Re: Just picked up a 2004 S60R (BryanR)

Congrats on the R. I picked up my '04 this past December. How many miles are on it and what interior did you get? Looks Nordkap through the passenger side glass but I can't tell for sure.<p>Any performance mods in your future???

The picture is giving that illusion, the car is kinda on a hill and the road has a slope on either side.

Sweet R. Looks nice and clean. Good luck!<p>How many miles on it? I ask because I just did my brakes on my '04 at 49K and the rotors were okay. You may not need to change them unless they are warped or moderately grooved.<p>Just saw you're in RI. Get youR aRse up to the cars and coffee in Woburn, MA this Sunday. Here's the link:<p><A HREF="http://forums.swedespeed.com/zerothread?id=118015" TARGET="_blank">http://forums.swedespeed.com/zerothread?id=118015</A><p>Quite a few of us will be there, it's a good time and real casual gtg.

Re: (BryanR)

They look a little warped up at the edges towards your grill. Sh8kdwn has a recent post on a DIY replacement or you can buy of the shelf (if you care).<p>At last I think that is what I'm guessing was seen...

Re: (BryanR)

Both the exhaust and DP are being custom built by a local performance shop called IPS Motorsports (<A HREF="http://www.ipsmotorsports.net" TARGET="_blank">http://www.ipsmotorsports.net</A>). I had my car at their shop yesterday for final measurements and to test fit a custom part they had machined for the DP. BeerEngineer actually introduced me to them via a dyno day we did back in March (thanks Zak).<p>They are big in GM tuning (had 3 customer Z06s in front of their shop when I was there) but also do a lot of work on 3000GTs, SRT4's (and other MOPAR products) as well as Evos, STIs, G35s, Audis, etc. Follow the link above or search youtube and you'll find their world record setting 1/4 mile Vette. I've seen both the orange and yellow vette's in person...wicked is all I can say.<p>After DP and exhaust, we're going to talk about doing a FMIC and CAI and maybe a custom tune once they've had more time to research and tinker with the R. If all goes well, they plan to use my car to develop production worthy parts to market to other R owners. I'll post more on this in a separate post once we're further down the path.<p>Another supplier of performance parts for the R there soon may be. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

I have an 04 as well and am looking at pads/rotors in the near future as i'm nearing 67k.
