Re: new head/corner lights (Ishtta)

I really need to see more pics because I can't decide whether I like them or not based on these ones (or any other previous pictures ever posted of the HOVA lights). On the one hand, the projectors look very cool, but then that weird parking/city light doesn't seem to fit. The side markers are cool because they lack the amber reflector, but I dunno if I like the weird circular design inside. In any case, I look forward to more pics, else I'll have got to see these in person sometime.<p>Do the lights make the car look cross eyed? Do they look like they could be mistaken for stock (if someone wasn't too familiar with Volvo) or are they blatantly aftermarket looking?

Actually it looks better than I expected. They don't stand out too much either, which is good I think.<p>However, the finishing quality is slightly less good than OEM ones, there are a few details here and there, but overall I'm very happy with them, and the people at Hova are very good salespeople. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: new head/corner lights (Alex960)

They look great on your car. And I agree that it doesn't make the car look cross eyed or weird in any way. But I'm not quite sold when it comes to replacing the OEM jewels.<p>(hehe, I just read what I wrote and thought it was funny in an immature sort of way)

Re: new head/corner lights (Alex960)

lets go, beam pattern, cha... cha...cha cha cha...<p>but yeah, that LED in the middle looks kinda weired.. if it was spread out a little more maybe it'd be better. I might remove it from mine (if its possible...)

The Hova's look really nice, especially the headlight section.<br>When will there be a one piece (headlight/turn) unit. I do think that would be super clean the seam between the headlight and the corner lights seems quite obtrusive even in stock form.

I was looking at my wife's '04, and I agree about the one piece. Seems someone could make a nice one for these cars... If the one's on my wife's car wasn't sooooo rounded, it looks as if they would almost fit. As they are now, the edge of the hood would stick out over the curve...and don't think the length is an exact fit...but.<p>Someone, please make us some one piece lenses!

During the daytime you hardly see it, which is normal for park lights, but in the dark, it does spread out pretty much..<p>I got the lamps adjusted. Now I have to find a wall to take a picture <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">
