aye will do, show him up..

plans

18's and slight drop
exhaust
and clear indicators, they are clear at the front and side reps but have indicator things on each corner of the bumper too so need to replace them, that will do for starters..

not fitting a dump valve, would piss me off after a while

A VOLVO

Mav time to get your pipe and slippers out

Only joking S40's are no bad motors, watch the gearbox on them they are prone to popping the linkages off

VOLVO S40 T4 CD

Picked it up today, very smooth and fast drive.
well pleased with it, what a difference to the corsa.
all mod cons including cruise control etc electric everything, good stereo as standard..heated leather....blah blah
200bhp
0-60=7secs
146mph.

plans
18" multi spokes
slight drop in suspension (30mm)
exhaust

a few quick shitty pics, will get good ones later.






Bonnet is open in this one, why it's sitting up..





opinions......

Looks good Mav... Quite like these.

Not sure how quick they are tho, mind racing one in my Birds 1.4 SRi Nova. Stuck with him up the slip road and on to the m-way till 110 when he started slowing down. Got a thumbs up from him tho!

Not the car for Racing tho its more a pimpin motor like!
The plans sound good too.... cant wait to see it in the flesh when done!

It had the T4 badge and looked like yours but silver....
Could have been a looky like!

I raced a Rover Vitesse 2ltr Turbo 200bhp in my Green Machine and he slowly passed me after i got to 110 +... the Nov gave my green Corsa a Run for its money.

Still, it shouldnt be about how fast it is anyway.
I know what i would feel safer in at any speed.... plus i slight lowering and 18's that you talking about its going to look
