      Yup. I'm gonna end up scrapping then, not doing me any good. They had ~30k on them. Yours no charge if you change your mind, ready for new bushings. Saves ya about $200 if you press in rubber bushings on the rear and PPS poly from eeuroparts for $30. I'll even wire wheel em clean and spray em black if you want, make em look purdy for ya 😘 lol

      My apologies I should have asked if anyone else wanted one before making an impulse order.

      What, do you think you’re the only one that wants their ‘03 Mystic Silver T5M V70 to be amazing!? How dare you! Hahaha. Maybe next time you pull a stunt like that, feel free to shoot me a PM. 🤣

      Took advantage of IPDs sale to get adjustable rear toe arms. Seen these used before with great result over the flimsy and expensive stamped steel oem volvo ones.

      Also ordered bilstein touring fronts and all supporting hardware besides fastners. Hopefully the nose dive will be diminished and the way under damped ride refreshed.

      That’s funny. Other side of the world vs road. I recall Jared saying the 07 mirror size blocks the effectiveness of those, so not worth buying? So the passenger side doesn’t show the wider expanse like USDOT “objects are...” view? I wonder if that would be a good or a bad thing.
      So, about the adjustable rear toe arms- when I get the rear done, is this something I can do to the vr?

      07 mirrors are different and seem to sit deeper in the housing. The passenger us mirror is fully convex the euro wide angle are hybrid and convex on the inside and strait mirror on the outside.

      I have Bilstein Tourings on the back (01 V70 T5M) and like them a lot, on the front just put a brand new pair of 2008-2009 spec OEM Volvo S60 front struts, maybe a hair less brake dive dampening than the Koni FSDs on there previously, but nicer ride quality overall

      Yeah 07 mirrors suck. I am going to replace mine; not sure what with yet but those have got to go before i hit someone (pretty sure I've come close already). I've been driving the 99 the last couple days and it reminds me how amazing it is to be able to see things.

      This was excruciatingly painful to do especially with the official install kit but it's worth it.

      Behold









      Wagon wang!

      So I'm hearing that you can retrofit p80 style handbrake adjusters in the rear p2 parking brakes. This is advantageous since i'm about to upgrade the rears to xc90 308mm vented rotor/calipers.

      Look at the link in my signature about the parking brake adjuster.

      Man, I'm diggin that sport knob. And the wang looks awesome too. It's really coming along! A question and a comment:

      Where did you get that windshield trim? I started to take my windshield cowl off awhile back to repaint it, and that trim started crumbling and I bailed…

      Regarding the parking brake hardware, I just replaced all my parking brake business when I redid the brakes a couple weeks back. I used this kit here, and have to say that the springs were higher quality than the OEM pieces I've pulled off in the past…plus the star-adjusters are SUPER nice to have. Amazon Prime linky.

      I love the shift knob. Swapped it in the parking lot (easy lol). I kid you guys not it made me shift and drive stick better. I've been suffering from loose motor mounts and lead foot and haven't been the smoothest. That being said the "gates" feel really vague on this car and all of a sudden after swapping the knob I'm shifting with the bridge of my hand instead of my fingers and my shifts became near perfect.

      I stumbled upon the trim honestly. Got it from fcp. PN 8663896

      PM me some pictures. CT is a good day trip!

      That wang looks great! Wagons without it always appear to be missing something.
