What!!? Stillen offering stuff for Volvos? I'm an old Nissan guy (Maxima) and Stillen is arguably the premier US based Nissan aftermarket outfit (expensive too) after Nismo, of course
.

I would never look there for "R" stuff. Good find http://********************/smile/emthup.gif

I used to use Stillen for Chevy truck accessories,when I worked at a Customizing shop. I dont think I wwould puirchase from them for my R. There stuff is a little cheap looking in my opinion. Id rather have the Evolve inserts,which seem to be more heavy duty. I really wish Hecio made a grille for the R.

At a glance, it looks like it could almost be a cheap DIY mod if you can find the wire mesh in a sheet.

Actually, the grilles are made by a company called "Street Scene Equipment", which makes grilles for all manner of cars.

Ummm.. has anybody noticed that the mesh pattern is identical to the "unique, patented diamond-shaped hole pattern" that Evolve says will "set your Volvo apart from the competition" ??/

Evolve care to comment? Unique? Patented? Hello?

Street Scene grille is exactly the same as the evolve grille. I just got a small piece of the street scene grille and custom cut it to fit the foglight area to match it with my evolve stock valance grille.

I was at first planning to get the evolve grille but they charged too much.

Street Scene does have a few design patents on custom grille designs. Search the US PTO for yourself.

My point was that the Evolve copy makes it sound like *they* have patented the design themselves and are thus offering a pattern that will be *exclusive* to their Volvo products, thus 'setting them apart'.

I could just resell mesh I bought at Home Depot. I'm sure somebody's patented it, but I didn't and if I sold you some you'd probably be pissed when you went to clean your stovetop vent and found it.

LOL I think my stovetop vent actually has a Volvo patented design. It might even have an R grille if I think about it really hard.


Anyway, I was actually responding to FRT. It sounded like he doubted that they even had a patent on it. Not that I disagree with anyone's surprise, just trying to be informative.
