Does anyone know where I can get a nose bra for my new S60 T5M (with headlight washer/wipers)? It's not available yet through the dealers.<P>Any recommendations are appreciated.

Beware: nose bras will do more to harm your paint than the rocks etc. you are trying to protect it from. All bras, no matter how tight, move back and forth slightly at speed, and slowly rub the paint off your car. You should think twice before adding a bras.

I have a close friend with a new Mustang GT, who put a bra on the front of his car and it did more harm than good. The paint on the front of his car used to be nice, but now it is pitted, rough, and has chips in it. When dirt and grit gets under the bra, it is like sandpaper on the paint. Also, when driving at high speeds, the bra will ingrain the paint. Volvo paint is very environmental friendly, which means that it is very soft, so putting a bra on might not be such a good idea. Unless you live in an area where there is a lot of debris, I would not recommend putting a bra on the front of your S60 T5.<P>Here is a Colgan 2 piece bra for the S80, I am not sure if they make one yet for the S60/V70.<P> <IMG SRC="http://albums.photopoint.com/j/View?u=562340&a=4157287&p=19004184&Sequence=9"> <P>-Drew

I have found on an individual trip basis that a bra can be very useful. People who put them on and leave them on because they think it's a nice "look" are just asking for trouble. <BR>I too am looking for a bra for my S60 because living in SoCal my road trips often take me through the desert or through areas that have a heavy concentrations of bugs. When traveling through such areas a bra is an indispensable layer of protection. <BR>
