Funny thing that you mention a black grill. The other day I was driving home and I saw this green 850 Turbo with the regular grill painted black. I thought that it looked really good.<P>-Drew

The black Volvo grill looks sharp! Question...is it gloss black or flat/matted black? My guess is matted. How did you do it?

It is a cool look, I removed mine scuffed it and had it painted Titanium grey like my trim and wheels. If you use the proper primer you can make anything stick!

That ad from IPD showing those color matched grilles does not look familiar to me. Is it old or brand new - the ad.<P>I like the black grill on black 850 but think the black mesh is gonna look ten times better on a white 850. We'll see soon.<P>now if they will just make aftermarket smoked rear lenses I'd be a happy man.<P><BR><P>

By the way JWKC,<BR>I LOVE the Supra and the 933! You have an exelent taste in cars! <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/biggrin.gif"> I just have one question. How did the CRX (looks like a Del Sol to me) make it into the collection? Nothing against them, It just is a totally different type of car from the rest of the group.<P>--Austin

Well, If you ever consider an upgrade for your japanese pocket rocket rag top, I would highly recomend the S2000! With 240 stock hp in a 2756lb car with a tight 6spd tranny clocking 0-60 in 5.8sec. And you know there will be superchargers and turbos out for that car before you can say vrooom vrooom. just a thought... <P>--Austin
