Welcome! The dye actually matches pretty well with the paint. Looks good! Any plans for a body kit in the future?

Re: Some Pics (VolvoS405spd)

Hey, as for my plans for the future.... Since I'm a broke college student I don't see myself buying anything to expensive. I deffinitely want to boost it but before I do that I wanna get the nock off Type R rims in 18's and an aggresive drop. <p>Heres a lil pic of my previous boosted car <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0"> <br>The SloFire<p><IMG SRC="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v652/sunfiregtcustom/DSC009112.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>but thats long gone since Volvo boned me in trade in value haha <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/frown.gif" BORDER="0">

wow, your Sunfire looks similar to mine, I had the RK sport body kit , also the after pic looks similar, it's also been somewhat wrecked (I sold it first) new owner did it. <p>As for springs, I've got Heico for a 1.3" drop, but Evolves are 1.5" any more than that calls for Coil overs

Re: Some Pics (VolvoS405spd)

Hey I like that stance! Hows the ride quality? You should dye the plastics! it wasnt hard at all and I didnt have to take the side skirt off, just make sure you tape it well!

Re: Some Pics (VolvoS405spd)

I even drove the volv on a dirt road and didnt have a problem! <p>The intake I pieced it together at autozone for about 45-50 bucks. real easy job! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">
