2008 Volvo S40.. On air!

Hi guys

Decided to move the BMW on & try something different... I've had LOTS of cars in the past but this is my first Volvo!

It's a late 2008 S40 2.0D Sport, 129k on the clock.

I'm not certain but I've been told it's the only S40 on air in the UK, I'm not sure.

It's on D2 Racing struts and Airlift 3P management. 18" BBS SR wheels.

It does have a few problems which I'm looking to address in the new year:

Sump has a hairline crack
Drivers side skirt needs replacing (Sourced one in the right colour)
Cold start issue (Have tried cleaning the TB, will investigate further)

Anyway, I hope you like! [Since the pics I have removed all the silly stickers that were on it!] and have fitted my private plate along with a Parrot MKi9200.

The front bumper looks a different colour in photos but it's the HDR on my iPhone 7, I panicked when I saw the pics but went & checked. It's definitely just the camera!

SB - the air suspension actually allows him to raise and lower the height of the car as he needs - it's very cool to watch. Saw a 4 series doing it the other day in Enniskillen - reminded me of the 80s American bouncing cars lol.

Cheers guys!

So yeah as stated its on air so I can park it so it's touching the floor, then via either a remote in the car or an app on my iPhone I can raise it to what ever height I want. There are 4 preset heights saved & I can also adjust the psi in each air bag individually. Absolutely pointless and costs the earth (£3k plus!) however it was already fitted and it's certainly a novelty!
