          Here's the exhaust setup for those who are interested. 3 inch custom made cat back system..... Originally had one resonator and as epic as it was I couldn't drive 10 minutes without starting to get a headache so opted for a 2nd resonator which maintained 80% of the noise but lost a fair amount of the pops and crackles which was a pity but its now bearable inside at 3k rpm.

                  I get the same with my Mondeo ST220. Most people assume it's a boggo mondeo or at best a tdci

                  Goes under the radar until a real enthusiast notices it

                      Brilliant I have a black one and it is by far the best car I have ever owned. I was toying with the idea of an exhaust and some tuning bits.

                        Very cool, such a good colour as well, not used to seeing a volvo estate not covered in shite with 7 kids wedged into it!

                            I would definitely recommend the exhaust and the chipped ecu absolutely transformed the car. Some lads have gone down the route of bigger turbos etc, cant see myself messing with it too much now its plenty quick but the I would def look into the exhaust.
