Hey everyone, I was wondering if anyone on here know's about the trip computers in the C30's? I have a 2008 C30 T5 R-design that doesn't have a trip computer in it, so would I need to buy a trip computer and install it, or is it already installed and just needs to be activated? Thanks in advance for the help.

I can answer this.

It may depend on where you live. But my 2008 c30 didn't come with the trip computer. But I successfully argued it should have because without it I couldn't tell my speed in mph, when traveling in the US. I live in Canada and often travel to the US.

When they said they couldn't make it happen. I insisted. And it happened. They hooked it up to the computer and installed about 5 things. All with different variables. For example

Litres/100 km or gallons per 100!miles

Average mileage
KM to empty or miles to empty.

Short answer is yes. It should be turn on able.

Im pretty sure its basically a software flash they have to do. You already have the right stalk with the scroll wheel and everything.
I know its a couple hundred dollars or more though.

$300 software upgrade that was a $100 option when ordered new. Became standard in later years.


This in a nutshell, describes everything that is wrong at Volvo.

I couldn't believe it wasnt standard. My 2000 V70 had it.
Then again I dont have cruise control either which my v70 did...

I really dont want to spend more than $150 which is why I haven't done it. Im ok without it, just think it should be standard
