Hello everyone! Just joined the Forum.<p>I am soldier stationed in Ansbach, Germany. Proud owner of 2009 Volvo C30 T5. I love this car! First seen it when I was in Iraq on the cover of Automobile Magazine for the 2008 All-Stars and the rest is history! Purchased through military sales and my "test drive" was the day I picked her up! No complaints so far.<p>She is a Nurburgring and German Race Wars veteran(hehe). Clocked some pretty good times and she held her own against some decent vehicles.<p>No Mods yet, but I am open to suggestions! Nice meeting you all!

Welcome to Volvo!<p>If you are into wanting to go faster you are in the right place. Here is a list of mods in no certain order. Some like doing all the supporting mods first then doing an ECU upgrade for the final big finale of power.<p>1. ECU Upgrade<br>2. FMIC<br>3. Down Pipe<br>4. Exhuast<br>5. Intake upgrade... (Evolve comes to mind)<br>6. High flowing filter<br>7. Aftermarket Turbo Kit *** If enough is never enough ***<p><IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> Enjoy your ride!

saw the video of that. Looks like if you had more grip with your tires you would have been closer at the end. <p>

If you saw it from the front Angle... she red lighted that run... the 2nd run wasnt even close. I just gave it too much RPM out the gate the first run and spun the tires too much...where did you see the vid.. Youtube? and Can I get the link

Better tires I hope and if you got to chip it, you might give that ST a surprise!
