he Volvo bug first bit me in 2008 whilst living in Belgium,
when I was given a reliable green 1995 850GL by my father
in law to drive around France for a road trip. New to wagons,
I found the versatility of extra cabin space blended with an undeniable safety record impossible to resist. After my last car was written
off due to freeway accident, I headed straight to Volvo and did some
test-drives. I fell in love with the 2004 V70R but it was financially out of
reach. Then I came across a beautiful blue 2002 V70XC Ocean Race
edition and invested immediate interest. Unfortunately I was too late
as it was sold before I could negotiate a formal offer. A second Ocean
Race edition became available interstate and I swooped, again only
to receive a ‘déjà-vu’ experience. Third time lucky. I received a phone
call from the second dealer who had just taken delivery of a very rare
loaded factory manual 2002 XC70 that had originally been a special
order from Sweden. Needless to say, I put down a deposit and secured it immediately. I bought the car and had it shipped on a 2-week
journey across Australia. Mission accomplished.
After previously owned a daily driver, full race built EK Civic Type R,
2 Lexus/Toyota Soarer SC400, a highly modified 400hp Toyota Lexus/SC400 with Adaptronic, Supercharged and Intercooled, modifying
a Volvo to a satisfying level of performance was going to be a real
challenge. Having tasted success on the racing track with the Civic
and with a collection of high-powered V8s behind me, why Volvo?
Why not.
My first intentions were to have a car you
shouldn’t touch. I mean, why would you want
to modify a Volvo. Its something rarely done,
its different and unique in a land saturated by
heavy 6litre v8s and Japanese imports, who
could argue. It is true, Volvos are synonymous
with going slow in the fast lane, annoying other
motorists with straw hats and with no intention
to reach the highway speed limit. People always
comment about thinking outside the square, I
thought about thinking inside the square for a
change. If I am going to pull this off, I need this
XC70 to keep its original Swedish good looks
but with the element of surprise.
First, I have learned Volvos do not like to be
modified. They tend to have that annoying electrical gremlin that surfaces each time you try
touch something. Having said, the principles of
tuning still remain. With an XC70 pre equipped
with factory upgrades such as sunroof, full
powered driver and passengers seats, HU-803
with centre speaker, rear spoiler and LE mircontinued on page 2 • 800-444-6473

rors, I had a good platform to begin with. The
very first aftermarket modification part for my
XC70 was an iPd Heavy Duty Turbo Control
Valve. Pleased with the results and positive
support from iPd’s Rob ‘Lucky’ Arnold, I later
bought an iPd Heavy Duty Compressor Bypass Valve and several items from another
tuning company EVOLVE.
My primary aim is to keep my XC70 a
cross country but with the power and performance of a V70R. As both cars share similar
looks, the R has been treated with a bag of
cosmetics that actually work. Who can resist
the big Brembo brakes, 300hp KKK24 turbo
and Xenon headlights and better suspension. Everything is compatible right? Well
not everything.

V70R sport springs to lower the stance of
the XC70, the rear became too low and the
camber was so far out I needed new rear
tyres within 3 weeks. Then my front right
shock absorber blew. Needless to say, I paid
the price for incorrect advice on the springs
resulting in the added expense of reinstalling the stock rear springs. The fronts were
again removed and rebuilt with new struts,
XC90 seats and the EVOLVE springs.
As a designer by profession, I like things
to be different. I want my XC70 to be different but I became attached to the gorgeous
interior looks of the R. Having decided not to
fully clone the R into an XC because it would
be too expensive and silly, I put a clear limit
on parts to exchange. First, I sought a rare

