Re: Looking for Modifications! (pyousefi)

Hi and welcome to Swedespeed. <p>The biggest supplier in the US with a nice catalog is IPD. Try <A HREF="http://www.ipdusa.com" TARGET="_blank">http://www.ipdusa.com</a> . I think AutoSkandia out near Dulles is a distributor for them, and at one time they owned one of IPD's S70 project cars, though last I heard it was up for sale.<p>There's also Martin Motorsport in Alexandria. I don't have a phone number, and have no experience with them as a shop. I just know they are local and know they cater to Volvos and Porsches.<p>You might also do well to introduce yourself to the_one_n_only ( one of our users, Kai ) who is also from the DC area and has a VERY modified C70 coupe. <p>We get together once in a while (the DC area people). Come on out sometime. BTW, welcome to Swedespeed.

Re: Looking for Modifications! (pyousefi)

Hey, just sent you an IM over AIM.<br>Welcome to Swedespeed indeed. I never expect to find another C70 owner in this DC/MD metro area; especially, someone who lives so closed to me. I'm just glad now we'll have a chance to have two nicely modified C70 roaming in the quiet neighborhood of Potomac some time soon.<br>So modification, eh? Where do you want to start? Maybe if you want, we can always meet up one of these days and compare notes. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emwink.gif" BORDER="0"><p>BTW, Geroge, you sick puppy..you just barely got home from PA, and you are posting everywhere already!? :-D Nice GTG, Geroge. I just wish our buddy pyouselfi had known us a bit earlier, or he could have been at the GTG with us guys.

Re: Looking for Modifications! (VolvoMax)

IPD is the only source I can think of, although a friend of mine did send some pictures of few C70s in Europe with different styles of spoilers.<p>Not too sure since I'm not too fond of spoiler look on the C70. I wonder if something like the E46 M3 type of trunk lid spoiler will look nice on the C...<p>Maybe someone else here can shed some light on this.<p><I>*Originally posted on VVSPY hoping a normal reply would bring the thread up a notch, but I'd rather post on Swedespeed over that site anyday. Less flame, less hassle, more space for useful discussion.</I>

Yeah, I'm hoping one of these nights I can drop by after work to chat with him a bit. It should be pretty awesome to see two silver C70 roaming around togethere like that. <p>I'll be getting the digital camera ready...hehee..I know Mike has been asking for the pic on the HID balast location forever. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emsmilep.gif" BORDER="0"> Sorry about that....

Re: Looking for Modifications! (mike_c70)

I don't like the looks of a spoiler on the coupe, either ... the body lines are soo nice, I think a spoiler detracts from them.<br>What year is your C70?<br>What type of mods would you want? (performance, appearance, audio)<br>I didn't notice that big of a difference with an ECU and exhaust, but wheels and lowering would sure make a difference!

Re: Looking for Modifications! (Paul L)

yeah, a drunk lip spoiler would like tight though, like kai said, the new M Tres looks nice with it.
