    Default Gifts for the ultimate Volvo nut

    I am looking to get some holiday gifts for an xc70 nut. The person in question has a 2003 xc70 that's entirely stock. What affordable upgrades can you suggest that you find improve the vehicle the most?
    It's used primarily for cross country and backcountry trips but also a daily driver.

    Thoughts?
    Thanks!

    What I'd like to see under the tree are some nice summer floor mats or a plastic cargo tray.

    What's your holiday budget? Are you looking more for performance or styling?

    It would be nice to spend under or around $100, but something up to $300 is reasonable if it's a good thing. Either performance or styling. I really don't know what is available for these! I've done some research and haven't found any places that sell aftermarket accessories specifically to the XC70s. Is there by chance a company that specializes in XC70s and sells a bunch of stuff?

    Does anyone have experience with this GROM Audio adaptor?

    It looks like a pretty sweet package, but how's the audio quality when talking on the phone? Can people hear you pretty well?

    Any other ideas?

    $100-$300 is kind of limited, but is also a reasonable amount for a gift. If you can't find anyting within your range for performance, then maybe a good set of high temprature colour headlamp such as PIAA if there are halogen.
