Did some suspension tweaks.

B8s! They ride quite good actually. Less harsh over bumps, likely due to the pairing with lowering springs.

Couple more shots from yesterday. Lots of work to go, still!





I was told I need bearings for my Quaife install. Somehow its news to me and I have no idea where to look. Its been a couple years, but can I jog a memory or two for some PN#s?

ScottishBrick,

Does your flywheel make noise when accelerating? I am still breaking it in, but besides the idle chatter, in 4 & 5 at lower rpms it sometimes gets noisy - like a lawnmower. Enough that I am considering Dynamat on the firewall.

No. There is no flywheel noise whatsoever.

You probably are lugging the engine and causing a lot of gear lash vibration (thank you 5 cylinder secondary vibrations). Suggest redline shockproof as the gear oil. Seems to quiet all but the most worn out boxes up nicely.

Time for new summer shoes! PS4s. Oh so good it was worth the wait.





Installed fresh, clear fogs with xpel and yellow bulbs.


Finally wired the front lighting to the cluster.

Finishing touches





A true pleasure to the ears. Tonight’s drive with Vol 2 of Stadium Arcadium was a treat. Hu803 and Hu850 are radically different beasts. Both P2 wagons now have identical audio equipment besides HU.

I enjoy standard audio with HU-603 in my V70. I would say it's even better than ProLogic in P80.
Pro Logic clips the treble horribly. You need to run the premium audio head units in 3ch in all platforms for optimum performance, but it is especially bad with SC-9xx.

I do not share the same opinion. 603 got tossed so fast and was radically noticeable even with stock speakers going to the 803. Then the upgrade to premium speakers was again as radical (as the paper listed a week with the amp). And then again the move to CDs and dynaudio tweeters all around for in car listening really sets an untouchable high standard.

I also found the HU603 impossible to get good sound out of when my mom had her 04 V70.

I actually quite like Pro Logic I in the early P2s, never could get it to sound good in my 05. It does suck that it kills the sub signal though, I assume I'll stop using it once I install my rear tweeters

I guess speakers in my car are pretty minty. Dynamic range is really good. I have heard PLII in FL and P3 models and that sound was definitely better but I'm quite happy with what I have and not looking for upgrade.

Hi all, new here but jumping in with my tuppence….

Have the HU-850 in my 06 OR v70 and I’m generally very happy with the ProLogicII setting - however…I do notice that it reduces the clarity of voice.
The music sounds great but the singing voice is, hmm slightly muted?
