Two nice cars. Same path I took (drove my S70 for 14 years and 175K miles).
I really like my S60 and I'm sure you will, too.

I just recently upgraded to an S60 T5, after my 2003 S40 died with 238,135 miles on it :(

I agree, bitter sweet. But, after driving the new car for a day, I had forgotten about my trusty S40.

Welcome! Both cars look great. You'll enjoy the S60 for sure, though.


Did you ever find why your S40 died?
Engine seized on the NJ turnpike, while driving to work. :(

All I know is that my arrival date into port should have been 5/21. I have not bothered the dealership as I was expecting an early June delivery. That is good because that allows me to build up my down payment a wee bit more.

Nice. Not wasting any time! Are you doing shocks/struts, too?

Hey guys, so the rest of my heico products came in today!

I would like to thank Todd and the team at Heico NA for all there help. Great service, very knowledgeable and friendly! After many phone calls, emails and even a visit to there facility I finally decided on wheels, well Todd convince me:) Thanks for putting up with me!

I just have some questions; Looked through the instructions, seems like the current exhaust pipe needs to be cut and after installed with clamps, spot welding... can someone chime in and confirm?

As for the rear diffuser it says I should use red handpads or p400 water grinding papper for first grinding and then p800, will my body shop do all this? And should I do a test fit first before paint?

Thanks in advance! Here are some pics.
