I'll find out after the next two tanks. City mileage was garbage at 18-20mpg so hoping it improves.

I did notice excess blowby this morning until it warmed up. Not sure if its caused by the changes or because it was cold thus morning.

Don't think I ever got much better than about 20 mpg in the city so don't hold your breath...

That seems about right to me. I'm running 10 L/100 km on the highway not sparing the horses and around 12-13 in the city when I'm just taking it easy. YRMV.

Was able to get a Cherry Turbo Brace on Facebook so hopefully, install during Thanksgiving.

Meanwhile, are you able to retrofit quad headlights from a 700 to the 940?

Also, I think I saw Chris M a while back around 17th. Hello! =D>

Short answer, anything is possible if you have the determination/skill. Long answer is no, everything forward of the windshield/front doors is different ie: hood, fenders, grill, bumper etc.

Enjoy the brace.

I have a friend in kelowna with some kaplenkhe coil overs that he would sell. Doesn't have the shocks to go with them though. I can out you in touch on FB if he is still looking to sell. (he was asking a grand)

Thanks!

Hmm... New ones are $1200-1300 post-exchange rate though... Not much difference.

Tempting because shipping won't be brutal, I hope.

Don't think this will sell, so I'll continue upgrading the interior. Is the shifter easy to remove and can be changed with something else? Looking for a leather-covered shifter, maybe. Or a wood one similar to the XC90s.

Generally no, but you can get creative.