ca. This proved to be a testing mission of
patience and persistence as the R cluster
needed a plethora of custom work to function in the XC. After about the 20th attempt
to have the dials illuminated and functioning to a satisfactory level, I moved to the
engine bay. I purchased and installed V70R
blue engine covers and had the OTE pipe re
sprayed silver. This is where the fun really
Early in 2010 I purchased an engine upgrade tuning tool as part of a forum group
buy. This was to increase the power from
200hp to 240hp, bringing the XC70 to life.
Peter Carvall, the tuning guru from the Swedish company AUTOTECH, built the tune and
liaised with me what was needed to have the
performance of an R and add some. Lucky
from iPd has been consistently helpful with
advising what parts I need, supplementary
to his informative videos on the ipd website.
I purchased and had installed a bigger
V70R down pipe, a higher output TD04L16T turbo, a set of higher flowing white
350cc injectors, iPd’s HD CBV, and a new
air intake. Needless to say, this really made
a difference. Other cosmetic purchases followed, including a set of 18” S60R Pegasus wheels, EVOLVE AMS and hood vents,
a Philips 6000k Xenon headlight kit, EST
chrome stereo dials, 3 spoke S60 steering
wheel, full wood-grain interior treatment and
a 1kw power inverter for the tailgate. I had
the roof rails painted in Heavy Duty silver
paint and had installed a set of interior LED
interior lights and a new fire extinguisher.
Over Christmas I took delivery of a set of
rare 2007 Active Bi-Xenon headlights but
they arrived damaged and need to be fully
rebuilt. Another expense I don’t need.
Presently, I am testing a 300+ hp stage 4
tune from AUTOTECH, which is handing me
some challenges. The 16T turbo is pushing
over 20psi and causing a flutter in 4th and
5th gears. Needless to say, first second and
third on throttle pulls the Volvo harder than
my old v8 and with an estimated 450+ Nm
of torque who could argue. The good part is,
it still looks like a slow Volvo XC70 and that
helps keeping the police off my back.

Scott’s 2001 XC70 Project Update
Prices subject to change. See website for most accurate pricing.
By: Scott Hart
Here’s the car with the Volvo 2008 accessory Bi-Xenon Projector headlamps installed.
Last spring we wrote a few articles in
our newsletter about buying 5-10 year old
Volvos for s as daily drivers. Sort of a mini
buyers guide of best models and what to
look out for etc. In one of the articles we
showed photos of two cars we picked up
to fix up ourselves, a 2004 V70R that we
have been using to develop out stage
III kit on and a 2001 XC70 that I wanted
to do some minor exterior mods on. The
2004 V70R project was updated in the last
newsletter, which you can read about here.
At the time I was already driving a nice
2001 XC70, but was sort of getting bored
with it. The one I had was dark blue and
didn’t lend itself well to graphics and some
other exterior mods I wanted to do, so I started hunting for a clean white example. I found
one pretty quickly, drove it about a month
to make sure it was a good candidate for a
project. It seemed decent, so I took it off the
road and began the process of modifying it.
First thing was to pull all the XC body cladding off of it and prepare it for paint. The body
cladding on the XC models is a neat idea and
is the main contributor the bold look, however the cladding has been a bit of a sore spot
with XC owners too. As it ages, it discolors
and fades out, making the XC’s look much
older than they are. You can detail the plastic
cladding with products like spray on Stoner
Trim Shine or wipe on Black Again detailers
we sell, but they only last a few weeks before
the body trim is looking dull and dreary again.
My plan was to paint all the trim a nice
matte titanium metallic color that I had seen
on some Mercedes models. This turned
out to be way more expensive that I had
imagined as the textured XC body cladding all had to be sanded down smooth
and primer using a special plastic primer.
It came out looking fantastic in my opinion,
but cost almost $1600 in paint and labor.
Not a feasible solution in my opinion. PSThe body shop that sanded and painted
the body cladding said not to send them
any customers wanting the same modification done as they said they lost money on it!
I have seen some XC’s with painted cladding that wasn’t sanded down and it looks
OK on some colors, but I wouldn’t recommend it on black or other dark colors.
Next, to give my 2001 XC70 a newer appearance I wanted to upgrade the headlights
to the style Volvo used from 2005-2007. In
the process of searching for a good set of
used lights I ran across a photo of an optional Bi-Xenon/Projector headlamp that I hadn’t
seen before. They were really trick and modern looking and I decided to install a set.
That was a learning experience! I learned
that although it can be done, it’s not worth
the trouble and cost in my opinion. They look
great, but the performance increase is minimal. You also end up losing the headlamp
wipers and the amount of wiring modifications required are very significant. With our
resources, I was able to do the conversion for
about $1000, however I would estimate that
by the time you sourced a good set of used
headlamps, modified the wiring harnesses
and made the required mounting modifications, it would cost most folks close to $3000.
I also had the wheels, mirrors and grille color matched when we had the body cladding
painted and that all came out looking fresh.

