      Update-

      broke basically everything... not sure what else happened, but power steering finally went with the torque mounts. 132k miles and haven't had any major major engine problems, so thats a + for the 3.2. Still looking around for random cool things to put on/in it.
      future light bar mounted to the roof racks? Enkei TS9's in black? window tint?

      to be continued

      Listen:

      1-sidescuff
      2-mudflaps
      3-roofspoiler
      4-18” wheels or more...
      5-IPD sway

      Rest of the fancy facelift upgrades are for crazy members like me that don’t want to spend too much on a (new) car, certainly not too much on a bank loan. For example no need to upgrade the taillights just install the mod that would illuminate the upper part of the lights. Just a few $ but a huge difference.

      Just little upgrades every 3mths. It’s fun, something to look forward to. Even things like a glasscoating. Fun to do.

      Imagine buying a $50.000 (?) SPA V60CC fully equipped, park it in a garage then you come back and somebody scratched it by accident. You drive away and you damage your 20” rims because you are pissed off of what just happened.

      WHY do I say this. Cars are so expensive and so vulnerable at the same time. Almost like walking on eggs...

      The difference between a autumn leave mountain road in a 2011 XC70 and a V60/90CC can’t be$40.000. -But maybe I am wrong. I never experienced it. I don’t have that amount of money.

      WHY do I say this; I think I only want to say enjoy your mods buddy. Being a XC70 owner is already super cool. It still triggers “double takes” and it’s a very manly car. Not too much, not too little. The XC70 is still the perfect car but nobody sees it UNTILL they buy a Chinese 2017. I can see them think when I pass them on the interstate; Shoot I bought the wrong car, well ...his wife thinks: “my husband bought the wrong car” lol

      And then I woke up,...(or did I)

      I can't wait to see how this turns out Charlie! I'm looking into the Aero Bars for my wagon, and i may look into some of the things CC posted. I havent considered the scuff plates or mudflaps so they may be just added onto the list of things to get, and as for the light mod for the rear, I may look into that too. Can't wait to hear more from your build!

      Cheers!

      Charlie, sounds like you have the virus too. Go for it and show some pics asap. All the best with your cool upgrades. It’s a nice road to travel. Very satisfying, keep that P3 alive.
