Let’s talk 2000 V70R dual muffler
I need to replace the muffler system and midpipe in my 1998 V70 AWD. From reading here and on Volvospeed, it seems that the dual muffler system, part no. 9470703, from the 2000 V70R will fit. I realize it offers no performance benefit, but it looks great! The sources listed on the old threads don’t work anymore. The only source I’ve found for it is MySwedishParts.com with a price of $346 plus shipping. Does anyone know of a lower price source?
Also, while the ECT (Eurosport) dual exhaust is stainless steel, my guess is that it is louder and boomier than the Volvo version. Any experience with it?
Bonus! More on the Volvo V70
Late in 1996, Volvo introduced a new estate car to the market, the V70.
The Volvo V70 was developed from the concept of the successful 850 Estate which had then been on the market since February 1993.
The exterior of the new V70 showed softer styling than its predecessor, but still carried a strong Volvo identity including the typical almost vertical rear end. Inside the car, the dashboard was new, as was most of the interior. As regards safety, a number of important improvements were also made.
An interesting and successful addition to the V70 models was the all-wheel drive XC 70 models.
The Volvo V70 was produced until 2000, when it was replaced by the second-generation V70.
