Haha thanks Matt, and yeah the muffler has gotten some mixed responses. It's a 3" Vibrant TPV. Sounds great in person. One thing I would like to change is how it sits. I don't mind how it is now but ideally, I'd like it to be a bit more parallel with the car. I find it points a little bit downwards at the moment. No biggie though, imo.

Here's an up close shot:

and this is another shot, back when the wagon was still on Kilen springs:

Still waiting for my replacement IPD VMS wheel to arrive via UPS so running the winter setup with 75'F weather. Yesterday I painted the mirror covers and wrapped the B pillars in semi gloss black. What do you guys think?

I like the b-pillars but I'm on the fence of the mirrors

Could/should be lower but I need it higher in the spring and summer since I usually have adults riding in the back.

Whenever I get around to it. I'd rather weld a piece of metal and repaint the doors, I like smooth doors. I just can't seem to find white doors.

You've lost me. Is you plan to pull off the trim and weld the doors and fenders such that there is no trim - i.e. shave them? Wouldn't you need to replace your bumpers then in order to make the whole side flow properly?

That's the idea, yes. Make the trim disappear all together.

As for the bumpers: not sure yet. The obvious next step would be a V70 front end but for some reason I can never bring myself to that point. The rear bumper is from an XC70 and could receive the same treatment Hussein gave his.

Not sure, either way nothing will happen anytime soon. I still need to finish the R5.

Video quality isn't the greatest but this should be an okay sample. It drones pretty bad at around the mid-2000rpms. Going to do a 3" DP and cat to 2.5" catback w/EST resonator to the Vibrant TPV I have now. Hoping the drone would be reduced with the resonator.

Love those TDRs.
