Re: (ForceFed Motorsports)

If my eyes don't betray me that is NOT the OEM trim kit, but the MS Design kit. I should know since my car is running the exact same configuration right now, missing lip and all! Get that car, it is sick! And we all know my front lip goes very well with the MS Design kit. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0">

The one with angel eye's belongs to Mao (Mao'sS40 or something similar). it also has the evolve kit. <p>ForceFed, it looks like one of the cars that H&M Motorsports in oregon made. They're S40's are known for the MS Design kit (with Grille and rear wing) and 18" Pegs. The web site in the add says they will run a carfax report on the car. Any word back from them yet?<BR><BR>

Just out of curiosity, do you not have an S40 yet? I would of swore you already had one. And why an S40 instead of an R?

Re: Seattle boys seen this car, might have found my T5... (mad matt)

Nope i dont lol. Just been on here helping others since i have a lot of hand on experience with volvos being a tech at King Volvo.<p>As for why the S40.... i like the look and feel of how they drive. Not a huge fan of the S60 body style nor the manual trans either. My wifes not really into the 60 and if shes happy then i can spend more <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0">

Going from a honda power junky to a S40 is enough of a transformation lol. All my buddies including my brothers at 2020 Motorsports (shameless plug lol) thought i was crazy until i showed them some pics and what plans i had for it and they came around.
