That was Belle too? Hmm...

In a few months, you'll understand why her name is going to be Belle. Something along the the lines of Blue Bell... ;)

93k miles. No mods installed until 60k, and the timing belt has just been replaced. So it's an excellent starting ground.

I know I didn't build this car up from stock, but you have to give me some credit since I installed most of these parts on the S40 already. ;)

Pics? Too lazy to sign up for C30 Crew. :D
Don't worry, I figure a lot of SwedeSpeeders won't want to sign up for Crew, so I'll post duplicates of everything on both forums.

I don't have any good pictures yet, just what's from the listing and I don't want to share those... I'll get some pics tomorrow though :D

The Journey to Belle

6AM flight, sunrise over Virginia.



Wendy picked me up in Trenton, NJ. After some fun adventures in Beacon, NY, we headed up to Oswego to meet MadderMax and exchanged a piece of paper that represented money for a piece of paper that represents ownership of a C30.

After years of waiting / searching, I'm finally in my dream car :D Previously owned by MadderMAX, this is starting off as a near clone of my old S40, but I will be adding to that list very quickly.

Lake Ontario in the background:


Spent last night with a couple other C30s, then came back to Atlanta today.



...And now the true fun begins :)

Wasting no time, let the mods begin!

Swapped over the super bright Cree LED reverse bulbs from my S40. I need to order new LED bulbs for the license plate lights, anyone know which size they are off the top of their head? I could always measure or dig up the LED thread, but it never hurts to ask.




LED H11 Fog bulbs, 6000K, and regulated LED city lights.




Swapped over the brushed aluminum foot rest; so happy to finally have 3 pedals.




Just an FYI, I cannot clear coke cans.



Went to show my parents the new car...
Mom: "Whoa this is low! Are you going to try to fix that?"
Me: "Yes, it needs moar low!!!!"
