    caseycamby's S40 T5 AWD

    Well I guess I'll make one of these things. It'll probably be anticlimactic but somebody may want to see!

    So yesterday I picked a 2005 Volvo S40 T5 AWD with just 68,000 miles off of Craigslist. I needed something better on gas and to keep the wear and tear off of the X. Turbo AWD doesn't hurt either

    Nothing too major planned as of now. Probably some new wheels, couple LEDs swapped in, and maybe a few suspension upgrades to help with the cornering. It's gonna be the daily so I can't go too crazy, but I have to do something.. I just can't drive a bone stock vehicle haha








    Stay tuned for some Swedish madness!

    First little mod today! Need some opinions.. Amber or stick with what's there now?

    Left is stock halogen, right is the white LED




    Close up of the white LED




    Here is the amber LED that actually stays on the front corner of the X. This just has the single diode at the end, not all the way around so it'll look more similar to the white LED as far as its projection.




    Just a couple of full shots with the white LEDs on both sides

    I am insanely jealous! I've loved Volvos for years. I'm picking up an XC70 AWD wagon this summer as a daily driver.

    Enjoy it

    Digging the Volvo! You know how I feel about the lighting. Always loved Volvos. Once my daughter is older and we don't need to haul around the world, I'm thinking about an xc60.

    I will consult Prime or Muadeeb when I am unsure how to wire something. Even if I think I am sure, I will have them double check me.

    Obviously I'm going for a rally build, inspired by that exact picture
    A very subtle one, but nonetheless. All-terrain tires, some driving lights, a CB.

    Nnnng, yours is pretty.
