Re: Question about graphics for my S60 (deerok)

hmm i think ill go 4inch since i may possibly want to put two white vinyl stripes above the front wheel wells. Do these stickers and the vinyl stripes come off without damaging the paint if i ever want to take them off?

Re: Question about graphics for my S60 (deerok)

thanks a bunch. Do you guys think white stripes would look the best on a black S60? the stripes that go over the front wheels. I debating purchasing them

This is a REALLY stupid question... what does this sticker represent?

If you've ever looked into Volvo's crash testing, you'll see they do some unusual things to their cars, like drive them off of cliffs or smash them into mountains. One of their crash tests, specifically involving the XC90, involved the moose-avoidance test, where they situated a moose on a road course and put the XC90 through it's paces at high speeds so as to demonstrate that their SUV could avoid a moose and not roll over.

I used to rock a prancing moose, and then i realized how much of a ricer I looked like. I mean, you see a Volvo driving by you with exhaust, and then you see the 'ferrari' logo on the side of it, and you're just shaking your head at that point. It degrades Volvo drivers as a whole. I mean, it's cool within a Volvo crowd, but outside of that small community, it's really lame. <p>My Advice? Get them in magnets, that way you can remove them when you want.

Re: (cmurphy2266)

To each they own i guess.. i like them and i dont think they look ricer at all...its not like you got something on there that's representing something the car is not....i mean if i had like a porche "turbo" emblem or an actual ferrari horse or DUB or vinyl splashed across my ride then i can see where the ridicule would come in... but i think its within taste and takes nothing away from the car... all i have received is compliments about them...

Re: (NJGreenBudd)

I just ordered two yellow and lback ones from that site in 4inch. I do like the black and white but with a black car i figured it would probably look better with the yellow to stand out a bit more. Now i just have to decide if i want the stripes over the front wheel wells or not
