DVS performance also sells replicas of them. Here's one on one of my favorite 240's.

Spoiler should be easy enough if you're willing to put up a few hundred bucks.

Wheels, look at several thousand.

Body kit? It looks nice, which means it's probably only available in sweden, several hundred to purchase, several hundred to ship?

My numbers could be off, this is just what I recall from the tens of other people who've asked in the past.

The wheels run about $1400-$1800, but it's the shipping/duties and their general impossibility to get here in the states that gets ya...

You can get them here.. http://www.gummihuset.se/aluminiumfalgar.asp?dept_id=405&inch=18 , price is 1875 SEK each (that is including the Swedish sales tax) -- don't know how much the shipping would be but not cheap that's for sure ;)

Last I tried, they wouldn't ship to the US. We all know where the wheels we want are, just can't get them out of the old country. Might be different now, maybe they'll actually ship across the pond.

i looked at getting these along time ago...5+ years ago? they would ship to the us at that time. IIRC the wheels where like $1300 for a set of 5x18" and shipping on top of that was an addtional 5-800. so yeah like $1400-1800us for a set. good luck!

im embarassed for that 242 with such an embarassment of a muffler. everyone has those things. around here everyone calls them gook flutes.. for many given reasons lol
otherwise that car is awsome. i wana get a group a soiler somtime. and i wish super dtm's were avalible in the states

Looks like an HKS muffler. Same as Hank Scorpio has on his 850.

you guys don't have the right PEROGATIVE to get those wheels.
For the cost of shipping, fly yourself over with an overnight carry on and bring them home personally!
BTW - That's not a bodykit, I don't think. Looks like standard 86+ cladding that has been painted.

Unless it's a knock-off, that muffler is a HKS Carbon-ti. Cool on an MKVI Supra turbo, not so much on a Volvo.....I used to own a Subaru, so yeah, I know my JDM.... :-P

I was just working out the ease of flying over with some wheels/parts that you guys want, adn then flying back with a new kayak... i'm sure it would break even (just!)

Looking at it a new boat's 550ish, US$1050... so it could break even as a new boat is 750 over here...

Just because the car is nicer doesn't mean somebody can't have an opinion that the exhaust looks f'ing stupid.

I like the car though.

The gummihuset business is wierd. You can NOT pick up the wheels from any warehouse of theirs. You have to order them by phone, and they will send them to you. But they will not ship them anywhere but Sweden. (at least it was like that)

So yeah, good luck trying to get some if you're not in Sweden. :e-shrug:

The style of that kind of muffler is called a "cannon", obviously. Me calling it rice... well cannon style mufflers are of Japanese origin, and I meant no offense by my comment.

It certainly is a nice car, I agree. The muffler is not my taste, but who am I to judge someone else's taste?

if you want to get technical, "cannon" is a derisive term used to describe a "canister-style" muffler

but I like "gook flute" the best so far.

I like the wheels. I never have been a fan of the GrpA spoiler. The exhaust wouldn't bother me, but I wouldn't pay for that either.
It probably sound better than my NA with a header, 2.5" exhaust and a Magnaflow.

I checked about 6 months ago on the wheels for my cousin and if you have a friend in Sweden that will do all the foot work for you (receive money from you, purchase wheels, package wheels, ship wheels to USA) you will be spending about $2000 not including taking care of your buddy in Sweden.

Edit: that was for the 18" version

OK. You are entitled to your opinion, and it does look out of place on a swedish car, but I'm just sayin' I'd take it over most of the ghetto exhaust I see coming out of here.
