Nice, very nice <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif"><BR>Are those gun metal gray? That looks nice with the tint and plastic trim, kinda ties it all together. Makes me think about dark rims...<P>

So now the question is, what tires do I buy, the P7000 super sports on them are kinda ****ed up. The wear is really un-even on one of the wheels, the pre-owner said his supension was the cause. One of the wheels has 3 holes in it <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/frown.gif"> . It is running ok for now, but I need to get new rubber on soon-ish. I was looking at <A HREF="http://www.tirerack.com," TARGET=_blank>www.tirerack.com,</A> and I can get new P7000 Super Sports for 104 each. Or... Yokohama Parada Spec-2 for 98 each. Hum, they have a p7000 all weather also. Not sure what to get <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif"><P>

You should get the BF Goodrich Scortures with the blue stripes! It would match your car <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif"><P>

u can always try to get it from the dealer...but if u get it painted thereafter, make sure the spoiler doesn't stretch the paint and cause some cracking (personal exp...). u could also get it pre-painted from volvo factory. if u don't lower, u'd prob have no problem with scrapping issues...

It will make the paint bend with the surface a bit before cracking. A quality bodyshop should know to do this without mentioning it but may be a good idea to ask.<P>
