I own a 2002 S80 T6 and live south of Boston.

I am probably going to upgrade my headlights to HID, possibly do the same for my fogs. I think my project this weekend is to clean the haze off my headlights so I can see a little bit better at night.

I dont have a whole lot planned as far as upgrades. I don't see a ton of stuff that can be done for the S80.

Live in Syracuse, NY, kind of Mid-Atlantic kind of New England. I used to be the Treasurer of a Nissan car club and still am an active member of a Nissan forum.

I currently drive a 2005 Volvo S80 2.5T. Stock all around, attempted recently to upgrade to HIDs and failed because of the bulb out warning (I worked with John at Sharp HID and we were unable to solve the issue) system. Otherwise its getting a remote starter in a little over a week (hopefully if there are no issues).

If you want to do it, I'd talk to John at Sharp HID, he is a great resource of info and really well help you along the way. The problem with my car unfortunately could not be resolved, well possibly it could have if I wanted to see if Volvo dealership would flash the car (again no guarantee).

I was very disappointed that it wouldn't work for me, for the few seconds the lights would stay on when the lights first turned on (they'd stay on for about 5 seconds) they were really nice looking.
