      What did you do with your XC70/V70 (2008+) today?

      Testing “looks” of 100mm tips using PVC pipes (95mm!). Ofcourse too long but too lazy to cut. Its the round shape look I was after...

      On the white car it looks great, because the shape of the notches is round and not flat like yours. The white car is bad ass (except I'd get different wheels)!
      I'd leave yours alone. Looks more integrated within the shape it has.

      I think you are right!!! If I do want to change they will have to be oval at least. Tried to convince myself but round looks funny within a flat surrounding/area. I do want catback...it deserves a better noise. What else is out there guys...anybody? Advise? IPD? Ferrita? KPAX?

      Looks cooler or stay away from it. I do have 15mm spacers from HEICO. V O L V O maybe looks a bit boring on the tailgate. Look different my dad always said. Shall I go for it?

      my 2 cents...if it's not adding performance or even perceived performance (spoiler on daily driver) then don't do it.
      there is a difference between being different and being better

      I would just add that if you go to sell it would a potential buyer put more worth in a volvo with a volvo badge or a volvo with a heico badge and a missing volvo badge?

      I will never sell my car...its getting old...with high mileage... 180K. Just want it to look special but not too much. Like you guys, you like a “bit of a different” car otherwise why Swedespeed.

      You have this tuning instinct in you somewhere...🧐

      At a certain point its not worth it anymore selling the car. I own a classic almost...

      Agreed that is high mileage, but come on CC it's a 7 year old volvo, it's still a baby.
      I sold my 22 year old 850 wagon for $2500, granted it only had 193k, but still volvos have resale value until you can't find parts for them.

      Part way through dropping the fuel tank today, got the exhaust, drive shaft, heat sheilds all removed, had to lower the rear differential cradle to get the metal protection shield from under the tank off. Now I have two issues, 1/ trying to drain the tank prior to removing the sender / pump assembly. 2/ I am getting too old and too fat for crawling around under cars on stands!
      2001 V70 - 2000 miles from the nearest dealer and 3000 miles from home, used as my DD for work and storage when I go home for a couple of weeks.
      2009 XC70 D5 - bought because it was ridiculously cheap, cheapest on the planet, after the first drive the wife claimed it before we got home.

      In the meantime I found the exhaust look/solution. Turns out for Diesel there is nothing nice out there except HEICO but they have been sold out for a long time now. On top of that the noise change will be minimal and the price high. So here we go. Custom made stainless steel tips. On the pic its held in front but it gives a good idea. Let me know. I think I love it. Sick ass!! Approaches V90CC LOOKS
      No just kidding but damn it will look so integrated at the end. Current tips are nice but too much hidden. PM me and I will order them for you.

      I'd leave yours alone. Looks more integrated within the shape it has.
      Polestar chip deserves huge exhausts...
      Thanks Zzzz you helped me alot making a different decision. I see what you mean now...

      The picture sucks because the tip is floating before the OEM one, just to get an idea.

      Why do certain things take so long before they happen. Why didnt I see this 2 years ago? Im thinking I am a bad ass tuner but in reality I am 47 and things just dont go as fast anymore. (I can hear you think: —-no thát works just fine guys)



      Anyway it looks sooooo 2018+ (SPA) with the “cutaways” filled up and I am so embarassed driving around with my tiny OEM exhaust I have now. Love hate with my car, as always. We all do? In 24hrs from now consider the operation done.

      Sorry for letting you hate your exhaust now too...who will follow? I tried oval shapedtoday as well but that doesnt match the cutaway either. Tried RS6 look...not for XC, trust me. Its all about the surrounding shape as Zzzzzzzz said before.



      The XC70 is just an old design and noted most by not having fully integrated tips.

      That looks really nice. How does it sound throughout the range of revs?

      There is hardly any change. Diesel is almost impossible to give a Polestar like “sound”. They explained me in the shop, particle filters etc. So I went for a cheaper solution but with good looks. I think..Think many XC owners will follow. Or at least consider

      What did you do with your XC70/V70 (2008+) today?

      So I ordered the best floormats (front and rear) available. Made in the USA ofcourse:

      Why not the oem rubber mats (39807571)? I have them in the xc70 that the kids ride in, they are quite nice and half the price of the weathertech, plus they are made in Latvia
      2011 xc70 t6
      2009 xc70 t6
