Hey everyone, I just thought Sven looked really good after his bath today. He's a 1995 850 GLT NA automatic. About 140k on the clock. Its up to stage 0 (rotor, wires, plugs, flushes, all that good stuff), also a K&N air filter, new rear muffler, did the brakes 2 days ago. Looking to add a little more performance though. I'm going to be doing the suspension this week (sway bars, springs, shocks/struts), and gonna check out and change the steering parts if need be. Anyhow, let me know what you guys (and gals) think! Any suggestions are appreciated, not looking to do anything "crazy" as its my daily driver, but I wouldn't mind a little more "omph" off the start. Ha-Ha. <p>(yes thats a 1993 960 in the back, Olga as we like to call her, there is also a 850 turbo wagon behind her, aka Ivald)<p><IMG SRC="http://photos-g.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc1/hs102.snc1/5006_102463891985_657926985_2535454_2250605_n.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://photos-b.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc1/hs102.snc1/5006_102463861985_657926985_2535449_5242522_n.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://photos-c.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc1/hs082.snc1/5006_102463866985_657926985_2535450_4307237_n.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://photos-d.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc1/hs082.snc1/5006_102463876985_657926985_2535451_4566914_n.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://photos-e.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc1/hs082.snc1/5006_102463881985_657926985_2535452_7345872_n.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://photos-f.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc1/hs082.snc1/5006_102463886985_657926985_2535453_7361010_n.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>

GLTs were LPTs starting in '97. <p>Only worthwhile things you can is 2.5" exhaust (no bigger), K&N filter, better ignition components and an inmotion ECU. <p>Even then, 200bhp if you're lucky.

Did you put that R spoiler on yourself or did you get it like that?

Re: FV-QR (gilber33)

I haven't done anything to the exterior besides painting the grille. Other than that, the car is exactly as it came when my grandmother bought it when i was 6. I want to do a few cosmetic changes, but I'm not sure what i want to do yet. Any suggestions?
