Well, dont expect too much then. In my case it did improve response and car became a bit more "lively" but old filter was a bit dirty so not sure how much of that is because of new filter and how much due to high-flow design. Sound-wise, no changes at all. Good and quality made filter, but wouldnt call it "tune".

Probably the drop in. Main reason being I think the air filter is due to be changed anyway and the K&N one is meant to be cleanable so should save costs in the long term? If it's a slight upgrade that's good too. Not expecting much though. I was looking at cold air induction before but conflicting ideas about whether it increases performance or can actually decrease due to sucking in more hot air from the engine bay. All it's really good for is noise, which I don't care for :P

Not quite there yet, 600 miles to go but when the clock does tick over the 100k miles it will have been with my bum in the driver’s seat for all of that time. I bought the car new 5 years ago and it’s had just routine maintenance since, still on original clutch.

Well in that case you dont loose much, can only gain. I had to replace my filter so instead of spending 17e for new paper one, I spent 35e (bargain!) for K&N one. I would not replace it just for sake of "tuning" but in this case it was worth it. It will serve you longer and if it increases flow by even few ccm, why not?
CAI filter is a good option but only if you do it properly with cold air duct etc, if you just drop it into engine bay you will most likely gain zero.

word of advice - RTFM about those reusable filters, they come covered with oil from factory - some say its an excessive amount and advice on vacuuming/compress airing them before putting into car. Also same after every cleaning & re-oiling, wchich I didnt know about.

178k and still going well, spent a few £100 on it this year so far though. To be expected I suppose.

Thumbs up

Hello ggalah,

Previously I have found links to the workshop manuals. I think this is a link, and then you'll have to search.

https://workshop-manuals.com/volvo/v...ce_and_repair/


Is this any good?

Just passed 140k miles in my 2007 C30 2.0d. Only had the car a year and have done 17k miles in it so far. I think the 2.0d must be the most underrated engine.
