C30 Hello and this is my C30
My name is Ben, I'm new here and almost three years ago I put a deposit down on a 2011 Volvo C30 T5 R-Design in a different state - I really wanted a six speed manual, flew to to Sydney a couple of days later, did a test drive, purchased and drove my car back home to Melbourne. Have had no issues with it and it is a fun drive.
Instead of stockpiling toilet paper and carbohydrates during lockdown, I was able to save some money to upgrade my car. I found this forum a few days ago and started doing some reading. Got a quote from the local Volvo dealership for a Polestar upgrade and also started looking into stage 1 aftermarket tunes... a few days later I have ordered a bunch of stuff plus a stage 2 tune 😅
I have to say, the Volvo community are some of the nicest and helpful people I have dealt with. Shout out to Ash from DVS, Mark from Berry Motor Group, Rob from Hilton and Mark from VP Tuning - Thanks for answering my "noob" questions, and thanks for all the previous questions and answers on this forum.
Just looking for a few more parts to complete my set up (for now). Below are some pictures straight after I picked up the car and I am very much looking forward to making this C30 my own - any advice is welcome.
