Yeah, Yannis also gave us the paint code in case anyone wants to refinish their cars in this color. We also agreed that the wheels isn't the most exciting thing on this car.

Yeah, if only they made the male version, coupe, hehe, just messin' with ya softies. Love the color, the headlights, two things to think about when big cosmetic changes are affordable for me. What colors are they making the new R volvos in? They should work in this color for sure. The grey body on anthracite finished rims, ooooh baby, haha.<BR><BR>

Nice! Love the color... should be easy to maintain in terms of dust and stuff. But I'm not feeling the rims. Propus rims are the way to go!

Good question, that was the 2nd thing I checked out that day when I was there. Yannis didn't understand why they didn't come with the rings either.<p>Maybe only European models get them? <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emcrook.gif" BORDER="0">

What do you guys think if this car was in coupe, lowered, with some gun powder look big wheels with polish lips? <p>I think it'd be a very good looking car...very mean looking! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Arghh...can't wait for Chris to try them out on his V70R. Heheh..this time I'll let someone else do the dirty work first. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emwink.gif" BORDER="0"> If they do work as well as they look, it's only an housing swap for me. I will still be able to keep my HID setup.<p>But I would definitely go for the european corner lenses, though.

Re: Pics of 2003 Dark Gray C70 Convertible from Stillman Volvo (topless_tart)

Sorry to disappoint, but there is a UK spec 2003 convertible on the Volvo stand at the motorshow and it doesn't have the chrome rings around the fog-lamps. The new headlamps are quite striking but I'm not too sure about the orange reflector plates on the sides of the front indicator lenses.<p>I was pleasantly suprised to see that the C70 was getting just as much, if not more attention than the S60R and V70R also on display. To be fair. the Rs were locked shut whereas people were free to sit in the C70 (plus it might be the oldest car in the Volvo range but it's still the best looking).

Hi Kai,<p>I prefer too the clean corner lights, but I'm afraid that the clear ones only comes with the amber reflection part, also the European models...<p>The Cars I've pictures seen all had the orange reflector <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emsad.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>How would it look with the 'old' clean cornerlights and the new clear headlights?<p>And ofcourse it's the best looking Volvo <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emsmilep.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">
