D5 geartronic. I have the aux input. Wish mine had leather.
I have new rims on mine now. Also added a rhino lip splitter on the front bumper. Made a massive improvement on the look of the front end.
I am now a volvo fan. Would love a v60 as my next volvo

wheelie happy

these are how the wheels were





After a days stay at a refurbishment company






to say i am impressed would be an understatment, £45 a corner which included wheels off, tyres off, acid dip, bead blasting,defect rectification the powder coating of primer/colour then clearcoat, re fitting the tyres, rebalancing and fitting to the car and all done in 1 day,,

are we allowed to say who did the refurb and where they are, ? , dont want to if its against the rules

Lights

These are "next" on the list that doesnt seem to be getting much smaller,,,

Drivers side door mirror repeater, its a Bit more yellow than the photo shows,





Drivers side headlight, not The worse i have seen but in need of TLC as is the fog lights



the left being Much worse than the right,



left side headlight, "tlc needed"


passenger door mirror repeater, it honesty is that yellow ,
i forsee blue masking tape and a headlight restoration kit for the weekend, IF the rain holds off



C5 is planned to be added to the wheels, as soon as funds allow, but for now they can collect brake dust :P till the next wash, (sunday) and will not be that long before the C5 gets bought/applied,

On my cousins 55 plate Honda, I just used some compound and a green hex logic pad. No wetsanding, just finished with BH-DSW.

Cracking thread so far. Wheels look mint, at a very decent price as well.
