Kistiguns V40 D4 Business R-Design

Hi all,

My name is Tim, I'm 33 years old and since yesterday a proud owner of a V40 D4 Business R-Design in Osmium grey! It has the Business connect pack, Winter line pack and 18" Ixion II alloys.



Future plans:
- Switch mirror covers for black or carbon ones
- Fitting a K&N replacement filter
- Fitting OEM dimming rear side mirror
- Fitting OEM reverse camera
- Rica chip tuning to 257 HP / 507 NM
- Lowering?
raytint, LateStarter and BigBird like this.

Hello from Australia Kistigun... A warm welcome to the the forum & the V40! Great choice
Thanks for the pic of your lovely D4R! Very nice indeed
I'll follow your planned future additions with interest though trying to fit those OEM parts after delivery may prove "challenging" in the Volvo world!
Do Rica really claim 507nm for their D4 chip? That seems an awful lot through only the front wheels!
You may find your traction control light becomes a bit of a strobe light but I wish you well!
Enjoy

Thanks!

About retrofitting OEM parts, I'm planning to buy a Vida Dice ODB connector and try to add the parts in the software myself.

Goodluck with this (upgrading OEM hardware). There is a write-up by @Buzby on here about why this might be a challenge. Love that colour for the V40 though. I really wish RICA was available in other markets though, we only get PoleStar for almost the same price as the RICA tune

Congrats on the car and many motoring memories to come

yeah was reading something about the retrofitting oem parts and i think it's not going to work for the dimming mirror. Currently looking in to buin a reverse cam from volvotech. It looks a lot like OEM.

Also found this page: http://en.bsr.se/ it offers the same tuning gains as RICA tuning

http://en.bsr.se/tuning-kits/t/3167/...-2017-d4204t14

and it's a lot cheaper!

Car looks great mate! I must agree that the new mirrors do add something extra to the car.

Also your car is looking very clean, I'm currently waiting for a load of detailing products to arrive, so mine is filthy at the moment

All the best

James

Thanks! Recieved a new goody yesterday: a BSR performance air filter. After installing it and a test drive I've noticed a slight change in throttle response, I'm also hoping I will notice it in mileage

Do K&N provide an aftermarket air filter?
