Just had a few questions. Just got this car a few months ago. Just finished putting in a new timing belt so now at least some of the maintenance is up to date. Was this type of interior a common option, i havent seen it in many other volvos and i cant find what it was called from the factory? Also, i dont think my calipers are anything special but do all calipers come painted with the volvo logo on them in a certain package? From what i have seen i havent seen any other calipers that were painted from the factory<p><A HREF="http://img196.imageshack.us/my.php?image=img4131t.jpg" TARGET="_blank">http://img196.imageshack.us/my...t.jpg</A><p> <A HREF="http://img190.imageshack.us/my.php?image=img4130.jpg" TARGET="_blank">http://img190.imageshack.us/my...0.jpg</A><br> <br><A HREF="http://img42.imageshack.us/my.php?image=img4129.jpg" TARGET="_blank">http://img42.imageshack.us/my....9.jpg</A> <p><A HREF="http://img33.imageshack.us/my.php?image=img4133.jpg" TARGET="_blank">http://img33.imageshack.us/my....3.jpg</A><p><br><BR><BR>

Yea you click on that little icon with the mountains and <IMG SRC="http://" BORDER="0"> should pop up and you insert the link to the picture between the two brackets facing away from eachother. And I dont have an answer to your other questions sorry<p>BTW I really like your seats

Did you buy the car from an enthusiast? I've never seen the calipers painted like that from the factory. <p>You're seats are REALLY rare, enjoy them. I tried for so long to find a T5 with those seats. The only time i've ever seen those seats were in the initial reviews of the S60 T5 in 2001. <p>put this around the link to the picture. <p>

Re: (cmurphy2266)

i am the third owner of the car. I knew the second owner personally and I know he didnt paint the calipers so it is possible the first owner did it. Do you know what the type of interior is called? Like i know most are classified by their color but this has two colors so im not sure what it is called.<p>and ya idk how i feel about the moose stickers either. I just put them on since they were only $7, I guess i will take them off in a week or so<br>

Re: (rgl133)

cant get the pictures to work for some reason. Just comes up with a box and a red dot inside of it. Maybe i need to use a different uploading site or something. Sorry for having links and not straight pictures

You need to click on the pictures, and then use that URL. Also, if you use the url that is on the left at the very top, it will work. <p>The interior option is called Graphite/Sisal. I am supremely jealous, it's an absolutely beautiful interior. <p>About the prancing moose stickers. I think they are cool within the Volvo croud, i mean, i like them, but it makes Volvo drivers looks stupid (not you personally), because most people look at them and think they are Ferrari badges. I think it works when they are a color that matches your car color, and they are below the side markers.

Re: (cmurphy2266)

thanks a bunch for the info. To tell you the truth it was the interior that sold me on the car. It was the first S60 i ever looked at and after trying to find a manual one with the same interior i came up short. But i got a decent price, knew the owner and love the interior so i decided one more auto cant hurt. Im glad i bought the car i really love it. Just need to find a junker S60(which is next to impossible) and do the manual swap. Until then though i enjoy the car like it is.<p>And i agree about the sticker, i wanted a color that contrasted but the yellow is very bright and might pop a little too much.

That interior is sick!! I love the door panels<br>I'd forget about the transmission swap, not worth your time, money, frustration...

i like these instead on a black car<br><IMG SRC="http://i7.ebayimg.com/01/i/001/24/6a/9e79_1.JPG" BORDER="0"><p>as far as your calipers go, they were painted and the white "volvo" caliper stickers were bought online. i've seen them.<br>how long have you had this car? the black paint on the caliper doesn't chip or fade? no rust? i'm thinking of painting mine black too. thought of red but it stands out too much IMO.

Re: (kyungjunhan)

ive only owned the car for a few months, but i know the previous owner had the car for around a year. I personally knew him and i know he wasnt the type of guy to paint calipers so the paint is at least 1.5 years old. Its in great shape and i reccomend it. Gives it some extra flair. As far as color im actually thinking about going red or yellow. I figure why not, worse is i dont like it and then i have to repaint. Would give it a much sportier look, but any paint is better than no paint IMO.

You're car would look perfect if you painted the wheels black, and had like a red caliper if you really wanted to. I think black tethys look AWESOME!<p>Here is a thread talking about black tethys. <p><A HREF="http://forums.swedespeed.com/zerothread?id=117562" TARGET="_blank">http://forums.swedespeed.com/zerothread?id=117562</A>

Re: Car pics and a question? (JRL)

I recently painted my calipers in a gloss black finish... nice and subtle if you ask me. It really helps the aesthetics of the wheels <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <br>Note: they are dirty in the pic<p><IMG SRC="http://i420.photobucket.com/albums/pp282/NicholasZ/IMG_7534.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i420.photobucket.com/albums/pp282/NicholasZ/IMG_7535.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i420.photobucket.com/albums/pp282/NicholasZ/IMG_7536.jpg" BORDER="0">

My friend has a black 01 S60 T5, automatic, with that exact same interior. You are not alone.<p>I'll have to check out the calipers on his car.
