Its a 2008 S60 2.5T, alot planned. for now all I have done is installed a HID kit and put a little stereo in. Plans for the future include a boost gauge, volt meter gauge(both ordered) led light swap. Rims, Lowering springs (I would do a coilover kit but the price is crazy expensive). for now thats whats in store. after that I will start with exhaust mods and engine/ecu upgrades. heres some pics.



my first stereo set up...








this is the stereo I have in it now.




This is what I plan on putting in it. its a mtx thunder 9500(the one on left) this thing is huge it has a 260oz. magnet. is 1000 watts rms and 3000 watts peak.





Sorry for HUGE pics. took long enough to figure out how to load em up. Hope you like my pics. comment and let me know what you think.

Welcome. My 01 is the same color. I have Koni yellows and H&R lowering springs with 10mm spacers up front and 5mm spacers out back. Worked out pretty well. IPD, Viva Performance and Eurosport Tuning are good sources for performance parts.

Or a tune from any other reputable tuner (BSR, RICA, Autotech, IPD)

You mean 5mm in the front and 10mm in the back? I am running 10mm front and 15mm rear on Bilsteins and Eibachs with plenty of room.

Hey guy. Is that one of them there volvos?
:confused:

That would be my first reccomendation but OP seems to have priorities in different order: HIDs, lots of speakers, LEDs, rimz, and then engine/exhaust.....lol. to each their own right!

Yeah because it's not like Lucky had nothing to do with IPDs *rollseyes*
Lucky didn't write the tunes for IPD, that was always done by Marco at MTE in Sweden. The service and quality between ARD and MTE are not comparable, hands down ARD for both quality of tuning and customer service. But RICA, BSR, MTE, Autotech still offer viable services, depends on what you need really.

@NJGB

10s scraped out back. I am running Tethys with Kumho ECSTA ASTs. They appear to have fairly thick shoulders. I put the 10s up front and ordered 5s for the rear. I guess each tire/wheel combination is different.

I getcha. I thought he helped with the IPD tune. I'm just misinformed.
