Just picked up the new daily, 2007, T5, 147 000 km
So oil change and k16 turbo when?
If I had 5k US then I would https://www.elevatecars.com/elevate-volvo-c30-t5-k16-turbo-upgrade.html
Any plans for it other than maintenance? If you were only going to do one performance mod, you'd want to get a tune.
Auto or manual?
Auto. I’ve not thought far enough ahead yet. At this stage I need new front rotors and pads and coolant bottle plus 150 000 km service. Obviously once that’s done and any other maintenance items are done, I’ll have a think. My cousin and I both agree with @Philia_Bear that the 16K upgrade would be awesome
If you need to do brakes you should highly consider the upgrade to the awd spec bigger rotors and calipers and pads for the front
Berry or @timbo might have an extra set of calipers and then you can go with rda slotted and dimpeled or dba t2 rotors with some euro+ pads for amazeballs braking
I think @timbo can also get the coolant bottle for a good price
Also the amm and fps and wideband o2 should be replaced if they have not yet been done they are all very cheap in the grand scheme of things
I do have 2 sets of the 320mm brake upgrade
We will have to discuss :)
Just picked up an 05 v50 t 5 here in NZ 2wd one so should be amusing in the wet not the tidiest--- old person's car many supermarket dents but only 120,000 ks on the clock $500.00 couldn't refuse at the price
Sadly with the lockdown it's 2 hours away and cannot pick it up for perhaps a month when travel is allowed still kicking myself for not getting it the day I bought it and leaving my Honda behind
