Just a note on an acrticle in the Volvo Owner Magazine for Canadian Volvo Owners, Seems like at least Volvo Canada is intersted in offering a sports packages for the V40. It seems like they worked in Conjuction with IPD to offer a lowering package, and other goodies. Included on the car are 17x7 Mille Miglia rims, with 215/45x17 Pirelli p7000 super sport tires, strut brace, and rear sway bar. I'll see if I can get the article toi scan and post it for you to look at (note I recall seeing this in world of wheels a few months ago (a Canadian auto magazine).<p><br> <A HREF="http://www.villagephotos.com/pubbrowse.asp?selected=94078" TARGET="_blank">http://www.villagephotos.com/pubbrowse.asp?selected=94078</a> <p> <p><br><BR><BR>

Wow, that is cool. My mom has a V40, and that thing handles pretty tightly stock, with those mods it much be like glue!

Re: Volvo Canada and "performance V40" (GrecianVolvo)

I agree Yannis, even if the car is modded with the extra 40 horsepower it isn't a T5 beater <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emsmile.gif" BORDER="0"> I do think it could be fun though <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emsmile.gif" BORDER="0"><br>BTW I missed the second colum of text in my scan (not much extra info, just sort of tells the other options they put in the car (CD changer, black inlay cooler box). There is a note that if you want more info on the car to email them at [email protected] . I think I just may find out what they have to say.<p><BR><BR>

My cousin, in Greece, has a '98 V40 T4 M...he had 205 HP and after some slight mods (new ECU from Siemens and exhaust plus suspension swaps) he is close to 245 HP...That car IS a terror!<p>Yannis

It's still a good looking car, and you have to hand it to them for spicing up the slow selling V40 line. Now if we could just get a manual tranny.

Manual tranny would attract me more than the sport package, everyone knows you can do mods after...<p>Nahhh, changed my mind. That is pretty perfect <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emwink.gif" BORDER="0"> <BR><BR>
