Hi everybody!

Not gonna bother making an owners diary, cause this is literally the only things I am going to do to this car :lol:
This is my Volvo v60 daily drivers. It really is a seriously awesome car. I love it to bits!

2.0L diesel 5cylinder
165bhp
400nm of torque
R design (stiffer shocks and springs, bigger brakes, sports seats)

So as a treat to myself i got myself some Eibach sportline lowering springs :)





Front springs had a much bigger circumference which was a bit scary



But they fitted fine, missed the body and the tyre so all gravey baby!





Perfect amount of drop IMO! The back is still slightly up, but then its an estate, it has to be!

Next up, got myself to AMD tuning for a cheeky little remap. Nothing to major just a few extra ponies, some extra torque and some MPG!
I choose AMD cause their a big name so you know the map will be good, safe aswell.





167bhp to 190bhp
407nm to 470nm

Can really feel the advance in the timing, it is a lot stronger when cruising, needs hardly any throttle to maintain a speed now and it has BAGS of torque lol.
Got some wheel spacers on the way, ill get some nice photos when they are on then thats it all done, the perfect daily!
