    I've recently started getting into mods for my 2011 Volvo c30. Still a noob here, but just wanted to get an idea of what people are doing with their cars. So far, I have the following installed:

    1. HID lights (from ddmtuning)
    2. Hella supertone horns (these horns are extremely loud)
    3. 3" downpipe (from Elevate)
    4. Software ECM remap (from Elevate)
    5. K&N Typhoon intake (this sucker sucks air like a jet engine)

    Next steps are going to be the rear sway bar, inlet manifold and maybe the front-mounted intercooler.

    Due to crazy insurance prices I can only do OEM LED Tail lights, LED Number Plate Lights and LED Interior Lights on my Golf at the moment.

    I plan to maybe change the grille to the GTD version and change the headlight housing to projectors with DRL's... maybe with HIDs if I can get away with it.

    2008 Dodge 6.7L Cummins 3500 Mega Cab:
    Edge Juice w/Hot upgrade
    5" Turbo back Exhaust, Stainless Steel
    FASS Fuel Lift Pump
    S&B CAI
    Snow Performance Stage 2 Methanol Injection
    Bilstein on all 4 and the steering stabilizer
    Air Bags with the remote and compressor


    With those engine mods I'm putting down around 600HP and over 1000 lb-ft of torque.

    I also had to get a Super Glide sliding 5th wheel hitch because its a short bed, and I added a Subwoofer to the stock 'premium' sound system.
