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 Polyurethane Subframe Inserts

Bought a upgrade for the subframe. The polyurethane bushings are inserted into the rubber subframe bushings, which tightens them up and limit the movement in them.

Highly recommended from a performance point of view (night and day difference when cornering). But be aware, they do introduce vibrations into the cabin. It will take some time before these settle and the vibration will be lower in the end.

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 OEM Rubber Floor Mats

Ditched the old floor mats and bought me some original Volvo rubber mats. They might not look as nice, but they are far sturdier and they are much easier to maintain.

Volvo S80 2.4T Fitting a new Compressor Bypass Valve (CBV)

I noticed some strange behaviour when lifting the throttle and decided to service the CBV aka Compressor Bypass Valve. I was right, car drives a lot better after replacing it with a fresh CBV / DV (Diverter Valve).

I went with an aftermarket TRITDT K5T09671.
