Mickos: V40 T3 Summum

Showing of the ride

On the first day of owning it:

&

It's a T3 Summum, started life on October 30th 2012, rolled of the line on November 9th. I'm the second user. Engine is a B4164T3 with Ecodrive. Good for 150 Hp. Biarritz Blue with 17" Mannan wheels. Interior is off black with blond seats and two tone doorpanels. Center console has a shimmer graphite aluminium finish.

Car is well equipped:
- Adaptive Bi-Xenon headlights
- Blind Spot Information System
- Rear parking sensors plus camera
- High performance audio
- Nav system with TMC
- 12V plug in the trunk
- Keyless start

Due to the Dutch V40 forum, the car will be modified, I like to change some stuff on it.

Already bought some 18" Midirs.

And other mods will include:
- R-Design diffusor
- Roofspoiler with aerofins
- Engine badge
- LED lights were not yet installed, like the doors and mirrors
- Changing of DRL settings

and many more

The previous V40 which I had for nearly 4 years.

A warm welcome both to the forum & V40 ownership Mickos
Couldn't really ask for more from a intro post tbh...
A bit of car history, current car with pics & an idea of your future intentions with the car! Good Stuff

I can only hope you enjoy the V40 as much as your previous Volvo's...
It is a great car!

Don't forget the most important part of owning a V40...
Enjoy

Hi Mickos, hope you enjoy your new car. Do you have any suggestions for buying wheels (new or used) for the V40 in The Netherlands?

Dont know much places to buy wheels, usually I look at the dutch site Marktplaats.nl, there you can find a lot of used and new ones, and with the new ones you mostly get redirected to the seller site so you have more options. Vstore.nl and Involvo.nl have the OEM wheels for sale, Volvovelgen.com also has a small selection. But imitations, well haven't look on many site for them, only hunterbanden.nl for Kiruna Bor wheels. The Midirs I bought are second hand, not scratch free but were really cheap and still properly balanced.

Update:

One of the wishes was to spice up the exterior of the car. First step, adding a R-Deisgn Diffusor.


Got one cheap but I needed to buy the endpipes from the dealer. Took me only half a hour to swap everything.

Time for some updated photos. Made some photos of the last day with the Midirs with winter tyres. Next winter the Mannans will get winter rubber on them and the Midirs will be fixed and become the summer set. Added some stickers and the T3 Badge on the back. A small but not noticable change it updating the Light settings on the car, now woth DRLs on the taillights are also on.
