Volvo S80 2.4T Upgrading Interior Lights with LEDs

To modernize the car and make it more future proof, I decided the replace as much halogen bulbs with LEDs. I didn’t want the 6500k Blueish tint, but instead opted for a warmer white color, which are a little bit more white than their halogen counterparts. Very happy with the end result!

BMW 140i M-Performance 370BHP / 590Nm Showcase

Teamed up with Driveaholic.nl to shoot some videos of his awesome daily driver, a BMW 140i M-Performance edition with a whopping 370BHP 590Nm (JD Engineering Dynaflow dyno proven, bone stock ECU and no modifications).

Car feels very planted with the wide Michelin Super Sport tyres wrapped around the black BMW 18″ wheels. Suspension and geometry feels good, the power delivery feels very smooth and it never feels dangerous or out of place.

The video shows:

  • small showcase (inc dyno figures)
  • Idle / tickover sound -Revving (pop & bangs)
  • Launch Control (0-60mph / 0-100kmh in 4.6s!)
  • Fast driveby -U-Turn fast cornering (light shake)
  • Driveby – Fast roundabout
  • German Autobahn – Encounter with a Alfa Romeo Giulia 2.2D AWD Veloce

Thanks to Driveaholic.nl for a wonderfull day 🙂

Equipment used:

  • Nikon D5100
  • Nikkor 17-55mm f/2.8 AF-S DX
  • Rode VideoMic Pro



Toyota Aygo Moustache

Added a little personal flair to the Aygo in the form of a white/silvery moustache. Also did this little mod on the Seat Leon.
