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

Hey..Congrat and welcome to Swedespeed. So, what int. color does it have? How about the wheels?

Hehehe..if you have the 18 inchs and wanna sell them, be sure to let us know.
I know few people who would like to get their hands on a set.

Show us some pics of it when you get it. Good luck~

The car has dark grey interior... more like black to me...

the wheels are the common 17 inch 5 spoke alloys. i like them. THe 18 inch ones are new i think.. the 2002 models have them. havent really seen what they look like though.

i will definitely get some pictures when i get the car... and have some time to clean her up, in and out

Rob with his 262 Racer has MAGNAFLOW muffler on his. It sounds pretty cool, a good alternative for UltraFlow.

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."

18" Triton:


17" Propus:

!!!!!

So, you don't want those 18s? Since you got lucky on this one, does it mean that you will be selling these 18s at very good price?


Hehehe...better email me instead. I know few others on SS have been waiting for a set to surface.
