<B>It's official</B>. I have completely run out of ideas for things to fiddle with on the R while it's under warranty. I'm now reduced to fussing over things as small as the valve stems!!! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/zeroforum_graphics/screwy.gif" BORDER="0"> Admittedly, I stole this idea from <I>brf</I> and picked the caps up at my local Fred Meyer store today for a whopping $2.49. If you like the look and have a Fred Meyer where you live, you can have a set too for very little $. I'm not sure I will keep them, but I'll wait a few days to see if they grow on me.<p><IMG SRC="http://img91.imageshack.us/img91/56/wheel4kd.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://img91.imageshack.us/img91/3702/valvecap6vy.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>Now for the R sighting. It's VERY rare that I see an R up in my neck of the woods, let alone park next to one in a parking lot. I didn't even notice it until I was walking towards the store. A beautiful 2004 V70R with Gobi leather, roof rack, Sandberg Volvo license plate frames, and a silver Mac decal in the back window. Anyone want to claim ownership of this car? Here is a pic of our R's together (sorry about the blurry picture... crappy camera phone). Nice car and a big <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> on defensively parking it in the outskirts of the lot. <p><IMG SRC="http://img135.imageshack.us/img135/3307/rmeetsr7wg.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>- Tryg

Colored caps are a bit 'ricey' for me.<br>Nice wheels though. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0">

How about a Ford valve stem cap. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> Sorry, I couldn't find Volvo.<p><IMG SRC="http://www.griotsgarage.com/images/products/lg/92590_LG.jpg" BORDER="0">

I like blue...but I'm not sure about those caps. Kinda cheesy if you ask me.

I like the blue caps the same as the regular black caps. Still though, it's a pretty subtle contrast that I think is cool. It might look more together if your calipers were also that same blue.<p><A HREF="http://imageshack.us" TARGET="_blank"><IMG SRC="http://img234.imageshack.us/img234/6161/wheel4kd3qc.jpg" BORDER="0"></A><p>I also like how you put the volvo center cap back on your new rims <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">.

Is that a volvo stem cap or a takspeed one? I can't make it out. I've got the takspeed ones on my T5 (which is for sale by the way).
