Approx cost of windshield replacement

My son was driving my V70 and was too close to a dump truck. A rock hit the windshield and we now have a star that is about 2 inches across. Definitely bigger than a US quarter. I expect to need a new windshield. Any idea of what cost I should expect? My insurance deductible is $500 so it will proba...

XC90 (2016 or later) buying advice

Later this year my son will start driving my V70 and I'm looking to buy a used XC90 (2nd gen) for myself. As I'm doing my research I've run into a couple of questions that confuse me and I can't find straight answers on: 1) I'm unclear on the difference between the T5 and the T6. Is the only differe...

"SERVICE" light comes on but no codes

When I start my V70 (2001, 2.4T) it shows the word "SERVICE" in orange on the right side of the dash. After driving for a few mins it goes off, but when I start again it comes back on. I plugged my code reader in and got NO codes. What does this SERVICE light mean? I'm close to needing an oil change...

Re: Looking for XC60 buying advice

This morning in traffic I saw an XC60 with "3.0 T5 AWD" on the back. Looked like the 2015 or later model year. So I assume that was the engine that was only available for a short period. I need to go out to some dealers and drive some XC60's to get a feel for the engine options. I'm so dreading the ...

Re: Looking for XC60 buying advice

Thank you both! Very helpful info (and pics!). Didn't know about the premium issue. June: I don't think I can afford a 2018 so won't get that nice Nav in the dash. I'll do some test drives but will prob seek out a T6. Jimmy57: Since you've driven both the XC60 and XC40, how does the trunk space comp...

Looking for XC60 buying advice

Later this year when my son starts driving I plan to give him my 2001 V70 2.4T. I figured with only 143K miles on it, it will be a safe and reliable car for a teenage driver. So I'll need another car for myself and I've started looking for an XC60 (probably years 2013-15) but I've got some questions...

Re: LED Headlamp options

Here are 2 pics of the headlights. It seems it might be there was moisture in there once that dried up. One of the pics is upside down, but you can see what's going on. Both headlights have it.

Re: LED Headlamp options

Thanks for all the comments. I installed Philips H7 X-tremeVision bulbs for the low beam. They replaced some "standard" Osram bulbs. After driving a few times at night I'm concluding that the new bulbs don't give me better light (no noticeable difference). When I installed the bulbs I noticed that t...

Re: LED Headlamp options

Thank you both for the comments and suggestions. Sounds like it might not be worth it. Ratnalle, I will try the halogens you suggest. I'm not sure what it's in there now (a cheap Osram I think) and I really want more light for driving at night on country roads.

LED Headlamp options

Does anyone know if it's possible to put LED bulbs in my headlights? Does it require changes to the electrical system?

Any recommendations for the type or brand of bulb? This is for my 2001 V70 2.5T.
