First day after i bought it.
5% tint over the rear OEM tinted windows
5% tint on the front two windows
5% 9" front windshield tint band
One of the first repairs were a ripped driver seat cushion, home made mod. so results were ok, no way am i a pro!
Next up was getting rid of those NASTY fogged headlamps with new aftermarket OEM replacements. while i was at it, ehh threw some H7 6000k HID Low beams, yellow h7 high beams and modified the fog light housings to do H1 6000k Hidz
Next was a remote start/alarm system. Who the hell wants to steal a XC90? NO ONE, but they would love to break into it and steal stuff out of it.
In went a CompuStar PRO 2 Way Rechargeable 1 mile paging system with optional Touch RPS panel, and battery backup. Also done at the same time Drone Mobile GPS tracking/SmartPhone interface device.
Then came time for HIDz in in the reverse lights
Then came 12 pieces of 24LED panels thru out the car. this is so bright
I found a set of thin load bars on craigslist for $75 the guy took $50 and i had a Yakima Load Warrior cargo basket with the 33" extension from my old XC70.
so it went from this.
Soon after, i found the need to do backup camera and video up front and AUX input because sirius coming thru FM modulated sucked, wanted bluetooth too.
dis-assembled a OEM nav screen and put my own in there. My car did not come with nav
Got a OEM Nav screen from erie vovo, got the Dension Gateway 500 and installed a left over Motorola IHF1000 bluetooth and used the speaker from the center channel as the bluetooth speaker. did a backup camera too
Started getting the itch for more performance. Bad idea since i have a T6, but i figure a new exhaust never hurt anything. Since i put the tire in the cargo basket, i have alot of room for a DUAL exhaust!
ebay'd a obx exhaust, at that time got it for $425 delivered, i have been told its cheaper now.
Here it is..
Dont think i didnt do any maintenance or repairs/upgrades while i had it....Here's the first with the suspension
H and R Lowering Springs, eliminated the rear Nivomats. it came with 4 springs and two rear shocks
before and after
along with the springs i also did
- both inner tie rods
- both outer tie rods
- IPD rear camber bushings (needed with the lowering)
- both front lower control arms
- both front sway bar end links
- both front ball joints
- steering rack (that broke later)
and two of these
5 gallon tank, dual 480 CFM Viair air pumps and a set of train horns. 5 hours later i had this under there
I also toyed with the idea of making my XC90 a 6 passenger, i did....
found out that fold the middle row down and dont pull out the bottom coushin for the third row, the kids would sit better in their recaro booster seats
Then came time for brakes, i changed out the lines, the brake booster went, changed front and rear rotors and pads. theres a write up on the brake lines in DIY
Did O2 Sensors too, not that it needed it. Just to get better gas mileage.
Her first winter..
Got a good deal on a set of OEM 18" Pegasus Wheels, but it needs to be bored out to 67.1MM
Did a set of Nitto NT420s tires in 255/55/18 and took the grill apart and painted it flat black
Got bored one day and did LED lights, tinted the tails and did 2007 and newer tails too
Did LED upper tails too
Changed out the fog lights i had on the rack for reverse for a set of Rigid Industries LED D2 Dually Fog Lights
Sirius Backseat TV, look for the write up in the audio section
