Volvo S80 2.4T BSR Optiflow Kit

Bought a new BSR Optiflow kit as I wanted a little bit more blowoff + compressor noise. I can also fit my Velocity Stack filter (150mm diameter).

It has been sold in the meantime as the extra induction noise does not fit the S80 to be honest.

BSR Kit: 4900705
Max HP: 410 HP

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.

Volvo S80 2.4T Replacing vacuum lines with Silicone Hoses

A highly recommended repair / modification for all older Volvo owners. Replacing the old rubber vacuum lines with strong durable silicone hoses. I bought 3 color hoses (red / black/ blue) as the original hoses also have color stamps on them. Old rubber hoses deteriorate from heat and moisture and will fail over time. Replacing them with silicone hoses ensures a proper running car!

VW Golf MK3 GTI, Steering Wheel Cover

Bought a steering wheel cover, as the steering wheel had seen better days. I have done this mod a couple of times before and was always happy with the result, so no hesitation this time 🙂 Again very pleased with the results. Costs about 5 USD from Aliexpress. I chose black faux leather with red stitching for the VW Golf.
