like every winter, there are lots of changes going on at
Volvospeed. In fact there will
be a major announcement about the site coming in the next week. Also
updates on Carlisle 2012 and much more. Before we get into all the
latest buzz, lets take a moment to see what is going on with our
Vendors style="font-size: 11pt;" size="2">.

style="font-size: 11pt;" size="2">Kalmar
Union has been established for 15 years in the UK specialising in the
sourcing and supply of well researched, well designed and effective
components for those looking to modify their later model Volvos.
Those items include KU lightened, single mass steel flywheels and
plate type limited slip diffs for both M56 and M66 gearboxes, a newly
developed remote oil cooler kit, a range of Swedish made Ferrita
stainless sports exhausts and MTE software upgrades. Prices given on
a web site shop include UK VAT at 20% which we do not charge for
deliveries outside the EU, so you do need to order by a separate
email if you are in North America or elsewhere for us to quote the
net price without VAT and a shipping cost: we also require payment
into our Bank account outside of the UK.We have
been racing an S60 T5 in the UK’s Britcar long distance
championship for some years now with many class wins, we have used
this activity to refine many of our products.
style="font-size: 11pt;" size="2">After
what is going on two decades it is still great to see names and faces
I know on the site. Both Don(Kalmar) and Scott(FCP) are fixtures of
the sites and known by everyone who frequents the sites. FCP has
sponsored everything from new start up sites like href="http://xcforums.com/">XC
Forums all the way up to shows such as Carlisle. Speaking of
Carlisle registration is now open for 2012 at
This year like in years past we plan to have raffles as well as a few
additional surprises. If you would like to plan something additional
please contact Volvospeed and let us know what you have in mind.
style="font-size: 11pt;" size="2">If
you have posted at all in the last few months than you have noticed
the options to use "tags" in topics where you used to enter
the sub-title. These tags are helping us organize topics as well as
speed up searching. Even though the site now supports three letter
searches, there are still times where you may want to search for
similar topics. This is where tags come in handy. At the very least
you should use them when asking for help within a repair forum.
Tagging a post with the model and year your car is will assist in
people giving you an accurate and rapid answer. For example if your
1995 T5R has an issue with the egr valve, you would tag your post as:
t5r, 1995, egr. Doing this not only helps us answer you, but also
helps future members searching for answers.
style="font-size: 11pt;" size="2">For
those of you who have been asking, lifetime supporting memberships
will be going on sale shortly. If you are in a hurry, you can PM an
administrator and we will honor the discounted 20% off price now.
Please only do this if you do not already have a supporting
membership, or if yours runs out before the sale starts.
style="font-size: 11pt;" size="2">While
we have a good deal of upcoming news, we are trying to send out these
emails only a few times a year. So please cheak for updates in the
news forum or on href="https://plus.google.com/u/0/b/105540618952788527986">google+.
