Volvo performance line brakes are 12" not 17, you would have to run 20" wheels with 17" brakes. hahahahaha, can you imagine, those would be ENORMOUS.<p>Road holding kit is the Ohlins kit, dual front/side adjustable remote resivours, and that thing is definitely a refined kit. It gets more solid than base-adjusted konis but without the harshness.

Should have gotten the coilover kit we were doing, much cheaper and real coilover. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emsmilep.gif" BORDER="0">

But I doubt he will be using the KW kit any time soon to do a comparison. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emwink.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: LOOKING FOR UPGRADES (The_one_n_only)

What he is telling me is that maybe you are right 15" rotars what he said is these things can only fit on 17 and 18 rims no smaller..I was confused sorry. No they dont have a website. its out of the volvo book that only dealers get like down here warren henry because they are sponsers for the racing division of volvo..I think I am going to order the sway bars from volvo and the bigger brake kits.
