Default Just needing some advice.

Hey everybody my name is Caige and I'm new to owning a Volvo and I was just wanting to know a few things like what are my best choices for a aftermarket exhaust? And what is the best CAI or RAI that I can buy? What are some good aftermarket brand rims? And is there any brand of halo,led or hid headlights and taillights? My car is a 2002 S80 2.9 Any kind of help would really be appreciated! Oh and also does anybody make any custom carbon fiber or colored gauge clusters?

Not going to be alot of help here but here's my 2 cents worth.
Gauges - here's an LED swap tutorial that will give your dash a cool look.
Instrument Cluster Removal And Led Installation Tutorial - Cosmetic and Detailing - Volvospeed Forums

Carbon fiber? Most of the kits I've seen look cheap. Real carbon fiber dash cluster would likely be expensive and offer no benefits in this situation

the early S80 were not meant to be hot rods - they are sprung differently than other volvos and are really too big and heavey . They can be quick for there size but I have suggested to others that instead of trying to make a "Boulevard Cruiser" into a "Stop Light Raver" you try to enhance it's inherent qualities. Improve it's audio, add a back up cam and built in GPS (pops up out of the center speaker grill -how's that for cool?) and so on. Making it a loud boat won't be rewarding.
