Apr-May 2022 PerformancePost #13
Welcome to the Thirteenth ÄLG Performance Post.
Expect to hear about new products, offers, updates and announcements right here.
Just April and May to update you on the run-up to show season:
Snapshot of April and May;
-Car of the Month!
Halo kits for Volvo C30 (and Pre-Facelift S40/V50) are back in stock and selling fast! Thank you for everyone's patience whilst we sorted the stocking issue. We will be restocking again within the next few weeks as the majority have sold again already.
Volvo C30 Grilles are all sold out for now, new stock is nearly complete and will be leaving the supplier within the next few weeks. We estimate the crate to arrive around July/Aug. We have so far not opened this batch up for pre-orders, but that may change.
We are on our last set of ALG Lowering Springs, so now is also your chance to grab that last set. We’re planning a restock in the coming months but can't pinpoint when yet, as the supplier has had difficulties over the past few months. So we may end up changing the colour of the springs yet again. We're also keen to get some Volvo V40 Springs in as-well, as we know the V40 has got issues with the standard springs. Many customers look to upgrade to lowering springs when their standard springs inevitably snap. Hopefully we will get to that this summer
Genuine Volvo Parts
We are going to be adding genuine blue boxed Volvo parts to the website soon, including filters, timing belt kits, seals and gaskets etc. Initially we will list mainly T5 parts, but this will grow as we invest in more stock.
Bonnets are still on their way, we've had another bump in the road that we are trying to straighten out. Bonnets should be out within the next few months! We can't wait to see the final product as they're already looking amazing.
Due to the extended time scale we want to prioritise our very patient pre order customers and so have stopped taking new orders for these, for the moment. Once delivery resumes we will reopen for bonnet orders.
We pride ourselves on our remapping software being safe and reliable for your engine, delivering smooth and consistent performance gains. Unfortunately, we do find customers coming in who have been poorly advised and have vehicles without the proper supporting modifications for the power level, which will cause problems later down the line.
At ALG, we’re happy to guide you through the different aspects of modifications before we remap a vehicle, and advise why they are needed.
Our remaps have also been proven to improve fuel economy, which has been very popular at the moment
Remapping can improve fuel economy which is popular at the moment given the ever increasing fuel prices…
In May we had an offer for remaps;
We had a busy week! But don’t worry if you missed this offer because we will be bringing it back again at some point.
Car of the Month!
The winner is Gabriella Kiru!
Thank you to everyone who entered, we loved looking through everyone's cars!

Change in Services
Some of you may have seen our post about exhaust work. We will no longer be offering this service until further notice. Remapping, services and engine work will NOT be affected.
We know a lot of people will be disappointed with the news but we're excited for the future of the company and what's to come from here.
