Nice humble post OP. We all started somewhere and I still am hopeful to get into an M3 someday as my dream BMW. Take care of the Volvo and drive safe!

Happy early birthday Steve. Good luck with the wheel choice -- every person has different tastes in what they think 'looks good'. Pick the one you think looks best/fits your budget and don't look back

Glad to hear we are getting another enthusiast behind the wheel in the next couple of weeks - hope the car is good to you!

Congrats, man, and happy early birthday. Drive safe out there! As for the wheels, am I the only one that's not feeling the TSW?

Awesome car! Congrats and happy birthday. But honestly, save the money. You'll end up spending all this cash on the car only to get rid of it in the end. All those thousands spent on modding can go toward your BMW

Nice car! Congrats and happy birthday

My first car was also a Volvo, but not nearly as cool as yours It was a 1984 DL lol (I'm just a bit older than you though haha!) They are great cars and you'll love it. I've also had a turbo Volvo and they haul ass.

Enjoy it!

edit: also not sure what would look better with a silver color, black or silver rims?

what the car looks like:

wheels ive looked at: http://www.discountedwheelwarehouse....%2Es&pID=36901
http://www.discountedwheelwarehouse....%2Es&pID=38804
http://www.discountedwheelwarehouse....%2Es&pID=39403
if anyone can photoshop these wheels on it, it would be amazing

-steve

This is your car so do as you will but I personally think the wheels you picked out would look shitty. I wouldn't put black wheels on a silver S70. May I suggest the Pegasus "R" wheel in this thread:

http://forums.swedespeed.com/showthr...on-18x8-Wheels

Also, this was my first car as well (actually a 1999 and white). Loved it to death and had a great time working on it. One of the first things I did was change all the dashboard lights from the awful pale green color to blue. Thought about red too...

Hey, congrats on your first car. Mine was much smaller

I did a photoshop with the TSWs and a drop for you (not my best, sorry for the quality)

I can't find any pictures of the interior, but i'll look for more later. All I really did as far as the interior was the blue dash lights and a double din pioneer DVD headunit. Besides that, almost everything else I did with the car was audio related as you can see from the pics.
