    do K&N air filters make a difference?

    does having it chipped improve the performance enough to justify cost?

    any other suggestions? - sensible please gents :)

    No not really, any air filter upgrade will provide a negligable change in
    performance of an otherwise stock engine. Is this car a turbo?

    You *might* get some improvement then, depending on the efficiency of the
    stock filter. Volvos have historically had massive filters that can flow a
    lot of air, I've never seen under the hood of a V40 though.
