  1. Yes, Vida/Dice is the way to go but be careful on youtube. I bought my first one from ebay for less than $100. The disk had a virus so it ended up being a wasted $100. I bought the one that I successfully use now from http://www.buyobdtoolshop.com/wholesale/volvo-vida-dice-diagnostic-tool-2011-d-version.html and they also have youtube videos on how to install and do the SUM calibration. You can also one of the recommended vendors discussed on Swedespeed (http://forums.swedespeed,com/forumdisplay.php?51-R-Forum-(2004-2007)). Good luck, GLM
  2. There are multiple threads on Swedespeed documenting on how to do this. Here is an example. http://forums.swedespeed,com/showthread.php?131979-Goodbye-spaceball-welcome-leather-boot&highlight=boot
  3. I don't have much to add, but there isn't a lot of activity on this forum and you might be better off posting on Swedespeed. http://forums.swedespeed,com/forumdisplay.php?51-R-Forum-(2004-2007) GLM
  4. I have the IPD downpipe and installation was easy (once I got the old one off!). I bought the Mototec Eurosport Turning Sport catback system first (it was on sale) to get rid of the squeal and to replace the original exhaust. The sound is very aggressive, but the kids and wife don't mind so I'm sticking with it. I scored the IPD downpipe when it went on sale. GLM
  5. That's a great deal from Volvo. www.rockauto.com lists Monroe equivalents at 220.79 plus shipping from Europe which puts them at about the same price as your Volvo find. That's the least I've seen, so I don't think you will find a better price.
