Took delivery of 2001 V70 T5 using TDS. Car arrived in USA at my home dealer last week. I made a few quick mods, which might be of interest to other owners:<P>Rear mudflaps. When picking these up, I asked my friendly Volvo parts gey to check on the status of the front mudflaps. He did this, and was told that the delay with them has been a problem with the mudflaps disrupting the cooling air to the brakes, causing overheating. They have tried 2 different designs, but have not been able to come up with a set of workable mudflaps.<P>WeatherTech window wind and rain deflectors, F&R. This is a very nicely designed package; made in Germany; fits and looks great on the V70. I find these a must in warmer climates; when I park the car outside, I can leave the windows down about an inch for ventilation, and rain won't get in.<P>Exhaust pipe extension. Strange, most of the S60's have a nice stainless exhaust tip, the V70 has just a ratty cut-off pipe. Well, I had a 2000 XC, and it has 2 exhaust cutouts in the rear bumper, one where the exhaust pipe comes out, and one with a plug in it. So I says to myself, " Self " I says, " Why don't you buy another SS exhaust tip,take out the cutout plug, and mount it so it looks like it has dual exhaust?" "Good idea, says me." So when I sold the 2000 XC I put it back to stock configuration, and kept the SS tip.<BR>And lo and behold, guess what? I cut off a couple inches of it, and it fits the 2001 V70 like it was made for it. " Pretty nifty ",says me. At least now it has a little character. Only one problem-the SS exhaust tip cost a fair war pension. Still and all, " Not bad!!" says me.
