Need opinion: What do you think of the new Volvo C30?

So i was lookin through the carguide for 07 and i came accross the new volvo c30 and it looks hot. It's got a 218hp turbo 5cylinder engine. I bet with some mods it could be a real sweet machine. Do u think it would be a good tuner project? Post up any ideas

heres a pic

I don't know much about tuning a Volvo motor but I could see a lot of visual mods you could do to it.

I was actually going to sell the vic for one of these. Pretty pricey.

HondCivc91 is an unknown quantity at this point
i sat in one at the Philly Car Show a few weeks ago and it's pretty nice. The backseat doesn't exsist though, it's really cramped. I think I would rather have an EP over this.

Thanks for that but i'd prolly take out the backseat and do a crazy fibreglass audio system. And comparing it to the ep3 this has a turbo already but ya i see what you mean. I wonder how much power it would have if u upgraded the turbo and fuel system
