I do like the front lip they have for the V70R bumper.<P>I wonder if any vendor would ever consider importing their products...IPD? Anyone?<P>Their coilover kit looks very interesting...<P>Scott, I know you would read this...hehe..let me know if you still haven't found the a/d/s site. Here's the link to that S40 I told you about.<BR> <A HREF="http://www.adst.com/pages/volvo.html" TARGET=_blank>http://www.adst.com/pages/volvo.html</A> <P>

Hey Kai.<BR> I'm gonna send random emails to the members of the volvomanics club in hopes that someone speaks english. Maybe someone from their club can pick me up one of those beautiful front lips. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/biggrin.gif"> Oh well, I can dream can't I?<BR>

Could'nt help but notice your posts regarding the VST aftermarket goods. I've been keeping in touch with several members of the XC Club of Japan via the v70xc.com site and would like to try and help you guys out. Therefore, I've enlisted the help of my wife, who, by the way is native Japanese, to post a message on the Japanese XC Club's BB. I've seen the VST wheels pictured here installed on a couple of their members' XC's. I'll let you know when we hear back from them. In the meanwhile here is a link to some of the XC Club of Japan's mods: <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif"><BR> <A HREF="http://www.geocities.co.jp/MotorCity-Rally/5292/xcpart.htm" TARGET=_blank>http://www.geocities.co.jp/MotorCity-Rally/5292/xcpart.htm</A>

Art, if you pull this VST deal off you'll be a god in my eyes <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/biggrin.gif"> By the way, I love how the Japnese Volvo owners like to switch their clear turn signas to American signals. I guess it's the same reasoning why we want/have clear signals.

Art,<P>Thanks for the help on this as well. We need to find a way to get more aftermarket stuff to North America. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif"> It always amazes me how the Japanese tune and modify their cars, especially the cool stuff they do with the Volvo's in their country.<P>-Drew<BR>

J/k~~ <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/biggrin.gif"><P>Art, what a coincident. I used to know a fellow in Canada and his wife happens to be Japanese, too. He used to have this red 850, and was talking about getting the connection hooked up w/ the VST ppl from Japan.<P>This must have been few years, I think the last time I talked to him online was back in 99. Would you know him by any chance? <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/wink.gif"> <P>I just got lazy, well...basically busy with my C70 project, and didn't follow up with this whole thing. Since the other member found few other pics, I got all into this Japanese style trend again. It has been a long time since I last visited their site. <P>One of the reason I got discouraged about VST was their main focus is on the V70 or the 855 market. I don't blame them, seems like there are more Volvo wagon fanatics over there than in the US.<P>Every now and then, I check back these Japanese sites, but still can't find anything for C70 or other 70 series. It seems that way still, would you happen to know if they have anything for other 70 series as well?<P>Few years back when I posted these links on brickboard, nobody seemed to care too much. I'm glad Swedespeed crowd has much better taste. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif"><BR>

Oops! <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif"> I guess I can blame it on my head cold, Kai!<P>Wagons are far more popular abroad than here. People see them as the versatile cars that they are and appreciate them much more. You can drive for hours in Europe and you will see hundreds of wagons but very few SUVs.<P>As far as this crowd here being different than that at the brickboard, i could not agree more...much more civilized, too! <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif"><P>Yannis<P>

Wow, any of you guys know someone in Japan who might be interested in submitting article coverage from that side of the pond. Looks like they have an awful lot of cool stuff for such a relatively small car market.<P>It's amazing how car crazy countries like Japan and Germany are when you consider how few cars are sold there each year in comparison with the USA. I wish our general population were as car crazy as them.

Yeah, I just wish we could have some sick arse turn out like that here in the States. <BR>Hey..I don't even ask for just new volvos...old and new, everyone is welcome. But we need to organize something like that. In that kinda scale...the meetings they have are just something I doubt we can ever do here in the US. Unless of these official ones from the factory or something.<BR>Also the distance ppl would need to travel in the States is just too inconvenient, not like in Japan...the most would probably take them what...a day to drive to the other side of the country? <BR>Arrgghhh....we need a GTG like that!~~!<BR>

Hey, some of these wheels are FS on ebay, though their source is Bangkok.<BR> <A HREF="http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/aw-cgi/ebayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=601663192&r=0&t=0" TARGET=_blank>http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/aw-cgi/ebayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=601663192&r=0&t=0</A>

Hey Guys,<P>Not too sure how far I'm getting with the VST issue, however, the webmaster of Volvomaniac would like to extend an invitation to anyone who has questions regarding VST (Volvo Sports Tuning) or just about anything else, to post them on his BB. His username is 'Yamifu' and the link to his site is: <A HREF="http://bbs10.otd.co.jp/VOLVOMANIAC/bbs_plain" TARGET=_blank>http://bbs10.otd.co.jp/VOLVOMANIAC/bbs_plain</A> <BR>or: <A HREF="http://bbs6.otd.co.jp/MANIACCAR/bbs_tree" TARGET=_blank>http://bbs6.otd.co.jp/MANIACCAR/bbs_tree</A> <BR>Make sure you type in your HN (Handle name), subject (Below HN), and then the body of your message. We've already noticed a post from Kai. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif"><P>He also wanted me to post the link to his members gallery: <A HREF="http://www.volvomaniac.net/gallery.htm" TARGET=_blank>http://www.volvomaniac.net/gallery.htm</A> <P>Feel free to submit your own pics to Volvomaniac's gallery via e-mail. Just click on the pink envelope.<P>If I hear anything more about VST I'll be certain to let you know. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif"><p>[This message has been edited by Art (edited 02-04-2002).]

In fact, I'll probably reply his email after I'm done posting here.<P>I'll probably start out with just few pictures there, but I'd want to wait for the 'Professional' grade pics that George took last time.<BR>Even though, they don't really have anything for the C70, I'm still very interested in finding out more info on their coil-over kit.
