Everyone have a laugh

So I got a new daily today..

2005 Volvo XC70 140k one owner very very good shape! Yes it's ugly but any ideas what to do appearance wise? And is there any performance sites for these cars?

Nothing wrong with that car. Appearance wise, nothing unless you want to get into ricer territory. Looks fine the way it is.

My thoughts are tiny the Windows, good sound system, CD player, tint tails, different wheels and tires..

I wish I could upgrade some suspension parts and maybe a bigger turbo

Ez to turn up the turbo on those, atmosphere wastegate for 'that sound', dark tint, plastidip the rims and put some eibach sportline springs on it. You'll be gtg

I would tint it and do a stereo and call it a day. Having two cars to modify can get expensive and I would want to be comfortable in at least one of them. My truck is staying stock for that reason and that way I can get aggressive with the suspension and ride height of my vette.

Volvo is one of the safest car manufacturers in the world. They consistently receive five star crash test ratings and really put to shame other car manufacturers. You should watch crash test videos on YouTube of your mustang and then watch one for the Volvo. You'll be glad you drive the Volvo every day. Nice car

Tint the windows, change the oil and drive it. Don't dump any money you don't have to into this.

I used to have a Volvo. 2001 S60T5.


My advice:

-Have money set aside for repairs. When they come up, the price on parts is utterly balls shattering.

-Do not mod it at all. It is already running at its limit.

-Call the local Volvo dealer and ask them how much $$ for them to change spark plugs. I dare you lol.

this.

I have never really had a customer happy about the prices on parts for their volvo. The best i have seen is "Sigh.. its a volvo..."

Yup. I used to be all about European cars (back when I first got into cars). I thought they were awesome because of "german/swedish engineering". In fact, I used to scoff at mustangs for being "unrefined, common, and unsophisticated" even though I had no idea how either of them worked haha. Most of the stuck-up euro car drivers literally do not understand one thing about their cars other than the fact that it costs more and says BMW on it lol

Its funny how my preferences eventually changed based largely on those reasons alone lol. I now actively seek out unsophisticated cars and avoid "German Engineering" like the plague. Wisdom is the son of experience, as they say.

Paint flames on it. Not those 1960's flames. The good flames people are painting today.

But, really, nice daily ride. Just take good care if it.

Add the teenage Mustang owner starter kit to it.....
I believe it comes as a package deal on AM. It includes, shorty antenna, Cyclone badges, 2 cans of plasti dip, a GT grill, CAI, a tune of your choice...as long as it's Bama 93 race.

No, seriously though, that car is good just like it is. Don't spend any money, no one would ever notice anyway and it's just one of those that you don't mod. There are a TON of them here in North NH and have 200k+ miles as daily drivers, great in snow.
Best mods you could do would be replacing worn suspension and other items with new OEM and resell it when you're done with it for the same money you got in it.

currently dealing with this from a kid at work who loves hondas and thinks they are superior in every way. gotta love it when they compare a boosted civic to a beater 3.8 and think they are hot stuff. he doesnt understand that with the same budget, a mustang will destroy him. i dont care how many corners he can take with ease, ill just plow through them. lol.

It's not about wisdom or experience, it's about customer care. My wife drove a BMW for years while I was away on the road 90% of my work time. For 4 years, all maintenance and service were free (except tires and wiper blades). She always got a loaner for the day or two it took them to do the freebie oil changes and such. I never had to worry about her having "car issues".
Well built and well driving cars. But you pay for that.
She now drives a Jeep Grand Cherokee, as they have the same setup maintenance wise. It gives me more time to play with the other garage "toys".

Volvo ranks right there with quality and safety. Nice ride to the OP.

definitely a good point. The real issue with bmw specifically, is that after 60k miles and that warranty is up, then they start leaking all over. My dad drives a 3 series. figures that i was home during the warranty, and now im 250 miles away out of the warranty.
