2018 Volvo V90

Was there any unusual circumstances around how you acquired your car?
Was looking for a cool dad car to cart my 2 year old son and all his gear around. Always wanted a wagon and as soon as I saw this car I had to have it. I lover the fact that it wasn’t a commonly seen car in the states at the time and the e fast that it was a RDesign that made it even more rare here was definitely a plus! It was supposed to stay stock…. Buuuut, that didn’t quite work out!

Would you consider your car done in its current form? Or do you have a list of “to dos” still left?
Cars definitely not done! Big brakes are coming soon. Some minor performance tweaks and Audio upgrades also will follow shortly after.

2018 Volvo V90 With Rims What is the biggest problem you ran into on your build?
The suspension was the biggest hurdle. Had a hard time getting it to the static height I wanted, so with a ton of searching and talking to people we decided to bag the car and solve all the issues we were running into height wise. Sadistic Ironwerks handled the fabrication and install and all had been great so far!2018 Volvo V90 If you had to do it again, would you build the same car?
Most definitely would do it again, Love this car!!2018 Volvo V90 On Air Suspension Are you apart of a club or crew with your car?

What’s the best memory you had in your car?
Sema 2019 was an amazing experience. Loved the response the car received, was invited and participated in the Optima Ultimate Street Car Challenge auto cross with the car after the show. Tons of photo ops…. And the road trip to and from the show was great!!
