You drive a Volvo? That I didn't expect...
Why not?

It's a 1997 T5-R with a 310BHP Rica Re-Map, 430N/M torque, sitting on 18"s, has uprated coilovers, T28 Turbo upgrade, Forged Pistons, S/S Custom Exhaust with De-Cat, HKS Induction Kit, Cold Plugs yadda yadda.......

I love it to bits, it is my baby and she's so cute in the snow...

I had my first Volvo when I was 22, I love those particular models, they are real wolves in sheeps clothing.

Roar power from the 20v Turbo lump, that's why the coppers use them
