Hot damn son! That'* one badass car! I wish mine looked half as good as that. Definitely got to be one of the best looking 87-91s I have seen.

Thank you very much, quite happy with the rims myself :P

Gave the car a clean and modern look, without beeing to much!

The car itself is in really good shape, barely any rust at all, no problems what so ever... bought her in februari for around 1300 USD,electrical problems in the chairs and a broken alternator, costed me roughly 110 USD to fix.

Yeah, the "volvobrick" is quite nice, really fast too, around 270 BHP

Got any more tips to make the car a bit nicer?
Been thinking about a new exhaust system of some sporty kind, just to make it sound nicer...

Honestly, appearance wise.. I don't see anything you could really do. Lowering it would be cool, but then the car would sit a little too low, IMO. The SSE trim would bottom out too often, and that isn't cool.

As far as the exhaust goes, hell yeah, I would! Flowmaster 80 series with a Magnaflow High-Flow Catalytic Converter. She'll sound awesome, guaranteed! A Cold Air Intake [CAI] will do wonders too. There are many 'basic' mods you can do, to wake that beast up.

naw, my brother is just into the 740 turbos.


I'd roll in one myself. My family used to have an '81 264 (GLE) back in the day.

Ahh, the 264:* are nice, really nice engine!

740 Turbos is good, nice cars. Really easy to get them to go really fast. How much do they cost where you live?
