      LeemansJ~~Volvo V50 2.4 D5 R-Design

      My '04 V50 had the 2.0D engine with 290.000km and it started to have some big expenses..
      new clutch was eneded also a new turbo etc...

      Found this beaty on the internet, and took the plunge after a test-drive and closer inspection..

      It's a '09 V50 R-design in Ice White with the 2.4 D5 engine stock 180bhp and 400Nm torque so it's pretty quick compared to my previous 136bhp/320Nm

      plans ? yes sir but have to wait a year due to warranty...
      My coilovers will be transferred to this one, also my rims will be mounted under the D5.
      And i'm thinking about some carbon fiber bits...quite a lot cause the combo of white and carbon is just fabulous

      here are some pics

      can't really beat an R-design in white, looks really nice.

      i notice you have your city lights turned on in the garage pic. it looks like my headlights have these but I can't seem to work out to switch them on? is it something you can activate in VIDA?

      Thx

      Veefifty T5AWD: jups it's a pretty rare combination of the white, with R-design, with leather seats AND the D5 engine
      that's why I didn't hesitate

      EGR and DPF Delete and also optimised the ECU. Did not want to much the engine/drivetrain to the max, so stayed humble
      It has smoother curve, and you certainly can feel the difference

      Stock: 180bhp / 400Nm (295lbft)
      Optimised: 202bhp / 483Nm (356lbft)

      Next on the modlist is an rearmuffler delete, and maybe change the IC





      Result of the DPF delete and flying on the Deutche Autobahn with 240km/H (almost 150MPH)
      Still getting an average of 6,0 L/100km (39mpg)

      Bought some MK Motorsport , one set in 18x8,5 ET34 and one set in 18x8,5 ET13. Both are 5x120, but I'm letting them welded and redrilled to 5x108 and also change the offset to ET40 and ET20.
      The rims are pretty rare and hard to find, I even think they are unique in Belgium...Specialy when I mix to sets of rims Why I bought two sets I hear you think ?
      Because of the lower Offset (ET13) the face is more concave compared to the front...so it will look like a staggered setup, but still be square 8,5" ...
      We're lookin to buy a C30 for the misses, and she'll be running the other pair

      I'm not quit sure how the finish will be...silver, black, brushed, .. time will tell i guess

      Picture of the 18x8,5 ET13 (you just need to imagine the oem centercaps, into the black ones )

      Hi there,

      When splitting my BBS MK Motorsport wheels, I thought of doing something different and I mounted a BBS VR6 centercap just for fun and giggles...I never thought it would have such an impact...

      As you can see designwise it's fricking awesome, so I had the idea of making an own design for the centercap using the design of the BBS VR6 centercap..

      Cause these wheels are already pretty rare, I thought it would be nice to show the progress

      Splitted:


      Mock-up of the centercap


      Quick paint on the centercap so i can visualize it better


      All the designs I created so far:



      Design 1:





      Design 2:





      I don't have any pictures of the 3rd design...

      Design n°4 is my favorite...still needs a bit of tweaking to let it 3d print, but I'm 99,99% happy with the outcome of that.






      If you have some designs you want to share, feel free to comment

      Sooooo, went to the shop who's modifieng my rims to testfit them..to be 100% sure they would fit before painting them.
      And bang, do they fit

      final measurements are 18x8,5 ET40 on the front and at the rear i've got 18x8,5 ET20
      Still needs to lower the car, so the poke will be less due the camber it will create..but you've got the idea already

      can you tell us a little more about the welding and re-drilling of the wheels? I have never heard or seen anyone do this to aluminum wheels. I would be worried that the welded area has different properties than the rest of the wheel and could be subject to fracture down the road.

      Learn something every day and those wheels look amazing.

      The wheels centers were sandblasted to remove all the paint.
      Then they are pre-heated in an oven to a certain temperature. Then they close the lugholes by welding (filling) the holes.
      after that they mill the backface to a perfect flat surface, clean up front, and then re-drill the lugpattern on a cnc machine.
      My centers went from 5x120 to 5x108

      That is stunning! We dont have any such services in the US although I wish we did because there are a lot of OEM wheels I like and would love to put on my car but we are stuck with spacers and all the other goofy stuff.

      These look amazing though! Cant wait to see them on the car.

      Thx Yeah I really like the D5 engine I would like to have a T5, but considering the price difference between fuel and diesel, and the consumption, the diesel is the way to go in Europe.
      I do about 850-900km / 528-559miles with a full tank of diesel (about 60 liters / 18,85 US Gallons).
      So I get average for about 6,66 L/100km or around 35,5 MPG even with sporty driving

      And the 202bhp / 483Nm (356lbft) are really fun with the M66 gearbox Next year I'll change the exhaust, IC and tune, so will be seeing 240bhp / +/-520Nm (383lbft)

      So...apperently it wasn't possible to disable my xenon lighting
      untill i asked about the software "30679690" ...

      So when I switched the lighting switch on "0" (zero) nothing is lit, pos I is the SML with the parkinglights, and pos II are my xenons. No more driving with xenons or parking lights during a hot sunny day

      Lucky for me i have a friend who works at the local volvo dealer, so he did it after his hours for free so I had just to pay the software

      These have been laying far too long aside :/ Finaly mounted the tailpipes...this should have been standard on an R-design V50....
      Much better 120mmx90mm
      Bit of a butcher-job (🙊&#128584 needs some tweaking, but it's just temporary

      Allright, don't know why, but some images are gone, or do not show properly....

      I hope these will show...because I FINALLY MOUNTED THE MKs hahaha sorry, but I'm over the moon !!! It was a fricking long project, but it finally worked out. And I fricking LOVE it.
      Need to go a little bit lower, but the driveshafts needs to be shortened, and the reararches need some work.
      But at the moment, I'm enjoying it how it is. Took me way too long for this
