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.
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.
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.
