    XV 2.0D SE LUX manual
  1. Hi all, I just upgraded my Volvo C70 interior lights to LEDs and very pleased with the result. Just cheapo Chinese ones from eBay but have made a massive difference to the map, rear passenger and number plate illumination. I have tried looking for the same for my 2012 XV (manual, diesel) to get it looking a bit fancier. The bulbs are a bit smaller than the Volvo ones - undoing the light domes has been easy enough but I can't seem to find any LED bulbs. Anyone out there that has done this to their XV and able to nudge me in the right direction? PS Where's the bl**dy snow got to, I want to go out and give my XV a proper run 😊
  2. Thanks all, looked at cheaper options but these do look the best bet for all year round driving.
  3. Hi all - so I took the plunge and am now the proud owner of a 2012 2.0d manual XV - and I have to say that I am very pleased with it! Thinking about winter coming along and whilst I don't want to put winter tyres on specifically, does anyone have recommended tyres that are good all year round, good in the wet and fuel economy etc? Plus any horror stories or brands to stay away from? Here's my new toy 😁 And I also found these tyres, has anyone used these on their XV?
