Was there any unusual circumstances around how you acquired your car?
There went any real unusual events, but I wasn’t looking for a new car when I bought this one, I just had some requirement and this one had it all and some extras, so I just had to buy it.

Volvo V70 Front End

Was there more work on your car than you anticipated? Did you find a bucket of wiring worms, find some secret hidden problems…..
Not really anything I wasn’t ready for, I knew the common faults on these models so I already knew what I had to do.

Volvo V70 With Rims

Are there any unique mods on your car? Hyper-rare parts, custom made parts…
Nothing really Super-rare or extra but most of the stuff on the inside is Volvo Original extra parts, like the red leather seats and lit up gearknob and cupholder. Cant forget the V60 Rdesign steering wheel either.

Volvo V70 Rear End

Would you consider your car done in its current form? Or do you have a list of “to dos” still left?
A car is never “done” in my opinion, I am still waiting for my new rims, and I have a huge list that I’m slowly working on, fender flares, rims, starlight roof, more camber, the list is long haha.

What is the biggest problem you ran into on your build?
The biggest problem that I have ran into is probably finding chassis parts for this model, not that many that do camber adjustment stuff or just any upgrade parts for the suspension.

Modded Volvo V70

If you had to do it again, would you build the same car?
I would probably never build the same model, but the dream is to build the new V60 from 2019 and up, those are absolutely gorgeous.

Volvo V70 Engine bay

Are you apart of a club or crew with your car?
I’m not apart of any club or crew at the moment, I was before but got tired of people always saying what they would do to the car instead, so imp just doing my own thing now and just collecting inspiration from different builds all over the world.

Lowered Volvo V70

Is there any part/mod on your car you had to do a few times, or installed and then removed?
Always redoing my suspension setup, stiffer, softer, more angles and so on, other than that, probably the underglow haha.

Volvo V70 Front End

The Import Sauce Podcast

What is your favorite part on your car?
My favorite part is probably the front end or just the overall fitment, because imp riding static I cant go much lower then that.

Volvo V70 Interior

What’s the best memory you had in your car?
Probably not just one, but all of the nights me and my friends have been spending in the workshop just fixing our cars, modding them together and just helping out, those are the best.
