Hi guys

My first go at a Volvo. Played with BMW's for the past 10 years. Introducing Polestar number 003. I had number 035 as well but some uninsured Korean lady hit me head on and wrote the thing off. More on that later...!!

I put on the Heico Brakes and had rear discs manufactured in the US of A as Heico do not make them. Heico suspension, Heico Steering Wheel, Heico Short Throw Shifter, Heico Air Filter, Heico Illuminated Side Steps. Comes stock with the Heico Diamond Cut 19 inch Rims and Quad Exhaust. Vinyl Wrapped the Roof, Wing Mirrors, Rear Support Pillar, front Grill, Interior and a heap of Polestar Stickers to Rims, Boot Lid, Wing Mirrors, and Rear Doors. Also has the Rear Seat Entertainment package installed to occupy the little ones.

Getting the rear Callipers sprayed soon to match the Heico Blue colour and time to start tweaking this thing.

It's a start. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/grin.gif)

Now, for anyone wishing to purchase a Polestar beware of what happened to number 035. It was written off with a repair value being in excess of $60k. Some bloke in Western Australia bought it for $15k at a salvage sale....!!!! (Bargain of the century). He then purchased another S60 that had been written of for $4k and is blending the two together as we speak. I was hit head on doing about 65 kms per hour. The car spun around twice and every airbag went off. You've been warned.;

There seems to be quite a bit of re burthing going on with vehicles being shipped from all over to try and cover up there history.
Our neioghbours parents almost purchased a commadore that had been re burthed in WA
