Well I have an 06 SR, but for some reason I think the black bumper trims makes the R sexy. So I did this...



The story? Well, I got a little time on my hands so I decided to paint the bumper trim, at the same time I redid the Volvo, R and AWD badges, and then attached the spoiler wrapped in 3M Carbon Fiber...

I still need to finish the sides and the front lower bumper though.

I like it. I have two suggestions though:
1. Paint the exhaust black. It will disappear under the car if you do.
2. Paint the rotor hats silver, if you haven't already. The brakes will stand out more against the the black wheels.

OK, ENOUGH! I got an R to have a nice car to drive that has good handling and performance. Now you guys are pushing me to R OCD. You know, you are sitting quietly in the house and then you jump up and go raise the hood to get an idea of what some perf part would like like under there. You lay on the ground and look under the car. You remove things and take them inside and wash and detail them. You remove wheels and clean brake rotor hats. etc, etc

Does Xanax help? (please tell me that Xanax isn't also the name of some performance parts company!)

Thanks everyone lol! I just got back from Cars & Coffee Dallas (Plano). Bimmerdood posted a pic up a few posts... We were the only 2 Volvos there I think...

I tinted the headlights temporarily to see how it would look. They're coming off tonight because I can't see a damn thing in the dark!!

And yea, I'm gonna show the rotors some red & black love, and then some drilled rotors love. For anyone being curious to the black paint, they're all Plastidip. They're not permanent for sure.

Looks good!! I'm guessing that you can tint headlights in Texas. Around here you will get pulled over pretty quickly.
