Default V60 D3 performance tune up

Hi All,

I have a 2011 V60 D3 that the older it gets, the more I love it.




Bought it with 38k miles on it and I'm now up to 108k after two and a half years. The payments will be up just after Christmas and I have decided to keep the car instead of buying another as it looks current and fresh.

So, to the point of the post. I was thinking of spending some cash on the car to boost performance and improve the appearance. I use the car for work so it has to remain reliable and retain its dignity if you know what I mean.

Areas of possible improvement;

Wheels
Re-map
Exhaust (currently single pipe)
Body styling

So, over to you guys. I want something that is understated and not banger'ised'.

What have you got? Photo's appreciated.

Depends how much you want to spend and how far you want to go? Wheels will just be cosmetic but wider tires are a good option for handling.

As for performance, just to give it some breathing and boost just pop on a better intake and a remap. Exhaust wont really do much unless you are after noise? but for cosmetics you could get a twin pipe but you would need to alter the bumper if you only have a single exit (more cost just for a standard look really but thats a personal descision)

If you want to do anymore stuff on power you will really need to dig deep here but if not you could branch of to handling and look at coilovers and uprated anti roll bars etc to give the car a better feel.

My car is in my signiture with mods I have done and mods coming
