      Mind sharing where you picked up the caliper, bracket and rotors?
      I've seen a Stoptech kit for the SPA2 but this is the first im seeing a Brembo.
      These would look great on our Xc90.

      I got it from 1 of the local vendors here (go FB search: thebrakeshop sg)... they will install the new calipers (your choice of colour), and mount it with a customized bracket. HTH.

      Hi guys, what's up? Did a couple of changes to the ride, sprayed the BBS to gunmetal.. effect came out a bit too dark but I'll live with it. Also, added a roof lip spoiler.









      Drive safe on those wintry roads yo... hopefully DHL will deliver my package from Viva soon.

      Ok, that should be IT for my wagon's personalization process.





      Ebay decals as a complementary touch:



      Had some tape lying around at home, so...



      PS: The Vaitrix tuning looks interesting.

      All the mods looks great. I could pass on the steering wheel tape though As an alternative, do you know if there is a way to remove the glossy black piece at the bottom (with the R-design symbol in it)? Maybe that would look good painted yellow?

      How do you like the Heico Exhaust by the way? Do you notice any performance gains?

      Haha, the tape will (probably) be taken down if/when I get sick of it. No idea about the bottom piece, sorry.

      It's just the tips actually.. thought hard about it, and decided at this point in life, I can live without the droning of an aftermarket muffler.

      Same here. Although I am intrigued by the Heico with the flap control, so you can somewhat tone it down if you don't want the angry growl all the time.

      Oh, forgot to mention a happy side-effect - the tailpipe kit comes with the 2 tips and the 2 connecting Y-pipes, so the stock RHS flap/actuator is redundant. My exhaust shop had it tied securely under fyi.

      So now, the car has a (very) slightly heightened bauble at idling and driving. According to them, that flap is to help at low-end but very negligible effect in the real world.

      Beautiful car, but how do you park that beast in Singapore? Our parking spots barely held a little Accord.

      Most of the public lots are ok length-wise, though frequently their width seems to be catered for the comparatively petite dimensions of a typical '80s car.

      Hi @axl886

      I will soon take delivery of new V90 T6R, unusually excited to get a Volvo after long family loyalty with Lexus. Your posts did have a bit of influence in this decision.

      Did you get any grief from Wearnes by changing stock wheels while still under warranty and tied to dealer service? I'm hearing many stories but these are not from actual SG Volvo owners...

      Hi monst3r, wow.. so now I can considered an "influencer"? Hah.

      Congrats, you must be excited! What colour is it? Actually I changed wheels and springs, plus added spacers not long after delivery. No problems thus far during servicing, that said, I hadn't need to claim any suspension-related stuff, so...

      Haha, seeing the mod potential with your build sealed the deal for me.

      My color is Denim Blue and if it works out should take delivery just before Chinese New Year. First thing to change are stock wheels, sound system next as I'm a bit bummed it couldn't be spec'd with Bowers & Wilkins.
