol.

      It's not that low lol. It'll only scrape if you don't be careful and keep your eyes out for things that might hit it. The only time it scrapes is when entering parking lots, it scrapes a little. It looks loose because it was ripped off. I have to remount it properly this weekend and I'll be using bolts and nuts.

      It'll require some modification, like I had to cut the fender area after the installation because it stuck out too much.

      Inspiring mods I hope to do the same for mine (budget permitted). I recently purchased a 2005, S60 T5 that needs TLC.

      Enjoy driving Hines myself. I had a photo shoot with an old mustang there once. It really is a nice piece of SE Michigan. I work in the area so I probably make it onto Hines at least twice a week and usually in the R. My car looks nearly identical to yours minus the front lip.

      We should meet up and cruise! Are you in the Volvo Enthusiasts of Michigan group on FB?

      Nope not me, I have the wide V O L V O, no S60 and the no exhaust signature
      But damn that's another R owner. I wonder if they're even enthusiasts.

      Oh well, thought it was a decent shot since I knew you had a silver R and lived in the area. Looked like his wheels were black so he must be into some form of modding... maybe he's lurking out there.

      Havent updated this thread in a long while as I havent really done anything major to the car. But that'll be changing soon

      Got these in the mail today while I was working on the car trying to change my vacuum. Borla XR-1 muffler, 3in OBX DP and a 3in y pipe for the future dual exhaust and cut out valve to make her TRUE straight pipe on-demand

      Oh I also fixed my dreaded issue where I loose braking and the pedal becomes rock solid if im making an emergency stop or doing spirited downshifting.

      Turns out my brake vacuum pump (seen to the left of the Borla box in the picture above) was dead, I replaced it and it worked instantly. Got a used one off ebay for $68 instead of paying $450 for a new one (****ing volvo...).

      Symptoms: Loss of braking under heavy deceleration and/or quick downshifting, pumping the brake pedal before you start the car till its firm, if it doesn't become free again after turning on ignition (position 2 on key), then its a dead pump.

      Update:

      Cleaned and dipped my wheels pure white. Didn't think they'd look as good as I thought, they look so good in the sunlight and stand out very well. Also, flushed my coolant and change my expansion tank while the wheels were off the car.

      Welp, been a while, 144k miles, car has been a badass, walking muscle cars all spring and summer long. NoWö is in 4 days so it was time to prep the car for the biggest Euro show in the North East. Took the headlights out and painted the side markers with a silver spray can that was in the house when we bought it. Its the exact same silver color that Volvo used for the plastics on the car and the engine bay. Speaking of which, about a month ago I repainted the engine bay plastics and covers since they were worn down from all the salt and heat, and the paint was faded. Found a spray can at Home Depot that was the same blue Volvo uses, it was a new color too! Also decided to paint the front lower lip the same color as the headlights and grille.

      Id say I out did this. I completely in love with this new look, its just so simple and clean!







































      Passenger fog light is still dead, its completely ripped out of its shell and its all corroded. Think imma replace both, might aswell. If anyone has a used one, hmu!

      Thanks gents! And yeah, it sounds amazing, you can feel the sound waves resonating through your chest if you're behind the car, even when its idling. Its such a diffrent and deep exhaust note, and the XR-1 does an amazing job at making the car much quieter. Like, when it was on an open DP, my sound meter would hit 107db, its insane. Ive yet to test out the new exhaust as we have run into some uhhhhh complications. Will update soon once me and the team are done with videos and a full post and review.

      I have the Borla muffler as well, the sound is amazing (OBX DP - no cat/res, 3" all the way), Great choice Khalil. Car looks great by the way! I used to live at Ford & Telegraph, great area to cruise back in the day.

      Andy, we have to get lunch soon. Been busy with the home life / soccer for my boy & work has really picked up. Instead of doing the bathroom in the basement, we ended up moving 2 miles away, lol. Such a pain in the butt. I hope the fam is doing good on your end!

      Dave, did you just get that Borla? Last we met, if I recall correctly, you only had the OBX straight-piped.

      Khalil, your car is looking extra nice. Really like the paint matched corners. Hopefully I can see it in person sometime before winter. Did you guys go to the Ikea meet a couple weeks ago? I wanted to, but my R was giving me issues. Also, my boss ran into my (parked) car in an otherwise empty parking lot. I would've got the most beat to sh!t R award.

      Yes, I just got it installed a few weeks ago. It sounds pretty good. I should be in Canton on Monday at some point. Shoot me a text if you want to meet up and hear it. I didn't go to the meet, just moved so I've been busy with that the last few weeks.

      How's the R treating you now? Is the car fixed from your boss yet? What issues?

      So, finished my exhaust. Sounds amazing and deep. It's amazing how the Borla XR-1 muffler lowered the sound especially that it's a straight though muffler, without it, the exhaust would be very loud.

      I had my exhaust cut and welded by a good friend of mine. Took us 3 days to do it. We ran into clearance issues the first night and we had to take the entire system back out and cut it up again. The next day we were removing the DP bolts and we broke 2 of them, took us an entire day of drilling through them to take them out. On day 3, we redid the entire system, completely hack-job'ed the OBX DP and added a dump pipe to it.

      Here are some pictures.

















      Fail.

      CaR hates us.



      Wireless electronic cutout installation. Found a rubber seal with a hole in it, it's like Volvo knew we need holes for things like this











      Kroger's orange juice is just the perfect drink on a hot day!







      Still need an exhaust tip though. Anyone have any recommendations? I'm interested in duals, so 1+2.
