Default Looking for upgrades

I have a 2008 S80 T6 AWD.

There are 3 things I would like to eventually have done with the car as it does not currently have them:

Xenon Headlights
Back up camera

In regards to the GPS, I believe that the S80's that come with GPS have it rise out of the dashboard, so I am not sure if I can have that done with mine, but looking for ideas.

The headlights I have now are a standard halogen.

I am also not sure if the car comes pre wired to add a rear camera.

Anyway, GPS would be last on my priority list as I use my iphone most of the time, but if anyone has any recommendations on where to purchase these things, or any other suggestions, please let me know.

Default Save your money...

Like you, I would love the built-in GPS and a back-up camera, however, don't waste your money on the lights. I have a 2004 S80 with the high-intensity lights. The bulbs, if they go kaput, are a bloody fortune and the high beams are next to useless compared to other cars I've owned over the last ten years.

Default C70 ECU chip upgrades

Hello all, I am new to the forum and to Volvo. I just bought a C70 2008 convertible. I just upgraded the exhaust with a Flowmaster. Sounds great and I feel the difference. I want to mod the chip to give me better performance, most notably I hope it improves the pedal lag and shift points. Does anyone have any recommendations on some legit performance chip upgrades?

Also, can I upgrade the Turbo to get more power?
