Should I expect to see you running on Friday? I'll try to grab some vids.

Hopefully, but last I checked, rain was in the forecast for the entire weekend so I'm not sure if any of us will be there.  sad

If you do see me, I'd very much appreciate it if you got some footage!

I went to New England Dragway today. It started to drizzle literally right as I arrived. Big fucking waste of time and money. I might try to return tomorrow although the weather is looking sketchy for tomorrow as well. Cloudy with a chance of showers, just like today.  unamused

I went back the next day and ran a personal best of 13.1 at 101 mph. Trans problems ensued, so it wasn't all good.  neutral

Trans was replaced under warranty and I picked up the car today. Thank god I pushed for an extended warranty at the time of purchase, which is still good until August 2017. The dealership did see my modifications and they were willing to look past them and keep corporate off my back. Good people.  up up

You lucked out.  Plenty of dealers would have black flagged you and screwed you out of the warranty.

lol Why'd you buy an extended warranty when you can't leave a car alone in terms of mods?! Definitely lucked out on this one, but good for you. up up

I didn't pay for the warranty specifically. I pushed for it at the time of purchase. While they didn't budge much on the price of the car, they were willing to make my car into a CPO car with 2 extra years and 100k miles of warranty without having to pay extra for it. It'll expire at the end of next summer.

Do dealers really lose much on warranty work tho?  Doesn't Volvo pay them for the labor hours and what not?

I don't know, although it's possible that dealerships are pressured by corporate overlords to play hardball for the sake of saving the company money. I cannot confirm this suspicion, but I do know that many dealerships are reluctant to help a customer with obvious mods. In my case, my service advisor said that they didn't have to get Volvo corporate engineers to look at the car, which enabled them to keep hush hush about my modifications so they could help me out. Perhaps some dealerships or car companies have much more corporate oversight than this one? In any case, my service advisor was incredibly nice and helpful and really went out of his way to save my ass.  heart

Yes! It feels smoother but possibly a little slower than before. I haven't really gotten on it too hard since I want to make sure I break it in a bit, so I can't say for sure.
