Modded S70 – Managing Wear With an Eye on Longetivity

Let’s talk about the Modded S70

I have a 98 S70 GLT, i have completed stage 0 and have ordered a 16t and ARD Green tune (17 psi).
Being a teenager, I will of course keep my foot down. I realize how much wear and tear this causes and want to know things I can do to keep up with it. I want to keep this car for a long time, preferably until it is regarded as a classic.

When 1996 was coming to an end, a new Volvo model was introduced, the Volvo S70.

The Volvo S70 was developed from the successful 850 models, which had been on the market since 1991.

The exterior of the new S70 showed softer styling than its predecessor, but still carried a strong Volvo identity. Inside the car, the dashboard was new as was most of the interior. In the area of safety a number of improvements were made.

The Volvo S70 was produced until 2000.
