Hello.

I create a thread about my car here.

The car is a Volvo S60 2.0T 2002 model.
180 hp / 240nm

Bought the car of my father, when he bought a new Volvo :)
He had the car for 4 years before I bought it.

The car has just 180.000km on the counter. The car is in super good condition :)

This was done with the car before i bought it:

- Lowered 30/30mm H&R springs

- 8x17" Rims (Bought 18" R rims)

Things to do / Completed

- 3" JT eksos (Cat-back with 3 silencer)

- BSR airfilter kit

- 18" R rims

- Removed Headlight wipers

- Removed towbar

- R- frontbumper from Facelift 05 -->

- R- rearbumper from Facelift 05 -->

- Painted door lists

- Painted engine covers

X - Rearwing (iridium)

X - Roofspoiler (Iridium)



Exhaust bought:


BSR optiflowkit:


"New" rims bought:

What do you think?

Best regards:

Great car, could use a set of the R headlights or the projector conversion that is on here somewhere but for the rest it looks really great.
I'm a great fan of the R bumpers and hoping that I can get my hands on one somewhere this year. I'm in the netherlands so if you could keep an eye out for me that'd be great (closest one I found so far is in Poland).

Also those are some good pictures you made love it!

Thank you for that :)

R headlamps is my plan :)

I'll keep my eyes open for a R bumper to you
It is not easy to get hold on one here in Norway. I was lucky to get hold of this that was in good condition :)

Thank you for that :)

Some new parts er comming :





Looking forward to paint it and get it onto the car :D:D

That's exactly what all S60's should have looked like when leaving the factory (not sure about the eyebrows). Even though you're missing the R rear spoiler lip...
Very nice transformation, but as usual, the devil lurks in the details, so here it goes:
1. Exhaust - R's have twin pipes and you continue with the single one - what does it look like in close-up? Is it very obvoius from the side/rear, that the original design has it differently?
2. Rear bumper mounts apparently are the same and do not need to be exchanged when installing R-rear bumper - can you please confirm?
3. Front bumper mounts and front absorber&mounts - any differences there?
4. You deleted (or forgot to install back...;)) front headlight wipers - any plans there? Do you intend to cover-up the original wiper holes?

Love the effect of your work so far.

I totaly agree With you. All S60's should look like that, Stock:)

Yeah, i know im missing the R rear spoiler. But i think the R spoiler is to small :p

1: Yep, i know that the R exhaust has the twinpipe. But i think the single pipe is good looking:) I will take a Close up pic of the exhaust:)

2: The rear bumper brakets are NOT the same on the 00-04mod s60. (I have bumper's from 05-> ) So if you have a 00-04 mod s60 you will need New brakets and stuff like that:)

3: New Mounts on the side for the frontbumper needed.

4: The headlight wipers is removed for a cleaner look:) I have covers for the holes:)

The rear bumper is very nice looking.
Thank you:) The bumper is from a 07 S60R :)
