Volvo S80 2.4T Splitter Lip

Fitted a Aliexpress rubber lip on the front end of the S80. Looks good!

I used paper clip binders as the supplied tape will not hold well. No drilling required 🙂

Volvo S80 2.4T Pierburg TCV 7.22908.03.0

Replaced the Aliexpress Pierburg valve with a brand new original Pierburg unit. These are also known as the “Porsche” TCV and sold by ARDideas. Must have part for about 20-30 euro.

The difference is noticeable, especially when driving with half throttle.

Volvo S80 2.4T Projector Headlight Retrofit

Bought a retrofit projector kit which will be fitted in OEM Volvo headlights for my S80. This will ensure that using HIDs or LED will not blind other drivers. The projector kit was sourced from Aliexpress. They are bixenon, but you can just snip off the wires as this functionality is not needed in the S80. The high beams are a separate H7 bulb.

Highly recommended, fitting them is quite easy. There is no butyl or permaseal used on these headlights. Only a small number of metal clips are used to gain access to the headlight internals.

I bundled them with H1 Led units, there give a tremendous amount of light without disturbing other road users.

Bought a long LED strip and mounted it next to the 3rd brake light cluster.

Should be a lot safer and looks good 🙂
