Looks pretty sweet, I'd asume much more restriction of airflow in comparison to the stock c70 grill. Am I correct, or is this something that would be aight to try and not compromise performance and efficiency?<p> <IMG SRC="http://mediaservice.photoisland.com/auction/Oct/200210152576580676739137.jpg" BORDER="0">

It does look pretty mean, perhaps with a stock turbo & intercooler the wind block may not be so bad... Maybe up close it we could see exactly how much air goes by. Looks pretty good though! I like the new exterior touches on this last C70 (stock) Volvo has hit the nail on head when they styled this car, It's too bad this is the last of that production platform <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emsad.gif" BORDER="0">

Very nice <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> The babes must dig that.<p>That grill probably would look best on a Black or Silver car with chrome rims, IMO. Very in your face. Wonder if it is a kit or a custom fabrication?

I had to stare at that picture for quite a bit before realizing it's a 40 series. The clear headlights was the giveaway.

It looks custom done. IPD has the chicken wire grille going. But this looks something more like a Trenz grille.

<BLOCKQUOTE>quote:<HR>That first pic is of a S40 front.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><p>yeah I know, but just pondered doing that to a c70 and the front end is similar enough to get the jist of it

Have 40's headlights been clear for awhile?<p>I'd like to put the new c70 clear lights on my c70, but they're not available yet.<p>I don't think 40's would fit, would they?

They have been clear for as long as I can remember, but the black out lenses ones are for certain models, I know Carlos can probably tell you better on this.<p>Of course it will not fit the 70 series. The sizes are not even remotely close....hehehe..b/c I checked. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emwink.gif" BORDER="0"><p><BLOCKQUOTE>quote:<HR>Have 40's headlights been clear for awhile?<p>I'd like to put the new c70 clear lights on my c70, but they're not available yet.<p>I don't think 40's would fit, would they?<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

i dont really like the way it looks... but of course...i dont like how that style looks on any car.<p>i see it on a lot of ricer cars or those G-ridaz SUV's...looks tacky imo..<p>iPd has a better looking mesh grille

The complete front is different with a C70, look a the lights inside, they are round...(and a lot smaller) the frontbumper, the foglights, the headlightwipers are in opposite direction......<p>Nice S40 though.<br>
