  1. I have the same 316mm setup on mine. I've been researching a lot about upgrading to the Brembos from the R or the 336mm, but I think that I'll stick with the 316mm setup. I want to keep the Orestes without spacers. I'll get new Volvo rotors (apparently are quite good) and Carbotech XP12 pads (front and rear).
  2. My car has the 316mm rotors. I thought that only the police cars have the 320mm rotors. Are the calipers different between these two?
  3. I have 316mm rotors. Do you know if I can use 320mm rotors with the current calipers? I can simply upgrade the rotors and put some carbotech pads on....
  4. Thanks. Even with spacers? Basically, it's the last stuff that needs to be done on my car so that I consider it done, but I would like to keep the 17" Orestes.
  5. Does the R Brembo calipers fit on the Orestes? Looking into buying a set of 4 Brembo calipers. Thanks
  6. I replaced my front shocks with new Sachs shocks (same spec as factory). Kept the rear Nivomats. Did the front and rear IPD ARBs, IPD drop links,, poly wishbones, IPD inserts and front and rear strut bars. Love it
  7. I have a MTE file and it's a great tune. But now I've added more hardware and in order to take full advantage out of it, I need a custom tune and Gustav will be tuning my car. You need a computer for a Hilton or Gustva tune also....
  8. I'm very happy with my MTE tune.
  9. you bet!
  10. Hi, I've been trying to find online without success a 2005 V70R rear bumper for my T5. I'm basically only looking to fit the lower valance of the R bumper, so that I can fit the dual exhaust tips like the R's. Cheers
  11. OK. My bad Good price. The chrome trims alone are worth that price
  12. How is the exaust part of the bumper? I remember yours was not stock.
  13. I've also noticed a more planted turn on my V70 after fitting the vst rear strut brace.
  14. I've watched this video a couple of times. Never been at the ring. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HDCqOZ1upoo
  15. I would like to join you guys, but have to wait for the dates to be able to confirm
