Good point...lots of different choices in the world of consumer products...something for everybody...Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I happen to think it looks just fine and that your example picture lacks something, but hey, that's just me. Good thing they have aftermarket products for guys like you.
Always thought the size of the Volvo emblem was over done! Kind of like third country style. Very lacking in restrain and taste! Next time, they may increase the size to resemble a pie plate!Here's the look I have in mind...a more tasteful & elegant solution!
You could mount a smaller OEM Volvo emblem in right corner of the grill...
Hopefully someone will offer a similar grill for the 2011 & newer S60 models soon!
Great update, thanks. And what a shame.Horbury is at corporate parent Geely and Volvo replaced him with ex-VW designer Thomas Ingenlath. http://www.autoblog.com/2012/03/13/volvo-replaces-peter-horbury-with-ex-vw-designer/
I don't mind the big herkin' logo badge on my RD. But I also like the Heico one above. I guess I'm not too picky about it, and I'm a designer! :facepalm:You're right...the C-class grill is just as bad as the Volvo!
I don't think as many people as you think will realize it's a Volvo. Some cars, you just know what it is in that single split second instance of a blink of the eye. Other cars, you have to look for subtle details. IMO, the S60 is the latter.Yes...it's obviously a Volvo.!