VCOA Membership USA VCOA Membership Canada VCOA Membership International Tech Tip: Spark Plug Gapping
By: ipd staff
There are a number of plug
gapping tools available on the
market today and while most
spark plugs come pre-gapped
is a good idea to at least check
them before installation. From
manufacturer to consumer a
spark plugs trip is a long one,
and throughout its journey it is
subject to some abuse. Since
gapping is checked in the thousandths of an inch (i.e. 0.028)
a small impact makes a big
change. In addition, one spark
plug part number may fit multiple engine configurations to
which each may have a different gap. Checking gap is easy
enough but which type of tool
is the easiest and most useful?
We have found that the bucket
of gap tools on the counter of the
local parts house to be the worst
in general. These half dollar
shaped units are often inaccurate due to the inherent sloping
edge used to measure the gap
with. A better design is the graduated wire style. This gap tool has
multiple wire diameters that are
common gap specifications. By
using this tool you can be sure
that the gap across distance of
the plug electrode is consistent
whereas the style previously
mentioned has a certain inaccu-
racy because the sloping edge
only contacts the far edge of
the plug ground strap. Wire gap
tools also include a ground strap
adjustment wrench. This allows
minute adjustment without having to ‘smack’ the plug against
the concrete. Although these
tools typically sell for around $4$5, a far cry from the $0.25 units
at the parts house, it’s a far better value.
Volvo OEM Spark Plug Sets
ipd now offers Volvo OEM spark plug sets for your Volvo. Volvo plug kits offer premium quality at a reasonable price. Volvo uses NGK Iridium, Bosch Yttrium and Denso
multiple electrode copper plugs that are specifically engineered for each Volvo application. Volvo plugs are packaged as sets and come pre-gapped from the factory.

I have used these plugs in both of Volvo’s (‘98 S70 T5 and ‘04 V70 2.5T) with consistently great results. I have
read other’s reviews of other plugs giving them fits but never a hiccup with these. Just make sure to check the
plug gap...they aren’t always consistent out of the package.
Bosch Super Copper Core Plugs
Heavy-duty copper core center electrode delivers superior durability and reliability.
Nickel chromium ground electrode means consistent performance and prolonged service life. Nickel-plated rolled threads mean complete anti-seize and corrosion protection.
Metal glass-fused center electrode seal prevents combustion leakage. Angular, fiveribbed insulator design prevents misfire due to current leakage.

are a colder heat range and they are longer because of the thicker cylinder head casting on the R. This plug is
not for the 2007 S80 or V8 models.
Bosch Platinum Plugs
Only Bosch uses a pure platinum center electrode, heat-fused into an extended insulator which reaches self-cleaning temperature only seconds after starting. Electrode gap
remains virtually unchanged throughout the plug’s longer service life; no need to clean
or re-gap. Heavy-duty tapered ground electrode means extended service life, reduced
electrode temperature, and improved access to air/fuel mixture. Lower ignition voltage
requirement vs. other plug designs delivers reliable cold weather starts and superior
operation under all driving conditions. • 800-444-6473
Spark Plug Applications for FWD/AWD Volvos
Prior to 2004, there was basically one length plug that fit in all FWD/AWD models. In late 2004, Volvo introduced a different cylinder head that was thicker between then combustion champer and the spark plug seat. .
This difference means that these engines use different spark plugs and shorter ignition coil packs.
We believe this thicker head appears on all P1 (C30 / S40 2005- / V50 / C70 2005-) models and late S60/V70
T5 & R models. It also appears that the newer (2007-) 6 cylinder engine uses the longer style plugs. For more
details visit
Denso Iridium Spark Plugs
Denso Iridium plugs are serious power and performance for even the most serious
of performance minded customers. Pure Iridium has a melting point of almost 700ºC
higher than platinum and better withstands overheating, detonation, and oxidation
wear. Denso Iridium plugs are combined with Rhodium for superior heat resistance and
response. With high power and high heat turbo engines, you need all the help you can

Timing Belts and Kits
Timing belt maintenance has never been so important since the 5 cylinder ‘white’ engine
was introduced into the US in 1993. Unlike the ‘red’ engine of days gone past, these new
engines are interference so a broken timing belt means valve and piston damage, an
expensive alternative to belt replacement. Intervals for replacement vary from 70K to 105K
depending on model year. With our available cam locking tool, perfect alignment can be
ensured and no more potential for the camshaft to jump while the belt is off. This job used

maintenance is back in your control. Timing belt kits complete with tensioner, tensioner

Pollen Filters
Nearly all front wheel drive Volvo models are equipped with a cabin pollen filter which
eliminates pollutants and pollen that would normally enter the passenger compartment.
A plugged filter will not only reduce the comfort and protection you and your passengers
enjoy against airborne contaminants, but can also shorten the life of the heater blower
motor. When the filter becomes clogged, it significantly reduces the airflow through the
climate control system, and increases the amount of work load put on the blower motor.
For best protection, and to prolong the life of your heater blower motor, the filter should
be replaced every 15-20,000 miles and even more frequent in highly dusty areas.
Stock Replacement Air Filters
Easy to install and maintain — just discard and replace with a new one when needed.
Check air filter every 10,000 miles. Replace it every 30,000 miles or more often in dirty
or dusty conditions.

