    The licence plates do you get from a Volvocar salesman.
    They usually get these for showrooms etc..
    you can surely order this from Volvo.

    Default How did you do it?

    Reddiz, how did you install all the components? My dealer wants to charge me over $2000 US just for the steering wheel, and told me the watchdial guages were not compatible and couldn't be done at all! Besides a lot of $$, do you have any secrets you can share? Thanks.

    I think the biggest secret would be how to get all these mods past the little woman ('er indoors)

    Female VolvoXC members - do you have any tips?

    Great car Reddiz, I think what you have done is amazing. I was today at my dealer looking at a rear skid plate and side moldings for my 2004 XC to update it a bit to. Have you ever seen a car just with these upgrades. I am not sure if your car had the side moldings or not please do tell.

    Thanks

    Mirrors from MY2007.. cromed?
    Stereo and climatecontrol modified to run with 05- console.





    some creating is going on here...
    Here is some pics...














    Some answer to your questions.
    How do i do these uppgrades?..The secret is closer than you think, "nothing is impossible!!"
    It is just up to you how far you will go..I choosed to go all the way, you wont get an ticket back when you decided to start.

    Much less than the cost of an ordinary XC70, so not only is it a very special vehicle, but cost effective too!

    Every time Volvo says here's the NEW XC70 I shall stop and reflect that there's not a whole lot new under the sun...

    All gone now - XC70 MY 13 SE LUX Flamenco red - goes better than the '09 even with its "Polestar plus" upgrade. I justy miss the PCC...


    Hers: V60 Flamenco Red 215HP D5 (like above XC70 spec)

    Default MY07 chrome mirrors

    Hi Reddiz,

    How did you manage to get MY07 chrome mirrors? They look awesome! Can they still be electrically folded? Did you disable the original side indicators?
