Hey guys! I just want to introduce my self to the forum! My name is Jaydee and I'm 16 and I own a 1998 V70. It's black w/tan leather. I'm about to purchase some H&R springs and lower 1.3 inches. Besides that... it's stock. If you have a V70... please post some images. Thanks! After I drop it I'll post some images. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/biggrin.gif">

Hey Jadee,<BR>Wise choice on the V70, is it a T5 or a GLT or non turbo?<BR>I think you'll love the H&R's, everybody seems to like them<P>Take Care,<P>

If you email your pics to us, we're working on an owner's gallery in the main sections of our gallery. Gallery is located in the Swedespeed/Resources/Gallery section. We just launched our first one in the 240 Gallery last week.

I believe it's a non-turbo, but does anyone know where I can find aftermarket products for Volvos? And does anyone know where I can find oem parts for Volvos? Because I know Volkswagen and Audi has a big aftermarket, but it seems like Volvo doesn't. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/rolleyes.gif">

It's growing, but slowly. If you watch our banner advertisers, there are some good ones up there. There's also TME, Heico Sportiv etc. in Europe. The Volvo aftermarket in the US is more like VW was in the late 80s early 90s. It's not as developed, but there's some cool stuff out there.

I have my wife's highschool Peugot down in the basement next to my college Cannondale. That 'dale is old, and boy is it lighter than that Peugot. Talk about bricks.

When I was 16 (1989ish) I had a 76 244 DL. It was beige (yuck) with a brown front left quarter panel and an orange hood. Of course it also had the brown cloth interior (Classy).<P>Jay
