Hi,

I'm John, just bought my first Volvo yesterday, a 51 plate S80 2.4l 20v petrol manual and love it to bits already! Just on here to see if I can find anyone local to Birmingham (UK) who can point me in the right direction for reccomendations on where to go for quality and trustworthy maintenance and possible modifications to the car?

My last car was a Saab 95 2.3 turbo petrol and was definitely nippier than the S80. I'm looking to improve take off and acceleration in lower ranges and want to weigh up the options. I'm not a boy racer but I do like to able to move when necessary. I love the stately look and feel of the car which I don't want to alter at all, so I'm not going to put on any fat chrome exhausts, huge spoilers or go faster stripes!

Also, as its a 51 plate I'd like to upgrade the electrics inside to include stuff like Bluetooth/MP3 connectivity and reverse parking sensors but without butchering the immaculate interior, or the bumper.

I'd be really grateful for any advice on the above, and am thankful you've read this far. Hope to hear from you soon.

Cheers (IMG:style_emoticons/default/thumbsup.gif)
