Welcome aboard! Where did you get your car if I may ask? I service my car at Calabasas Volvo. I usually hang out in the Southbay, El Segundo, Redondo Beach area usually. If you see a blue C70 speeding down the 405, that would be me <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif">

Rob with his 262 Racer has MAGNAFLOW muffler on his. It sounds pretty cool, a good alternative for UltraFlow.<P>Did you find any speed shop in your area that can do fab one for you? Well, last time I talked to Scott at IPD, he told me that they do offer one for our cars. It's a bit pricey b/c it's from overseas. Hopefully, they have sorted something with some shop to help them build these for them more cheaply.

I believe the only 18" wheel offered on the C70 was the "Triton," with 20 spokes. There's also a 17" version that looks the same, but with 18 spokes, called "Propus."<P>18" Triton:<BR> <IMG SRC="http://www.sawvolvo.com/wheels/91921429.jpg"> <P>17" Propus:<BR> <IMG SRC="http://www.volvoworld.com/photo_pieces/9192142.jpg"> <P><P>

Since you got lucky on this one, does it mean that you will be selling these 18s at very good price? <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/wink.gif"><P>Hehehe...better email me instead.
