Re: new user to SS! (snoboarder_mike)

Yep, you did come to the right place. Welcome. as far as what to know about the site...<p><A HREF="http://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/ZTlYmM92dJ-dwga206sVvA?feat=embedwebsite" TARGET="_blank"><IMG SRC="http://lh6.ggpht.com/_ubHoKak3DfA/SamUS5TtCdI/AAAAAAAAAHE/dGrZnVnXSno/s800/swedespeedflyer.JPG" BORDER="0"></A><p>For mods, its expensive. people will tell you that you need this or that.<br>Evolve has a bad rep, but theres a few good reasons for it. ipd is great, and Phuz is a member that makes good stuff. You can get a lot of the DP/exhaust custom made if you know a decent place, and for pricing that may be a good way to go.<p>The search function is good for archived posts, but you have to know what to look for. Google search is good only for recent stuff, but easier to use.<p>The big question is, whats your background with cars and with volvos?

Yes,<B> PLEASE</B>.... at least<I> try</I> to do a search before asking the same question that's been asked 500 times before. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0"> <br>Use the <B>SS-google search</B> (above right), not the actual SS search as that's more or less broken <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/rolleyes.gif" BORDER="0"> (for years)
