  1. Are you nuts? First it won't work Next the 4C generally sucks after a few miles and ESPECIALLY out of a 2004 which is 1/2 the speed of the 05-07s and you have nothing to run it Install coilovers which would cost less in the long run and work better
  2. Don't buy new. I bought the entire set up used from www.erievovo.com, the 4 sensors with their harness, the controller that installs near the REM and the dash switch for $150 I haven't installed them yet as drilling out the bumper will take some time but the instructions, all 19 pages of them from VIDA are on line (or email me and I will sned them to you). You will need software from your dealer to activate the system but this is the factory set up that plays through your radio
  3. You are going to spend a fortune on parts even if you can do a lot of the work yourself. I would pass
  4. Year of your R? I think you're in the wrong forum
  5. There are no factory Volvo parts cheaper than Tasca parts, hence no coupons. All Tasca parts are sold 10% over dealer cost
  6. Volvo parts are guaranteed for 2 years, 24K miles now Where did you buy it?
  7. You are in the wrong website This is called www.V70R.com not XC90.com!!!!! And this is NOT the same engine. V70Rs use a 2.5 5 cylinder only
  8. <p>First of all, seat heat is an <strong>ADJUSTMENT ONLY, there is <u>no software involved</u></strong><u> </u>so if they sold you software, that's iilegal because there isn't any TO sell!</p> <p>As for the West coast BS, that's all that is... BS.</p> <p>What if you lived in the mountains where it snows and gets below freezing?</p> <p>No such an animal as a "West Coast setting" For whatever reason they're lying to you and for why, what do they have to gain, nothing.</p> <p> </p> <p>If they insist on charging you for the VIDA adjustment, so be it, they can do that, it's 1 hour, MAX (for 15 minutes work).</p> <p>You don't ask for a temperature, there are three seat heat settings, cooler, average and HOT or low, medium and hot, they usually come from the factory in the middle setting but it's possible that they're in the coolest setting.</p> <p> </p> <p>If you bring the car in for a small (or medium) service, Volvo is supposed to download all the latest software <span style="font-size:18px;"><strong>for free</strong></span>. It' s a program called <strong><u><em>"software for life"</em></u>,</strong> you may want to remind them of this.</p> <p> </p> <p><u>If they play dumb, call Volvo corporate and complain</u></p> <p> </p> <p>Where do these dealers come up with all this s*it?</p> Mike. your site went all bizarre!
  9. Doubtful you need a valve cover gasket but the larger question is Why are you here (at this site)? This is called V70R.com, a specific Volvo model website. Not XC90.com I suggest: swedespeed.com, XC70.com or matthewsvolvosite.com
  10. Those wheels, the HORROR!
  11. 130K now http://s732.photobucket.com/user/JRL1194/media/2000V70RBLACKNEWRIGHTFRONTMAR2013.jpg.html'>
  12. It would be a hell of a lot easier for everyone if you posted the MODEL YEAR of the R 2006s had some bad valvebodies, so if yours is a 2006, he was probably right
  13. Not bad at all!
  14. You need a new mechanic
  15. Buy new Ohlins, huh? Please tell us where
