Volvo S80 2.4T JR Jetex Uprated Panel Filter

Decided to buy a panel filter from JR / Jetex. Build quality is nice, but could be better. Fitment looked like 100%, but unfortunately that wasn’t the case.

I tried to modify it a little bit, but that went wrong and I had to throw it away.

Volvo S80 2.4T Black Interior Trim

Found a second hand black trim set for the interior, which will replace the “old man” wooden look trimpieces. I started with the upper 2 pieces and will be replacing all bits somewhere this weekend.

It looks way better and more modern.

When I bought the S80, it looked like this.

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 OEM US Lights

I received a tip via a forum member that the P2 chassis Volvo’s (S60 / V70 / S80) have builtin US lights functionality. The EU models only need a different bulb + bulb holder for the side indicators.

Looks absolutely great in combination with the projectors.

Partnr: 9178546 (bulb holder)
Partnr: 989790 (amber p21/8w bulbs)

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.
