    You cannot mix the G-05 and the green stuff you have now. I think I would stick with what you have, otherwise you will have to thoroughly flush the system first, before switching to G-05 or Volvo OEM...

    +1 to this!
    Bumper cover really is a 10 minute job! The only way, in my opinion, to do anything with the headlamps.

    If you own this car, you will need a VIDA/DICE anyway, sooner or later. May as well just go that route, and have everything you need.
