Alrighty folks,<P>Finally posted some pics of my car. It's back to stock condition (due to the accident - pics of that are up there too). got the XC grill instead. E-codes and HID should be installed in soon. Anyways, have a look and let me know what you think <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif"><P><A HREF="http://briefcase.yahoo.com/mike_c70" TARGET=_blank>Mike's briefcase</A>

Mike,<P>Your car is looking good as usual. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif"> For some reason, I always remembered your car in a slightly lighter blue.<P>Speaking of the HID and the E-code..man, mines are doing pretty well. Lined up with JRockCLS CL type S, and the ones from the C70 were much more concentrated and brighter. The light was also pure white like...I'm glad I picked this one instead the 6000K ones.<P>Well, it's a bit too bright in some way...could be a bit annoying for the oncoming traffic. I really have to aim the lights a lot lower than before.<P>

Its called an egg crate grille. Its even listed on the original sticker that was on the window of my car in the dealership. From what I understand about the C70 is that they (Volvo) only put that particular griile on the '01 C70 Special Edition. Volvo doesnt put them on the '02's.<P><P>

I just call that the Volvo grille.... <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/tongue.gif"> That and the vertical line one are pretty much the symbolic grille style for the late model (had it since 240s?) Volvos.<P>

I got the XC grille when I had the accident, I just gave the bodyshop the part number for the XC grill and they ordered it. I initially wanted the grill that Kai has, but it was too late for it. The grill runs around $175-200, depending on where you get it. You might get lucky and find one on Ebay from time to time.<p>[This message has been edited by mike_c70 (edited 06-14-2002).]
