Just arrived today and I had the camera handy. I must say I've seen a number of CF parts on various cars, Volvo and otherwise, and let me just remark on the quality of these parts....outstanding. Extra points for excellent customer service. <p>Also - I've done some serious damage to my back. Not only am I thankful that the R has such awesome seats, there's no way I can do this installation myself in the next few weeks. Any locals with experience want to take a stab at installing this sucker along with my Boost Gauge? I have $5 and some candy...kidding. PM me if interested!<p><IMG SRC="http://i270.photobucket.com/albums/jj114/mentos2424/CFW%20Gauge%20Pod/DSC01270.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://i270.photobucket.com/albums/jj114/mentos2424/CFW%20Gauge%20Pod/DSC01267.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://i270.photobucket.com/albums/jj114/mentos2424/CFW%20Gauge%20Pod/DSC01261.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://i270.photobucket.com/albums/jj114/mentos2424/CFW%20Gauge%20Pod/DSC01260.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://i270.photobucket.com/albums/jj114/mentos2424/CFW%20Gauge%20Pod/DSC01266.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://i270.photobucket.com/albums/jj114/mentos2424/CFW%20Gauge%20Pod/DSC01264.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://i270.photobucket.com/albums/jj114/mentos2424/CFW%20Gauge%20Pod/DSC01265.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://i270.photobucket.com/albums/jj114/mentos2424/CFW%20Gauge%20Pod/DSC01268.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://i270.photobucket.com/albums/jj114/mentos2424/CFW%20Gauge%20Pod/DSC01269.jpg" BORDER="0">

Paint it before you put CF into an interior with a single other piece of CF. Plus, it's rice otherwise. <p>Install it pretty easy, the stock one just pops right out. Do you already have a boost gauge installed?

You can order it as just straight fiberglass as well, but opted specifically for this. I was waiting for the pod to do the gauge installation, so no, it's not in yet.

The truck cost me a whole $300...I was thinking window tint, but that's just as expensive as the truck! The cops don't like it, but then again, they don't like my truck to begin with.<p><IMG SRC="http://hughstimson.org/gallery/d/2081-2/julianna+free+candy+1280.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>Works every time.