The ipd Air Management System (AMS) increases throttle response and provides
a more aggressive intake growl under acceleration. Improved breathing capacity and
lower intake air temperature results in greater horsepower and torque. A byproduct of
our free flowing design is an addictive sound under full throttle and throttle lift (turbo
woosh!!!) as the boosted air is redirected by the diverter valve.

There are two vacuum elbows used on 850 and later models that fit in a variety of
different places. Our kit includes the elbows that most commonly get soft and fail over
time. The elbow that is different sizes on each end is used primarily in two locations.
First, the nipple located on the pass side of the intake manifold behind the power steering pump & second on the intake tube right after the mass air flow sensor. The elbow on
the intake manifold is used on 850s that were built Oct 95 and later and the 70 series
up to 2000 (check your vehicle to be sure). The other elbow is found on the air injection
pump valve vacuum line and solenoid, four are used in that system, and also found on
vacuum tree under the throttle bell crank cover. Look for code “232 LT FT” caused by

Oil Filter Housing
Generally the cartridge housing does not require replacement, however if it becomes
cross threaded it can become difficult to install correctly which can lead to leaks. As the
engine heat cycles through use, the filter housing tightens up further, often leading to
very difficult removal wherein some cases the housing will become damaged or stripped
during removal.
Replacement Plastic Oil filter housing
fits all models that use 1275811 oil filter
* We believe 1999 Turbo models had the new cartridge style and 1999 non-turbo models still had the older
spin on style. All models 2000 and newer have the cartridge style filter.
Forgotten Tune Up Items
By: ipd staff
Tunes up items usually consist
of spark plugs, wires, cap and rotor. Newer cars have gone away
from caps and rotors and many
use a coil over plug system, now
spark plugs may be the only replaceable parts. As easy as this
has become there are still some
forgotten parts that need replacement every so often. Serpentine belts are a vital part of
your engines’ ability to run. With
a broken serpentine belt your
car will lose air conditioning, alternator, water pump, and power
steering. This will make the car
hard to maneuver quick to over-
heat, and drain the battery flat.
These belts break all at once
within a second or two and usually don’t give much warning. A
simple inspection should reveal
a belt with little to no cracks in
the ribbed surface. A few stray
cracks are considered acceptable but anything more than that
is indicative of belt wear. Considering how much effect a broken serpentine belt can have it
isn’t a bad idea to carry a spare.
However, once broken, the belt
can wrap itself around the crank
and drive pulley’s making it even
harder to remove so it’s best
to check the condition every oil
change and replace as needed.
Another item that is easily
overlooked is air conditioning
system. As summer winds down
many of us put air conditioning
repair on the bottom of our ‘to fix’
list. We don’t typically think of the
air conditioning system as being
used much during the fall and
winter months. Fact is, it is used
more often than you might think.
Defrost systems rely heavily on
the air conditioner to properly
and quickly clear the windshield
from condensation built up on
the inside. As the air condition-
ing system operates it has two
effects on the ambient air. Firstly,
and most noticeably, it cools the
air by exchanging the heat into
the evaporator. Secondly it dehumidifies the air. This second
characteristic is what removes
fog from the inside of the windshield. This cooler drier air can
absorb moisture built up inside
the vehicle and provide faster
clearing of the windshield. So if
your A/C didn’t work too well this
summer you can count on that
same level of performance from
your defrost. • 800-444-6473

Having the right tool makes all the difference and keeps the simple jobs simple. Starting in
1999 Volvo switched to a paper cartridge style oil filter that is encased in a plastic housing.
Commonly this housing gets damaged or stripped from use of a strap style or clamp style
wrench, making oil changes a hassle. We offer the right tool at a reasonable price that is
perfect for this job and will keep the job simple in the future.
The stamped steel tool is for the average do it yourselfer who’s doing an oil change four

