Hi all,<p>First I want to say I'm dutch speaking, so sorry for my typing.<p>Great forum this is en man do I love the cars I can see here. At ours, in Belgium, we rarely see tuned volvo's.<p>I bought myself a V50 MY06 2.0 D a month agoo.<br>My girlfriend is pregnant so I needed a family car. But couldn't leave it like it was, so got me some wheels (borbet) and lowering springs (weitec). Grill is on his way, hopefully it arrives this week.<p>Got the wheels and lowering this weekend, here some pics I took;<p><IMG SRC="http://img507.imageshack.us/img507/7352/afbeelding021l.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://img36.imageshack.us/img36/1175/afbeelding024.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://img193.imageshack.us/img193/9476/afbeelding025.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://img132.imageshack.us/img132/115/afbeelding026.jpg" BORDER="0">

That is a very nice looking V50! Simple but elegant! What is next on the modifying list?<p><br> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: (s40boy)

Re: (Roco80)

Love the wagon. Ride height seems to be close to perfect. Nice work so far - not too over the top.

nice ride you've got there!! <br>I've got a 2.0D myself... and I love it!<p>front spoiler lip would be great, maybe you should have a look at <i>carreragt7</i>'s thread "C30 front lip conversion" (or something similar...) - I think his lip will be a nice add-on! <p>as for the waterfall grill, I'm on the "hate" side <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> <br>not a big fan of chrome...<br>(sorry chris <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> no offense ... hehe)<p>cheers!

Re: (Vash13)

I guess it really would look great under the car <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/cool.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>But then I'd still need front spoiler lip and sideskirts! Have to think it over.

Grill arrived yesterday, due to the bad weather, haven't been able to TRY and change it.<p>I'll post some pics as soon as it's on the car.
