Hello all,<P>Here is a picture of the 2001 Volvo S40 SE. I think that it looks really good with the blacked out headlights, Titanium color, front spoiler extension, and different wheels. This car is fully loaded and has a price of around $28,775.<P> <IMG SRC="http://www.autobase.com/photos/large/00061292.jpg"> <P>-Drew <p>[This message has been edited by InDy (edited 02-21-2001).]

I just shot some pics of this car at a dealer too. I'll try to get details up over the next few days.<P>I dig the new headlights on the car. The interior is also very cool with leather stitched into the bolsters, but sport cloth otherwise.<P>They should have offered 16" wheels on this car.

They should have put either of these on the Special Edition!<P><B>Cyber 6.5x16</B><BR> <IMG SRC="http://sc2.m.volvocars.se/bilder/pp/news40/exterior/rims/p40-62.jpg"> <P><B>Crater 7x16</B><BR> <IMG SRC="http://sc2.m.volvocars.se/bilder/pp/news40/exterior/rims/p40-61.jpg"> <P><B>Instead of these: Stellar 6x15</B><BR> <IMG SRC="http://sc2.m.volvocars.se/bilder/pp/news40/exterior/rims/p40-65.jpg"> <P>-Drew

I believe the Stellar wheels are installed on the vehicle no?<P>I think they should have lowered it more, made 16" wheels standard, higher output, and badged it with an "R" rather than brand it with an SE, that's so... unVolvo like, SE belongs on a Toyota or a Honda.<P>Carlos<BR>2001 Volvo S40 "Volvo for life"

Yeah, but to be an R, they should really up the hp and offer a manual also, at least the hp...<P>So, that could be a home-built special. Get some 16s, I like the first wheel above, or some 17s, a chip and an R emblem. Voila.

The blacked out headlights with standard Xenon's look great! I wish that they would bring them to the US!<P>-Drew<p>[This message has been edited by InDy (edited 02-21-2001).]

Does anyone know how much the blacked out headlights go for? Is it an entirely different assembly than the regular S40 headlights, or just a piece that goes inside? Also how much would the lip spoiler extension be?<P>-Geoff

I wonder if they are even available yet over the parts counter. Maybe Volvoparts.com would know. That guy is pretty cool. He's helped me out before.<P>This car would be so much cooler with a set of Cybers and 5-speed manual availability.

All they need to do is put better wheels on that thing, a 5-speed, up the horsepower to 200, and bring over those Xenon headlights, and I would be a happy camper, and I am sure a lot more people would go for it.<P>-Drew

Will there be a special edition of the V40 as well? That's a sweet-looking sedan, in any case! Sounds like a good deal too.<P>

Ok kiddies! For anyone looking for the "blackout" style headlights that come with the SE version of the S40, I have them! Check out our Ebay auction #563020792 with ID of [email protected] Happy bidding!<P>P.S. Thanks Evolvo for the compliment <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif"><P>
