Last week I brought it to the dealer for a couple CPO things that have been bothering me. No biggie...back before the end of the day. Couldn't fix some things but I'll live.<p>Today, go to start the car and it putters and nearly dies. Get a warning light that says "service alarm system." <IMG SRC="http://volvospeed.com/vs_forum/public/style_emoticons/default/huh.gif" BORDER="0"><p>Tonight, walk out of class. Crank the engine, putters and dies. Fun. Crank again and with some persuasion it starts again. Call the dealer again and schedule it in for Thurs and while I'm at it the 45k mile service <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthdown.gif" BORDER="0"> Also about to have to buy new tires sometime this week. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthdown.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthdown.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Hopefully, next week I'll have the KW's in and I'll go into the dealer AGAIN to have my good friend help me give this angel her wings <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/rolleyes.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Anyway. Just reflecting on some Volvo experiences this month. At least I'll end on a high note! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/embeer.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/embeer.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: Recent events with the S40 (BtownVolvo)

Re: (BtownVolvo)

You lowered it quite a bit....FWD right? I have the AWD and I don't think I'll find anything that will lower my car like yours.

Yea that's the "future plans" photoshop. But i'm hoping to be at least that low on the sidewall by next week. And I think I might change the painted trim to just keeping the black theme. We shall see!

Re: (BtownVolvo)

I love the gunmetal color. What color is your car again? Is it the one photoshopped? What color is that (I am color deficient so I can't tell if it is a gunmetal or if that is the ti grey).

Re: (BtownVolvo)

Nice! I really like it. Excited to see your drop. I am trying to get my KWs installed this weekend, but have been waiting for the replacement springs and to get my buddies fender roller.

Re: (carreragt7)

Likewise! It'll be good to compare V1's to V2's. <p>Let the race begin!!! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/embeer.gif" BORDER="0">
