Title says it all, I move up a little from my 2000 Volvo S40 1.9t, and go up to the 2005 volvo s40 T5 awd. 79,300 Miles
Huge difference obviously.

I am impressed. Lots of cool stuff about it. Lots of mods to do as well :thumbup:

Here are a couple pictures of it








Volvo for life.

I like the silver with black interior :thumbup:

It was unbelievably hard to find any Volvo that I liked with black interior here. For whatever reason almost all of them in my area are tan/beige interior which doesnt work for me.

Tan and beige interiors kill any car, Volvo or not.

Haha thanks everyone! I like the black leather too, there are minor scratches in it but what do you expect from a "used car". Other than that, as for mods, I plan on working on the cosmetics first then go towards the performance edge. Cosmetics including light bulbs headlight especially, Tint but wont go 15 percent like I did with my 2000 s40, something a little lighter, I managed to last 3 years of it without a cop pulling me over for it! Id like to give the car a good growl, so maybe a resonator delete? opinions?

Also sometime soon I plan on changing my oil because I wanna make sure simply I did it (control freak. I trust myself more than a sticker). So a question would be what kind of oil/filter brands do you guys use? and any certain place you get them from for deals? Advise would be cool too, I found the stickies on the main page, and will be going to that quite a bit haha

old car in its final years still lookin great.




Thanks everyone for the quick response, It will be a fun ride and looking forward to share more pictures and videos and some other information as well!

Kyle
