R Modified

Sign in to follow this  


Picked up the R from the dealer today.

Car received 2 modifications.

One mod to prevent the famous sidestep issue where the rear of the car can make a strange sideways movement when driving over road irregulariities.

Tested the car on the way home on a not so nice piece of road. Car went smooth all the way up to 137 mph.

The second modification is an attempt from Volvo to fix the front brake noise. My car started making a lot of noise during light to mild braking during the summer. During the winter time the noise was less. Volvo release a kit with some sort of strengthening bar which needs to be mounted against the front calipers.

Wait and see how it goes when temps go up.
