And just like that we’ve got a new Autolight up.
Click the image above to get yourself there and while you’re at it have a look around, we sell car parts you know!
Autolight features individuals and the cars they’ve poured their time and hearts into.
This time we feature Ian Carr and his 1999 Volvo S70 T5.
It’s hard to argue that the cars that are rolling off the dealer’s lots right now have more personality than the cars of yesteryear. Have a look at the JDM Legends video below if you disagree:
But it’s hard to tell where those personalities went. Many of you have spoken up on Facebook in recent history regarding the matter, Silas Humphreys mentioned his hopes in the stream:
“I’m hoping we could bin all the advanced trickery and distractions and get a car that doesn’t bug you while you’re trying to drive, and you can work the stereo on without having to look at the thing.”
I think Silas is on the right path, I love the idea of a couch with wheels, but I don’t want to forget that I’m driving. And as silly as it sounds I almost feel like BMW might have the right intentions with their new M5 and their Active Sound Design playing engine sounds through the speakers. Turn the volume down if you despise it, but the sound environment in a vehicle is one of the necessary senses of the Driver’s car.
So, here’s to hoping that the automobile manufacturers don’t forget that there’s people behind those wheels, people with senses and visceral needs.

Snabb performance air intakes new to the FCP Euro website! A Snabb intake is a relatively cheap upgrade that will improve engine performance providing your Volvo with 5 to 10 extra horsepower and added torque with proper tuning. As an added benefit you’ll also notice improved gas mileage because of the superior free-flowing design of the metal intake tube. Believe it or not flow bench testing showed an impressive 21% increase over stock!
Any Volvo enthusiast should consider a Snabb intake kit to get the most out of your car every time you get behind the wheel. This intake will give the car a deeper more aggressive sound at wide open throttle making your Volvo even more of a joy to drive. The signature intake sound is pronounced as it takes in a much greater amount of air compared to stock.
The Snabb intake kit comes complete including a polished pipe with needed vacuum fittings, silicone elbow, silicone reducer and all the needed clamps for an air tight seal. The polished pipe will look great under your hood, overall a nice part to dress up the look of your engine bay. You’ll definitely notice a difference once you remove the restrictive factory setup and go with a fast but affordable Snabb intake on your ride.
This intake will be quick and easy to install, you’ll only need basic hand tools and no more than a half hour of your time. Many Snabb intake kits have been listed on FCP Euro for popular Volvo makes and models. If you don’t see a kit listed for your car or have any questions about our intake kits please feel free to give us a call 888.385.1276.
