Volvo S80 2.4T Privacy Shades

Fitted some Volvo OEM Privacy Shades, which are better than the standard solution. I removed them from the door cards completely.

Volvo S80 2.4T Rezaw-Plast Plastic Skidplate

When I bought the car, it was missing a skidplate. A skidplate has a number of purposes, like protection, keeping dirt out, but also improving underbody aerodynamics and improving cooling and fuel economy of the car. A car is cooled by pulling air through your radiator (by the flow of lower pressure air under your car), instead of purely relying on high pressure on the front of the car.

I bought this Rezaw-Plast one via Motointegrator.de and it had a very good price (33 euro is a steal!). Fitment is very good, aligns well with the stock mounting holes.

Volvo S80 2.4T Plastidipped Grill

I wanted a cleaner look for the front grill and decided to use plastidip instead of the carbon wrap. It came out great and suits the black S80 very well.

I used Motip Removable Coating instead of classic Plastidip and it holds very well till this day.

Also repainted the front trim with bumperspray (which didn’t hold by the way).

Volvo S80 2.4T Custom Exhaust

When fitting the 3″ BSR downpipe, I needed a new exhaust. As a temporary solution, I bought a standard exhaust kit (resonator and backbox) and modified the midpipe (cut the resonator out). It sounds quite nice for a default exhaust, but cannot beat a stainless exhaust 🙂

Volvo S80 2.4T BBS ASA TEC GT3 Wheels (Candy Red)

In the mean time, they have been sold already, but I stumbled upon a pristine set of winter wheels. Not far over the border, I found a 19″ BBS ASA TEC GT3 set in candy red, which on paper should look awesome (black car, candy red wheels).

Unfortunately I wasn’t happy with the looks, but they served me well for 1 winter and I got a lot of feedback on it, which was funny!

The are very heavy, but that is also due to the runflat winter tyres. The combo weighed in a hefty 24.3 kg.
