It's official. 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!!!
Admittedly, I stole this idea from brf 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.





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 http://********************/smile/emthup.gif on defensively parking it in the outskirts of the lot.

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.



I also like how you put the volvo center cap back on your new rims http://********************/smile/emthup.gif.

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).
