well just picked up my new wheels, its a lovely year 2000 2.0 Turbo with the basic volvo performance kit fitted by the dealers, the first time the dump valve went off caught me by surprise, but the car drives well despite the 150,000 on the clock, the rear suspension has been changed to adjustable bilsteins and I have got the set for the front (included but not fitted).
I'll try and get some pictures tomorrow when its daylight, to say the performance difference was noticeable over my 1.8 GDI v40 would be an understatement (as it happens on the way to pick up the new one the old v40 started clunking on right turns (I'm guessing drive shaft or cv joint)