Bosch Original Equipment Fuel Filters
Changing the fuel filter in front wheel drive Volvos is pretty easy due to the use of
quick disconnect style fittings. Simply slide the connector collar away from the filter
about half an inch and the line will disconnect. Volvo has added a schraeder type valve
(like a tire valve stem) that allows line pressure to be bled off to help reduce the amount
of fuel that is spilled.
Please see the engine section of for current
pricing and applications.
In-Line Magnetic Filters
for Automatic Tranny and Power Steering
Oil flows through your automatic transmission and power steering system to transmit
power, lubricate parts and provide cooling. Contaminants (like dirt, metal fragments and
fibers) result in the oil working like sandpaper. Instead of lubricating, the oil gradually
wears out the parts it’s supposed to protect. Under normal driving conditions, the oil can
be contaminated in just 25 hours of driving.
These filters stop ferrous metal via a magnet. The remaining metal and dirt is stopped
by the paper element.
Installing a Magnefine in-line filter will remove 99.997% of damaging contamination,
making the oil cleaner than when your vehicle first left the factory. And it will keep it that

Turbo Drain Pipe Seal Kit
Newer Turbo Volvos have a tendency to leave oil drips. In many cases, the oil drip is
coming from the turbo drain pipe seal (located near the center back side of the engine).
We put together this kit with instructions so that you can fix it yourself and in less than
an hour you can have it repaired. You’ll need a 5mm Allen wrench and 10mm socket.

Turbo Drain Seal Tool
Turbo drain seal leaks are an all too common problem. Make quick work of this job
with our universal 5mm allen socket. This tool accesses the two allen bolts on the upper
end of the drain pipe where space it limited. Oil leak repairs aren’t so bad with tools like
this. This tool is absolutely required to remove the tubo drain pipe seals on AWD models. For other models use torx 30 - see page 60.

Intermittent cranking without starting can be the most frustrating type of problem to
diagnose. The engine camshaft sensor can be common cause of this type of no start.
The camshaft sensor is referenced at startup by the ECU to determine which valves are
open/closed and compare that to piston position to fire the injectors and ignition coil at
the right time. Typically even intermittent camshaft positions sensor failure will result in a
code stored in the ECU so be sure to check the ECU for codes even if you don’t have a
check engine light on.
The camshaft sensor is located on the back of the exhaust cam and is held on with
Torx 40 fasteners.

Oxygen Sensors
for Efficient, Trouble-free Performance
Most often the fault given from the on board diagnostic system is a fault with the
oxygen sensor. It is important that the proper fuel mixture is maintained for optimum
fuel efficiency. Be sure there are no other faults before replacing just the oxygen sensor.
These are Bosch oxygen sensors for original equipment fit and function. Be sure to
check the part number on your car first.
Use our oxygen sensor tool for removal. It has a slot machined in it that allows it to be
slipped over the sensor wire for secure removal and installation even in tight spots like
on turbo models.
Check our website for complete listings of our oxygen sensors
Prices subject to change. See website for most accurate pricing.
Oxygen Sensor Wrench
Replacing the oxygen sensor on your Volvo can be a real pain. Since it is installed
directly in the headpipe or exhaust manifold, it will usually be severely rusted or corroded in place. The main sensor lead comes right out of the center of the sensor, so it’s
not possible to use a standard socket. Our “High Leverage” long handle oxygen sensor
wrench allows it to be slipped over the sensor wire for secure removal and installation
even in tight spots, especially when working on turbo models.

Got Oil Leaks? It Could Be Your Flame Trap System
Volvo’s refers to their positive crankcase ventilation (PCV) system as a ‘flame trap’. This system has been used on Volvo models as
far back as the early 70’s. Its purpose is to recycle or reburn the combustions gasses and unused fuel that leaks past the piston rings
and into the crankcase. The amount of vapors generated in a turbo engine are such that if the flame trap system is clogged it can actually push engine oil past seals on the crankshaft and cam shafts. The system is made up of few basic parts starting with an oil separator
that allows any suspended liquid to condense and drain back down to the oil pan. There are also a number of tubes connecting the oil
separator box to three passages in the engine block, and one tube running to the intake tract just before the turbo. This last tube is where
the positive pressure in the crankcase is sucked out of the engine by the turbo and keeps the internal engine pressure in a slight vacuum.
Infrequent oil changes, rich running engine, poor fuel/oil quality, and hard driving all contribute to carbon buildup which is the main cause
of oil separator box clogging.
Please see the PCV system under the Engine Mechanical section
of our website for your specific model.

