Buff those headlights, it will drive you nuts otherwise. Don't sweat the fancy plastic restoring stuff, just grab some polishing compound, some cleaner wax and a buffer.

Should fit it physically, the V8 has the same transmission as the 06-07 R's... use shifter/clutch set up from a euro S80... it could be done in theory at least.

That's the plan, they're essentially the only blemish on the vehicle I've found. I'll definitely be polishing them out soon as the whole body needs it anyways. After that I may consider upgrading to the newer style with xenons and projectors.

The car passes the 10ft test no problem, but needs a good day at the spa. Looks like it was just daily driven and washed regularly. Some good polish and wax and it should be looking new from all angles.

All I know is that during a training session at Volvo HQ, my friend tried to mate them up and it didn't work because they had different bolt patterns at the transmission.

brushed aluminum mirror caps and an exhaust would be my first mods - aside from the obvious 3M service to the headlights. Oh and pegs, R bumper and HIDs

Nope, I picked this one up in CT just north of Westport. Started it's life in Westport, then to Wilton, then to Danbury, all in CT. She just rolled over 61k miles.
