Amazing bro - exactly what I wanted to do to mine...

Did you take to a body shop to install the diffuser or do it at home.

Took it to a body shop, to be painted and installed.

Thanks!

I personally think it looks cleaner and wasn't a fan of the spaced out Volvo...

I feel we over do it with badges over here in America, I believe debadge (engine info) is an option or even default option in Europe. I guess it's just what we are use too and sometimes others want the opposite such as white reflectors vs. orange.

Chris,

Heico no longer has an exclusive distributor model. ViVA Performance is an authorized Heico Reseller (we have been for 2 years+), and continues to offer a wide variety of their products. We even have a number of Heico goodies for Volvo models no longer in production (P1, P2, P80 cars, etc)

Got my rear diffuser and quad exhuast installed finally. Got to plug the sensor holes and slight adjustment to the tail pipes is needed.
Sounds amazing, a much deeper sound then expected, lower rpm has a nice groan to it as well.

Here's some quick pics to share



hey, what did the body kit and shift knob cost?

I bought that stuff almost 3 years ago so my figures might not be accurate, if I remember correctly the shift knob was about $200 and the quad exhaust with the rear skirt was around $2000.

The guys at Volvo said the install went great, very straight forward.
Going to lift the front just a tad, alignment tomorrow and will snap more and better pictures over the weekend (sorry for the crappy phone pic and dirty car...)




Rear is at lowest, front goes crazy low!! I think I may need some spacers in the rear, I know viva sells 15mm, this might work. For the front might need less, anyone know where I can get 5 or 10mm for our cars, I only see 15mm? And no haven't driven it yet, but the installer said it's amazing.

I still have not been able to fully experience the KWs, alignment is a little out of whack, going first thing tomorrow morning.

But I did take my regular route in work today and I would cringed every spot where my previous setup would crash, thinking it would be worst... Nope, what a surprise! On some bumps it actually feels smoother than stock, what a solid feel, very quiet and no crashing. Compression and rebound acts so quickly sometimes it surprises me lol - I'm sure I'll get use to it.
Car feels stuck to the pavement, honestly KW's rock!

Hey! May I ask? How is the road at your country? What is the road condition where your car normally commutes? I would like to know because I live in Thailand and there are many many many many imperfections on our roads, lots of potholes and stuff. Will KW handle that kind of road well?
