go for it! but I would say upgrade your exhaust first, which I see you are considering, however you might be in for quite a lot if you need custom work done.

man if you can pull off #2 that would be totally unique and sexy. If you don't have money worries go for it! One thing i suggest is that you should also follow up with the rest of the lip kit to complete the look.

Re: (sanatarium)

Buy a different diffuser, $1800 for the C70 one is highway robbery. I am going to eventually have mine look like the crappy photoshop below, and it will cost a ton less than $1800. Obviously just trade the custom tips I have for quads and it would basically look like what you are going for.<br> <IMG SRC="http://photos-h.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc1/hs009.snc1/2875_75382444441_775614441_1689623_7516841_n.jpg" BORDER="0">

Re: (carreragt7)

square pipes are for acuras? lol<p>I would check to make sure the curve of the c70 diffuser lines up with the curve of the s40 rear skirt. If I'm not mistaken the c70 has a curvier bum? Also mounting two plastic panels together and having to make your own clips will be a nightmare.

That is like saying 4 wheels are only for Fords, blue gauges are only for ricers, quad tips are only for Corvettes, etc. Just because one company might decide to try a different shape or style doesn't mean that they are the only ones. My tips come from a vehicle that had the square-ish shape before Acura even had square tips on any of their vehicles. I'm a design student, so I know all about brand identity and whatnot. Now if you are talking about something that is actually trademarked by a brand such as angel eyes and BMW, then you are on the right track...<p>Almost everyone who has seen my tips in person or in pics likes them, and I personally love them, which is what matters most. Step outside of the Volvo conservative box and try to do something more unique. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://i126.photobucket.com/albums/p95/madmattferris/Volvo%20GTG%20July%2012th%202009/IMG_0365.jpg" BORDER="0">

Re: (carreragt7)

Didn't say I didn't like 'em, cause I do <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> . Sarcasm got lost there I think. Funny you should mention angel eyes, cause I'm planning on modding in some LEDs around my lamps. Not quite the whole way like bmw, but 3 quarters with the gap facing toward the upper-outside. (nobody steal my idea!) I'm trying to step outside the box but it's expensive! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: (thisdothack)

Sorry, I wasn't taking any offense, I just like to mention stuff like that for other people's benefit since it seems if anyone tries new stuff in the volvo community it is almost always shunned. I try to be a nice guy, so sorry if that came off rude or anything. I won't lie, I just woke up a couple minutes before I typed it. I better go back and make sure my normal grumpiness upon awaking didn't get through, lol.<br>I like the idea you have for lights (don't worry, not in my plans) as I have always liked angel eyes and LEDs. There are many ways we can incorporate LEDs into our lights, I personally really like the Heico S80:<br> <IMG SRC="http://www.zercustoms.com/news/images/Volvo/HEICO-Volvo-S80-1.jpg" BORDER="0"> <br>Which is also one of the many cars/designs that made me think of different shaped exhaust tips (but I don't think their tips are functional, and mine will be):<br> <IMG SRC="http://www.zercustoms.com/news/images/Volvo/HEICO-Volvo-S80-2.jpg" BORDER="0">

Yeah, I love everything about that car, but I would rather have it in black or white with gunmetal or satin black wheels.

Re: S40 T5 Quad Exhaust and Diffuser (futuregeneration1)

I think you should ditch the Medusa's and get a set of Sculptors ......... It will match the back end better <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/rolleyes.gif" BORDER="0">
