Smile Here is a run down of my mods….

First thing I did was window tint… Than shortly after I added the rear spoiler.

Next came the BSR tune, and cat back.

(I don't know how to add a wav file)

After that I added the K&N intake, Down Pipe, lowering springs, and sport grill.

Sound clip w/down pipe & cat back

I also got slotted and drilled rotors for the front but I have yet to install them. Oh and I also got a new shift **** (I guess that counts)

So far that’s it.
There are a few things I have up my sleeve yet. My father gave me some rims nothing special but a nice looking after market. I’m going to have my summer tires put on them. And I ordered the IPD anti sway bar through the group buy that should be here next week.
I have also been eyeing up some CF stuff. I’m not sure how that would look with the black I’d love to see pics if anybody has CF stuff on a black car.

Here are links to the stuff I like….

Mirror caps

I like the S60 roof spoiler also but idk if it would fit my car. Anybody know if it would?

Anyway I’ll add to this as I do more.

i would think your window is narrower, and the one on that website is for an S60... Email them and see if they have one for an S40... Good Looking Car.

Thank you!

I'm outta $$$ at the moment but I will defiantly email them and see if they have one for the S40 when I get some extra again.

I also like to spend money mostly on stuff to make it faster. I got my eye on these also....

Ok I did some mod-ing over the week end... I made a ram air/cold air vent to help get some fresh air up to my intake. I still need to button a couple things up I'll add a few more pics when I do.

Man, with all tha work on it, it should handle and drive like a rocket! I'll eventually do some mods to my 850 but I have 2 more maintenance things to take care of (pcv and new radiator hoses) then on to a new tuned ECU!

It's pretty quick!! I'd love to get it dino tested to see where I'm at. But there aren't any very close.
How long have you had the 850 I really like the look of that car. Your’s looks very clean. It's a turbo right?

Thanks TIPSP. The closest one is a good hour away. How do they do an AWD car anyway?

I've had it Since September of last year. Took me about 3 years to find one that CLEAN!. It is a turbo. It moves a little, though not like an R but TECH was telling me about a chipped ECU. So sometime soon that will be the MOD after my PCV and hoses.

Forgot your AWD...you will have to find one that can do AWD....OR....I believe there is a fuse you can pull to disable the rear wheels.....

Well it looks great! From what i can see if anyone can help you make it go fast that would be Tech. Good luck keep me posted on how it runs with the chiped ECU!

Thanks for the info! I figured there has to be a way to disable the AWD.

Dyno test would be pretty much just bragging rights anyway. lol That and an idea who I can F**k with on the road with being embarrassed.
