Definately one of the best South African Spec V50s I've seen all day. http://********************/smile/emthup.gif wonder why US spec V50s don't get that chrom grill.
The chrome comes with the "behind the grill" flamethrower option for South African spec. vehicles.

Re: Machine... and machine... (autoduel)

Hey hey hey, no flame-throwers
Though I wish...

All S.A. spec. sportswagons come's with the chrome grilles and grey moulds in the lights units. Roof rails are also standard. Pretty much a full house. The 2.0D and 2.4i have the same equipment levels. The T5, additional to the others, have compass in rearview mirror, premium sound system, electric drivers seat, other alloys and of course the engine - that's it. And for all of this, we S.A. buyers pay a premium over you guys in the U.S.

Re: Machine... and machine... (GoBigRed)

I wish the US and Canadian spec non turbo cars had the chrome grill. That's been a Volvo tradition for a long time, where non-turbo gets the vertical slatted chrome, and turbo gets the black egg crate. Not sure why they mucked about with that on the S40/V50.

Nice looking car, BTW.
