I'm actually getting an S80 D5 as you can see from my car below, but it was recommended I post on the V70 Forum to see if anyone with the D5 engine has done the chip upgrade. I plan to have HEICO SPORTIV in Darmstadt do the motorkit, which includes the chip and the sport exhaust. HP goes from 163 up to 190+! And it really looks cool too. Will also have the front spoiler flaps, the aluminum rings on tac and speedometer and the aluminum pedals installed. Should be a really unique D5 when I'm done. I will wait to see what the factory puts on the Interceptor wheels, and if they are all season tires, probably Michelins, I will also go for the HEICO Volution wheels with 18" summer tires in the Spring of '03. These are absolutely beautiful wheels which I think Volvo is using, or a very similiar wheel, on the XC 90s which I've seen pics of. So any feedback on the D5 experience, and if you've done the chip upgrade, would be greatly appreciated.<br>Best from Bavaria!
