Gainzy's trusty Volvo

Recommended Posts

Soooo I upgraded from my silver sportif for something a lot more updated, safe and spacious. It's the V50 Rspec 2.0 diesel with alot of extra's in all the right place's. It's such a nice car to be in I really like it!

Little bit spec:-

HID's

Super chipped

18inch alloys Toyo tyres

Window tints all round

6 speed box

Optional spoiler, skirts, front lip, rear bumper

Half leather

Tow bar with electric connections

Cargo net and boot cover

Wind deflectors

I bagged it for a local bargain I looked everywhere. I really wanted a T5 but I couldn't justify the tax and mpg. The actual thing that surprised me is the sound system it has like a centre optional dash speaker it's absolute class!

Volvo have just been a company that always stands out to me. As well as Saab. Correct me if I am wrong, but aren't Volvos super reliable?

I actually need to take a lot more I have not long had it I will hoy some more when I get a chance. I honestly can't fault it, I looked into Saab heard good things aswell as the diesel accords 2.2's and almost bought a quattro A4 after a test drive. They say the volvo is one of the best cars on the road...there's the new V70, I have seen a black one kicking around they look super slick. I don't want to go too far with this but if something was to brake it's getting the best upgrade ha

Good solid daily that mile muncher.

Pick em up for cheap aswell. Get alot of car for the price's! I really liked the Forrester but they do a fair 7k for a decent one. It's not buying it, it's running them. The mpg on these is really good for a big car.

Optional cargo net was a good find, saved £40. That's pretty much all I'm going for optional wise. I have a tow ball fitted on the back. If I get can get a hold of a trailer I'll be able to tow the V around lmao.

Only just spotting this now like a tit - apologies.

Liking this alot! My brother had a V50 a few years back, and he and I both now have V60s. He has converted me to the Swedespeed way of life!

His is the big 5 cylinder D5, mine is a 2016 D4 R Design and I have to say, I'm bsolutely obsessedwith it! Fantastic cars, I can see me sticking with Volvos for a while! ANd of course, plenty of optional hunting being done here too lol!

Keep up the great work on this one bud and keep us posted!

Phil.