through an inspection / emissions test, the fact that the “Check Engine Light” is off, does
not mean it will pass. The car has to be driven through several “Drive Cycles’ to ensure all
sensors and systems are functioning properly before he car will be in “Readiness Mode”
and pass an emissions test. On rare occasions the “Check Engine Light” may be set /
illuminated by a momentary blip in the engine management system and after resetting it
may not come back on.
The NT300 will tell you if the car is in “ readiness Mode” and will pass an emissions test,
the NT 200 will not. The NT300 has the generic code function as well as enhanced manufacturers specific code capability that can often be much more helpful when troubleshooting. The NT300 has an onboard manufacturers diagnostic code library that provides much
more detailed information about a a specific code.
For example:
P0130 - Oxygen Sensor Circuit Malfunction (Bank I Sensor 1) is a common generic code that you might run into
on your Volvo and is what the NT 200 would display if your Volvo was having an oxygen sensor related issue that
illuminated the “Check Engine Light”. The NT300 scan tool will display the Volvo manufacturers code, which will
be much more specific with information such as:
• Open or short in the Oxygen Sensor wiring harness
• Unmetered vacuum leak at the engine
• Bad Oxygen sensor
Here is a link to a helpful website that provides clear explanations of generic OBD-II codes as well as Symptoms,
Causes and Solutions for the code in question.

Magnetic Spark Plug Sockets
Our magnetic spark plug sockets are designed to make spark plug installation and removal easier by practically eliminating dropped spark plugs. The powerful magnet within
each socket holds plugs securely, plus the sockets are knurled for extra gripping power.
They’re even warrantied by the manufacturer for life! These magnetic plug sockets also
attract metal particles and keep them from entering the combustion chamber, which is
especially useful when working around ruty exhaust manifolds. Includes both 13/16” and
5/8” sockets to fit the common sizes for early and later model engines.

with our 360 degree flex head ratchet you can replace spark plugs in the deep recessed
opening at the top of the head without searching around in your box for the right tools.

the head and a high torque swivel head for breaking loose those corroded threads.

External Torx
If your 850 and later model vehicle has an ABS/Tracs light on and the module is the
culprit (diagnostic trouble codes123-124-213-214-313-314-323-324) you’ll need our
E5 external torx to remove the control unit. The four fasteners are accessed from the
bottom of the unit and require a bit of care to ensure no damage occurs. Better yet, get
our 11 piece external torx set, containing E4 through E20 and tackle those front wheel
bearing fasteners too!
Individual E5 external torx
11-piece external torx set
This set, made in the USA, is made of high strength hardened alloy steel for the professional mechanic (lifetime warranty) and includes 1/4” drive T-10,T15,T-20,T-25, T-27,
T-30 and 3/8” drive T-40, T-45, and T-50 bits. The dual drive sizes may seem unusual at
first, but after using them for awhile, it really makes good sense. The 1/4” drive on the
smaller bits allows them to be used in tight fit areas where a larger socket body and 3/8”
ratchet driver wouldn’t fit. The 3/8” drive on the larger bits insures you’ll be able to break
loose the larger sized fasteners that a 1/4” drive couldn’t handle.
Fuel line release tool
ipd’s fuel line release tool is now available for your
1999 and later model Volvo. Starting in 1999 Volvo
starting using a internal locking fuel line connection
which requires this special tool anytime it is disconnected. Since the fuel line is routed in between the
intake manifold runners and the engine block anytime
the fuel rail or even the intake manifold is removed
you’ll need this tool to allow that connection to come
apart. For PCV service it’s a must so make sure to
pick up our latest fuel system tool for your later model

Projector Headlights and Turn Signals
If you’ve ever considered upgrading the headlights on your S or V 70 to a custom style,
now is the time with our new projector lamp assemblies and included matching turn signal
assemblies for a super clean Euro look. Up until now we have chosen to stay out of the
custom headlight market as the offerings for Volvos did not meet our quality requirements.
The fit and finish of these lights is outstanding. The low beam projector lamp dramatically
improves the beam pattern and provide the custom look to set your ride apart from the
crowd. Both hi and low beam lamps utilize commonly available H-7 halogen bulbs (not
included , but you can re-use your originals).
Easy installation in under an hour with common hand tools.
